The familiar chill in the air can only mean one thing, Halloween is near! While we debate what costumes we’ll wear amongst our coworkers, we wanted to reflect on some of the best ones we’ve seen from another work setting, The Office.
Which Halloween costumes from The Office made our list?
The Office Halloween episodes, like the Christmas ones, always proved to be some of the best of the series. There is no way I was the only one anxiously awaiting which costumes each character was going to wear, while also hoping to accurately identify them.
Some costumes were hits, others were misses, but today we’re choosing five that really stood out amongst the rest!
5. Sexy Toby
Season 9, Episode 5
Two words: Sexy Toby? Not ones we thought we’d ever hear, let alone come to know them as a Halloween costume.
But yes, Nellie decides to dress up as Michael’s archenemy Toby for Halloween that year. If that isn’t awkward enough, Toby seems to be into it?
He seems instantly pleased and attracted to Nellie, going as far as attempting to kiss her… Make that double awkward, which is why Nellie’s costume had to make our list!
4. Sith Dwight
Season 2, Episode 5
Truthfully Dwight has some of the best Halloween costumes ever! Which is why you may be seeing more of him on our list.
Aside from his incredible work ethic, both in and out of the Scranton office, he’s also a man of many interests including Star Wars. His costume in this episode is easily recognizable, as he wears a black hooded cloak paired with a red plastic lightsaber.
Even if you are not familiar with Star Wars, you essentially know who he is, yet he’s met with confusion from his fellow coworkers. Isn’t that always the case?
I’d bet if Jim wore that costume everyone would know who he is. But because its Dwight, not everything comes as easily.
Simple but memorable, Dwight’s Sith costume makes our list!
3. The Scranton Strangler
Season 7, Episode 6
From our pop culture to The Office pop culture lore, we have Dwight making our list again with his Halloween costume of the dreaded Scranton Strangler. This serial killer is mentioned several times in the show, becoming such a prolific off screen character, that one theory believes the killer to be Toby!
Toby actually served as a member of the jury, believing the man they accused to be the Scranton Strangler was innocent. That is until he receives bodily damage from the man.
The arrest of the Scranton Strangler doesn’t occur until season 9. Dwight’s costume looks like a combination of a 1920’s noir costume and a modern-day supervillain: trench coat, white gloves, hat and black bandana over the eyes with the letter S.
Dwight makes this list once again for this ingenious costume choice.
2. 3 Jokers
Season 5, Episode 6
What is better than one Joker? How about three?
Nowadays we see a multitude of Harley Quinn costumes, mostly inspired by Margot Robbie’s portrayal of the wacky and sexy Batman villain and Joker’s girlfriend. But back when The Dark Knight shook up the Batman realm with Heath Ledger playing the role of The Joker, everybody wanted to dress up as one of comic books’ most famous villain.
Dwight, Kevin and Creed all dress up as The Joker. Each of their costumes and takes on Ledger’s portrayal vary. But there is no denying how hilarious it was to see all three of them get annoyed at each other for having the same idea.
1. Creed’s costume?
Season 9, Episode 5
How can this not be anyone’s Number 1 choice? Is Creed crazy, unhinged, odd or really just a genius in disguise?
We may never know. But what we do know is that it is Creed himself who takes the top spot on our list for his Halloween costume (question mark).
Dressed in his usual business attire, Creed attends work on Halloween with splatters of red blood all over him. Apparently, he didn’t know today was Halloween, to which he is grateful as no one will question the red blood.
But where did the blood come from? Who did it come from?
We may never know.
