The idea of dressing up in costume is synonymous with Halloween. While some Halloween costume trends change year after year, other classic styles remain timeless—like dressing up as a witch. Trying to figure out how to put your own spin on the style? You’ve come to the right cauldron! Here are 26+ DIY witch costumes that will have you spellbound!
It’s always helpful when starting from scratch to have inspiration readily available for the style you’re hoping to recreate or completely make your own. Looking to copy a witch from pop culture? Movies and TV shows like Hocus Pocus, The Wizard of Oz, WandaVision, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Halloweentown, etc., have plenty of witchpiration.
Otherwise, if you’re more interested in pulling together a witch wardrobe without too much toil and trouble, start with the basics of grabbing a broom, pointy hat, and black dress. Embrace the eerie ensemble even more with fingernails shaped into sharp points, mystical makeup, spunky striped socks, a crystal ball or wand accessory, and/or a mysterious cape to top off the costume.
You can summon vintage vibes, incorporate surprising pops of color, wear a woodsy-look, or even go classic-Hollywood. You can emulate a Sanderson sister, Marvel mystic, or choose between the infamous “Good Witch” and “Wicked Witch”—the possibilities are endless!
So, which witch style to choose? That’s up to you! Abracadabra—enjoy copying these 26+ costumes from your own closet!
