Every year I spend the days leading up to the weekend before Halloween adding more costume ideas to my Pinterest account. A few years ago, I made an award winning mail order bride costume, I spent a few hours constructing a dress out of Priority Mail envelopes. I have learned that I love the process of making the Halloween costume more than I even like wearing the costume.
I spent hours looking for the perfect Pittsburgh costume to craft for this year and came up with nothing. I was debating making a Stanley Cup costume out of duct tape, but after reviewing the tutorials from the duct tape artists who make their prom dresses out of duct tape, I decided it was a project that could take years. I was a little disappointed that the internet didn’t offer up an other Pittsburgh costume ideas. If you are unable to see the video, click here to view this on Instagram.
Best Pittsburgh Halloween Costume
But then I saw this costume posted on Instagram. Maggie has created what might be the most delightful Pittsburgh Halloween costume based off of the famous, well Pittsburgh famous, Eat N’Park holiday commercial.

Anyone who grew up in Pittsburgh in the 80’s will recognize this costume. For those of you who have not yet had the joy of watching this holiday ad, here is the commercial:
