There has been a lot of buzz about geeky, social media and viral Halloween costumes that will be popular for Halloween 2012. After doing some research, I compiled a list of Mission Web Marketing’s top 10 favorite picks.
Twitter Bird – If you’re a social media geek like we are at Mission Web Marketing, try out Sue Reynolds’ Halloween costume idea to be the Twitter Bird. Pairing this costume with a Follow Me @MissionWebMrktg sign would be ideal!
Google Panda – Dress up like a Panda with a Google logo on your belly to play into the 2011 Google Panda Update!
Steve Jobs – Not everyone will like this, but dressing up like Steve Jobs, even a zombie Steve Jobs could get some morbid laughs.
Cloud Computing — Stephanie Buck, a Mashable writer featured blogger Sobrina Tung and her Cloud Computing costume in their 2011 Tech-Themed Halloween Costumes. This idea is a great geeky costume!
Facebook Timeline — Create a cardboard cut out of a Facebook timeline with your head in the Profile Picture spot. You’ll surely look like a dork.
Oldspice Guy — If you can pull off being as studly as the Oldspice Guy and the commercial that went viral last year, do it.
Progressive Girl Flo and Mayhem — If you’re going as a couple or even alone, dressing up like the insurance icons Flo and Mayhem can be lots of fun. Flo just reached Ad Age’s top most influential women in advertising and acting like Mayhem on Halloween will get some laughs. One of our employee’s daughters, Jennie Jacobs did it right last Halloween with her boyfriend Kyle Philips.
Sophia Grace and Rosie – If an adult dresses up like either of these two, your costume will be a hit!
QR Code - Last on the list is another Sue Reynolds’ costume idea with the QR code.
