"Charlie Sheen" Proving to Be Winning Halloween Costume 

ABC/Richard Cartwright (NEW YORK) -- While it seems for now that his tiger blood-swilling days are behind him, Charlie Sheen's famed flame-out earlier this year will live again this Halloween.

Steven Silverstein, the C.E.O. of Spirit Halloween, the country's largest seasonal Halloween retailer, tells that costumes and accessories celebrating the former Two and a Half Men star are flying off the shelves. "His 'winning' attitude certainly struck a nerve," Silverstein quips.

The retailer not only sells a Charlie Sheen mask, but also a "#winning" tee shirt and a pack of "Winning" cigarettes to help complete the look.
