The truth is, I often get annoyed by how some people will seek ANY opportunity to be something sexy for Halloween. I can gripe about it, or I can laugh about it, and I’m going with laughing it off, because the business of sexy Halloween costumes is BIG.
There is LITERALLY a sexy Halloween costume for everything. Sexy Donald Trump! Sexy Pizza Rat! Even Sexy Remote Control! Hilarious and ridiculous all at the same time.
Yandy.com is pretty much OWNING the market, and laughing all the way to the bank. Of course, there’s a sexy Donald Trump costume, which looks like it was a leftover sexy postman costume combined with a crazy-ass wig.
The infamous ‘is it a gold dress or a blue dress’ is being offered, as is Pizza Rat, which I assume was originally a mouse costume, until Yandy‘s design department got an emergency call for some attachable pizza slices. (Pizza rat is inspired by a NYC rat that was videotaped trying to carry a slice of pizza down subway stairs. It’s the only time I’ve ever been rooting for a rat outside of the Muppets and the Disney film Ratatouille)

Sexy Remote Control is actually an e-bay find, not from Yandy, so if you’re pining to have someone press your buttons in all the wrong places, go there. I worry that the Mute button is going to get a lot of over-pressing from obnoxious male party-goers.
There are also sexy Minions. Wait. Let me rephrase that. The costume makers never own the rights, so the names of the costumes become even MORE hilarious. Instead of a ‘minion’ costume, it’s called “One Eyed master’s Helper Costume.” Well played, Yandy!
Another favorite is ‘sexy mentally insane person.’ (I’m calling it that… Yandy calls it “sexy strait jacket costume.’ I’ve always said mental illness never gets the media attention it deserves. This isn’t likely to change with this costume, but it will no doubt give straitjackets a shot at being the fashion trend of fall 2015.
