Kooky, Creative Disguises

Posted by

Our office is bursting with creative people and, as you might expect, we go all out for Halloween. My friends and coworkers Zaki and Karissa planned their colorful pop-culture costumes weeks in advance and worked nights and weekends to make sure everything was ready for their debut.

Recognize them? They hand-painted these costumes inspired by the music video for Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know," featuring Kimbra. They both donned wigs to make sure the looks were just right.

The verdict? "It was a hit! We were shocked at how many people recognized us on the street, and delighted every time a stranger sang lyrics at us as we passed," Zaki says. Unfourtunately they couldn't show off their costumes at the office because of Hurricane Sandy, but I didn't want you to miss out on seeing them.

Listen to the super-catchy song and see the video for yourself. Warning: It'll be stuck in your head all day!
