Yandy.com is thesite best known for its cheekily inappropriate sexy Halloween costumes. Sexy Hamburger, sexy pizza, sexy Snowman from Frozen, sexy dolphin, etc... They looked at last year's sales for October 2013 and broke out over 95,000 costume sales by ZIP code. What they found was that although large metro areas had overall the biggest sales, when you went ZIP by ZIP, it was actually college towns that bought the most sexy costumes. Which makes....... total sense.
At Washington State University, the sexy pirate sold 4 times more than the second best seller. "This increase in sexy pirate costume orders led to speculation that the spike was driven by students paying homage to famed WSU football coach Mike Leach's much-publicized affinity for pirates," Yandy said in a press release.
Of note to New Yorkers: the one ZIP code with a huge concentration of sales that wasn't a college town? Murray Hill.
