A photo of a traveler in a homemade “hazmat” suit at Dulles International Airport outside Washington, D.C., is making the internet rounds as hundreds of real suits are selling out online.

The female passenger was spotted sitting down in an airline terminal and dressed in what appeared to be a full-length white onesie, topped with a blue rain poncho, blue latex gloves and a white face mask.

The photo, taken by Hall Carter and obtained by The Daily Caller, immediately went viral, receiving both mockery and admiration.

“Lady just chilling at Dulles in her homemade Hazmat suit,” tweeted Joe Henchman, who appeared to be the photographer.

“Probably a good idea to wear that into Dulles just under normal circumstances,” one commenter tweeted.

“I like the gap between the gloves and the cuffs,” another joked.

Dulles is one of five U.S. airports that has implemented “enhanced screenings” for travelers from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Thomas Eric Duncan, the first patient diagnosed in the U.S. who later died, passed through Dulles on his way from Liberia to Dallas, DCist reported.

Between 15 and 55 passengers travel from Ebola-ridden countries to Dulles every day, according to reports.
