I believe that you could pull off an edible pizza bikini on your own for under $10 with at least four slices and, I dunno, some string—or you could pay Villa Italian Kitchen to make you a more elaborate version for $10,000. I know which choice I would make—and the answer is “none of the above”.
From the press release:
Swimsuit season is finally here, meaning it’s time to hit the beaches, pools and lakes to have some serious fun in the sun. For many, it is also a time to get your style on and stand out with a look that is uniquely your own. To celebrate two of humanity’s greatest creations, Villa Italian Kitchen, one of America’s favorite quick-service pizza brands, today announced the launch of the Pizza-Kini, the world’s most mouthwatering bikini, made entirely of pizza! For one day only, on July 5’s National Bikini Day, pizza fanatics nationwide can order the limited-edition Pizza-Kini for their very own, retailing for an oven-hot price of $10,000.
To make the Pizza-Kini a reality, Villa Italian Kitchen enlisted New York City food stylist, Jessie Bearden, to hand craft each meat-iculously made suit, masterfully capturing the essence of both pizza and the bikini. Like all of Villa Italian Kitchen’s Neapolitan and Pan pizzas, the Pizza-Kini is made from the freshest ingredients, including homemade dough, hand-braided throughout the top and waistband, 100 percent whole milk mozzarella cheese, sauce made from fresh California tomatoes and topped with delicious pepperoni. Each of Villa Italian Kitchen’s Pizza-Kini’s are fully customizable, from choice of toppings like pepperoni, sausage, peppers and onions and more, to its personalized fitting to the body type of each customer. The cost of the Pizza-Kini includes an initial consultation and measurement session, creation of the customized suit – including topping preferences – and final fitting.
Interested parties can send a direct message through Villa Italian Kitchen’s Facebook page to get the ball rolling. Granted, they’re in this for the viral marketing value, and I don’t think that they expect anyone to be crazy enough to actually order one—but we do live in a world where people pay thousands of dollars for Cheetos that look like things. On the plus side, I suspect that the animals on the beach will swiftly dole out Darwin’s justice to anyone who actually goes through with this.
