Is it unprofessional to dress up for Halloween at work?

Some people go all out for Halloween and aren’t about to let a little thing like their job get in the way. For them, dressing up for work is a way to bring some fun and autumnal holiday spirit to the office. Others say work is work, not a party for fourth graders. They think you should save the dressing up for after work. But can you remain professional while looking like a Pokemon? Or should you forgo the costume and respect the job?

There are right ways and wrong ways to dress up for Halloween. Don't appropriate. Don't think your costume is an excuse to be offensive. And definitely bring food to the potluck. But some say that even at their best, Halloween costumes are not appropriate for a professional setting and the work and play should stay separate. What do you think?

Halloween haters need to stop. Anyone who says that a little spooky fun is bad for the work environment needs to consider that day-in-day-out of the same routine will not make you more productive. It will make you bitter and bored. Getting dressed up, binging on some sugar, and getting a little silly is good for you. Well, maybe not the sugar part, but the self-expression part is definitely healthy. 

And you can still get the day’s business done, even if you come to work looking like Chewbacca. But not Sexy Chewbacca. That’s just wrong.

Not everyone is cool with Halloween, to begin with. It can be too gory for some, sexually or religiously inappropriate for others. But even for those who love the whole spectacle, Halloween is by its very nature distracting. You can’t really get anything done when your cubicle neighbor comes in dressed like a dinosaur and your manager is singing “Thriller.” 

Save the fun for the night time, and get your work done.

If no one says you should dress up, definitely don't.
