Making a Witch Costume For Halloween

The witch is one of the most popular Halloween costume for females. I don?t know if it is the flexibility (spooky, sexy, old, young...) or just the fact that, in reality, Halloween is still celebrated by today?s witches. But to be honest, the reason is not important.

You don?t need to spend a lot of money to buy a witch costume. This Halloween why don?t you try to make one from scratch?

The hat
The hat is the most important piece of a witch?s costume. Although some witches can get away without one you can never be sure whether it is a witch, a sorceress, or just an ?old hag?, so don?t even think about not including one in yours.

The classic pointy black hat is really easy to make with black card stock. Cut a circle with a circle opening to put the head in and then create a cone and glue them together. If you want you can cover the card stock with fabric (in that case you should crunch the paper and make the cone not so pointy).

Remember that if you are going for an alternative look (such as a red witch) you should make the hat match the rest of the costume.

The dress
The way the witch dresses can make her a sexy, spooky, or plain ugly witch.

For an ugly spooky witch, use a long black skirt (or buy lots of black fabric and tie it around your waist with a string and make it even more rustic) and add a long sleeve black sweater. Use a pillow to serve as a hunch and black or red shoes. You can also use a black cape with a hood over your costume if you are not using a hat.

For a sexy witch, use a black mini skirt, a black top, black or red high heels or boots and lots of black lace. A sexy witch uses lots of red (gloves, jewelry, socks)... and is not afraid to show some body.

Accessories
Another key element of the witch costume is the broom. Any old broom will do, but if you are going for rustic get a stick from the local forest and some straw or dried herbs and tied them together.

Other good ideas to include with your costume are jewelry with occult symbols, red apples, a black cat plushie, white makeup, a fake nose and warts, maybe a portable cauldron. Witches are simple characters that don?t use a lot of accessories, so don?t overdo it.

Creating your very own witch costume can be easy if you use your imagination and common items from around the house. It is a simple costume that never loses its appeal and it is an excellent choice for this Halloween.
