Are you one of those who are not eager to buy a Halloween costume? Fret not. You may have something in your closet that you can use, in case you need one for a party you are invited to on short notice. I am not talking about being resourceful here like using eclectic materials around your house and putting them together. I am talking about being ultra-resourceful by using what you are wearing everyday at work.
Here is a list of jobs that actually wear a Halloween costume everyday at work. They may not be as scary as the usual creepy ones you see trick or treating, but at least you do not have to shell out any cash to buy a costume you only wear for one night.
Take the ones that you use in the actual fire disaster. That way, there is more drama into it. More dirty, the better. You can even add some stains of dirt on your face and arms. That will make it look like you just came out of a building on fire. Don’t forget the helmet and whatever accessories you want to add for kicks.
If you are ending your shift before a Halloween party, do not change anymore. You are good to go. Leave the gun at home and have fun at the party. The colorful array of badges makes a colorful costume.
You always see a chef uniform in Halloween stores. If you are a chef, why look for another costume? Wear your chef hat. Add some kitchen utensils to carry around to accessorize and voila, you can now blend in with the Halloween crowd.
Priest and Nun
A friend donned a nun outfit for Halloween last year. It was just plain nun habit without a bloody knife inserted into her chest like the usual scary Halloween costume. It was straightforward and no fuss. If you are a nun or a priest, just be yourself in a crowd with costumes and you will not be left out.
I know doctors and nurses work crazy hours. If it is habitual to you to crash with your scrubs on, Halloween night is the best time for you to do that. Just wear your stethoscope around your neck and you are ready for trick or treat with your friends.
I am pretty sure I missed many more possible everyday outfits that can pass for Halloween costumes. Feel free to chime in.
