The Office has been off the air since 2013, but your love for the show hasn't dwindled once over the years. In fact, The Office was the number one show on Netflix in 2018, with 52.1 billion minutes streamed. So I do declare that if you want people to be afraid of how much they love you, then dressing up as your favorite Dunder Mifflin employee is a must this Halloween.
The only hard part now is deciding which Scranton native you want to channel on October 31. A Michael Scott costume is classic, but a Dwight Schrute look cannot be beat. Regardless of which character fits your personality type the best, we've got an option for everyone, which is why The Office cast also makes for a great group costume idea. And if you waited until the last minute, don't worry! The secret to making these DIY cast costumes come to life is that most of the pieces you need to complete the looks probably are already hanging in your closet — or can quickly find any piece on Amazon.
DIY Michael Scott Costume
Whether you are the class clown in the office or a self-proclaimed "Best Boss," this costume has your name on it! Pull out your best suit and pair it with a Dundie, and you are good to go.
DIY Pam Beasley Costume
When your inner artist is screaming to get out but work keeps getting in the way, channel some Pam Beasley energy in order to push through. Receptionist by day, painter by night.
DIY Jim Halpert Costume
Stay true to Jim's simple style, including a classic tie and messenger bag. You'll get bonus points if you prank someone on Halloween ... maybe we suggest something with Jell-O?
DIY Dwight Schrute Costume
If your favorite food is beets (or you secretly own a 1,600 acre beet farm), Dwight Schrute is your spirit animal for Halloween. Pair Dwight's signature mustard shirt with these fake toy beets to complete the look.
DIY Angela Martin Costume
Angela has a buttoned-up look, but she's definitely not boring. Naturally you'll need a pet cat to carry with you the whole night. In the words of Angela, you'll be "just a couple kittens out on the town."
DIY Oscar Martinez Costume
If you hate people problems but love math problems, Oscar is your guy. In true Oscar style, you'll need to carry a calculator with you the whole night to prove any point you are challenged on. Facts only!
DIY Phyllis Lapin Costume
Bold colors and prints are away of life for Phyllis. Make sure you've got plenty of coral on, plus a statement necklace to round out your costume.
DIY Andy Bernard Costume
Still part of your college band ... 15 years later? Andy Bernard is the epitome of school pride, repping his alma mater whenever he can, so you can't go wrong with a Cornell sweatshirt.
DIY Darryl Philbin Costume
Fearless warehouse leader, aspiring executive, and musical genius Darryl is a jack of all trades. A simple Dundler Mifflin uniform is all you need when you're as cool as Darryl.
DIY Meredith Palmer Costume
Comfort is key for Meredith, which is why you can't go wrong pairing a simply back dress with a sweater. All you might actually need to buy is the red wig.
DIY Stanley Hudson Costume
An Argyle sweater paired with a suit will help you channel your inner Stanley. We highly recommend having your crossword puzzles ready when you are trying to avoid an awkward conversation.
DIY Kevin Malone Costume
Kevin Malone's style is ... hard to explain, but definitely not hard to recreate. A suit and tie, plus a pot for your famous chili is all you need.
DIY Kelly Kappor Costume
Kelly was clearly the most stylish one in the office, there's no doubt about that. Her dedication to prints, fun accessories, and a good theme in hard to beat, but as long as you wear your finest pink lipstick and your no B.S. attitude, you'll be golden.
