Photos By Buffalo Exchange Berkeley

Halloween should be fun, first and foremost, so don’t stress out too much about finding something to wear! There’s a costume out there for everyone, from complicated cosplay to simple signature looks. Here are some easy Halloween costume ideas brought to you by Buffalo Exchange Berkeley. The best part about these is that you can dress them up as much as you want, depending on your Halloween style!

Where’s Waldo              

Buffalo Exchange Where's Waldo Costume


Waldo’s iconic striped shirt, hat and blue jeans will be recognizable to almost everyone – if they can find you! To get even wilder, gather a large group of Waldos together for a real-life Where’s Waldo – be sure to get pictures of all of you doing silly things just like in the books! This is an easy Halloween costume that will cost you almost nothing.

We Come in Peace

Buffalo Exchange Alien Halloween Costume

Halloween costumes that give you and outlet to be creative are even better – so why not be an alien? No one can say what works or doesn’t when it comes to the extraterrestrial, so play around with textures and colors. Add a mask or a helmet and you’re a bonafide robot alien hybrid! We recommend sparkly, metallic, bright accessories because, if aliens are real, they’re definitely down to disco.


Buffalo Exchange 1920s Halloween Costume

Effortless and elegant? Say no more! Try out an easy Halloween costume that still makes you the most glamorous  person in the room – a flapper! Decade looks are always a Halloween hit and 1920s flappers are no exception. All you need is a dress that you feel great in (velvet or fringe work well), some pearls and a headband. There are no limits to how detailed you can get with a costume like this – add gloves, feathers, sequin bags and makeup or keep it simple. Either way, you’ll look good and have a great Halloween!

By Buffalo Exchange HQ and Buffalo Exchange Eugene

The beauty of shopping for Halloween costumes at Buffalo Exchange is that we have everything you need to create your costume – from the everyday clothing items that form the basis of a look to the costume accessories that really bring it to life. Plus, our Costume Stylists can help you put together your entire last-minute Halloween look. Read on for some easy ideas!


Buffalo Exchange Librarian Halloween Costume

What a classic! Pair a pencil skirt with a button-down blouse, cardigan and oversized readers to get the look. If you’re missing one or more of these, check your local Buffalo to see what they’ve got. Added bonus for props like an old book or pencils in your chest pocket.


Buffalo Exchange Rugrats Halloween Costume

For Didi Pickles, aka the Rugrats mom, find a basic red dress. You’ll just need to add green glasses, a yellow necklace and a wig. This makes for a good couples costume as well! You can create Stu Pickles with a green button-up, a blazer and a polka dot tie, which can easily be DIY’d or found at your local Buffalo.

80s Aerobics Instructor

Buffalo Exchange 80s Halloween Costume

Here’s another last-minute Halloween costume that never fails! Get your 80s workout instructor on with a pair of leggings, a one-piece swimsuit and sneakers. For a little extra oomph, add a scrunchie or sweatbands and don’t forget that side ponytail! This one’s also comfortable enough to wear all day and night.

Bob’s Burgers

Buffalo Exchange Bob's Burgers Halloween Costume

The Bob’s Burgers cast is one of the easiest to replicate with street clothes – and makes for a great group costume as well!

For Linda: Find a long-sleeved red or orange tee, a white waist apron (could be DIY’d out of a white skirt) and red glasses. Throw on a pair of Converse or Vans, part your hair down the center and voila!

For Bob: You’ll need gray slacks, a white tee and dark-colored shoes. With a mustache and a fake burger (optional, but a pretty good prop), the costume is complete!

For Louise: This one’s super simple – all you need is a green dress and a pink hat. You can even DIY the ears on the hat with pink felt.

For Tina: You can find a blue tee and a denim skirt by shopping the racks at Buffalo. Just add a pair of black-framed glasses, tube socks and a yellow barrette.

For Gene: Yellow tee, denim shorts, red Converse. ‘Nuff said.
