Witch costumes are a staple of Halloween. The story of witches and their witchcraft has been present since medieval times.
We have often wondered about the authenticity of their magic and, at the same time, been afraid of them. Many children have, at least once in their lifetimes, considered this – what if witches actually existed?
From time to time, many fantasy books have featured witches, including the White Witch from Narnia, the average female student in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the witch from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, and the countless number of villains in fairy tales all over the world.
Witches have been an enigma to people for a long time, and even today, finding an occasional witch in some of the more out-of-the-way villages is not totally unheard of.
For Halloween, the costume of a witch has been an all-time favorite and never goes out of style.
Witch costumes for an adult female come in many varieties, ranging from an ugly hag to a smoking hot, bad witch, so you’re bound to find a costume that’s perfect for you.
The Wizard of Oz Witches
One good idea for a witch costume is probably the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz.
Dorothy’s archenemy in the story, the Wicked Witch, dons the traditional black robe outfit with a pointy hat.
You can improvise a bit on the costume, going for a suit and skirt instead of the robe. Do not forget to paint your face green, though.
If you want to be the good one, choose Glinda the Good Witch. Wear a pink gown with a bell shaped skirt. Glinda has beautiful hair with a crown.
The choice is yours. Be good or wicked.
Harry Potter Witches
Since the 90’s, the Harry Potter has taken the world by storm. There’s the strict Professor Minerva McGonagall with her dignified robe-spectacles-and-hat ensemble, the schoolgirl Ginny Weasley with the Gryffindor tie and scarf, and the sadistic femme fatale Bellatrix Lestrange.
Tonks, who has the power to change her appearance at will, is a great choice for Potter fans who want to get experimental and funky with their witch costumes.
A typical Death Eater costume or a Quidditch uniform with a racing broom can also be an option.
Get your wand ready to cast some charms, ladies, for these witch costumes from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter are well-known and demand to be flaunted.
You can go totally sexy and be a bad witch with a costume that features a low-cut corset with stockings and subtle fangs (don’t mistake with a vampire’s fangs, though. Just the big teeth of a witch will suffice).
Black, tight, and low is bound to be good or the adult scarlet witch costume with the cape and the leg split will make sure you will have wizards falling under your charm.
Get some extra accessories like a feathered broom or a handbag of cauldrons.
Depending on how wicked you want to be, go with the lacy hot purple or black (or a combination of both) corset with a frilly short skirt and some appropriate makeup.
You can also try the sexy schoolgirl witch costume for the night. Short black skirts and a low waist shirt with a stylish witch hat will make you quite the desirable witch.
Lastly, there is the basic black velvet dress for naughty witches and trust me when I say that a fitting velvet dress always has the ability to leave gaping admirers in its wake.
For those looking to have some actual fun by scaring the wits out of others, the sea hag witch costume is a great choice.
Tentacles and slimy-looking faded green robes and a hag wig is sure to turn the eyes. Make sure you don’t smell as bad as the witch, though.
Your Own Witch
If you are not interested in going as a renowned character, you can always make up your own version of a witch. Choose an outfit that accentuates your personality and your looks and makes you feel comfortable.
On the brighter side of things, there’s the Kandy Korn Witch costume that comes in a flashing orange and yellow combination. This will help you stand out from all the black and purple witch regalia in the party.
So don’t waste your money on a common ghoul dress or something that is likely to be common and boring. Stir up the magic with the witch costumes and enjoy your Halloween to the fullest.
