Decade costumes can be a fun, easy and creative way to do Halloween in style! Whether you prefer to go for the glamour and romance of the swinging 20s, get your 70s groove on or party like it’s 1999, you can put your decades costume together by combining your own wardrobe with pieces from your local Buffalo Exchange.
We’ve all bought them – the easy costumes that come in a bag, all accessories included. They look great in the picture, but come Halloween night, it always feels like something’s missing. So, how to make an average packaged costume into an award-winning one that’ll make you the talk of the party?
Trying to catch everything you need to create your very own Pokémon costume? With our Bulbasaur, Charmander and Pikachu character packs, it’s easy to bring your favorite Pokémon to life. Once you have the hat and accessories from these packs, putting the rest of your outfit together is as simple as adding clothing in the appropriate colors. Wear pieces you already have in your closet or add a little fun and excitement with tutus, tights and legwarmers.
Let’s face it – bagged costumes can be cute and convenient, but if you’re planning on attending several parties and want a different costume for each, they can really add up. What if you could create three different looks for less than the cost of one bagged costume?
Here at Buffalo, we LOVE dressing up for Halloween. Outlandish styles? Multiple costume changes? Count us in! But what to wear? We all know how hard it can be to choose a look, so here are some of our favorites from last season to get those creative juices flowing. We can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with this year. Happy costuming, Halloweeners!

I’m not much of a baker. Scratch that, I do not bake at all. So, when chatting with baking addict (and Seattle Buffalo employee) Jamie LeReshe, I posed a challenge to her: give me some tasty recipes for spring that even I can make. Faster than you can break out the measuring cups, she came through with a trio of delectable offerings…
