What's hot this Halloween? 

Big Bird is seeing a surge of popularity this Halloween, and it's all thanks to Mitt Romney.

Costume stores say ever since Romney mentioned the Sesame Street character in the first debate, orders have been flying in.

The retail price range for the costumes is between $40 and $100 dollars, but store owners expect prices to rise because of high demand.
