Dwight Schrute

Dwight Schrute Costume

Dwight Schrute can be seen wearing his everyday brown suit and being socially awkward due to his lack of social skills. He is the “Assistant to” the regional manager in selling paper, and he believes that he is the most competent person in the office. Dwight struggles with his relationship with Jim because Jim is always playing pranks on Dwight–but he makes it so easy! Dwight’s style and personality mirror his quirkiness that truly makes his character a favorite.

Three Hole Punch Jim

Three Hole Punch Jim Costume

Three Hole Punch Jim is one of Jim Halpert’s Halloween costumes on The Office. Each year, the Dunder Mifflin employees all come up with hilarious (and sometimes inappropriate) costumes. One particular Halloween, Jim dressed in a plain white dress shirt with three circles stuck to one side of his shirt. Here’s what Jim said to Dwight about his costume. “I’m a three-hole punch version of Jim. ‘Cause you can have me either way — Plain White Jim, or Three-Hole Punch.”

Some recognizable costumes for “The Office” characters include Michael Scott’s “World’s Best Boss” mug and suit, Dwight Schrute’s mustard yellow shirt and glasses, Jim Halpert’s simple office attire and signature smirk, and Pam Beesly’s receptionist outfit with a white blouse and cardigan.

Some lesser-known facts about “The Office” include that the building’s exterior shots were filmed in a real office building in California, not Scranton, Pennsylvania, and that several cast members also served as writers or producers for the show, including Mindy Kaling, B.J. Novak, and Paul Lieberstein.

To create a Dwight Schrute costume, start with a mustard yellow short-sleeved shirt and a brown suit. Add a dark tie, black dress shoes, and a calculator watch. Complete the look with Dwight’s distinctive rectangular glasses, which can be found at a costume store or online retailer.

Some memorable episodes or scenes from “The Office” that can inspire a costume or party theme include “Casino Night,” “The Dundies,” “Beach Games,” and “The Dinner Party.” Recreate elements from these episodes, such as Michael Scott’s cheesy awards or the infamous “Serenity by Jan” candles, for a fun and immersive experience.

Incorporating memorable quotes from “The Office” into your costume or interactions can add an extra layer of authenticity and fun. Some fan-favorite quotes include:

“That’s what she said!” – Michael Scott

“I am Beyoncé, always.” – Michael Scott

“I’m not superstitious, but I am a little stitious.” – Michael Scott

“Identity theft is not a joke, Jim!” – Dwight Schrute

About The Office

Michael Scott, Dwight Schrute, Jim Halpert, and the tons of other characters who come through the show are employees of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Some of the characters love their job, but the majority of them are not impressed by the job or their boss. Each character’s intense personality makes for a dramatic but hilarious interpretation of everyday office life!
