PHOENIX, Oct. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Yandy.com, one of the world's largest online retailers of sexy Halloween costumes, is utilizing the growing and ever present social media world to reward one customer who has experienced the trauma a costume fail during a previous Halloween with a head-to-toe costume makeover for them and 10 of their friends.
With social media being such a large part of the Halloween experience, Yandy is taking note and asking customers to post a past failed costume attempt to Instagram tagging @Yandy, use the hashtag #helpmeyandy and explain why they deserve a costume makeover.

"This year we thought we'd reward one lucky customer who had the unfortunate experience of a costume fail so that they might 'Win the Halloweekend' with one of our costumes."
