Ok...now I can reveal what my department was for Halloween:

We were Gladys (Cruz) Knight and the Pips...We have 1 guy in our office and 5 ladies...Mr. Cruz had to be Gladys...It was too funny!

We had records all over our walls, cds hanging from the ceiling and a walk of fame on the floor... Here's Gladys holding her Grammy...He was such a sport...the tattoos on his arms were a great touch! Here is my star... My solo PIP pic...I know that the Pips did not have blond hair...but I do... :)

Gladys and the Pips were on a reunion tour today as well...We went around to all of the classrooms and performed Midnight Train to Georgia...This first video is part of our group getting warmed up...pay attention to the end of the video...because one of the Pips wipes out...kinda...(be sure you can hear the audio)

This next video clip is our first performance...yeah...we should have practiced...Gladys didn't know the words...but knew how to ad lib...In one class we had to wait a bit before we could start the performance...so he started explaining why he got his tattoos...He pointed to one on his arm and said he got it after his first Grammy...the one on the other arm, he got while on the midnight train to Georgia...and the one on his back was after his first platinum album...such a ham! His dress was an old bridesmaid dress of mine...It also sounds like everytime he says the Pips...he's saying pimps...

I am really a Step-Pip with my blond afro...I felt like I was a clown...but it just added to the humor...I feel like I stick out because of the hair...but also because I am taller than the folks in my office...in fact, when there is something to do where height is needed...they request my "Feather Skills" to get it done...

Remember...we got our Grammy for our singing...not choreography...

In order to get to all of the classrooms, we had to drive over to another part of our campus...So...4 'fros and 1 beehive pile into a PT Cruiser (that kinda sounds like a beginning of a joke)...Afterward we went to Sonic for Happy Hour...and boy did we get some looks...ha!

Another department were all Batman characters...they decorated their offices and hallway like Gotham City...

We had the 80's girls with krimpers and all! Ahoy! That's Captain Jack Sparrow and Elizabeth...
Follow the Yellow brick road....

A leaf is our logo at work...so he is our mascot---the Fighting Leaf...along with another 80's girl...

The Inmates: They did a really good job with their decorations too...the pictures along the wall are mugshots... Sara the Inmate along with Feather the Pip.... Finally a smile from me...I guess I thought Pips had to be all serious (even when a scarecrow is squishing my 'fro in my eye)...Here I am with Scarecrow (aka Micah)...

All departments totally raised the bar for next year...I better start planning now! Hope everyone else enjoyed their holiday as much as I did! We should find out on Monday which department won the most votes from students....GO Gladys and the Pips!!!!

Holy Cow, you all do it up like my old job does. They have competitions and everything. I miss that so much. My new job doesn't do any of that. We are allowed to dress up but there isn't much else.
Maybe next year I will dress up so matter what.
Love the performances.

You guys did a great job! Wish I could have been there this year. Heritage Halloween is one of the things I knew I'd miss most this year. Thanks for all the photos! The videos are great. Awesome job! I hope you win. =)

OMGosh! What a hoot! I totally miss dressing up at work. We used to all the time, but some of the people who were always "on board" have left, so it's not such a popular idea anymore...I'll have to try being more persuasive next year.

Love the hair, btw! It's so you :)

WOW! You guys had fun!

I think you might should consider 'fro all the time. You're so brave! :o)
