Ashley Dever, a sophomore at Barry University, receives a Pfizer-BioNtech COVID-19 vaccine at the Jackson Memorial Hospital on April 15, 2021 in Miami, Florida. Jackson Memorial Hospital began a vaccination initiative with all the colleges/universities in Miami-Dade County, in which all students will be able to get the vaccine, as long as they show a valid student ID and a license. Universities and colleges across the country will be deciding if they will mandate students returning to campus be vaccinated.

When it comes to Halloween costumes, some people like to go scary. Others prefer the sexy route, and the latest sexy costume is definitely very relevant to today’s times. Maybe a bit controversial too.

Lingerie and costumes retailer 3Wishes just debuted what they are calling the “Sexy Vaccine Costume.” It sells for $55.95 and is just a nude minidress, with a headband and syringe sticking out of it.

“We wanted to make the costume as simple and wearable as possible,” 3Wishes CMO and co-founder Sarah Chamberlain, explained to Yahoo. “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.”

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 told Yahoo: “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.
