Even though Lisa is a Little girl, she wants to wear the male LION costume because she Loves the Look of the male LION'S mane.
The chief role of the male LION is to defend territory and protect the female LIONS from other males.
Male LIONS have a most unusual feature designed specifically for this purpose, which is their mane.
In nature, the male LION is a Large well-muscled cat, and can be up to 9 feet in Length and weighing an average of 415 pounds.
While size is an obvious advantage, it requires much more food so the bulky mane serves a twofold purpose.
It gives the appearance of size without the increased body weight and serves to protect from the claws and teeth of other male LIONS.
Little Lisa doesn't care why the male LION has a mane; she is just Looking forward to Halloween night when she can go trick or treating for Licorice, Lollipops, Lemon Drops and Life Savers.
