Last October, an employee of the Meredith Whitney Advisor Group asked the Dollar Dominatrix (a.k.a. the famous-giver-of-frighteningly-gloomy-financial-news Meredith Whitney herself) if he had to work the Friday after Thanksgiving. Whitney, a good if not great sport (and, it appears, quite an adept motivator), replied, "Not as long as everyone comes to the office in costume the Friday before Halloween."

And so the inauguaral Meredith Whitney Advisory Group Halloween Costume Contest was born.

This year, in its second year, the contest includes a Paris Hilton (Whitney's disguise), a Mariano Rivera (some dude known around the office as "The Closer"), a Christmas Tree and an Old Spice Man, among other homemade creations -- that's right, the contest's rules strictly stipulate that all costumes be made by (severed) hand. "None of that Ricky's B.S," according to Whitney (paraphrasing). The rules also dictate that the winner be crowned "best dressed" and will receive "a prize to be determined later."
