Sexy Deadmau5 Costume Is Everything That's Wrong With Halloween (PHOTOS)

Every Halloween is a race to the bottom for costume retailers who take sexual objectification to new lows.

But a costume that is basically "Sexy Deadmau5" is among the worst we've seen yet.

The women's outfit, which is labelled as "Sexy DJ" by, combines a shiny polyester skirt with a DJ deck pattern alongside a sportsbra with a pouch where you can hold your iPhone. These two pieces alone cost US$78.95.

But if you want to complete the look, you can add an "Animal DJ Hood" that looks very much like the headgear that Deadmau5 wears at his shows. It's made with a "fuzzy red fabric with giant ears," and has two lights that can turn on and off. It costs US$68.95.

The DJ has rightly mocked this horrible costume on his Twitter account.

This is not the only costume that passes for innovation on Here are a few other examples that are just as offensive.

Then again, maybe the joke's on us. The website says "Sexy DJ Costume" is already out of stock.
