Last-Minute Halloween Costume Ideas for Procrastinating Marketers
October 1, 2015 | Dan Trefethen
It’s October 1st, which can mean only one thing: Halloween is coming up fast. Do you have your costume planned out?
I’m historically really bad at Halloween. I love the holiday, I love dressing up, I’m reasonably creative… but every year I wait until the last possible second and end up with something only-sort-of a costume (like when I went as “an emo” by wearing two flannels at once and putting on a surly expression).
Not this year! This year I’ll do something creative, something impressive, something unexpected. Maybe I’ll make good on that Superbowl-adrenaline-fueled vow to go as Katy Perry’s left shark.
Or maybe this year will be exactly like every other year, and I’ll wait until the last possible second and pull something out of the air.
The Last Minute Office Costume
Part of the trouble I have with planning Halloween costumes is there always seems to be a disconnect between the costume I wear at work and the one I wear to my friend’s Halloween house party. On the off-chance I have something crazy and elaborate planned for “real Halloween,” I might not want to go to all that effort for the office. Or it’s just impractical (or embarrassing — or in some offices, unprofessional) to be in full zombie in the workplace.
What to do? Well, you’re in luck – this year, the SnapApp team put our heads together to come up with some easy, DIY, office-appropriate costumes and (true to form) have built an assessment to help you find the perfect costume for you. Ready to give it a try?
