It was not a total success. Kale powder did not make the sushi quite as bright green as I had hoped. The face on the kale green was not quite as prominent as I had hoped. And Sylvia took one bite and said she didn't like the taste of the kale. (It was slightly grassy but still quite tasty.) I enjoyed a couple as work snacks/lunches, Sylvia had one moulded into a sausage shape and rolled in nori, and I chopped the last one and stirred it into soup. Don't leave the face in the fridge for a couple of days unwrapped or the rice hardens and is only good for stirring into soup.
And if my funny old Franken Sushi is not enough for you, I can direct you to some lists of Halloween food. I am proud that all of these include links to Halloween recipes of mine (yes that is a lot of links). They are quite entertaining slideshows/lists to browse:

By Green Gourmet Giraffe
1 cup sushi rice
1 1/2 cups water
4 tbspt sushi seasoning, or to taste
2 tbsp kale powder
carrots, olives and nori, to decorate
Cook sushi rice by placing in a small saucepan with one and a half times the amount of water. Place a lid on, bring to the boil, stir and simmer (covered) for 20 minutes over a very low flame. When cooked, stir in sushi seasoning and kale powder.
Line a rectangular tub with clingwrap with a large overhang. Spoon about a quarter of rice into clingwrap. Fold clingwrap over it and press down with another similar shaped tub. Place lid on it and put in fridge to chill and firm up.
Just before ready to eat cut out hair, eyes and mouth and place on unwrapped sushi. I cut a thin slice of carrot and carefully chopped out a fringe, used olives and carrot for the eyes and nori for the mouth. However the carrot and olives didn't stay on so many next time I would just use nori for all the face.
