32 Halloween Costumes for Internet Marketing Geeks

“I knew I’d arrived when I saw people dressing up on Halloween as my character.” ~Jane Badler

Saturday my family and I went to a Halloween party/dinner. However, at 1pm we were still having troubles trying to decide what to go as. A few web searches showed that there are some ambitious and creative people out there when it comes to Halloween costumes.

This got me thinking, and I started typing in Internet marketing costumes ideas. I was surprised (and probably shouldn’t have been) to see that marketing geeks truly show their love for their industry come Halloween. Below are the top family friendly costumes I found that will bring out the web geeky kid in all of us.

Have a great Halloween! ~Paul W

P.S. Lindsey and I ended up going as a Priest and Devil. I hope with a year advance notice I may be able to talk my wife into one of these costumes Ü.

Here are 10 more ideas that I couldn’t find images for but would make great costumes.

  • Bing – I know I have MicroHoo as the Bing picture above, but I was genuinely surprised to see the lack of costumes for bing. I am guessing we will see more next year.
  • Robots.txt – I am not sure how you can make this look different from a regular robot costume, but maybe someone can turn a filing cabinet into a robot and say it is a Robot text “file.”
  • Internet Explorer – Personally, I am not surprised that I couldn’t find any images for Internet Exploder.
  • WordPress – Being a huge fan boy for wordpress I can see my self being this next year.
  • Safari Browser – For those Mac lovers out there, pull yourself away from the iPhone costumes and use that Mac creativity to display a Safari browser costume.
  • Squidoo – A gaint squid!
  • Google Sandbox – I can see this being a really easy costume. Get a large kitty litter box, cut a hole in it big enough to get around you and fill up with sand. Finally, print off the Google logo and put it into the sandbox.
  • Roger MozBot – Someone NEEDS to do this costume!
  • 301 Redirect – Another easy costume. Just get a traffic sign  and paint 301 redirect on it with a U-turn symbol.
  • Unique C Blocks – Not really sure how to do this one but the true geeks of us would really appreciate it.
