What do Osama bin Laden, Heisenberg of “Breaking Bad,” pizza, Barney, and corn on the cob have in common? They’re all among the sexed-up costume choices this trick-or-treat season.

Every Halloween season, costumes run the gamut from weird to sexy to controversial, and this year we'll likely see plenty of scantily clad Miley Cyrus spoofers in the mix.

The season's first sexy-costume controversy happened in late September when Walmart came under fire for stocking its shelves with a “Naughty Leopard” Halloween costume for little girls. Comprised of a full-skirted dress and headpiece, the $19.97 costume was pulled from stores after the chain received complaints from patrons that it over-sexualized toddlers.

“It was never our intention to offend anyone and we apologize to any customers who may have been offended by the name of the costume," a Walmart spokesperson told KATU.

Another controversy erupted in late September when the Sikh community put pressure on Walmart to pull its "Turban Beard Adult Halloween Instant Costume” from shelves. The costume bearing a resemblance to Osama bin Laden was eventually pulled after being deemed “offensive to 9/11 victims" and described as encouraging "negative stereotypes about turbans and beards that have led to violence and discrimination against Sikhs and other minorities."

And it doesn’t stop there. We scoured the Internet and found some other bizarre, unnecessarily sexy and controversial new costumes that make the “sexy Big Bird” conundrum of last year look like child’s play.

Rajdeep Singh, director of law and policy at The Sikh Coalition, told The Huffington Post: "If you lost a loved one during the 9/11 attacks or during our nation's war against al Qaeda, or if someone attacked your father in a hate crime because he wears a turban, I doubt this costume would make you comfortable."

This costume, a black bodycon dress with a skeleton image on the front and a measuring tape around the waist, ruffled some feathers when the National Eating Disorders Association discredited it for spoofing a deadly eating disorder that more than 10 million U.S. citizens suffer from. While the costume was discontinued in 2007 by its manufacturer Dreamgirl, it’s still available for purchase in some stores, CNN reported.

Consumerist, which broke the news of the sexy toddler get-up, wrote that they were almost "more troubled that Walmart was calling the costume a 'leopard' when it really doesn't look anything like a leopard at all."
