Christmas Characters to Dress up as for Your Office Party

Ditch the corporate suits for this year’s Christmas party and opt for something a little more fun instead. We’re talking crazy costumes that are heaps of fun and bring to life all your favourite North Pole related characters. Think Santa, Mrs. Claus, Rudolph the reindeer and of course the Grinch too. Taking your party to a new level with these fun dress ups is a great way to add a hilarious element to your festivities. Be sure to head out afterwards and share the Christmas cheer at a great venue.


Grab your Santa hat and do your best rendition of the big man himself. You’ll need plenty of red clothing and a pillow or two to shove under your shirt to create a great big belly. Grab a white beard and wig for the finishing touches and you’ll be just about home. Santa needs a big sack of toys (or fun gifts for your colleagues) that should be handed out throughout the night as the fun ensues. We recommend bringing a naughty or nice list to keep everyone in line and update it depending on how things progress. Trust us when we say that Santa needs to arrive for your office Christmas party to be a roaring success.

Mrs. Claus

Every office Christmas party needs a Mrs. Claus, and yours is no exception. She’s the wife of Santa, of course, and the person who gets everything done when the pressure is on. Have fun with your costume and add some cute shoes or heels and you’ll definitely look delightful. Add some tinsel and appropriate decorations to your hair and you might even fool Santa himself. Mrs. Claus is a great option for the girls and maybe even some of the more adventurous guys too. Have fun with this one!    


Okay, so we want you to dress up as a reindeer, but you don’t have to pull a sleigh. Rudolph and the gang are invited to this special do because your office Christmas party is all about being inclusive to everyone, animals and humans alike. Get creative with your ideas and grab some reindeer ears plus a red nose to really bring things home. Grab a bunch of your best buddies and all get involved in this costume idea together. Your reindeer crew will steal the show and bring cheer to this Christmas party.

The Grinch!

Spoil the office fun in style by being the bad guy that everybody can’t help but love. This scheming character might have some bad intentions but deep down he just wants to be included. Grab your finest Grinch costume in all its green glory or simple wear a frown on your face and you’ll be good to go. This character idea is fun to play and will help to keep the night balanced between good and evil. The Grinch will bring plenty of laughs to the proceedings, even if he wasn’t technically invited.

Take the fun to the North Pole

Once the office party antics are winding down, it’s time to head out to one of Melbourne’s premier night spots for some further partying. Expect plenty of drinks, food and endless fun. Take to the dance floors and get moving or live it up besides your workmates at the bar and booth areas that are great for mingling.
