Sure, it's creative, but how is he going to sit down?
Psst -- it's Halloween this weekend. Well, actually Halloween is next week, but all the hot parties will be happening this weekend. It's time to get that costume pulled together. Skip the "sexy SpongeBob" suits and try some of these food-centric, do-it-yourself Halloween costumes.
So, so, so awesomely wrong
10. Baby Don Draper
This lands at No. 10 because, admittedly, it's just barely food related. But it's baby Don Draper! Parenting genius. Baby suit clothes can be bought anywhere kids clothes are sold. Then just add a thrift store Barbie in a red dress and a bottle of booze containing something brown and not booze -- because that would be just irresponsible.
C'mere, baby, knock me a kiss
9. Chocolate Kiss
This one requires a lot of tinfoil. The exact directions can be found here, but basically, make a little cone, cover with foil. Get a poncho. Cover with foil. It's both a costume and a device to keep the aliens from hearing your thoughts.
You little devil, you
8. Deviled Egg
All you need is a couple pieces of poster board, one white and one yellow. Cut into egg shape and strap it on. Add a pitchfork and horns and you're a spicy little dish.
Classy in every way
6. Box of Franzia
You'll be the delight of every suburban lady party! Just get a giant box of pink wine, drink it, have someone sober cut out some holes, and voila!
6. Taco Bell Burrito
Perfect for college students on a budget. Collect those late-night munchie wrappers, lick off the errant hot sauce, and you've got a costume. (Or do what this girl did and befriend a Taco Bell employee).
5. Bag of Cotton Candy
So you've put on a couple of pounds -- no one will notice if you cover yourself with giant, fluffy balls of ... oh, wait. Yeah, that's actually worse -- but your hair looks so pretty!
4. Spaghetti and Meatballs
We're having a hard time believing people went out like this. This picture has a whiff of, "We'll embarrass our kids at any cost." Awkward family photo gold and a lifetime of humiliation can be yours with a few strands of string and a complete lack of shame.
3. Morton Salt Girl
All you really need is a yellow raincoat or dress and an umbrella. It's adorable, with the bonus of being totally comfortable. And if need be, the umbrella doubles as a bashing weapon.
This costume is off the CHAIN
2. Guy Fieri
This guy is ripe for parody -- check out the Saturday Night Live version above. Spray your dome the color of fresh pineapple, don a bowling shirt and way too much gold jewelry.
Mayor McCheese does not approve
1. Fast Food Icons
Which is more terrifying? Jack in the Box with his dead eyes, the Burger King guy (who frankly is barely trying), or the clown who clearly wants to eat your face?
