Halloween is no stranger to sexy (insert anything) costumes. Despite this, the costume makers at Yandy.com seem to have taken the typical sexy Halloween costume to a new level this year with their introduction of Sexy Big Bird. After Mitt Romney’s now infamous Big Bird mention at the first presidential debate the internet exploded with countless memes. They resurrected our childhood memories and made us all laugh. This should have been enough for everyone to walk away from the Romney-induced Big Bird wave, but it wasn’t. Yandy.com has gone on to bring everyone a Sexy Big Bird Halloween, saying: 

The three-piece, sexy Big Bird Sesame Street costume includes a dress textured dress with pink, sheer waist sash, faux flower detail at shoulder, multi ruffle skirt, pink and red striped, stirrup knee highs with bow tops and Big Bird character headband. Learning the ABC’s has never been this sexy.

In an attempt to salvage the childhood memories of people worldwide, Sesame Street has fired back against the introduction of Sexy Big Bird and ordered the costume be removed from the website immediately. Unfortunately, the costume is still up on the site, waiting to shatter childhood memories at Halloween parties everywhere.
