Halloween is right around the corner and we are so excited! Are you looking for a Halloween costume idea? We are so inspired by Louisiana themed costumes! Here are some costumes from years past for inspiration!
Right in Gramercy, Louisiana Zapps potato chips are cooked and packaged for everyone to enjoy. The thing that makes their taste so unique is that they are kettle-cooked in peanut oil! The best part about using this as an idea for a costume is that there are so many varieties of colors and flavors to choose from. This is a perfect idea for a group!
Famous for being a doughnut without the hole, this popular sweet treat is one of New Orleans most famous food staples that both locals and visitors savor all year long. They are normally paired with a delicious steaming cafe au lait. These costumers had a lot of fun being the powdered sugar dessert.
Cajun Seasonings and Sauces:
Ok, maybe this is our favorite idea (but we are partial!) But just look at the creativity!
There are so many ways to do this idea. If you have a baby or a pet they can be costumed as the crawfish and you can be the chef!
This is possible the cutest gumbo costume we have ever seen.
Are you planning on being something Louisiana themed this Halloween? We would LOVE to see your costumes! Just send us a costume through our Facebook or email so that we can showcase your costume! From all of us at Slap Ya Mama, we hope you have a fun-filled Halloween!
