Flashback Friday: 2011 HomeAway Halloween

In less than two weeks, the HomeAway Headquarters will transform from a bunch of jeans-and-a-t-shirt-wearing Austinites, into a parade of quirky characters, ranging from pop culture icons and video game characters to mystical creatures and children's toys. The sky is the limit when it comes to the creativity displayed during our annual internal Halloween costume contest and I'm sure 2013 will not disappoint! For this Flashback Friday, we wanted to brag about share a video about our team's winning costume from 2011. We loved the idea of being life-sized Legos, but we needed a twist to make our costume stand out as truly original...

As any LEGO® fan knows, one of the best things about the toy is that they come in lots of different character forms. And, with the success of the The Avengers movie, we thought, "why not turn our legos into popular superheroes?" Done and done.

I'm sure you're dying to see how the costumes turned out, so I won't keep you in suspense any longer...

The HomeAway.com PR Team created superhero Lego costumes for Halloween 2011! They won "Best Group Costume" at the company costume contest! The team dressed up as Flash, Green Lantern, Captain America, Batman, Robin, Superman and Thor.

Also, here's a little taste of this year's Halloween decorations from our Instagram account:

Stay tuned to see who will win the 2013 contest!
