Independents Get Spooky for Halloween

By
NEW YORK—With Halloween on the horizon, there’s no shortage of inspiring ideas for a little office spruce up. Last weekend, we took a look at some of the ways ECPs are getting excited for Halloween on social media, and independents are no exception. In fact, being independent might just mean a little more freedom to have some spooky, creepy fun in the office this October. When it comes to dressing up and decorating the office for Halloween, it’s pretty easy for ECPs to stay on brand. Eyeballs are a staple of Halloween décor, and some of the best Halloween costumes don’t just lend themselves to wearing glasses—they demand it. Imagine trying to dress up as Harry Potter, or Velma from Scooby Doo without the perfect pair? It just wouldn’t work.

So, if you’re still in need of some Halloween inspiration, fret not—independents on social media have got you covered. Plus, Illinois College Optometry put together a public Pinterest board, chock-full of fun Halloween ideas for optometrists, too.

Here’s a look at some. They’re hauntingly good.
