When someone says “Halloween”, one of the first things that pop into your head is the image of a witch on a broomstick. As one of the most recognizable figures of all time, the witch costume has been a mainstay of Halloween since the beginning.
There’s just one question you have to ask yourself, “Are you a good witch, or a wicked witch?” Because the witch is one of the most popular costumes every year, no matter what your taste, there is a witch costume out there for you. From scary to sexy, ugly to glamorous, or any combination you wish, finding your “inner-witch” is easy.
Putting together a classic witch costume (ala The Wizard of OZ) is fairly simple. Start with a long black dress, black hose, and black shoes or boots. Add a black wig, pointed hat and old fashioned broom, and your costume is complete. Take a look on-line for just the right pointed hat and broom; it will save you a lot of time and effort. For makeup, you can go with the all green face and hands, but that is not necessary. A pale face with black lipstick, eyeliner, and fingernails all help to complete the look.
Of course, if you prefer to show a little more of your sexy side, there are a wide variety of witch costumes that will help you reveal whatever you are comfortable with. There are sultry crop top ensembles, lace-up fitted dresses, sexy schoolgirl witches (ala Harry Potter), even a sexy version of Glinda from the Wizard of Oz. These costumes put a whole new spin on casting spells.
If you are looking for something a little scarier, there are some great makeup kits out there that include prosthetic noses and chins, warts, and even long witch fingers. If that’s not scary enough for you, there are plenty of full witch masks that are sure to elicit a few screams. Remember, if you want to be truly scary, you’ll have to work on your evil witch cackle. When playing the evil witch, there is no such thing as over-doing it, so have some fun this Halloween and be the best witch you can be!
