Halloween lands on October 31, 2021. In honor of the spookiest holiday of them all, we got to thinking: If Microsoft held a Halloween costume party, which of the brand's many entities would absolutely crush the competition?

Seriously, think about it. You know that Satya Nadella and co. probably have wild costume ideas they're just waiting to whip out. And we're talking about a company that puts Master Chief front and center in a good chunk of its marketing; elaborate and fun costume design isn't a foreign concept to Microsoft.

So, with Microsoft lore in mind and trick-or-treating on the brain, we ask you: Who would knock everyone else out of the park at a Microsoft Halloween costume party?

Naturally, there are plenty of other inclusions that could fit that list. Witch Cortana or Windows Hello wearing an OnlyFans logo mascot costume are two easy examples. If your favorite idea isn't on the main list, sound off in the comments.

And if you need a refresher on what some of the main list's inclusions are about, here's the scoop: Craig the Brute wasn't always the rock 'n roll legend he is today. There was a time, back in 2020, when he looked... well, different. And as for Steve Ballmer's Lake Bill costume, he has a history with taking dips in the pond.

In any event, if you love the Halloween season and want to criss-cross your festive spirit with your extensive knowledge of all things Microsoft, here's a good place to do it. And if you plan on going to any costume parties yourself, feel free to share what your own outfit plans are.
