The 24-year-old, who wished to remain anonymous, told BuzzFeed News she simply wanted to "have a bit of fun" this Halloween.

"I don't know what inspired it," she said. "The idea just came to me out of nowhere," she said.

"The General Manager of the kindergarten I teach at buys me coffee from Starbucks a lot," she said. "So I thought I'd make everyone happy."

The woman from Hsinchu, Taiwan, also said she frequently drinks coffee from Starbucks, adding that her go-to order is a latte with an extra shot.

Unfortunately, the costume didn't go down too well with her class. Her three and four-year-old students were so scared of her costume they started crying.

"No one recognized me," she said.

"One of the parents had to explain to their child that the costume was the cup of coffee that their dad has every morning," she said.

Naturally, she also decided to go to her local Starbucks to take some photos.
