I know it is a bit early to start talking about October 31st but what a fantastic way to get ideas for costumes! What got me started on this today is the fact that my new job actually allows their employees to dress up for the day. I can't even imagine such a privilege since my old job had no conception of providing such fun to their employees. Apparently, my new employer embraces such fun and frivolity amongst the staff and I must say I find that refreshing!
This year's theme (yes....they even have themes!)..........the Undead.
Now the first thing that popped into my mind when I heard the theme was Thriller. The classic example of a video full of "Undeads". It is a zombie freeforall. A quick trip to the Goodwill/Salvation Army store and I can find a plethora of interesting clothes to cut up into rags to remake my image into the perfect zombie! What fun! I am absolutely giddy with the idea of dressing up for work. I am not sure why that is but maybe it is because I really never had the opportunity in the last 18 years to do so at work.
As soon as Lyn heard of our theme.......she immediately thought I should dress up as John McCain. I think it is suiting since he has one foot in the grave anyway but because I have only been at this position for less than a month..........I don't think it is wise to throw any political jabs at my co-workers just yet. There will be plenty of time for that later when Obama wins and the Democrats take even more control of the House and Senate.
So are any of you afforded the same opportunity at Halloween? If so.....what are your costume plans? It's not too soon to start shopping at your local Halloween costume shop. The makeup and masks go quick folks so you better get shopping!
