Happy Halloween 2012 – Costume Origins and Ideas

Happy Halloween!

This spooky day isn’t complete without costumes, candy and having a good scare. But have you ever thought about the origins of Halloween costumes? This all began as a season of celebration (and superstition), as people in ancient Celtic culture would dress up to scare spirits away. These costumes often involved spirits, ghouls and other frightening things. Over time, Halloween and the idea of costumes became more popularized to be more child and pop-culture friendly. Aren’t we lucky that people everywhere can now enjoy Halloween in their own different way?

Here are some online marketing-themed spooky costumes:


Black Hat SEO (also available in white and grey hat)


Google (other options include: Bing, Yahoo, AOL, DuckDuck Go. You can also bring back the oldies like Ask Jeeves and Dogpile!)


Evil Penguin (also available in evil panda)

Sleazy salesman (Cold-caller selling questionable SEO services… enough said!)
