What’s the first word that comes to mind when you think of a goldfish? Pet? Orange? Scaly? How about sexy? That’s right, the “sexy” Halloween costume craze has officially gotten out of hand thanks to the “Sexy Goldfish” ensemble—and the internet isn’t quite sure what to make of it.
Several “Sexy Goldfish” costumes recently made a splash on social media and, while they’re not new to this Halloween season, many people expressed their bewilderment and excitement over the costumes’ uniqueness. One such costume, the Deluxe Sexy Goldfish Costume from Yandy, features a shimmery orange romper and goldfish head hoodie. The Cozy Dress Goldfish Costume from Spirit Halloween takes a comfier approach and includes a short orange dress and decorative fins.
Another version features a sparkling tutu and arm/ankle cuffs, which ensures a swimmingly good time for all adult trick-or-treaters. “This sexy goldfish costume is anything but fishy; it’s fabulous,” the description reads. “Step out of your itty bitty bowl and take a dive into an exotic tank, one filled with bright coral and other aquatic beauties. Who cares if you’re just a goldfish?”
These goldfish costumes aren’t the first “sexy” Halloween costumes to turn heads this year. Others include a Melania Trump-inspired “Model Wife” costume, “Stranger Things”-themed “Upside Down Honey” costume and a Pennywise-inspired “Dancing Sewer Clown” costume. Of course, there’s plenty of other Halloween costumes—sexy or not—that should be considered completely ridiculous or offensive/inappropriate to wear.
