Halloween Costumes for PR & Marketing

(L to R, clockwise): Some of Cision’s research & social staff in their favorite costumes. Heidi Sullivan as an 80s dance queen, Teresa Dankowski as a kitty, Gina Joseph as a Detroit Tiger, and Lisa Larranaga as a mobsterette.

This post was compiled by several of Cision’s most festive staff.

Halloween is today and we can’t let it pass by without suggesting some costume ideas for PR & marketing professionals.

If you haven’t picked out your ensemble, we have a few ideas for you:



Wear a giant QR Code on your chest so people have to download it to find out what you are.

 

 

  • Dress in a RIP tombstone bidding farewell to traditional press releases and carry a birth announcement for social releases.

 

 

Dress as a word cloud.

 

 

 

  • Tom from Myspace – Wear a white T-shirt and a lei because, let’s be honest, he left the company and is probably on a beach somewhere.

 


Go as Facebook Timeline. Pin a Cover Photo to your T-shirt and spend the entire party reminding your friends of all of the embarrassing things they did four years ago.

 

 

  •  Dress as your favorite meme: Snarky Willy Wonka, “Not Sure” Fry from Futurama, Ermahgerd Girl, the list. goes. on.

 

 

 

Dress as your favorite app.

 

 

  • Be a Pinterest board!

 

 

 

A pitcher! Baha, get it?! We know PR professionals do much more than pitch, but we couldn’t resist!
