Here at Liftable Media, we take advantage of every opportunity to celebrate and have fun with our co-workers. So for Halloween every year, everyone comes to work in their costumes and we have a costume contest with prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place!
This year we had a great mix of funny, creative, and impressive costumes. A handful of employees were dressed as celebrities including Bob Ross, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. Others were dressed as animals including a group of cats, a terrifying big bad werewolf, a dragon, unicorn, and giraffe. Any reason to wear a onesie to work! There was also a couple dressed as the iconic duo Mario and Luigi, a few people dressed as their fellow co-workers, and an Apple employee!
And now a drumroll for the winners…
First place went to Vanessa Carling and Kevin Brown who were dressed as Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, appropriately displayed in their denim outfits from a red carpet appearance in 2001. When asked how she felt about winning first place Vanessa said, “It was a huge surprise! I really thought the werewolf was going to take it!” And why did she dress up as Britney? She explains, “I remember listening to Britney in the car with my mom as a kid, and I always loved her sass and her fun, and I had to pay homage to Michael Scott, of course.”
Second place went to Valerie Weldon dressed as the big, bad werewolf who stole a baby lamb! When asked how she chose her costume she replied, “At community group we play a game called Lupus (similar to Mafia) and 85% of the time I’m the werewolf. It became an inside joke, so when I saw the costume at Target I had to get it!”
And Third Place went to Zach Ferguson, who was identically dressed as another co-worker named Adam Zientek, so much so that people were confused all day. When asked why he chose to dress up as Adam he said, “I thought to myself, ‘What’s the scariest thing I can be?’ And the obvious answer was a Buffalo Bills fan. Who better to embody that than Adam Zientek?”
From our work family to yours, we hope you had a great Halloween!
