Looking for a fun, simple,
easy-to-assemble costume for this Halloween— that's also a hilarious
pun? The clever creative team at BuyCostumes! came up with a great
idea for a Pizza Rat costume. It's a total hat tip to the Pizza Rat
video that's gone crazy viral (if you haven't seen it, just search
"pizza rat" and it'll come right up).
You can take this costume to any level you like. All you really need
to make your own Pizza Rat costume are a gray hoodie and pants, a
mouse nose and ears, and piece of pizza. You can also draw a quick
rat nose and whiskers onto your face with a black makeup pencil if
you'd prefer that route. And a rat tail can be DIY'ed with something
as simple as a shoelace or length of clothesline tucked into the
back of your belt.
As for the pizza, it can be real or fake; it doesn't matter. Of
course, carrying around a real piece of pizza might get kinda gross
after a while ... just a thought. You can also create your own giant
piece of pizza with foam board from the craft store or ordinary
corrugated cardboard. Just cut out a vague triangular shape, and use
some markers to draw toppings. It doesn't have to be perfect ? this
is a last-minute costume idea, remember?
