The costume of the year...the quarantine baker. Did you even live through 2020 if you didn't bake bread and/or bake in general during quarantine? This costume is easy to accomplish with a fun apron and some essential tools, but bonus points if you do in fact make bread (or anything) just for the pics. Plus, you can carry around yummy treats with you all night wherever you find yourself this Halloween.
