We always find it really amusing when we have a visitor from outside our industry to the office. This morning we i was giving a tour of our warehouses and facilities to a guest and they were perplexed that even at this time of year Adult Fancy Dress Costumes are in demand. So i thought for anyone who doesn’t get the appeal of a random fancy dress costume to liven up someones day, here’s the simple psychology behind it – when your dressed up as someone else, its harder to be yourself.
Where as you might think twice about chatting to the hot new girl in the office, on fancy dress Friday (yes big corporations do have them!) it would be almost rude for Austin Powers not to chat her up!
Think the lad in the next cubical has low morals after overhearing some of his weekend plans – don’t live in silence, don on a Nun Costume and read him the riot act.
