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!
For an easy costume that you can rework again and again, throw back to your favorite decade! The best part about this costume? You can piece something together out of your own closet or pick up a fun collection of items that you’ll be able to re-wear for parties throughout the year or even incorporate into your fall wardrobe.
And the cutest costume goes to…
Need a foolproof costume this year that you won’t have to spend hours putting together? Dress as your favorite animal! All you need is some face paint, some ears (make your own out of a headband and construction paper or pick a pair up at Buffalo Exchange) and regular clothing in the appropriate color or print. Easy as one-two-three!
Kid, you should be in pictures
For an instantly recognizable costume that’s sure to start conversations, recreate your favorite movie character. We love this Willy Wonka and Joker! Movies are also a great place to look for couples costume inspiration. For a true throwback, try Marty McFly and Doc Brown from Back to the Future or Mary Poppins and Bert!
You’ve got to be kidding meme
Opt for a topical costume this Halloween by replicating one of the year’s funniest memes or YouTube videos. Last year, it was pizza mouse. This year, how about a tiny Drake on your shoulder? The power of the meme is yours!
If you’re looking for a costume that’s classic but not kiddish, go for goth. Dress in all black, throw on a dark red or purple lip and accessorize with a wide-brimmed hat or mask. Bonus points if you want to throw on some zombie face paint.
