Oct 29, 2010 - Halloween at Radiant
The goal: Jack Skellington from the Nightmare before Christmas.
Here's me (sans gloves).
Ella watched me get into make-up, then put on the coat and bat-collar, but she was NOT amused.
Much like when she saw Gaby in Mad Hatter attire,
Ella was beside herself.
So, off to work.
We had a costume contest. They broke us into groups - Scary, Funny, Original, and Best Ensemble.
Here are some of the best ones by category.
Patrick Watson as 'the roadkill zombie' from "Plants vs. Zombies".
(I'd never heard of it, either. Sounds like a terrible movie. We are a technology company.)
Dennis, our security guard, as a dead boxer
I forgot who as a Mad Scientist.
I don't know as 'dead hockey player'
I don't know as "Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire"
Jack Dugan (real name) as a child molester, I guess. Officially, his costume was titled "Nice Legs."
Someone from marketing as Richard Simmons.
Someone from accounting(?) as a Sitting Duck.
Matt Hortin as Fred Flintstone

Lutz Johnson as a Pittsburgh Steelers Garden Gnome
The executive team as the rescued Chilean miners.
The Stadiums & Arenas group as "Stadium Stuff" or "things from a ballpark"
