Top 5: Lame food-related Halloween costumes
Fortunately, California Raisins are pretty much ancient history so you don't really see any of those garbage bag and sunglasses get-ups come this time of year. Giant, brown garbage bags, hula hoops and other embarrassing accessories and over-the-top garments continue to feature prominently in homemade Halloween costumes resembling food these days though.
That's not to say that simple things around the house can't make some badass food costumes though. Balloons, for example, can make for an awesome bunch of grapes. Even plain old cardboard can be awesome. A friend once made two big Cheerios out of cardboard, for front and back, carried a fake knife and called herself a "Cereal Killer." Not bad for a sixth grader. So it doesn't have to be hard. And at the end of the day, homemade costumes (even California raisin ones) beat out anything else, so don't sweat it.
Here's our Top 5 most humiliating ideas:
1. Anything involving the instruction "Insert [name of company] logo here." Exhibit A: Domino's self-proclaimed "creative, last-minute costume idea that won't break the bank," involving a giant piece of pointed fabric, iron-on sausages and mushrooms and lots of product placement. Poor kid.
