Scary Witch Costumes
October 14, 2011
Few things are more sononomous with Halloween than witches, let alone scary witches. Ghosts, spooks, and pumpkins are all in competition with the witch.
This impressive Halloween figure is both fun and scary. Witches evoke plenty of imagery from the Salem Witch Trials, to the Blair Witch, Witches and Wizards from Harry Potter, and even the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz.
If you really want to be a witch for Halloween, then look no further. Scary witches, wicked witches, classic witches, whatever the look is that you want, we've got: witch costumes. So check it out.
5 Scary Witch Costumes
1. Classic Witch Adult Costume
No frills here. This is just your basic classic black witch costume. For all true witches out there, this is all you need. You don't need fancy colors or ruffles or a short skirt to complete your witch costume. This is just the bare necessities.
Embrace this traditional black look for Halloween or other fun costume parties.
BONUS TIP: Don't forget to accessorize. Just because your costume is simple and to the point doesn't mean you can't have long black nails or a medallion.
2. Sorceress Adult Costume
The name may say sorceress, but the look screams witch. And really, what is the difference between the two?
This costume offers a great look. Instead of black, you are draped in purple and the tattered fringes to the costume make it look like you didn't just hop on your first broom yesterday. You are a witch with experience.
This excellent witch costume also comes with neck and hand medallions to give you accessories to bring your character to life.
BONUS TIP: Look up some 'spells' online. Find incantations or most anything written in latin to strike fear into those who cross you.
3. The Wizard of Oz Wicked Witch Costume
There's no arguing that this is a scary witch. The green and black contrast with the costume is enough, but if you take it to the next level by coloring your skin green, you're a Halloween hero!
This can be a fun costume to wear along with friends who go as other characters from the movies. And they don't even need to be Dorothy and the gang. It would be much more fun for you to have your own pack of flying monkeys.
BONUS TIP: Watch out for anyone with a bucket of water. No seriously. Someone might think it'd be funny to see if you 'melt'.
4. Maleficent Witch
This is the witch costume which departs most from the usual look that comes to people's minds. Though you may recognize it from Sleeping Beauty.
What sets this costume apart is: everything. It's cut differenlty than all the others, it has a much different color scheme, has a very high color and head piece with horns, and it gives you the power to enslave humanity.
Okay, so we made that last part up. But this is an iconic scary witch costume all its own.
BONUS TIP: Carry around a basket of apples and see if you can't trick people into eating them.
5. Scarlet Witch
Red is often an ominous color. With the splashes of red accenting this scary witch costume, you're sure to cast fear and doubt into the hearts of those you come across.
Being our only featured costume with a slit cut in it to show off some leg, this witch costume sets itself apart from the pack by daring to be different.
Lure others to their demise with this sultry and scary witch costume.
BONUS TIP: Play up your red accent color. Ruby red lips and a crimson ring or two will give your costume an added accent.
