'Sexy' Bernie Sanders outfit could be scariest costume this Halloween

It could well be the scariest Halloween costume of the year - a racy take on Bernie Sanders' now-infamous outfit from Joe Biden's inauguration.

According to the costume description, the look is meant for "you to be a viral internet meme! This political chairman costume comes with a grey coat, cozy mittens and a face mask for a total insta-worthy moment".

The idea behind the costume came from the image of the 80-year-old Vermont senator's outfit at the event in January.

Memes and jokes based on his choice of clobber went viral at the time.

And e-girl site Dolls Kill is hoping their version - dubbed the "Trickz N' Treatz Once Again Asking Costume Set - will have a similar impact for its wearers.

Judging by early opinions on Twitter it probably will.

"Why did they make Bernie as a hot got e-girl costume I'm wheezing," one posted.

Another was less impressed, writing: "it doesn't even come with the chair???? This is simply a coat."
