I cannot think of a worse Halloween costume than dressing up entirely in different cuts of meat. If the prospect of spreading salmonella, e. coli and other diseases around you isn’t enough, try fending off all the small critters. Wait a second…this isn’t a costume? Someone actually wore this for real? And to top it off, a group of butchers has actually warned the public about trying to duplicate it this Halloween? OK, so maybe pass on the GaGa-influenced meat outfits. But in that spirit, here are 10 more foodie Halloween costumes we hope no one will duplicate this year.
10. Bacon Tuxedo
“We’ll force a half-smile as long as your promise not to show these to anyone, Mom.”
9. Sandwich Girl
“I said I wanted to be a princess, a ballerina or a witch but a sandwich? Seriously Mom, WTF?
8. Vanilla Bean
Who doesn’t want to pay $109 to look like a decayed banana?
7. Cheesy Couple
Be extremely careful when standing near any heat sources. Nobody wants to explain third degree burns caused by pasteurized cheese product and plastic wrapping.
6. Waffle Man
There are dozens of costumes out there featuring this guy, but the bad graphics, poorly cut photo and unappealing butter/syrup combo helped this costume make the list.
5. Broccoli Roberta
Many kids are scared of broccoli, but now many adults will be too.
No matter how many times you explain that you’re dressed like a mushroom, expect people to call you Richard all night.
3. Taco Bell Hot Sauces
Pretty original, but a little odd that they probably spent a few hours writing the ingredient lists across their crotches.
2. Ronald McDonald 2.0
How do you cure childhood obesity? Put a McD’s employee dressed like this under all the Golden Arches to welcome customers.
And the Winner is………………
1. Giant Scary Hot Dog!
There are dozens of hot dog costumes floating around, but this is by far the creepiest wiener ever. His eyes see into my soul.
