    WORK SAFE Halloween Costumes?

    Ok, so I know there is a thread on Halloween costumes, but lets admit, not many of the ideas are work friendly.

    I decided to start a thread for those of us who have to dress up for work... I have my actual costume planned, and I'm usually good with costume ideas, but I'll admit, none of my costumes are even close to work friendly.

    Anyone have any ideas for a cool, creative costume?

    Unfortunately the majority of the costumes I've seen are not work safe :/

    I would say the MAC facecharts also and used to wear a witches hat to work. That was when I was working in a supermarket! Because legally thats all could wear without getting sued for something!

    depending on what kind of environment you work in (office, retail, etc) here is some stuff:
    -Rosie the riveter (the history nerd in me)
    -A bug (bee, butterfly, ladybug)
    -An animal with just ears, a tail and gloves w/normal work clothes
    -princess/queen/royalty in general
    -magician or magician's assistant
    -Jane Jetson or other cartoon girls
    -a single die out of a pair of dice
    -cleopatra
    -a celebrity, angelina, amy winehouse, kat von d, etc.
    -stepford wife/50's housewife/trophy wife complete with baking for your coworkers? lol
    -a briefcase girl from deal or no deal
    -harry potter
    -proper disney character (not the slutty version) like minnie mouse, snow white, alice in wonderland, etc.
    -gangsta (soulja boy!)
    -japanese geisha
    -superhero (make your own up)
    -pokemon characters? or other cartoons if you're into that stuff
    -a sim! get 2 party hats, paint them green, glue their bases together, attach them to a headband and walk around in normal clothes saying weird things like "coman shnala?"
    -scooby doo character
    -corpse bride or other tim burton characters
    -space cadet
    -any of the hairspray characters
    -partly cloudy with a chance of showers: Dress in a sky blue outfit with cotton ball or felt clouds pinned on. Carry a watergun and shoot people with it when they ask what you are!
    -tornado: dress in dark gray or black and tie random toys and debris to you including a cow... lol

    Look at little kid costumes and then don't sex them up. A lot of adult costumes are things kids go as but are sexed up versions (ie. witches, Alice in Wonderland, etc.)

    Retro costumes are fairly safe; people often do the 50s, 60s, or 70s

    This reminds me of one of a friend's brother who dressed all in black and sewed her old barbie dolls randomly around on his clothes. He was a "babe magnet."
