Welcome to Geek-O-Ween: Double rainbows, superheroes and the super rockers of KISS

We’ve seen double rainbows. We’ve seen superheroes. And the executive team at Big Fish Games is dressed up as members of the 70s super rockers KISS.

Halloween is one of the best geek holidays of all, and to celebrate we’re collecting some of the most fun and unusual costumes today. Send us your favorites with a short description to john@geekwire.com and we’ll post in our gallery if it’s suitable for our geek audience.

Here’s a look at some of the photos we’ve compiled so far, but I know there’s more.

–Seventeen members from Zillow’s marketing team recreated the famous “Double Rainbow” on Friday, the hilarious YouTube video that’s attracted more than 31 million views to date. Zillow’s double rainbow even includes a cloud, a pot of gold, a leprechaun and a mystical unicorn. (Now, just imagine what would have happened if Hungrybear saw this?)

“Mess with the TeachStreet crew on Halloween and sooner or later a failed military experiment, Oddjob, and Mr. T. will come after you,” says Joseph Sunga, center, pictured with Scott Windsor and Phil Nash.


“Zombie studios game designer Jaimy McCarthy and INRIX software design engineer Jim England want to eat your brains.”

    Cheers to all the geeks in Seattle who took the time to get into the Halloween mood today! Something tells me that the geeks in other parts of the country might take themselves too seriously for this sort of thing. Another great reason to live in our beautiful city.
