These Food-Inspired Halloween Costume Ideas Will Whet Your Creative Appetite
You love food, and you love Halloween. How can you satisfy both of your passions at once? No, not with fists full of bite-size candy bars you will sneak from that big bowl you've set by the door for trick-or-treaters. Or at least, that's not the only way. You can also let your food-nerd flag fly proudly by dressing up — or dressing your kid up — in a food-themed Halloween costume (pictured above).
While you can certainly buy food-related costumes ( cute ones, funny ones), any cook worth his or her salt knows that homemade is best. And if you're hungry for ideas (no, really, stop with the chocolate bars), the Internet is filled with ideas — floating around like apples in a bowl, ripe for bobbing.
These egg and bacon costumes will let your kids show off their sunny-side-up attitudes, not to mention their love of cured meats. Food Network Magazine offers step-by-step instructions on these and other appetite-stirring creations.
You could continue with the breakfast theme and, with the help of a simple blow-up pool inner tube and some paint or colorful straws, turn your kid into a doughnut — with colorful sprinkles!
Hop on the hot-sauce trend and go as a bottle of Sriracha.
There are as many costumes ideas as there are foods. Why not get creative? Share your ideas.
