Wearing some kind of Halloween costume – especially when several people on a team do it – can be fun and figuring out what to wear can get the creative juices flowing. With that, here are some ideas for Halloween costumes for marketers.
The Metaverse is a bit of the rage in 2022 and why not turn the headline-grabbing topic into a Halloween costume? There are several ways to go as the Metaverse – which is basically a virtual reality environment. Here’s one.
Wear this “I’m prettier in the Metaverse” shirt (available in 10 colors).
Then wear a cheap VR headset on your head, like this one. To see you’ll have to wear it over your eyes, though!
Here’s an idea for a homemade ghostwriter Halloween costume.
Alternatively, you can also buy a ghost costume on Amazon – often for under $20.
White hat SEO
Going as a hashtag is relatively easy as Amazon also sells hashtag costumes.
Converting unknown audiences into known connections helps us deepen that relationship. Why not go as audience development? Easy breezy self-made costume:
I then asked my kids to write names on them:
Then put empty ones on the front of a shirt. That’s the unknown audience:
Then, of course, we convert those unknown people to known audience members. Now we know their names and the known audience is on the back of the shirt.
You could create a poster that looks like a display ad and wear the poster around your neck. Here’s my attempt at this costume.
My original idea was to cut out the face and then I could stick my actual face through there to really go as a display ad. As you can see by the picture, the poster was way too big, but it’s an idea.
A/B testing certainly is a useful strategy for marketers and why not recognize it on Halloween. This is a costume I had custom-printed.
The Brand Police
Every company has somebody who is in charge of the brand – a.k.a. the brand police. That also could make a good costume. The below is custom-made, but you can also order police uniform costumes on Amazon as another option.
Those are some ideas for Halloween costumes for marketers and I would say most – if not all of them – can be used in an office environment and in a remote setting.
