Food-related Halloween costumes

My little foodie-in-the-making decided he wanted to be a sushi chef for Halloween. So even though I am barely a beginner sewer, I attempted to make him a happi coat and other bits. Who else has a food-related trick or treater in their house?

  1. My daughter went as an ice cream cone last year but, with the fickleness of youth, has decided that she must be Raven from Teen Titans this year. She still has some sensibility, though. For her school's Literary Mystery Day (aka Halloween) she's going to be Eloise.

    1. We have no little kids, but for an adult Halloween party a couple of years ago I dressed as a bottle of wine - and my wife was a corkscrew!

        1. Last year, I shared my annual Halloween costume thru out college: French toast.

          Flat twin bed sheet sewn shut with cutouts for arms, head, legs.
          Paint and markers in black & brown & yellow to draw "crust" around the border of the sheet like a slice of toast with a pad of butter drawn in the center.
          Brown tights and slippers on my feet.
          I carried a small bottle of maple syrup in my hand and wore a French baret.

          1. Earlier this week I did an article on Halloween costumes and related the tale of a waiter who served us as a table with his head on a silver platter. Too funny and by squatting down he was able to create the illusion of his head coming out of the table. Here is more detail if you want to try it. The tale is near the bottom of the article.
