Forget about Halloween candy or even other people's attempts at creating an authentic gladiator costume, and nstead get a load of Benjamin Brass' incredible chocolate gladiator bikini. Created for the Aix en Provence's Salon du Chocolat 2011 exhibit, this delicious outfit definitely stole the show.

Constructed by Puyricard, a local artisan chocolate company, designer Benjamin Brass' creation is donned by 51st Miss France in 2005, Cindy Fabre. She does the chocolate costume justice. Made using more than 300 pieces of chocolate, they were arranged on top of an actual bikini to slow down the melting process. Impressively, Fabre most likely had to pose in pretty cold temperatures.

Benjamin Brass' design also included a chunky chocolate bangle and some brown feathers in Fabre's hair.
