The costume is being sold for USD 69.95 (Rs 5,116), as mentioned by Independent. “Just a pump is all it takes to put bacteria at bay. Wash away the dirt of the day, and soak in that squeaky clean feeling in this exclusive Hand Sanitiser costume,” reads the costume’s description.
Not just this, the retail brand has also come up with another costume based on banana bread, a food trend that became highly popular across the world during the coronavirus lockdown, as people took to cooking various dishes at home. This costume is a silver metallic pull-on tube dress with a brown velvet front featuring oversized yellow banana detailing.
“Well, aren’t you looking hot and homemade? There’s nothing a gooey loaf of bread can’t cure. Don’t just sit around in isolation, heat your oven to 350 cause this hottie’s about to take you to carb heaven in this exclusive Banana Bread Boredom costume…,” the description for the costume reads.
Twitterati, naturally went berserk on seeing these outfits. Here’s how they reacted:
Please no hand sanitizer costumes this year, we have been terrified of the pandemic enough..

Yesterday it was a sexy hand sanitizer costume, today it’s a sexy banana bread costume. How many days until @Yandy has a “sexy fly on Mike Pence’s head” costume? I’m waiting.

Can we talk?
I am sick of the sexism and misogyny involved in women’s and girls’ Halloween costumes. Nobody wants to be “sexy hand sanitizer” for Halloween. This is just gross. https://t.co/KFlULmohtJ
