Creating an Iconic Witch Costume

Creating an Iconic Witch Costume

Are you searching for a classic Halloween costume? If you want a timeless outfit, consider showing up as a witch. We have plenty of great pieces for you to go beyond the basic witch costume. Using some iconic witches of pop culture as inspiration, we will help you create and upgrade your witch costume this spooky season.

Recreating the Iconic Look of Mary Sanderson

Let’s start with a witch from a famous trio of witches. Mary Sanderson is easily one of the most iconic witches from pop culture. This icon wears a colorful outfit in the film. Orange, red, and purple seems to be her best colors. Keeping with her bodiced style, we suggest the Burgundy Wine Breanna Bodice, pairing it with the Classic Medieval Skirt. Of course, no Sanderson sister would be caught dead without a hooded cloak. Wear the Aaron Canvas Cloak in Wine over the top.

In addition to her colorful outfit, Mary Sanderson rocks a wild purple and black hairdo. You don’t have to wear a wig or even style your hair into such a towering ‘do. You can simply don the Purple Split Leather Wikka Hat. Finish off the Mary Sanderson witch costume with the appropriate footwear. You could wear the Buckled Solstice Witch Shoes or our Witch Hazel Shoes.

How to become a medieval Scarlet Witch

While the Scarlet Witch is a more modern witch, that doesn’t mean that you can’t steal her iconic look. Wearing red is a must with this popular character. For a medieval take on this witch, wear a long, flowing red dress like the Lenora Premium Cotton Dress. Of course, the Scarlet Witch is also known for her flowing red cape. You can wear a cloak like the Carl Canvas Cloak, the George Armour Cloak, or the Bron Canvas Cloak. Any of these would work, just pick what best suits your taste.

There are a couple more pieces that you can wear to finish off this witch costume. The Black Widow Gothic Boots feature some red to match the rest of the outfit. However, if you want a more medieval look then you could wear the Prescott Jackboots, whichever suits you. For a medieval finishing touch to this witch’s outfit, why not wear a red headpiece like the Ladies Royal Velvet French Hood?

How to Create A Medieval Agatha Harkness Costume

Of course, where would the Scarlet Witch be without her equally iconic witchy antagonist Agatha Harkness. We took our inspiration from the end of the WandaVision series to create this witch costume. You can combine the Lenora Premium Cotton Dress in blue with the Bron Canvas Cloak in black, grabbing the color scheme of this dark look. If you want the splash of white at Agatha’s neck, you could wear the Ruffled Gothic Jabot. Of course, the Small Pewter Cameo Necklace makes a perfect finishing touch.

The Iconic Look of Minerva McGonagall

We used the iconic Minerva McGonagall as inspiration for the outfit pictured at the top of our D&D mage outfit article. Make sure to check it out for all the links to the potion bottles, wands, and the other accessories we added to the robe and hat to recreate the feel of a Wizarding World witch. No list of iconic witches would be complete without a mention of this Deputy Headmistress of Hogwarts.

Bonus Witch Costume

While we have listed some popular witches from more recent pop culture, we felt that we just had to include one witch from an iconic late 90s Halloween movie: Grandma Aggie. This witch’s style is classic and easy to put together. Just don a red velvet gown and a red velvet cloak to look like this feisty and sassy witch from Halloweentown. We recommend the Berengaria Gown with the Long Velvet Cloak with Hood.
