Mummy Misfit, THE HULK, Pirate, Lady Gaga and more…Halloween looks from the Benefit HQ

We’re having an office Halloween photo contest! Our office is never short of creative people…err ghosts! Whether it’s the operation assistant or the brand analyst or the director of first impressions, they all have some sort of skeleton (aka photo) hidden in their closets. Check out our Halloween Hall of Fame and let us know which one you’d vote for!

Liam, Operation Assistant aka THE HULK: “I went to a party as THE HULK (That’s right, I’m THE HULK not Shrek or a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle). I used green body paint which took quite a few scrubs to get off that night. I had a green tinge to my skin for a couple of days but it was all worth it…great party!”

Sophia, Visual Merchandising Assistant aka MIME TWIN: “We used BADgal liner & whiteface-paint to achieve this horrific look. We realised that the more we danced, the faster our make-up came off!”

Nina, Director of First Impressions aka MUMMY MISFIT: “I played ‘Mummy Misfit’ in a show called ‘The Misfits’. To achieve my ‘Mummy Misfit’ look, apply a really light foundation and then dab talcum powder on your face whilst the foundation is still a little tacky. That way, the talc sticks to it better. Use good ole’ black eyeliner for your lipstick and a really heavy dark grey as an eyeshadow all around your eyes. I even used it on my ‘bags’. It was the only time they were ever truly hidden!!”

Holly, Operations Assistant aka LADY GAGA, PIRATE, and CLOCKWORK ORANGE): “My favourite out of the three was Lady Gaga. It was for my birthday party last year. I based my dress on an outfit I’d seen her wear at a concert. I handmade the decorations on the front, bought the gloves, a microphone, and wayfarer sunglasses. Then, I ramped up the false lashes and loads of pink lipstick!”

Leanne (Holly, her sister, submitted this photo secretly), Brand Analyst aka CHER: “And just to embarrass Leanne, she was CHER at my birthday party (brave, brave girl-but at least she has the body for it!). Then she had to bouffant her hair as big as possible. It was a great outfit, and she totally rocked it when ‘If I Could Turn Back Time’ came on…”

Luke, Website Guru aka Guy in ripped-up shirt: “Me and a few friends went out in white shirts with a bit of blood on and some small rips, but all night long, people thought that it’d be funny to literally rip the shirts off our backs. By the end of the night, we were just left with shreads, and it was FREEZING. I have no idea what make up techniques were used on me. I just knew that a girl did it.”

Tash, Finance Analyst aka Amy Winehouse & Michael Jackson: “Here are a couple of very attractive pics of me as music stars…I was Amy Winehouse for an Underground Party at High Barnet and Michael Jackson at a MJ tribute party just after he did.”

More Halloween photos to come…vote on our Facebook page…don’t forget that ghosts can look glam too! xx

  1. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page
    layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
