Fairytale and Storybook Witch costume and accessories

For a more traditional and family friendly witch this Halloween, our Fairytale and Storybook characters are perfect. The colourful Storybook Witch and Glamorous Witch costumes are colourful and not too scary.

Sultry Witch costume and accessories

Sultry witches remind us of classic movies, casting a spell with their bewitching looks. Get the look with a body hugging black dress, a hint of skin and dramatic sleeves, lace and velvet. Make a statement this Halloween with the clingy Midnight Vamp Costume, as pictured, which comes with flared sleeves and fishtail bottom.

All you need to complete the look is a witch’s wig. Other sultry witch looks we love include the Duchess of the Manor, the slinky Immortal Soul dress with long lacy sleeves and a suggestive split. We also love the Curves Vamp, which has batwing sleeves so no need for a cape, and the Curves Witch Costume which is retro fabulous, knee length and includes a hat.

A long black wig is a classic look, but why not go for a contrast with red or purple, or go short with a vamp wig.
