Every year, it seems like you have to do something more out of the box than the previous year – which makes it rather difficult to come up with a quality costume for Halloween. 

And with everything going up in prices, you may want to make your own costume this year. The good news is: you don’t have to be super crafty to create a unique, Buffalo-themed costume. 

However, there are only a few weeks until the Buffalo Bills play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home for, what everyone knows will be, our Halloween night. 

Last year, I was inspired by a couple who created their own costumes: the Big Blue Water Tower and a traffic reporter.

They go hand in hand, right??

If you’re not sure what to dress up as for this Halloween, take a look at these Buffalo-themed costumes that you can wear for an upcoming football game, Halloween party, or to pass out candy on Halloween night. 

They are great for couples and individuals!

If you dress up as a Goodyear pit crew member, you could get a Goodyear blimp costume for your dog. Now, how cute would that be?!  

Recently, I went to a Halloween party as Lucille Ball, and I think it turned out pretty good!

Any of these costumes are sure to catch a Western New Yorker’s attention, and if you do it right...people will be talking about your costume for years to come.

Who will you be this year?

Halloween is right around the corner, and you may see some different colored trick-or-treat buckets if you are handing out candy this year. 

Those colors could be a child’s favorite color, sure…but usually, a different colored trick-or-treat bucket has a deeper meaning, so every child can feel included in Halloween. 

This year, there is a big push for teal buckets, which are designed for kids with allergies – including peanut/tree nut allergies. 

Kids walked around neighborhoods in Western New York, handing out teal pumpkin posters that many residents posted in their windows to spread awareness for trick-or-treaters with food allergies. 

The poster may look a little like what you see above. 

However, there are plenty of bucket colors that have a deeper meaning behind them. 

Take a look at the list below for bucket meanings. 

  • Teal buckets - represent those with food allergies, so consider using candy free of allergens, especially peanuts. 
  • Blue / dark blue buckets - signifies a child with autism. 
  • Purple buckets - represents a child has epilepsy.  
  • Pink buckets - represents breast cancer awareness, meaning that a person in the home is a survivor, knows someone who is a survivor, or is currently undergoing treatment.

Doctor Koshy, a developmental-behavioral pediatric specialist, explained the idea behind these colored pumpkin buckets. 

“The idea behind these colored pumpkins and buckets is rooted in a way to help families with children with all types of special health care needs navigate a night of trick-or-treating with a little less stress, and more patience and understanding,” Dr. Koshy said

Have fun, and stay safe this Halloween!
