Halloween is just a few weeks away and with the election madness in full swing, it's tempting to lump the two together. Why not dress up as one of the presidential candidates — Democrat Hillary Clinton or Republican Donald Trump — and have a bit of fun just days before the Nov. 8 election?
Among the options for Trump and Clinton costumers are some in the "sexy" variety, and boy are they ... something.
Yandy.com put out a "Donna T. Rumpshaker" costume last year and it was their best-selling outfit, because people are the worst. This year Yandy.com has come out with the "Donna T. 2.0" and a low-cut Clinton-inspired pantsuit costume. At $69.95 for the sexy-lady-Trump get-up and $60 for the Clinton gear, you better be willing to pay a decent penny to garner confused, dumbstruck looks with your political Halloween costume.
"Costumes these days are often about capturing the timely story and transforming it into something fun and sexy," Yandy.com founder and CEO Chad Horstman told the Hill. "With this year’s presidential election in particular, it’s clear our customers are looking for any opportunity they can to have fun with it and lighten the mood this Halloween."
Yandy added the Clinton costume to its collection because of popular demand, Horstman said.
"The more feedback we received, the more it was clear that [customers] were looking for something that captured both sides of this year’s political rivalry and that could be worn this Halloween in tandem," Horstman said.
Of course, there are ways to dress up as our nation's next president without going the sexy route and possibly embarassing your parents. All you really need is either an oversized suit and some self-tanner, or a pantsuit and perhaps a hair scrunchie. Playful variations of Trump and Clinton costumes — such as going as Clinton's emails or Trump's taco bowl — are another option.
Want to really go all in? There's always a Clinton or Trump mask, but be warned, they're truly the stuff of nightmares.
