The great debate of which is better 鈥 pizza or ice cream 鈥 is one that plagues my particular household. My husband, David, is a firm member of the ice cream camp, while I will wholeheartedly choose pizza anytime, anywhere and at any quality level. After all, even bad pizza is better than most other things. So what鈥檚 a couple to do? Dress up as each other鈥檚 favorite junk food, duh.

For this Halloween costume, we decided to take the whole 鈥測ou are what you eat鈥 expression to another dimension, but with a twist. DIY Designer Kelly Bryden and Beauty Editor Misty Spinney transformed David into a hot slice of 鈥榸a while I became a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Admittedly, our team鈥檚 take on ice cream has a little more in common with Nicki Minaj than Ben and Jerry, but I鈥檓 not complaining ;)

Two pizzas are clearly better than one. In fact, this double slice situation kind of makes me want to quit my job and start a pizza-focused two-person folk band with my husband. You know you鈥檇 see our show.

Tracks would include: Turn Down for 鈥榋a (to the tune of Lil Jon); Can鈥檛 Feel My Slice (inspired by The Weeknd); Back That Pizz Up (an ode to Juvenile); and Get Ur Slice On (a collab with Missy Elliott).
