Food Themed Halloween Costumes

So, I've been seeing a lot Halloween threads lately, and inspired by my own Halloween costumes both last year and this year, I decided to start a thread on food themed Halloween costumes.

Have you ever dressed up in a food themed Halloween costume? Please share! If not, what are some of your favorites that you have seen?

Last year I went as a lime wedge for a tequila shot. I had a sequined dress that was designed to look like a lime wedge. I then carried around a big bottle of Jose Cuervo, wore a light up plastic shot glass around my neck, and voila! That's right Halloween costumes are nothing if not classy!

This year I will be doing a wine theme, with the base of my costume being grapes. It's a 2 piece outfit with lots of straps on the arms and around the thighs to look like vines, and then the top and bottom both have grape like appliques on them. I will embellish with wine things, but I haven't decided exactly what all I am going to do yet.

  1. The wine costume sounds great. Watch out for guys dressed as corkscrews. ;)

    1. Lime wedge for tequila, wine. No wonder guys keep buying you drinks. LOL

      Back to the topic, I haven't worn food related costumes, but a buddy of mine had a hotdog suit he wore a few years back. A friend of my son once went as a bucket of KFC chicken. His parents are artists and made it. Stunning in its verisimilitude. Have a picture of it somewhere. Need to find it.

        Yeah, these 2 similar themed costumes 2 years in a row were not done on purpose, trust me. I did the lime wedge last year, and then this year I was browsing costumes and I just kind of fell in love with the grapes costume, so here we are again!

        The KFC bucket sounds like fun. Please do post a picture when you find one!

      2. Whatever year Lady Gaga did the meat dress thing, I saw a listing on ebay by a woman making replicas, so I did that. It was really neat, she use a brownish red fabric and did the fat marbling in white glitter paint.
        I've got to find a picture!

          That does sound awesome! I would love to see a pic of yours, as well if you can find one!

        2. There was the couple that came as a Mounds bar and an Almond Joy. Think about it. One has nuts and the other doesn't.

          1. Not that I would wear them, but I've seen people go as a bunch of grapes, using green or purple balloons pinned to a matching sweat suit.

            Bag of gumballs: A big clear trash bag with clear bags stuff at the bottom to "fluff" it out, and then colored balloons inside. Or use the small oblong balloons for jellybeans.

            I had a coworker once who came to work dressed as a bottle of VitaminWater. she found the costume online somewhere. It was great!
