Halloween Costume Ideas for the Office


Halloween is on its way. Do you have your costume for the office party yet? Is your office having a party. Side note – if so, check out this blog entry for some fun ideas. OK, back to the subject at hand. What are you going to go as this year?


Here are our costume picks for Halloween 2020 at work

*As always, remember that workplace costumes should be within the parameters set by your employer. If in doubt, ask your supervisor or the organizers of the event. (We don’t want anyone to get in trouble!)

Joe Exotic

No list of Halloween Costume Ideas for the Office would be complete without this one. The hit movie Tiger King featured Joe Exotic the arch enemy of Carole Baskin, fellow tiger enthusiast. The costume must include a blonde mullet wig, a trucker hat, a moustache, and several round clip-on earrings. A plush tiger can be added for the finishing touch.

Carole Baskin

Carole’s look is fairly easy to achieve. You’ll need a flowing floral shirt, a flower headband, feather earrings, a wig, and of course, a plush tiger.

Dwight Schrute

This one will require a trip to a thrift store. You’ll need a yellow shirt and corresponding tie. Also a pair of 1980s eye glasses. Craft your own Dunder Mifflin badge, grab a bouquet of beets from the grocery store and you’re good to go.
