Let us take a few minutes to pause and reflect, because a momentous anniversary has arrived: Five years ago this month, Snooki donned the costume we all hoped and dreamed she would.
Tasked with judging a costume contest on October 30, 2010 at the Mirage in Las Vegas, the "Jersey Shore" star emerged on the red carpet sporting a pickle-slice sequined dress and a floor-length verdant cape while brandishing a pickle-topped scepter. The result: a green goddess straight from the local grocery store.
Why did Nicole Polizzi dress up as the Queen of Vlasic, you ask? As any devoted fan recalls, Snooki had a daily habit of snacking on pickles. She ate them so much, in fact, that the ever-immature “Shore” guys such as Pauly D and Vinny couldn’t help but pick on her for it -- as seen in the clip below.
“What are you laughing at?” she asked innocently.
Hey, we’re not laughing over here! We think the pickled cucumber is a fantastic invention -- fantastic enough to use as inspiration for a Halloween costume.
Tell us: What did you think of Snooki's pickle costume? And which of your favorite foods would make the perfect Halloween costume? Let us know in the comments, and watch the clip for Snooki's classic pickle munch.
