This is the only costume I have ever made where we ate the excess material. We made pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie filling, pumpkin bread, and spicy toaste...
Pure pumpkin Halloween costume
Step 1: Make the costume
To make this costume I purchased two pumpkins. One slightly lager than my head and another larger than my waist. For the hat: I cut out a hole the size of my head, cleaned out the stringy bits and seeds and wore it. For the "pants" I cut a hole through one side of the pumpkin and out the other, removed the gunk and put it on.
