25. Theme: Costume Party

While Halloween is just around the corner, it isn’t the only excuse you’ll need to dress up as someone else! Having a costume party goes along great with themed parties too. In addition to the themes on our list, here are a few other suggestions that you can dress up (or down) for:

    Recycle, Reduce, Reuse: Create a costume out of raw materials like garbage bags, plastic bottles, aluminum foil, etc.

    Superhero: Come dressed as a superhero, or super-villain! If you’re really imaginative, create your own office super-identity like “The Prince of Phones” or “The Food Fiend.” It doesn’t have to be expensive either; you can use towels for capes, although you may want to think twice about wearing your underwear on the outside like Superman.

    Cartoons: Recreate your favorite childhood cartoons as a character. Talk like them, walk like them – go all out!

Generate an incentive for employees to dress up by holding a contest. Create different categories like “Most Creative,” “Funniest,” or “Best Original Idea” and so on.
