Don’t even bother putting the last-minute touches on your garters-and-lace, cleavage-accentuating costume—this guy has already taken home the “sexiest” prize. 

The man behind the legs, Jamie Kruger, told the Daily Dot, “Every Halloween, my sister tends to catalog the newest ‘sexy’ costumes. Some are just absurd, others are seen through the critical lens of being a parent to a young teen girl. The idea for this costume was just the natural evolution of the pop-up store ‘sexy costume’ formula. But it’s also just hilarious to put fishnet legs on an inanimate object.”

The “Sexy Potato” on the bag is a nod to artist Obvious Plant, who also has some feelings about the absurdity of sexy costumes that have gotten out of hand. 

Kruger, an advertising creative, says he wore the costume to work, where everyone is very into dressing up. “Major props to folks who rock those high heels every day,” he said at just a little past lunchtime.
