Thinking of being a sexified version of the beloved Sesame Street character Big Bird for Halloween? Think again.'s "Exclusive Yellow Dress and Stockings" (See: Right) has come under fire from Sesame Street's legal team for being a. unlicensed by the company and b. waaaay too sexy. A Sesame Street rep told Buzzfeed, "our legal team has sent a cease and desist letter to the website selling them, will monitor the site, and follow up accordingly to make sure the items in question are removed." So that political statement/great way to show of your incredibly toned shoulders is off the table. Good thing there are all these other costumes to choose from. [Buzzfeed]
