Online retailer Yandy has turned some of the year's trending topics into Halloween costumes.
With just weeks to go before Halloween, the company has unveiled a new hand sanitizer costume — inspired by the copious amounts of disinfectant people around the world have used amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The costume, which retails for $69.95, includes a mint green bodysuit, a matching clear vinyl flared dress with velcro straps that reads: "Yandy hand sanitizer. Kills 99.99% of germs," and a bottle of hand sanitizer.
"Did you disinfect from head to toe cause you're glowing with that germ-free vibe!" the costume's description reads.
"Just a pump is all it takes to put bacteria at bay. Wash away the dirt of the day, and soak in that squeaky clean feeling in this exclusive Hand Sanitizer costume."
On Twitter, the costume was met with mixed reactions, with most people expressing their amusement over the timely yet bizarre outfit.
"A sexy hand sanitizer costume is not anything my mind could have imagined before 2020," one person tweeted, while another said: "Imagine trying to explain to yourself one year ago this costume. Sexy hand sanitizer."
In addition to the hand sanitizer outfit, the retailer is also offering another costume inspired by lockdown trends — banana bread.
"Well aren't you looking hot and homemade? There's nothing a gooey loaf of bread can't cure.
"Don't just sit around in isolation, heat your oven to 350 cause this hottie's about to take you to carb heaven in this exclusive Banana Bread Boredom costume featuring a silver metallic pull-on tube dress with soft brown velvet front, oversized yellow banana peel detailing, and a curve-hugging mini length," the description for the metallic and brown mini dress reads.
"Just 60 mins to perfection!"
While the costumes are somewhat related to the pandemic, Yandy revealed last month that people shouldn't expect a coronavirus costume, as it's not "sexy."
"I don't think there's anything sexy about it," Pilar Quintana-Williams, Yandy's vice president of merchandising, told Business Insider.
Quintana-Williams did say the company wants to bring "humor" and "lightheartedness" to the holiday, however.
Although Halloween has not been canceled amid the pandemic, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has warned that festive activities such as door-to-door trick-or-treating, crowded indoor costume parties, haunted houses, and hayrides are all "high-risk."
