    It’s nothing new that the season of pumpkins and scary spooks is here, but do you have your Halloween costume ready?

Even if you despise going out on All Hallows’ Eve, we bet you’re still looking for an easy way to get dressed up without wasting money on an outfit you’ll wear once a year — actually, maybe never. We’ve rounded up a list of places to find Halloween costumes in Hoboken and Jersey City while shopping {mostly} locally:

Schedule an appointment to get your ultimate Halloween look.

    Mint Market —  {303 1st Street, Hoboken + 339 Grove Street, Jersey City}

    In a more classic style, if you’re planning to go straight from work on October 31st {yes, it’s a Wednesday} you might want to pick up a sleek black dress or red jumpsuit from Mint Market to easily accessorize with cat ears or devil horns, another idea to avoid your purchase only being worn for one night. Yes, it’s a basic take on Halloween, but Mint Market is anything but.

    Another Man’s Treasure — {195 Montgomery Street, Jersey City}

    AMT is the ultimate thrifting goldmine. From old ballgowns, {think: Disney Princess or Pageant Queen} to men’s suits {chimney sweeper in prep for Mary Poppins, NBD}, this large selection of both clothing and accessories can inspire a unique look for your spooky night of fun.

    Vintage on First — {271 1st Street, Hoboken}

    This spot is a vintage mecca in the Mile Square with old-school NFL and NBA apparel {if you’re going for a 24k Magic Bruno Mars vibe}. Above their major collection of throwback jerseys and hats, Vintage on First has amazing and affordable dresses, shoes, and accessories; we’re even talking about the makings of Cher Horowitz from Clueless if that’s your thing.

    Very — {9 Erie Street, Jersey City}

    Even though this vintage shop has a smaller selection than the above mentioned, Very does have more home goods if you’re looking to be the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland and needs a few teacup props. They have a wide variety curated vintage goods, so definitely take a peek as you walk around downtown Jersey City.

    Noellery — {123 Washington Street, Hoboken + 321 Grove Street, Jersey City}

    Noellery is chock full of autumn-themed goodies from candles to home decor, but for Halloween, we suggest accessorizing with some easily accessible bling since Noellery almost makes it too easy by having two convenient locations by the Grove Street PATH and downtown on Washington Street in Hoboken. Noellery is the solution for those considering an Audrey Hepburn {seeking classic pearls} or a crazy Cardi B {giant earrings and feathered accessories} look for your festivities.

    Francesca’s — {318 Washington Street, Hoboken}

    Like every other major holiday, Francesca’s is stocked themed to the occasion. Whether you’re looking for something simple to wear at the office, like pumpkin-shaped earrings, to more fun accessories like a light up necklace and glow sticks, Francesca’s is always a reliable source for last minute party needs or “cherry on top” accessories to complete a look.

    And if you’re not looking to get creative and go on a serious Halloween costume hunt, here are a few spots that will be a one-stop shop for Halloween:

    • Party City in North Bergen or Edgewater
    • Michael’s {for supplies} in Edgewater or Secaucus

To Genna, there's nothing better than cheering on UT football, soaking in warm sunny weather on her balcony, and watching starry-skied movies on Pier 13. You may have spotted Genna as a customer associate at Anthropologie ...that is, when she's not doing Hot Yoga or punching bags at CKO! Most days, you can find Genna circling the Mile Square on an early morning run or attempting to justify her shopping habits along Washington Street.
