When it comes to Halloween costumes, some people like to go scary, while others prefer the sexy route, and the latest sexy costume is definitely very relevant to today's times, if not a bit controversial.
Lingerie and costumes retailer 3Wishes just debuted what they are calling the “Sexy Vaccine Costume,” which sells for $55.95 and is basically just a nude minidress, with a headband that has a syringe sticking out of it.
"We wanted to make the costume as simple and wearable as possible," 3Wishes CMO and co-founder Sarah Chamberlain, explains. "We ended up with the nude dress because it could be interpreted as an arm with the vaccine going into it. It's a little obscure but instantly recognizable."
While the costume doesn’t specifically say it’s a COVID-19 vaccine costume, Chamberlain does acknowledge that it was inspired by it. “We obviously take the pandemic very seriously but with everything being so divisive, we feel adding in a little humor can lighten the mood," she says, noting, “we thought that this may be a more lighthearted way for party-goers to pay homage to what we've all been dealing with for the last year and a half."
- And that’s not the only timely news story that has inspired a sexy costume by 3Wishes. They also have a “Sexy Billionaire Space Costume,” which sells for $74.95 and incudes a blue space suit and cowboy hat.
