Thats whats happening over at anytimecostumes.com, a costume retailer that boasts tons of Santa, elf, Mrs. Claus, and other holiday costumes.
According to spokesperson Meredith Abraham, professional Santas still have money to burn on their holiday get-ups, mostly because theyre shopping on a corporate budget.
However, personal Santas like a mom, dad, or uncle that dress up for their families, are scaling back on their St. Nick duds.
While theyre still buying the red velvet outfit, many are passing on extra accessories like Kris Kringles goodie bag, belt, and suspenders.
Abraham also says many customers are going for naughtier costumes this year, not nice ones.
Their sexy Frosty the Snow Vixen outfit is popular with the ladies, as is their naughty Mrs. Claus get-up.
The site also offers Biblical Christmas costumes, although Abraham doesnt see them making a sexy version of the Virgin Mary one any time soon.
