Yes, The Sexy College Scandal Halloween Costume Is Real

You can always count on to bring you the sexy Halloween costume you never knew you needed (probably because you really don’t). From Mr. Rogers to fake news, the online retailer regularly does the most when it comes to ridiculous outfits.

However, their latest offering of the sexy college admissions scandal costume might just take the cake. 

If you’ve been living under a rock and you’re not familiar with the college admission scandals, it basically centers on celebrities like Full House alum Lori Loughlin and Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman paying Ivy League universities tons of money in “donations” to ensure their underachieving kids would be able to attend. Why wouldn’t you turn that into a costume? 

“Oops, you can’t always trust those motherly instincts. Turns out fame and intelligence don’t go hand in hand!” the product description reads.

“Bribe your way to the admissions office and score the ultimate scholarly achievement (the best mom award!) in this exclusive College Scandal costume featuring a red-orange crop top with ‘INMATE’ printed in black, ‘MOM OF THE YEAR’ printed in white and crossed out, fitted long sleeves, and matching high waisted pants with an elastic waist and ‘Yandy University’ printed in black. Can’t row your way out of this one!”

This is literally just a pair of bright orange leggings and a crop top with some cheap iron-on decals on it that they’ve somehow called a costume.

Also, I’m not sure who the intended customer is here. Do 21-year-old girls think, “Damn, that college admissions scandal is so cool—I wish there was a costume of this, but a sexy one”? Somehow, I doubt it. 

Obviously Yandy isn’t necessarily a bastion of good taste or even common sense, but of all the weird costumes they’ve put out, this one seems the most pointless. I wonder if anyone will buy it!
