Work-Appropriate Halloween Costume Ideas For Office
Edward Scissorhands: Speaking of Halloween, how can we start our blog with any other costume idea, when we have a Tim Burton character pictured in our minds? Yes, you have guessed it correctly. Edward Scissorhands – the peculiar man with scissors for his hands who just wants to be loved. Goosebumps!
It does not matter if you are an intern or the CEO of the company if you dress up Edward Scissorhands while going to the office, you are sure to get brownie points for it. The best part? If you provide job application writing help services, how can anyone in your office expect you to write or type with scissors for your hands? Spoiler Alert – They Cannot!
Ken: Barbie has always been a sensation for everyone, but ever since the release of Greta Gerwig’s Barbie, the craze has reached an absolute fever pitch and continues to take over the box office as well as the whole world!
If you want to make a fascinating impression on your office mates, then there is no better costume option for you than dressing up as Ken. Use the character’s confidence boost as you sway around your office, reminding yourself that you are “Kenough”. You might just be Ken, so channel the perfect ‘Kenergy’ and take over your office just as Barbie is taking over the world! How exciting!
Sally (The Pumpkin Queen): We cannot celebrate Halloween without giving some tribute to Tim Burton, can we? This is why, here is another of his character-inspired outfit idea that is perfectly appropriate for work. Chin-chin!
Dress up as Sally Skellington from ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ this Halloween and act like the Queen your workplace needs! If you are okay with body paint and tons of makeup, then this look might be your best bet. Just get a patched dress and siphon your inner Queen to get the perfect Halloween spirit.
Pennywise: Depending on your budget and desire to ‘bowl over’ your colleagues, we are pretty sure this Halloween costume idea takes the cake (or children, I guess). Shudder!
If you are someone who loves to see people creeped out then dressing up as Pennywise from the movie “IT” might be your chalk horse. Besides who does not get terrified by the sight of clowns? However, this character takes one step further from clowns by manifesting and preying on children’s deepest fears. What an absolute sadist! Just like your manager.
Fred Flintstone: This costume idea is for light-hearted people. If you don’t like to give people jump scares each time they see you, then dressing up as Fred Flintstone from “The Flintstones” is your best bet. Yabba Dabba Doo and for a dramatic flair arrive at your work a bit late. Who is going to blame you when your car is required to be pushed by feet instead of wheels? News Flash – Absolutely No One!
Wednesday Addams: How can we leave behind our favourite character to dress up as this spook-tacular eve? Yes, you have figured it correctly, we are talking about none other than the famous Wednesday Adams! To dress up as this character, you only have to do 4 things. What things? For your ease, we have mentioned them below:
- Not hug anyone.
- Do not show any kind of emotion (instead of frustration, maybe?).
- Tie your hair in pigtails.
- Mention exactly 0 positive things.
Hold on a minute, don’t you already act like her in your workplace? Ouch! Bonus point – If you provide online CV writing services UK then you can always use an extra hand (Thing, in your case) to do some work, right?
Chucky: Dress up as the infamous doll-come-alive “Chucky” and give your co-workers a good reason to fear you. Just wear a blue jumpsuit, add some freckles and practice your horrifying Chucky smile and you are all set to win the most-scary person award at the end of this day! Oh and don’t forget to carry a knife prop with you to frighten off your boss each time he looks up to give you more work.
