The "Once Again Asking" costume set, sold by the site Dolls Kill, promises that wearers can become a "viral internet meme" a la the Vermont Independent.

Without naming Sanders, the get-up — sold among an array of risqué ensembles, including a "Sadistic School Girl" uniform and a "Sensible Seductress Superhero" disguise — appears directly inspired by his outfit at Joe BidenJoe BidenBiden to provide update Monday on US response to omicron variant Restless progressives eye 2024 Emhoff lights first candle in National Menorah-lighting ceremony MORE's presidential inauguration in January. 


The $85 Halloween version of Sanders's inauguration style includes "a grey coat, cozy mittens, and a face mask for a total Insta-worthy moment."

A snapshot of the 80-year-old lawmaker sporting a gray parka and oversized, repurposed wool mittens while at Biden's big day became an online sensation.

Sanders defended his sartorial choices at the time, saying in his home state "we know something about the cold" and aren't "so concerned about good fashion."

The 2020 White House hopeful even got in on his viral mittens moment, selling a $45 sweatshirt in his campaign store bearing an image of his Inauguration Day pose and donating the proceeds to a Vermont charity.
