Halloween Costumes, Office-Style

Illustration: Graham Roumieu

1. Earn respect with an authentic costume. Superhero-style duds need superhero-style tights.
2. Flatter your boss and show her your humorous side by dressing up in her likeness.
3. Halloween parties are the perfect opportunity to show off your sexy side. Don’t be shy.
4. For a last-minute outfit, a store-bought kids’ costume will usually do the trick.
5. Create a concept costume that nobody understands—it will make you look sophisticated.
6. If you’re not into costumes, shirk responsibilities all day and tell people you’re going as a “slacker.”
