13 Amazing and Fun Food Costume Ideas for The Whole Family

As we are always on the hunt for new trends, we couldn't help but fall in love with the trend of food costumes! From fast food, to beverages, to desserts, food costumes are adorable, versatile, easy to create and sure to be super popular at any upcoming party or event! Did you know that celebrities love this trend too? Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his family donned fruit costumes, Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady went as avocado toast together and Mariah Carey dressed as Famous Amos cookies! Whether you want to be a couple's costume like eggs and bacon or a group costume like a fruit salad, food costumes are sure to make everyone smile (and their mouths water!) this Halloween season.

How unbelievable is this pizza dress that cosplayer @avantgeek made herself? Named the "Pizza Prom Dress" and on display at Domino's headquarters, this dress is a perfect example of how one can wear a food costume while still donning an elegant silhouette!  

2. Katy Perry's Hamburger Costume

The media couldn't stop talking about Katy Perry's 2019 Met Gala after party dress, which was actually from her cameo in Taylor Swift's "You Need To Calm Down" music video, and neither can we! Not only was the hamburger costume bedazzled to suit the theme of "Camp: Notes on Fashion" even more, but Perry's bedazzled hamburger slip-ons were the perfect added touch. 

3. Sushi Couple's Costume

Want to make use of extra items lying around? We're so obsessed with these sisters' cupcake costumes, created with pool-noodles! Created by Michelle at, she explains in great detail to any and all interested in the process. Simple, inexpensive, and a creative way to use household items. We know her daughters pictured above are just as obsessed as we are with this creative idea!

Mmmm! Who doesn't love a good plate of spaghetti and meatballs? We love the creativity that @carolinekaufman put into her Halloween costume, especially her use of fabric to create the long spaghetti strands draped over her body and the pompoms for meatballs. Add a comically large fork for that extra touch and amaze everyone who encounter!

7. Dunkin Donuts Coffee

Can't live without your coffee? Well now you can dress like this! We love this Dunkin Donuts inspired costume, featuring a straw helmet with a donut and even plastic ice cubes stuck to her dress! You can customize this costume as you like, changing the flavor by changing the color of your dress. Delicious!

Nothing says twinning like a pair of Smores!

We absolutely love the little fire detail at the bottom, adding a touch of creativity to an already creative costume idea. 

9. Popcorn

One of our favourite food costumes to date is this burlesque-style popcorn lady! This was submitted by a fan during her attendance at Montreal Comiccon, and we couldn't be more in love with the creative approach to a popcorn costume. We love the intersection of the old circus aesthetic with the pastel color palette, as well as the burlesque style corsetry and details. Get inspired by a type of food and use that as a jumping point for your own gorgeous and creative costume, like this!

10. Starbucks Duo

Frappucino Starbucks DYI Kids Costume


Who doesn't love a good frappucino? If you're looking for a perfect two person costume, this Starbucks beverage and employee is a great pairing. Easy to make and comfortable to sport during a night of trick-or-treating, we're sure anyone you come across will notice just how sweet this costume is! Want to add another friend? Suggest they go as a delicious cake pop, or an iced coffee, and bring Starbucks to anywhere you go. 

11. Salad

Homemade Child Salad Costume


Want a healthier alternative than those listed above? Try a salad costume! This one is easy to make, as all you need is different shades of green tissue papers for the lettuce and any other ingredient cut out of felt or construction paper. Delicious!

12. Sushi 

Homemade Sushi Costume


Did you know sushi is said to date back all the way between the 5th and 3rd centuries BC, as a way to preserve fish in salt? Nowadays, we know it is a delicious and nutritious fresh meal with a plethora of different flavours and ingredients. Go as your favourite roll and customize the costume as you please, with the only thing you need being a pillow strapped to your back and headband, like the picture above!

13. French Fries

Homemade French Fry Costume


You can't have a hamburger without fries, right? Combine this salty snack with a friend or partner and have them don a hamburger or pizza costume for a delicious fast food themed pairing! Pull inspiration from Katy Perry and Taylor Swift in Swift's "You Need To Calm Down" music video, where they are dressed as a happy meal together!
