How to Win a Workplace Adult Costume Contest
The air carries a slight winter chill, lawns are adorn with bloody body parts, and Halloween is only right around the corner, which means workplace adult costume contests are bound to occur. Some individuals find the workplace costume contest to be a stressful, anxiety-ridden event, where you never know what you should or should not dress ass, but take a deep breath, relax, and read on:
As Halloween professionals, we have loads of information to help ensure that you don’t get up in front of your coworkers, the people you see some 40 hours per week, and make a complete fool of yourself, possibly losing that promotion you’ve been craving for years. But enough talking, let’s get on with the good stuff.
- Before you even think about your adult costume, find out the details for the contest. What are the judges looking for? What are the categories? Will the audience help determine the winners?
- Plan a budget. Don’t go overboard and buy the most expensive costume, because the cost of a costume does not guarantee you a win in the contest.
- Find out where the contest will be held. If the contest is held outside of the workplace, like at a bar or a party venue, your costume can be more outrageous and sexy.
- Know your strengths. If you want to flaunt your beauty, get a costume that works toward that angle. Of course, if you’re good with tools, building your own costume can give it true personality.
- Brainstorm. Do you want a themed costume, such as a superhero or television character? Do you want an abstract or gory costume? Once you have the theme decided, continue to narrow down the search.
- An appropriate workplace costume is truly what you want, because the last thing you want to do is offend a boss. Think about your workplace environment, the people you work with, then choose something that would fit in with the atmosphere.
- If the audience has a say in who wins the contest, use this to your advantage. Get the crowd hyped up, talk to them, encourage them to cheer you on.
- Get into character and stay there. Be original, creative, humorous, or whatever else you have to do to attract positive attention. You want the judges and the audience to pay attention to you.
- Put on a show, be confident, and have fun. A workplace costume contest is a great way to hang out with friends and impress bosses. If you look like you’re having a great time, people will notice.
