I’ve just today realized that I’ve never had a food-related Halloween costume. I once dressed my infant son as a pumpkin but I’ve always had scary costumes myself.

One year my brother was a marshmallow but it was a costume of convenience: he was five and just out of the hospital from having pneumonia so my mom dressed him in a fuzzy white ‘fun’ fur coat of hers and threw a white hat on him so that he could go out trick or treating without catching a chill. Most people thought he was a Russian czar but he didn’t mind; he was just glad to be allowed out of bed!

Some of the best food inspired costumes I’ve ever seen are here on thee Serious Eats blog.

How about you? Any good food inspired Halloween costumes in your past or present?

  1. I’ve never worn a food-related costume, but my sister once went out as a grape. She wore all green and then pinned green balloons all over her body. It was a great costume, but she had to stand up all night.

    I love the marshmallow story. Your mom is a genius.

    I’m not much of a costume person, but I think if I were to wear a food-themed costume I’d velcro cookies to myself. That way if I got hungry…

    Love the marshmallow story too. I’ll be he was adorable … and so is that little sushi tyke above!

    I’ve never dressed as anything food related either. I’m all about the pretty or sexy on Halloween … I see it as a good excuse for wearing ridiculously long false eyelashes and fishnets! ;)

    I went as a mushroom once. I had nearly forgotten about that….

  5. It looks like food inspired costumes are becoming a craze in 2010. I think its a good switch from the scary type costumes. I am fan of carrot costumes myself.
