Frightful happenings have been reported at Ellison! Hordes of terrifying characters took over our UK and US offices yesterday, from Day of the Dead to Ellison’s own Addams Family, bringing terror to all who witnessed.
From Marketing and PD, to Sales and Supply Chain, everyone was transformed into amazing characters!
The scenes were so dramatic that they had to battle it out in a costume competition at the UK office! Due to amazing group costumes as well as individual efforts, the judges decided to make two categories of winners this year!
The winner of the Best Individual Halloween Costume was awarded to Lucy Duckett, from our Finance department! Lucy took inspiration from a Disney Pixar classic, Finding Nemo, dressing up as the infamous Darla, a little fish’s worst nightmare. Featuring her signature braces and poor Nemo in her grasp!
Unsurprisingly, our design team did not disappoint, with an amazing group effort of a merciless hunter and his game. Shooting dead everything from a giraffe to lions and even an elephant! Of course, they couldn’t resist utilising some of our Sizzix dies, including the Tropical Leaf Bigz for this jungle adventure! This stunning display saw them champion as Best Group Halloween Costume winners!
In our canteen we also held a bake sale, brimming with homemade treats and spooky concoctions. Our office is clearly full of talented bakers, with amazing efforts all round!
This event was all in aid of supporting our charity of the year, Nightingale House Hospice. All proceeds from the costume competition entries and the bake sale were gifted to the charity, helping raise money from another office fundraiser. Halloween is a great excuse to get creative and have some fun in the office, whilst helping raise money for charity!
