Costumes For Your Coven

Make sure you and your crew #slay at the costume party in an iconic group costume. Think characters that are more recognizable together than apart – like Cheech and Chong, The Powerpuff Girls, the Scooby gang and Jerry Seinfeld and his friends.

Grab your broom and fly to your local Buffalo Exchange to find everything you need to bring your costume to life (and spice up your fall wardrobe). None of these costume ideas scream you? Then make sure to have your fortune told by one of our costume stylists – their predictions are scary good. Happy bargain-haunting!
