Halloween is over, but we could not let the season pass without recognizing the kid who many are saying won the holiday. The popular vote for best dressed on Halloween 2019 goes to a 2-year-old named Nathan Cummings who was the Popeye’s chicken sandwich. He was committed to the look from start to finish.
The idea of being the famed Popeye’s chicken sandwich for Halloween was all the idea of Nathan’s mom, Nidra Cummings. “My son’s a foodie,” Nidra, who is a travel nurse, says. “He’s a baby but he really enjoys different types of food and he enjoys playing around in the kitchen with me. I use it as our bonding time.”
Using food preparation as a bonding mechanism gave Nidra an idea. How cool would it be to dress her son as the Popeye’s chicken sandwich that sold out within days of its debut? There were reports of customers waiting in line for hours just to purchase the sandwich. Perhaps, Nathan would get the same amount of luck if he dressed as the beloved food choice.
Not only did Nathan receive praise from family and friends for his creative costume, but the masses also took notice of the toddler’s Halloween attire. More than 2,000 social media fans loved what they saw in a picture of Nathan shared by the toddler’s mother.
“He is the most adorable,” one fan said. Another Instagram follower wrote, “Best costume ever,” isn’t it, though?
Nidra Cummings is a bit surprised by her son’s costume going viral. She is not, however, shocked that Nathan’s cuteness stole the Internet. “He has a light that pulls people towards him,” Nidra shares.
Yesterday was National Sandwich Day. Popeye’s re-introduced its chicken sandwich to the masses. Do you see Nathan serving as one of the brand’s promoters in the coming weeks, months, or even years? Maybe so. Stay tuned for more viral kids news!
