We touched upon Witches and Wizard costumes yesterday and prior to the Harry Potter phenomenon these were a staple diet of many Halloween parties.
The classic witch costume can still be seen in a long black robe or dress, plus cape and hat, but things have moved on over the past few years and although black is still a good colour for Halloween, there is so much more choice when it comes to both Witches and Wizards. The witch, shown in the image, is one of our pettitcoat dresses with a few accessories added. Why we like these petticoat dresses is that they can form a base for many different costumes,which (or should we say witch?) means you can use them several times, therefore they represent really good value for money.
Wizards of course also tend to be depicted in long robes, with long beards and large floppy or pointed hats, but thanks to the likes of the Lord of the Rings films, many of the robes have moved away from what was the more traditional moon and stars look to a plain sombre approach. Whatever your take on Witches and Wizards, we stock a variety of costumes, plus accessories such as beards, wigs, masks and hats to make your costume stand out from the crowd.
The Black Cat costume mentioned yesterday was once seen as a Witch’s familiar & we find that there are still those who choose to go down the route of traditional Halloween costumes of Witches and Wizards. In recent years, thanks to the Harry Potter franchise, we have found customers asking for particular Witches and Wizards, such as Professor Dumbledore, Professor McGonagall and Hagrid, plus Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, plus other students from Hogwarts, who of course are now true witches and wizards in their own right, having ‘graduated’ from the school. Although we do get the odd Death-eater request, as yet, we have not had that many people wanting to be He Who Must Not Be Named (perhaps because they can’t name He Who They Want to Be – “Oh, you mean you want Lord Voldemorgggggghh…!”) so maybe this is one set of films where good triumphs over evil, even when it comes to costumes.
Props n Frocks stocks the licensed range of Harry Potter costumes and we’ll use a combination of Halloween capes & hats to get the other Potter looks that are requested. Our range of witch costumes covers everything from sexy witch costumes to costumes suitable for a Wicked Witch Of The West outfit, and everything in between. some lines cover a UK ladies dress size up to 18.
