Witches have long been in the history of mankind. People back then even have the habit of burning down people if they were accused of witchcraft or being a witch. But now people just dress up for Halloween as witches just to have fun. Since most women dress up in a witch costume, there have been a lot of variations to it.
1. The most popular variation is the sexy witch costume. It makes the wearer look a bit daring as the costume exposes some skin. The dark and gothic look of the witch will be overlooked as you will be distracted by the curves emphasized by the sexy witch costume. Most of the time brooms and hats add the extra effect.
2. Another variation to the witch costume is the plus sized witch. This is the opposite of the sexy witch costume. These witches’ goal is to have fun dressing up for Halloween. They just want to wear costumes and play their roles. They may not be fit for some other costumes but they do make the witches look more realistic. Ariel’s tormentor Ursula can be your choice of a plus-sized witch, wearing a sexy bustier.
3. Let’s not forget that the little girls also like wearing witch costume sets, although, not as often as the grown ups. That’s why children’s witch costumes are not that abundant since the little girls prefer to be the heroine and not the evil antagonist. Still, they look very cute in their witch costume along with their miniature brooms and witch hats. You might like to introduce your kid to Glinda, the Good Witch from the Wizard of Oz and her costume is a cross between a fairy and a ballerina.
4. More witch costume variations are out there. Some are even dressed as witches together with their pet dogs and cats. But the cats are more popular as witches have been associated with cats, especially the black ones or those with mismatching eye colors.
Of course a witch costume is never complete without a broom. They are believed to be witches means of transportation especially when the moon is full. To make your own broom, you can get some straw (the organic type), some twine and a long stick which you can use as the handle. Just make sure that the stick has been cleaned and varnished to the desired color. All that’s left to do is to place the straw around one end of the stick and tie it securely with the twine. Now you don’t have to buy a pre made witch’s broom to match your witch costume. They are also made from simple material you can just find lying around the house.
