Sorting out your Halloween costume can be a real nightmare.
They’ve improved a lot since the good old days when you’d slap on some dodgy face paint and outfit which would inevitably rip on your night out.
For some fright fans, its the highlight of the year, while others just don’t have any spooky spirit in them.
Whether you’re still in the office or working at home, workers have been seizing the opportunity to add a little bit of fun to the final official working day before October 31 by breaking out the fancy dress.
One man was left red – or perhaps blue – faced after his colleagues conned him into dressing up as a Smurf on his own.
The hilarious prank played out in public after he duly dressed up like the cartoon character before heading to his workplace.
He painted his face to look like the blue character and even wore a white wig to complete the look.
A hilarious photo on Reddit captures the man at work as he smiles for the camera.
On r/Funny, he explained: “All of my coworkers agreed to dress up as smurfs for Halloween.
“I’m the only one to go through with it.”
He added in a comment: “We all agreed to dress up as different smurfs and our boss as Gargamel.
“No one else dressed up so I’m the only person in the warehouse who dressed up.”
People were left in stitches by the hilarious prank – with one person joking: “‘I’m the only one to go through with it.’
“Narrator: And thats when the coworkers knew their plan was a success.”
A second added: “He’s the only one with balls, now blue balls but still big balls.”
A third replied: “You’re the one with courage and integrity for following through. Good for you.”
And it turns out he’s not the only one to be solo-repping Halloween at work.
One woman who went all-out to celebrate the special occasion went viral after turning up to work to find every single one of her work colleagues had bypassed the tradition and opted for normal work attire instead.
Shaking off any potential embarrassment, she proudly shared the photo of her incredible efforts with the caption: “I’m the only person in my entire office of 30 people who dressed up today and I’m in a full body banana suit.”
Her appealing bright yellow outfit didn’t go to waste after she shared her woe on r/Wellthatsucks.
One person joked: “You should make like a banana and split.”
Another asked: “Did you lay on the floor and trip people?”, while one fan raved: “Dude you came to work as a huge banana. That in itself is so cool to me. I adore you.”
