It’s hard to be super creative with Halloween costumes on a tight college-student budget, but trust us: it is so much more fun! Telegraph’s Mars, Sharks, and Buffalo Exchange all have great supplies of vintage-y quirky pieces to make your unique Halloween costume (sparkly sequin mermaid, anyone? 80’s prom queen? Vintage cowboy slash sailor?), but remember to check out some more traditional thrift stores around Berkeley for less obvious but much cheaper options! Out of The Closet and Goodwill on University both have pretty good selections of clothes, and you can go treasure hunting for a good costume, which only adds to the fun.
