2. Cup noodles

This ode to a comfort food favourite might not be the easiest one on the list, but it's just so cute! You can use a large bin for the cup and spray paint or print out the label. For the toppings, you can stitch long fabric for the noodles and use styrofoam balls and squares (or sponges) for the carrots and peas.

3. Milk Tea

You can't get any more Asian than this! And best of all, it's one of the cute food costumes you can do with things you already have lying around the house. Just take a beige or old rose dress and stick some circular black papers or styrofoam balls to the hem.
