File Halloween under The Top 3 Chillest Days at Work: It's one of your few office-appropriate chances to break from your power suit/oppressively buttoned-up "office drone" style to dress up in vintage getups and face makeup.
But if you're going to take part in some costume contest shenanigans, the same rules don't apply as, say, your anything-goes college parties. It's preferable to stand out but not have your distracting outfit land you in a thread with HR, right?
