A reader responded to our list of the sluttiest costumes on the Ricky's Halloween website by Tweeting a photo of a truly remarkable get-up spotted for sale at the Ricky's pop-up on Flatbush and Bergen.
Ricky's has named this look the "lumberjack wood pecker," and they're definitely not talking about the bird. Actually, what they're talking about is pants with a built-in beer cozy—kind of like the "Beer Shlong" fellow, but with ever-so-slightly more of a theme. Oh, and it also comes with a hat. You know, because otherwise it just wouldn't be realistic.
