Halloween is today! If you've yet to conjure up a costume, why not get crafty and create this crustacean-themed shrimp nigiri sushi roll look? This getup comes to us courtesy of Erin Poling, who was a finalist in last year's Green Halloween costume contest, and uses just a few recycled ingredients to achieve a truly mouthwatering end result. Read on for DIY instructions on how to create the look yourself!
– White styrofoam packing peanuts
– An old foam mattress pad
– A piece of wide black or dark green ribbon
– Pink and green felt
– Orange spraypaint
First, glue the packing peanuts together to create a “sheet” of rice.
Then cut the foam mattress pad into the shape of a shrimp and spray paint it orange.
Once the foam and “rice” have dried use the wide ribbon to secure them onto your back and front.
Scrunch the colorful pieces of felt up and pin them to your hair as wasabi and ginger.
And voila! Your sushi roll costume is complete!
