Picking the perfect Halloween costume is like picking the perfect avocado — it ain't easy. Sure, you could rifle through your rolodex of pop culture characters and spend endless hours attempting to put together something that strikes the understated, yet still sparkly, balance between witty and sexy. OR, you could just dress up as a hotdog and call it a day.
We're starting a campaign this year for a food-themed costume takeover. Not only are the options endless, but edible-inspired outfits are incredibly easy to DIY and make group-friendly. Love cotton candy? There's a costume for that. How about pickles? Yep, a costume for that one, too. Now's the time to gather your Halloween group and just be a bunch of bananas.
