4 Office-Appropriate Group Costume Ideas for Halloween

Halloween is one of the few holidays throughout the year where you can shrug off the seriousness of life and have fun for a day. Despite falling on a weekday, you can still have fun this year by dressing up with your coworkers and turning it into a themed holiday. With a little planning, time, and a small investment, you and your fellow office workers can make the most of working on Halloween and turn it into something fun while also getting work done.

Let’s take a look at four great ideas that you and your coworkers can use as the basis for your costumes.

  1. Disney, Disney, Disney!

Disney has tons of different characters to choose from, so there will be no lack of choices. The main idea would be to dress up as different characters from different Disney movies. If you are feeling more creative, your group can choose an ensemble from one specific Disney movie and dress up as characters from that movie.


  1. Pick a Decade

This one can be really fun if you are willing to put the time and planning into it. You can separate the office into groups who all have to dress up in iconic fashion from that specific decade. Another idea would be to do the same groups, but choose iconic movies or shows from that decade and dress up as the characters.


  1. Horror Characters

This follows the same pattern as the rest, but everyone dresses up as the same character. For example, everyone shows up to the office dressed as Freddy Krueger. You can even make a competition out of it and someone can win an award for the best rendition.


  1. Living Art

This one could be really interesting because it leaves a lot of room for getting creative. The idea would be to pick out different works of art and dressing up as the subjects of that art to make the pieces come alive. You can choose one piece if the group is small enough, or a bunch of different works of art.

Picking out a costume for your group is probably the hardest part of the whole process, but once all is said and done, you and your coworkers will have a lot of fun working together. You may actually be glad Halloween is on a weekday this year.


A Year In Review


It’s no shock that people are the most important resource in the workplace. As we look back on a great year at Caltronics, we have to admit: we couldn’t have experienced this level of success without our amazing staff.

At Caltronics, our employees make the difference because we only hire the most tenured sales and support staff in California. We know that in a highly competitive arena, there are few things that can separate you from your adversaries. We’re happy to say we have not only the friendliest staff you can imagine, but a staff that continues to produce an impressive quality of work that excite our clients and keeps our retention numbers soaring.

For seven years running, we have been awarded “Top 50 Dealers” in the United States for customer service and support by OfficeDealer Magazine. In addition, we have been the # 1 Western Region Konica dealer for 21 years!

It is with full hearts (and bellies!) that we say THANK YOU to our amazing staff for all that you do! We look forward to an even better year in 2015 and are grateful you have chosen to work for Caltronics Business Services.

A special thanks to Zinfandel Grille on Fair Oaks for hosting our Staff Christmas party! We had a great time!
