We dress up a lot at my job. It’s a fun hobby the employees all enjoy and most people get VERY into it. In most cases, we have a theme given to us and are expected to be creative in choosing our attire.
The way to always assure creativity: choose a sub-theme that you can keep for all of the themes given to you. My sub-theme is death (or at least something scary). I really enjoy getting crazy reactions at the themed parties because of it. When you’re a little, smiley cheerleader during the day, it makes being a nightmare after work SO much more fun.
Here are some examples of how to turn a generic theme into something creative… starting with my very first & ending with my latest!
Theme: Under The Sea
Costume: Angler Fish
Theme: ABC’s (My letter was “O”)
Costume: Sad Clown
Theme: Board Games
Costume: Ouija Board
Theme: Greek Night
Costume: Dead Lambs to be prepared for gyros 😋
Theme: At the Zoo
Costume: Zoo Visitor Attacked by a Bear
Theme: Halloween (not really a theme but still fun)
Costume: Broken Dolls
Theme: Also Halloween but for Couples
Costume: Joker & Harley Quinn
Costume: Hunted Deer
Costume: Zombie Barbie
I think the Zombie Barbie is my personal favorite/best. All looks (and friends’ looks) are done by me with Red/Black Lipstick, Black/White Eyeliner, and Black Eyeshadow. Also rolling your eyes makes a great visual for dead things.
