Ultimate Halloween Costumes for Foodies

October 16, 2018

If you’re in dire need of a new Halloween costume but old classics like black cat and vampire aren’t cutting it, find inspiration in an unlikely place – your plate! “You are what you eat” takes on a whole new meaning this Halloween. Take a page from your favorite restaurant’s menu and dress up as your favorite foods.

Pez Dispenser

Dress up as your favorite childhood candy-toy hybrid this Halloween. Cut some holes in a long box with “PEZ” painted down the side, and put on your favorite giant character head for the perfect Pez Dispenser costume. Bonus points if you hand out actual Pez candies all night.


Sushi is not only delicious, but it is also a super simple DIY costume. Dress in all white, and use a dark “seaweed” wrap to strap on a piece of “fish” made from a salmon-decorated pillow.


Some may call it “lazy,” but we think a Sriracha costume with only two pieces is smart, comfy, and cost-effective. Put on a red Sriracha t-shirt and a green “cap,” and you’re everybody’s favorite spicy condiment.

Ice Cream Cone

Still wish it was summer? Dress up as your favorite hot weather treat with patterned brown pants and a shirt decorated as your go-to ice cream flavor. Add toppings (aka accessories) like some “sprinkles” and a cherry hat on top.


Brunch is not only the best meal of the day, it’s also the best group costume idea! Get a bunch of friends together to dress as your weekend breakfast staples – bacon, eggs, waffles, and mimosas. To get the full brunch experience, meticulously pose for Instagram selfies all evening.

La Croix

If your crew isn’t the brunch type, tie-dye some t-shirts or dresses the colors of your favorite La Croix flavor for an fun at-home costume project.


Fruits don’t get much trendier than pineapples. Put together a leafy hat and a yellow patterned shirt or dress for this Instagram-worthy DIY fruit costume.

Cotton Candy

This Halloween, you can -be- the candy while you’re eating candy! Kid-approved cotton candy makes for an easy homemade costume with a pink tutu, pink fluff covering the rest, and a paper cone hat.

Want to look like a snack but not dress like a snack? Try out these foodie-inspired costumes.

Snap, Crackle, and Pop

Grab two friends and dress up like the three amigos of the cereal world. You’ll need red, white, and blue shirts and the respective hats. Don’t forget to write your name on your cap!

Salt Bae

This costume is all about the attitude! Embody your favorite culinary meme with your tightest white V-neck and tiny wire-rim sunglasses. Channel Salt Bae’s sass with a slicked-back ponytail, goatee, and plenty of salt to toss theatrically.

Swedish Chef

Is there a better costume than The Muppets’ resident culinary artist? Kudos if you can pair the perfect bushy eyebrows and mustache with the iconic accent. *chef’s kiss*
