Halloween Picnic Bento

My family just came back from a week long vacation at Disneyland, so I’m still dealing with vacation blues while I try to get into the Halloween bento swing. My aunties paying a visit from Hilo while on their trip to Honolulu helped give me motivation to make a Halloween bento and this is what I came up with. To cut the nori eyes, use a small single hole puncher. You can also use the scissors I have, a micro-tip scissors, which is amazing for cutting tiny details!

Ghost Musubis

First layer of the bento was made up of ghost musubis, which I shaped using saran wrap and then added nori cutouts. I could have made them cuter but I ran out of time.

Hot Dog Fingers

This is the stuff I’m really proud of: hot dog fingers. LOL! Aren’t they utterly disgusting? I cooked them in shoyu sauce and used a teardrop cutter to make the nails. I’ll post a tutorial tomorrow about it. They rest on a bed of yakisoba noodles.

      Favorite game?

      • AikoVenus

        Haha, I didn’t even see your reply. ^^; My favorite game is/was “Haunt The House”, the ghost looks similar but has a cute blue collar and blush.

    Yes, deliciously disgusting! You did a great job on them. I’ll have to think up a way to freak out my middle schoolers with these–they will love it!!

    The ghosts are so cute! Maybe I’ll give them a try, though I’m sure it won’t look as cute as yours.

    • Pikko

      It’s not too hard if you have a good punch! I also just cut out the bigger mouths.
