I love any excuse to dress up. Today, my BFF Trina and I finally won the office costume contest after almost three years of trying. This year our costume was based on an office inside joke, but I wanted to share our pride and joy with you. Here are some previous costumes of ours too, so you’ll know just how many things a tall redhead and a short asian girl can be together:
First, a throwback to our college days (I think this was 2009). We actually weren’t even working together at this time; I just thought I would throw it in since it was cute. We were Angela Kinsey & Karen Filippelli from The Office:
Fast forward to 2011, our first year working together. Our company was so small that it didn’t have a Group category, so our votes were split between us and we didn’t win. Black Swan & White Swan:
In 2012, we were Hipster Disney Princesses – Hipster Ariel & Hipster Jasmine:
And this year, we went as a devoted woman and her cat. And we took the cake! We won first place for Group, and now all of our efforts feel justified. I bought this awful cat hood/paws thing off Amazon. It shed everywhere. The nose I had custom painted by a lovely seller on Etsy. Pair that with some face paint, fishing line for whiskers, nude lipliner, and a white ensemble, I was the purrfect white kitty. I wasn’t going for cute – I was going for terrifying, actually. Mission accomplished!
And here we are, in all of our fabulousness, after photos were done:
Hope you guys are having a wonderful Halloween!
