A sexy incarnation of Bernie Sanders at Joe Biden's Inauguration has become 2021's hottest Halloween costume.

On the off chance that your memory needs refreshing, Sanders, 80, went viral earlier this year after people around the world were charmed by a pair mittens that he wore to Biden's inaguration.

Now, like so many once-innocent items, Sanders' inauguration outfit - which was also the subject to memes aplenty earlier this year - has been turned into a sexy Halloween costume, and it's almost certainly a guaranteed hit.

The costume has been reimagined by Dolls Kill, who have dubbed the look the "Trickz N' Treatz Once Again Asking Costume Set".

However, looking this iconic doesn't come cheap - and if you are looking to dress up as your favorite senator this Halloween, you'll have to fork out $85.

The outfit specifics contain a polyester gray coat and mittens (which, unlike Sanders' actual mittens, were presumbably not made by a schoolteacher), and a light blue mask.

The outfit's description says that it was created for "you to be a viral internet meme," adding: "This political chairman costume comes with a grey coat, cozy mittens, and a face mask for a total Insta-worthy moment."

Needless to say, the costume did not go unnoticed on Twitter.

One Twitter user wrote: "why did they make bernie as a hot got e-girl costume I'm wheezing [sic]."

A second added: "Well, I found my Halloween costume."

A third joked: "You are cordially invited to my Sexy Bernie Sanders-themed birthday party."

Meanwhile, a fourth slammed the price, writing: "HOW IS THIS $85 WHEN I HAVE A COAT, MITTENS, AND NO PANTS AT HOME?!?! Bernie would not approve."

A fifth wrote: "Bernie Sanders @ the inauguration ceremony is gonna be my Halloween costume this year."

In a statement to Vice, Sanders' representative said: "If fans of Sen. Sanders' mittens are looking for a real scare this Halloween, they should see how hard the wealthy and world’s biggest corporations are fighting to stop Congress from finally addressing the long-neglected needs of the working class.

"I'm shuddering at my desk just thinking about it."

Other once-innocent Halloween dress-options that have been given sexy makeovers also include hand santizer and Donald Trump himself.
