If you're not going to be a Binder Full of Women this Halloween, then go as the next best Mitt Romney reference.
Oh, but wait… you can't!
That's because Big Bird costumes are pretty much sold out all over!
In case you've already forgotten the first presidential debate, Mittens made a reference to the big yellow bird after he talked about cutting the budget to PBS.
And now, it seems like everyone has the same costume idea this year because one of the most popular costume makers Disguise claims that the costume is already sold out on their website. Brand manger Madde Gerety added:
"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."
The problem is the costume is made in China so with the holiday being just a week away, it's impossible to order more to keep up with demand.
Oh well, guess you can just get creative and make your own costume. Then again, there's always the ol' horse and bayonet costume!
