History of Witches
Witches have been one of the classic Halloween choices for kids and adults to wear for decades, and now it's easier than ever to find or build a witch costume for your next night of costume fun, be it trick-or-treating with friends or family, or going to a spooky costume party on Halloween night with this collection of outfits and items!
A witch is wise in the way of spells and magic, able to make a special potion, a tasty brew, or enchant a little beast into a friend. They've been featured in hundreds of books, movies, television shows, and plenty more, creating a wonderful collection of styles and costumes to draw on and take inspiration from. Witches love their nice, long dresses, their big, pointy hats, their brooms, their tight corsets, and their Halloween colors. They have capes or cloaks, gloves, high-heeled boots, or anything else you want to give them to make your next witch Halloween costume unique and special!
