We were invited to a Halloween party with our long time Italian friends. I was at a loss as to what we could be. So, of course, I did what everyone else does, I went to Pinterest. I found a boy dressed as a pizza guy. That was my inspiration - My husband would be a pizza maker and I would be the old Italian mama. Now my husband is pure Italian, from Sicily, so this was perfect. We were a hit at the party!
Husbands mustache and his slices of pizza were all made with my Explore in an hour. The Pizza insignia was from the internet. I put the pizza on a string as we didn't want to hold our props the entire time. His apron was decorated with Italian sayings - it came wrapped around a salami years ago. I got his chef hat from the Dollar store and glued on a Sicily patch. My costume had some details that probably only Italians would understand - an apron with a wooden spoon and cannoli makers, a cross on a black necklace, glasses, an old hankerchief (normally kept inside the bra), a slight black mustache, a scarf wrapped tightly over the head, a housecoat, loafers with knee high stockings at the ankles. We had Sicily maps on dish towels tucked in our pockets. I really loved it and glad I had a slight stroke of genius!
