TBT: CE Pro Staff Looks Back on their Past Halloween Costumes

Halloween is CE Pro’s favorite holiday, and beyond the candy and trick or treating, the staff loves to dress up. Here’s a look at some of their past costumes.


The 1980s may be long gone, but that doesn’t mean the decade’s impact has faded away. Just recently the Internet was buzzing from all of the “Back to the Future Day” talk on Oct. 21, 2015, and cultural influences from that time, including music, clothing and language that have had a lasting effect on society.

With that in mind it’s not surprising that CE Pro’s staff was caught up 1980s pop culture, and now we can take a look back on how Jason Knott, Julie Jacobson, Arlen Schweiger, Jessica Camerato, Ray Lyons and myself survived the era that brought the world Valley Girls, hair bands, the “Stay Puff Marshmallow Man,” Pac Man and Camaro IROC-Zs.

Here is a look back at some of the staff members best costumes from past Halloweens:
