My husband would tell you that if I wanted to be a witch for Halloween that I don’t need a costume. He says this tongue in cheek, obviously, but I’m not sure I find that to be very funny. The witch theme has existed for a long time, so you have so many options that you may not be sure which way you want to go. Have fun with this one, and ignore the comments if your husband is anything like mine.

When most people consider the witch Costumes that have been popular for almost forever, they frequently think of the witch from the Wizard of Oz. This powerful image about what a witch is has held onto our collective imaginations for a long time. She had green skin, warts, and long, pointy fingernails. This really is common for Halloween, although not always in the same fashion. Most witch Costumes have one or more of these things included however, making that witch one of the best known throughout the history of movies.

You can’t have a proper which costume without the proverbial broomstick. While some may think a black cat and a pointy, black hat are must-haves. You don’t have to do anything that you don’t feel comfortable with, because that’s the point, isn’t it? And by the way, there is no law stating that you must be an ugly witch? Remember the good witch from the Wizard of Oz? Now that’s an idea. But, you don’t have to be good to be pretty, go as a great looking bad witch if you want. That one is a lot of fun for adults and children alike.

Wherever you look you are likely to find witch costumes that you can buy all as a whole costume , or in single pieces that you can put together all on your own. Also, in the event that you opt for the green face paint, there are some things you should consider first. You should test the paint on skin first, as it could cause a breakout or an allergic reaction. You could dab some under your chin and leave it sit for some time to see what happens. If something happens, you can perform an online search to see if you can find hypo-allergenic types of face paint. Whatever you do, have fun this Halloween.
