Here, finally, is the time of year in which Halloween costume designers dig into the recent zeitgeist for inspiration. First up is the one, the only pizza rat. Pizza rat's sole claim to fame is that it successfully dragged a large slice of pizza down subway steps despite human intervention, showing that even a humble rat can make it (or lose it) in the Big Apple. Except, this costume is labeled "sexy" because nothing says sex appeal like a large, dirty rat crawling down filthy subway steps with an old slice of pizza in its mouth. Bless you, New York City, and your rats and pizza. And bless Halloween, too.
