Dressing like the coronavirus is just one step too many, apparently.

Fashion retailer Yandy is generally not shy about sexy or controversial Halloween costumes inspired by current events and public figures. But this week, company executives said they had no plans to sell racy coronavirus suits.

“I don’t think there is anything sexy about it,” Pilar Quintana-Williams, Yandy’s vice president of merchandising, told Business Insider.

That’s not to say the company won’t make more provocative costumes based on big moments this year.

In fact, Yandy has released several costumes inspired by events of 2020 and pop culture already, including the recently released “Banned App” costume, inspired by TikTok, and the “Tiger Queen” and “Coolest Cat” costumes, based on the popular Netflix series “Tiger King.”

“I think it’s been a tough year for everyone in their 40s, with all the changes,” Quintana-Williams told Business Insider. “The stakes are therefore high. But again, we want to bring humor and we want to bring lightness to the holidays. ”

According to Business Insider, Yandy has already released more than 500 new costumes this year. For the first time, the company also started selling sexy men’s masks and costumes.

Some of Yandy’s previous outfits included a sexy Mr. Rogers-inspired costume last year and a ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ themed costume in 2018 – though that costume was taken off the website for being too controversial.
