Witch costumes, like vampires and zombies, just never die. Come All Hallow's Eve, there will be witches everywhere. You can be a funny witch, a scary witch, a sexy witch or whatever kind of witch you wish.

Witch costumes, along with wizards, warlocks, ghosts and ghouls, go back to the deepest memories of Halloween. On All Hallow's Eve, it was said, the spirits of those who died during the past year walked the earth. Looking for another body to possess. To avoid having one's body forcibly leased out, the villagers walked the streets in frightening costumes to scare the spirits away. Bob the Builder and the Power Rangers were a long way off.

Witch Costumes for Everyone

All you really need for a witch costume is a dark outfit and a pointy hat. But that's just the beginning. A long black wig would be your next priority, and then maybe some green face paint. A hooked nose and a broom complete the picture. If you want to be the Wicked Witch of the West, her striped stockings are available online. And if you don't feel you look good in black, there's also a costume for Glinda, the good witch in the pink prom dress.

Sexy witch costumes abound for adults. The basic ragged black dress can be cut short or slit to the side to show some fish-netted leg. Corset bodices, cleavage, and some heavy eye makeup add to the sizzle. In one of these hot costumes, you won't need eye of newt to cast a spell.
