Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, apparently made a huge splash on this year’s Halloween costume department. After his comments that made Big Bird the symbol of his fight against government spending, Big Bird costumes flew off the shelves of companies licensed to sell the Sesame Street character’s Halloween costumes.
CNNMoney reported that after the debate that took place on October 3rd, Google searches for the phrase “Big Bird costume” increased by 600%. The costume industry rejoices at the dramatic increase in demand, as said by Maddie Gerety, brand manager at Disguise, the official licensee and supplier of Big Bird costumes for kids and adults:
“This has absolutely become our biggest year ever for Big Bird costumes. If only we had a crystal ball to predict this was going to happen.”
Big Bird costumes are priced at $39.99 to $89.99. Although chances are slim, you might still be able to get your Big Bird costume just days before Halloween.
