Every Halloween, the inspiration for my costume comes to me really, really late. This year it came so late that I thought I might not even dress up at all. Then, last week, while sitting at a stoplight, the nerdiest costume idea ever popped into my head, and I knew I had to do it. All it took was some felt, some pillow filler and some hot glue: I’m a cloud! But not just any cloud, specifically, I’m “in the cloud.” (In reference to cloud computing). I know! I warned you it was nerdy! This is what happens when you work in the Silicon Valley.
And in case you’re still in need of some Halloween costume ideas, here are my costumes from the past few years. The best part is that they’re all really easy to make (satyr furry pants not included) which is perfect for all my fellow procrastinators out there.
Chick: before there was Twitter, there were just little baby birds. This costume placed in the top 3 at the company costume contest. As you can see, the competition was pretty stiff! (And these people were just from my team alone — that was one spirited company).
Happy Halloween, everyone!
