NEW YORK, Oct. 6 (UPI) -- New York costume shops said their most in-demand get-ups this Halloween season have thus far been costumes based on actor Charlie Sheen.

Robert McCorkle, 39, manager of the Abracadabra Super Store, said eight of his 12 Sheen masks, which come with sports coats and thin ties, have already been rented out at $65 each, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.

Costume shop Ricky's NYC said a costume dubbed "The Charlie," which includes a mask and a black-and-white shirt similar to one often seen on Sheen, has already garnered interest from patrons and Halloween Adventure marketing director Melody Bleak said the store's Sheen mask is expected to be a top item.

"We have a full latex mask, we have the shirt that says 'winning,'" he said. "It's going to be very hot this year."
