About a month ago, we were out having dinner and asking ourselves, “What could be the strangest, most random, dorky costume we can possibly make for Halloween?” A bunch of crazy ideas were tossed around, but then it really came down to having two requirements: one, it had to be recognizable right away, and two, it had to never have been done before.
Maybe it was the bad Thai food we were eating, but we started thinking about food costumes. Mostly iconic foods, such as hamburgers, ice cream, and dim sum. Then it went towards the direction of street food – tacos, samosas, and pork buns. And then I thought – I could be a FALAFEL SANDWICH! The idea was born, and a few weeks later, Mike put together the most spectacular falafel sandwich costume I’ve ever seen.
Here’s a sketch of how I would look as a happy falafel sandwich. We figured that three falafel balls would be ideal, and that one of the falafel balls had to
be my head.

The only person who got it right was my friend Shawna.
She has no idea why she guessed Falafel.
