Tis the season for costume parties. Even people not celebrating Halloween like to have costume parties at this time of the year, and if you’re office or school is having a party – you certainly don’t want to feel left out simply because you refuse to wear something evil or scary. Got some great family-friendly costume ideas for school or the office? Call in with your ideas! Here are a few ideas to get you started!
- A Day Off – Assuming the party is on October 31st, use black lettering, write “October 30th” or “November 1st” on a blank shirt. When people ask what you are, say, “A day off!”
- Running Late — Show up to the office with messy hair and disheveled clothes with your pajamas showing underneath.
- Office Gossip — Make up fun stories about your co-workers. Fasten the stories to yourself and put the name of your favorite grocery store tabloid on a hat. Hang around the water cooler and invite people to read the latest news.
- Pink Slip — No one ever wants to be served the dreaded pink slip at work. Wear a pink slip over your work clothes and chase your co-workers.
- Post-it Note — Wear all yellow. If you’re doing a “trick or treat” kind of thing, pass out real Post-it notes.
- Red Tape — Buy red tape and tape it all over your clothes and your cubicle or desk. When people ask what you are, make them cut through some red tape to get the answer.
- Leftover — Wrap yourself in aluminum foil and give yourself an aluminum swan hat. Place a sign on your chest that says, “Anything left after 4pm on Friday will be thrown away!“
- Vending Machine — Dress in black and fasten snacks to yourself with the cost of each item displayed. If you want be really mean, place an “out of order” sign on the real vending machine and have it instruct your co-workers to come to you for their snacks – and make them pay. When they pay, make sure you throw their snacks on the ground as the vending machine does.
