The pizza rat is now a Halloween costume, because of course it is

‘Tis the season to be figuring out what the heck our Halloween costumes are going to be, and if you’re currently debating whether you’re going to be an adorable animal or a viral internet sensation, the good news is, you don’t have to choose! You can be both! You can be (drumroll please) PIZZA RAT.

For those of you who missed the whole Pizza Rat thing on the internet (You’re forgiven, you blink, and you miss eight bajillion viral vids and memes), a quick recap: Two weeks ago a fifteen-second video of a rat carrying a whole slice of pizza down some subway stairs in NYC took the Internet by storm.

So it should come as a surprise to absolutely no one that some enterprising Halloween costume designer at has created a Pizza Rat costume. And not just any Pizza Rat costume. A “sexy” Pizza Rat costume. Behold.

Now, purists will argue that Pizza Rat was only carrying ONE slice of pizza down the stairs, and that pizza was definitely cheese, so these two pepperoni slice pockets present a major historical inaccuracy. Also, the costume features mouse ears and a mouse tail, and the reason Pizza Rat is called Pizza Rat is because it’s, you know, a rat.

That said, if you’re willing to sign off on these changes (and you’re willing to fork over the $90) then the Sexy Pizza Rat costume can be yours. Or you can make your own Pizza Rat costume (Grey sweats-check, slice of pizza in your hands at all times-check, boom, costume). Or if you’re super up on your rodent-Italian-food Internet vids, you can, of course, make yourself a Spaghetti Rat costume. The possibilities are endless.


Forget about Pizza Rat: We’re in love with Spaghetti Mouse

Here’s a rat carrying a slice of pizza. We kind of get it.
