been terrified of an ice cream cone?

Or petrified of a carrot?

Or felt intimidated by a bunch of  broccoli? (In your defense, this one apparently has a red belt in Karate)

Or been rendered silent by an ear of corn?

Or oh, well, ok, who hasn’t been turned on by a banana at some point, but ya gotta admit, this one is particularly …..ummmm…yeah.

These are all real and they all cost close to a thousand bucks. Go figure. They are obviously worth a million.

    Now when you say these cost close to 1000 smackers each, are they Halloween costumes and where are they sold?

    My favorite is that ice cream cone. Such a peculiar shape of the ice cream scoops. And is that supposed to be a cherry on top? And how’s the poor kids supposed to see and breath?

    The carrot is pretty brilliant though I’ve never seen a carrot cut that way. Whoever made these was very serious about stuffing things.

    The broccoli is apparently accompanied by a side of asparagus.

    Curious that the ear of corn and banana are the only ones who actually got a face.

    1000 bucks a pop seems awfully stiff for these so I’m very intrigued as to where they come from. Maybe I should be in that business.

    Believe it or not, these are full sized adult costumes, similar to those worn by school/sports mascots.

    I found them on 2 different websites…my guess is that they aren’t huge sellers, but in a perfect world, they would be, huh? I’m just baffled that they exist! At some point, someone looked at each of them and thought, “yeah, this is done! Perfection!”

    The ice cream cone is my favorite too and I think the scariest…But I’m also pretty in love with that ear of corn and his bizarre few strands of hair…
