How to make a Halloween Witch Costume

  1. Create your witch hat from dark coloured cardboard or thick paper by rolling into a cone and gluing. Good witches could wear crowns or tiaras which can be made from paper or cardboard. Decorate the cardboard or paper with silver, green, black, red or any other coloured glitter and glue. Perhaps even cut out some cat shapes, bats or insects and glue to the hat.
  2. A witch nose is optional and these can be bought cheaply and add greatly to the effect. Good witches may go instead for long false glittery eyelashes, blush spots, pink lipstick and face glitter.
  3. For bad witches, black out a tooth using special effect cosmetics.
  4. Use a dark brown or black eyeliner pencil add a few big black moles to make a scary, wicked face.
  5. Wear layers of old, black and grey clothes. Skirts layered over skirts and petticoats look witchy.
  6. Pick holey sweaters, rusty silks and strange garments. Good witches may choose to dress in choose pretty, sparkly dresses, flouncy skirts and pretty net petticoats.
  7. Create a witch cape by swathing the fabric round your neck and shoulders and pinning with a brooch at the neck. An old long skirt cut up the middle is great for making a cape.
  8. Wear black shoes and tights. Striped tights look good especially red and black, green and black or purple and black tights.
  9. Carry a broom or for good witches a fairy wand.
  10. Stuff the pillow down the back of your top for a hump back appearance.
