Halloween Bento - Green Eyed Wizards



To be honest, I have never celebrated Halloween in my life. Even though I am quite fond of watching thriller and horror films ;), I was never interested to join in the 'fun' of Halloween.

This is the first time that I make Halloween-themed meal, which, I am aware, looks more cute than scary :-). Well, I don't really like the idea of disgusting-looking food. It's interesting to see, but I don't think that I have the guts to eat something that looks like severed fingers or bloody eyeballs ;).

I have seen so many other bento sites with Halloween-themed bentos. Today I finally had the chance to make one as well!

I made two soy-sauce flavoured wizard rice balls. Somehow the wizards look a bit like Powerpuff Girls ;)! I guess, it's because of the humongous eyes! I used cucumber to make the green eyes, nori for the pupil and goat cheese for the shiny, starry-eyed look. The wizard's hat is from nori and cheese.

The three little Jack-o-lanterns are quail eggs which I coloured with orange food colouring. I also made two radish Jack Skellington look-alikes (next time I'll make the eyes bigger!)



Happy Halloween, everyone! I will spend the evening watching a horror film with my husband :-).

  7. You know, they're really not into celebrating Hallowe'en in France at all. No costumes, no make-up, not even any pumpkins on display... bah :( Beautiful bento, but of course - they always are! Even the radish has a little face on it - it's so precious :D By the way, did you make the shrimps yourself (the ones rolled with the crispy batter/noodle stuff?

  16. @ Charles - No, I didn't make the prawns myself, store-bought ;)! Well, they don't actually taste that good, I simply wanted to get some space in my freezer and so had to get rid of the last few pieces of them. They certainly look quite pretty though :).

  17. @ Carolyn Jung - Well, it wasn't exactly a horror movie, it's 'True Blood' ;).
