Each week during the month of November the team will be sharing their responses to a ďQuestion of the WeekĒ series.
WEEK 1 Ė What is the best costume you have ever worn for Halloween?
Gary Mac Herring, Owner Ė The best costume Iíve ever worn was my first couples costume with my wife. We were the 'Miss Mary Mack' nursery rhyme. She was Miss Mary Mack and I was the elephant that jumps over the fence. I dressed in all gray with elephant ears and had a fence that I carried in front of myself. It was fitting for two reasons Ė my name is Gary Mac and my company is called Mary Mackís Inc.
Kevin Sandy, Inventory Manager & Customer Service Representative Ė A nerd. It was easy, cheap, and I didnít have to think about it, my wife came up with the idea. All I had to do was buy suspenders and glasses.
Carli Herring, Accounting Manager & Customer Service Representative Ė Not saying it was my best costume by any means, but at the time I surely thought so, being it was last minute. Letís take it way back to my junior year in college circa 2003 where it seemed like I had an exam in every class that week. Being sleep deprived, and overwhelmed, I googled a quick, easy, and cheap outfit. Low and behold a "black eyed pea" popped up. Needless to say, that was my costume for Halloween that year. I was excited since I could make it myself. I dressed in black, painted a black circle around one of my eyes, and pinned a cut out of the letter P to my shirt. The funny part is people didn't get what I was until I explained myself. Obviously, I didn't win any awards, but at least I had tried. I have always enjoyed celebrating and participating in Halloween since it was my Grandmother Butler's birthday. She always said she was a witch, but she was definitely not that!
Dustin Keipper, Marketing Director Ė My favorite costume isnít actually mine, but itís the one I made for my son this year. He is going as a fidget spinner, I made out of cardboard. It lights up and spins. The best part is, he had an idea and I turned it into reality.
Brittany Taylor, Marketing Manager Ė Thatís tough. Iím an identical twin, so Iíve been a part of a couples costume my entire life. First with my twin, and now I pair up with my husband. So, Iím going to give two answers. My favorite costume with my husband circa 2012 as Bonnie & Clyde. I had to tuck my long blonde hair under and pin it to give myself short hair, it looked so real. All of my friends thought I had chopped my hair off. My favorite costume with my twin sister would have been in grade school, I think 5th grade to be exact, when we went as Two-Peas-In-A-Pod. Our heads were the peas and we had a pod that connected us. It was tough to wear in class but it was fun walking down the halls connected, we were the line leader(s) that day. [Shout out to our Mom for always making out costumes. Store bought was not our style!]
Matthew Thornton, Customer Service Representative Ė The best costume Iíve ever worn was during college. I dressed as Lucius Malfoy from Harry Potter. I got a blonde wig and even bought replicas of his walking stick and wand for my props. It was legit.
Joana Gonzalez, Customer Service Representative Ė The best costume Iíve ever worn has to be last years (2016) costume Ė The Day of the Dead. I woke up super early, before work to curl my hair and do my own intricate makeup. My outfit was pulled together with a few pieces from my grandma and the thrift store. Iíve actually been the same thing for the past 3 years but last year has been the best overall.
Trey Murawski, Marketing Coordinator Ė When I was 3 years old I was a gigantic dragon and it was HOT. This was a last-minute costume, bought at the very last second. I wasnít happy being this goofy looking dragon but you see I had a little bit of an accident. Two days before Halloween I decide it would be a good idea to cut my hair. I ruined my only opportunity to be Jack from Titanic for Halloween. Ha, good times!
Tammie Cox, Kitchen Production Manager Ė I always dress up for Halloween but choosing my favorite is too difficult, because the best year was the year I didnít dress up as anyone but myself. My oldest brother and I went trick-or-treating (a big no, no without a costume) by ourselves and spent the night enjoying lots of candy. It was the BEST Halloween.
Josh Pruyn, Production Assistant Ė It would have to be the year I dressed as 'Flavor Flav.' I went to Walmart and bought the biggest wall clock they had and tied it around my neck. I used Mardi Gras beads as my gold chain necklaces, and dressed in a jersey, jeans and boots.
Wanda Mae Stanley, Kitchen Assistant Ė Iíve never been one to dress up for Halloween, even as a child. However, if I was, I would probably choose to dress as something traditional, like a witch, with long black hair and funny looking moles. Similar to the witch from the Wizard of Oz.
Rosaura Nunez Morales, Production Assistant Ė Unfortunately, I canít answer this question, because Iíve never had a costume. I didnít dress up as a child and as an adult I simply prefer not to. However, sometimes I do put on a little makeup or a wig. Wigs are fun!
Cornelius Ingram, Shipping Manager Ė I think I was in Elementary School. The entire class had to bring yarn to school to make cabbage hair together. We were the Cabbage Patch Kids.
