Eat your food? Why not be your food? Serious Eats points the way to some amazing, and quite expensive, food mascot costumes. Choose from a buffet of fruits, veggies, and favorites such as waffles and … er … nuts.

Some are very cute (that’s Lenny Lettuce there, in case you couldn’t tell). Some are mildly terrifying. Others do not resemble the food they are meant to, although they might pass for something else. Some employ mustaches. Some may make you the life of the party; others, not so much.

Which one would you choose to be, in your wildest food fantasies? C’mon, somebody out there must be dying to dress up like cauliflower that looks more like a mushroom.
