Halloween is just around the corner and it's time to start thinking seriously about what or who you want to be. Are you a food lover, but don’t want to dress up as food? Are you obsessed with Food Network stars or Michelin-approved chefs? Then these masks are for you!
Halloween is all about leaving yourself behind and assuming another persona for the day. Some turn to ghoulish goblins and fiendish freaks, but not us.
It’s a tradition around these parts to make masks of our favorite food celebrities (which tend to take on a hauntingly disturbing air thanks to the lack of eyes), and icons like Mario Batali, Emeril, and Anthony Bourdain have been burned into our brains as some of the scariest Halloween costumes to date.
This year we bring you a nice blend of notable restaurateurs and bigwig food celebrities, ranging from master chef Nobu Matsuhisa to the beautiful Giada De Laurentiis (NOTE: hollowing out her eyes is chilling) for an array of food-world favorites.
Try one on! Just click on the link in any of the 38 slides in our slideshow for a full face-sized mask you can print out. Cut along the dotted line, cut out the vacant white eyes, tape a string to either side of the back, or mount it to a wooden kitchen spoon to hold it in front of your face. Whatever you do, just make sure you’re ready to freak your friends and family out with these scary food celebrity masks!
