Five for Friday: Best Costumes for your Office Halloween Party
Avaya's social media manager here. This will be the second consecutive year our headquarters in Santa Clara, CA hosts an employee Halloween party on Thursday, October 31 (I should know, I'm on the committee). We're awarding prizes for costumes in 3 categories:

This got me thinking. What are the 5 best Halloween costumes for a work office party?
Clearly, coming dressed as a Pepsi can to a party at the Coca-Cola headquarters in Atlanta would win scariest. They would either play 'kick the can' or try to drink you. (sorry, but my mom is a die-hard Pepsi lover)
No political statement here folks. Just come dressed as any politician and give everyone the day off, or the week, or the month. All without pay. Here's looking at you, government shutdown. Bonus: You can also use that costume to hit on a coworker: "Where have you been sequestered my whole life?" #I'mSureHRapproves
Never fear, remote workers or out-of-the-box thinkers, there's no need to put on pants. Dress up from home, join in on the party with Scopia Mobile, and you could look like this amazing group:
Now, this has to be done delicately. And only if your boss has a sense of humor. If they do, this is sure to win you funniest, or a pink slip. I don't know how I'm going to come dressed as a 6'5" Asian man - but I accept the challenge. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
No, twerking is not allowed. And no foam fingers associated with any sports mascot. It's ruined. Forever. But hey she's a PR genius, right? We're still talking about it 6 weeks later. How's that for Twitter reach and engagement? Still don't want to heed my advice? Prepare to deal with these loving gazes from your coworkers:
Stay classy interwebs and Happy Halloween everyone!
