Boomerangs Employee Halloween Costume 2016 Contest Round Up

If you’ve been following the Boomerangs story for a while, you know that our staff members are rich in artistic ability and creative skills. To showcase their creativity and the versatility of thrift, we hold a competition each Halloween to see whose costume will garner the most total ‘likes’ on our Facebook and Instagram accounts. We have been looking forward to seeing staff all dressed up in crazy outfits and I hope you are too.

As you probably already know, social media is this decade’s phenomenon, so what better way to share our costumes than to use a platform nearly everyone is using. Some of the staff members have previously used a buy IG like service, as do many social media users, but that will not be used in this competition. All likes need to be natural and organic, so choose your favorite and get liking! Who knows how many likes we could rack up?

If there are any posts you truly love, feel free to share too! You could even get involved if you wanted to and post your own photos. Who knows, you may be able to beat all of our staff members and get more likes than them. Now, that would be amazing.

Here’s a recap of the 2016’s winners, along with a few honorable mentions. To see all of the images, check out
