BuzzFeed reports that Sesame Street Workshop's legal team has contacted Yandy.com regarding its "Exclusive Yellow Dress and Stockings" costume (a.k.a. Sexy Big Bird), sending "a cease and desist letter to the website selling them ... [they] will monitor the site, and follow up accordingly to make sure the items in question are removed." What sort of lesson is this teaching our youth? That it's unacceptable to wander the neighborhood clad in pieces of a body stocking and taking candy from strangers? For those still interested in dressing up as a 3-year-old's personal hero/the love of Mitt Romney's life, Disguise.com offers a variety of officially licensed Big Bird costumes.
