Halloween Costumes for Work

Categories: Costume Guides

2019 Update: We've updated to include our new Halloween sweaters as a work outfit idea.

There are two kinds of people in this world: Those who LOVE Halloween festivities at work … and those who (gasp) don’t. If you’re in the “pro” column, it’s likely because you dig the camaraderie and change of pace. Or you’re like us: You are a Halloween freak. We love All Hallow’s Eve and celebrate it anywhere we can … ESPECIALLY at work. We’re a costume company, after all – it’s not just welcomed, it’s expected! The other side of the coin isn’t just for buzzkills and party-poopers, though. It’s where stockbrokers, doctors, and other “important types” reside. Frankly, you’re right. We took a poll at HC’s headquarters and only two people said they’d be okay with a clown driving their ambulance. Still, it’s not an open and shut case. Whether you’re an accountant, big-time sales manager, or Kindergarten teacher, we believe that you can infuse a little trick or treat flair into your ensemble on October 31st. Read on to find out the best costume for your job type!

Once a year, teachers get to lower the veil between responsible educator and the dirty little fun-havers that they are in real life (or “IRL” as the kids say). But you’re a teacher, and therefore know how to stick to a budget, so shelling out big bucks for a costume just isn’t going to happen. You want a disguise that’s easy, comfortable, appropriate, unique, AND that won’t dip too much into your “Wine While Grading Papers” fund. Well, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve rounded up the best costumes for teachers, and even separated them by specialty … though, if we’re keeping it real, all teachers collectively specialize in one thing: witty comebacks for, “What? I’m just texting my mom!” Hold on to your seats, blackboard bandits – costume school is now in session....

Embracing her individuality, Ainsley performed tendu fronts and pliés in full hot-off-the-grill regalia! Best of all, her dad proudly proclaimed that the entire thing was her idea. In short: The Hot Dog Princess rules in the kingdom of costumes!

Halloween Costumes for Twins

by |October 10, 2016

If you and your sibling were once womb-mates, it’s highly likely that your mom dressed you to match once and awhile (read: EVERY. SINGLE. SATURDAY. For the weekly trip to Grandma’s house) … even if you aren’t identical … or the same gender. You can’t really blame her; there are few things cuter than matching babies. By now, however, we’re going to guess that you’ve developed your own sense of style (entirely separate from your brother or sister). But when it comes to pulling off an impressive Halloween costume idea, twins have a built-in buddy -- so why not grasp on to your lifelong wingman for the assist? What is bacon without the eggs? Peanut butter without jelly? Maverick without Goose? Face it: You’re better together, and so are all of these twin costume ideas.
