Somehow I ended up doing three costumes for Halloween at work this year (no costumes, sitting at home in the dark watching movies, after work, thank you very much).
Walter White and Heisenberg, though I’ve never seen a single episode of Breaking Bad for my solo costume, and then Brette offered to be my Pinkman. “I’ll just wear one of those suits, eat some Funyuns, and be my normal self.”
For our team costume we decided to go as TMNT characters and paraphernalia. I mean, in a perfect world, we would have had no ninja turtles and just would have been auxiliary characters and inanimate objects, but Davis (in the box head costume) had already prepared a masterpiece, so… we just made sure no one coordinated on their costumes at all. Me and Steve went as Raphael’s sai, Davis as Donatello, Landon as Michaelangelo, Michelle as Raphael, Brette as a Pizza, Meghan as a manhole cover, Grant as the word ‘cowabunga,’ Sean as Leonardo, Kortney as Erma, Alex as April O’Neil, and Landon as Casey Jones. I could not get over how spot-on Kortney’s Erma was. She found that sweater and that skirt on the same rack at a local thrift store! Meanwhile, two of our video guys, Garth and Wayne, went as Wayne and Garth, because that sort of silver platter presentation just doesn’t come along every day.
You guys, I just love my team so much and will never get over my good fortune of working with such talented, kind, and good humored goons.
