I work in theatre. Theatre is typically a very creative environment. Unless it's being run by corporate bean counters. Like here.
The people in the Ivory Tower have declared that we are not allowed to dress up for Halloween. Of all of the work environments around, I can't think of another better suited to celebrate Halloween than in theatre.
That said, I typically do not wear anything special to work for the holiday and, sadly, can't remember the last time I was able to get dressed in costume to go anywhere.
For some strange reason (I wonder why...), I really would love to be something fun at work this year. But it has to be subtle and subversive.
My ideas so far:
-Wear a track suit and be The Bride from Kill Bill.
-Jeans, T-shirt, leather jacket, motorcycle boots, and my maille gauntlet to be Sara Pezzini from Witchblade.
-Shorts, boots, tank top, sunglasses, & guns (?) to be Lara Croft.
I think Witchblade would probably be the easiest to pull off and not get noticed.
So, my creative friends, any ideas? What do you think I should be that the bean counters wouldn't notice?
