Welcome to another HalloweenCostumes.com costume guide! This time, we'll be looking at witch costumes and wizard costumes and everything related: hags and crones and warlocks and sorcerers. (Oh my!) But don't worry, there's no dark magic here, only quality costumes with some chilling or campy magical themes! Of course, we'll also look at some of our favorite witch and wizard accessories, from crystal balls to wizard staffs to Halloween masks. So hop on that magical broom and let's go!
Witch costumes are one of our most popular categories, because witches are big right now but also because there are so many styles of witch costume. You've got classic pointy-hat witch costumes to characters from television and movies, and even scary witch costumes based on fairytales. So hold on to that broom and we'll help you find the best witch costume for you!
Classic Witch Costumes
|Wicked Witch Costume||Spellbinding Witch||Purple Moon Witch||Countess Witch|
|Dark Witch||Plus-Size Popular Witch||Starlit Witch||Fairytale Witch|
Let's start by looking at some classic witch costumes for adults. Of course, most of these were inspired in some way by the Wicked Witch of the West or Glinda from the original The Wizard of Oz. You've got black dresses, pointy hats, and maybe some color for contrast—like on our purple witch costumes. Of course, there are variations like the sexy witch costumes but also plenty of full-coverage options.
TV and Movie Witch Costumes
|Scarlet Witch Costume||American Horror Story Coven Costume||Descendants Maleficent||Glinda the Good Witch Costume|
|Ursula Costume||Sabrina Dress||Winifred Sanderson||Evil Queen|
Some of our favorite witches come from television and movies. We'll start with more Wizard of Oz costumes, like Glinda the Good Witch. But there are costumes from plenty of other classic stories, like the Evil Queen costume from Snow White or fun takes on Maleficent and Ursula the sea witch. We've also got modern witch styles, from Hocus Pocus to Scarlet Witch, or the American Horror Story: Coven dress! Our favorite fashionable crossover costume is the red dress from The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
Witch Costumes for Kids and Teens
|Kids' Wicked Witch Costume||Glinda Costume for Kids||Maleficent Costume||Moonlight Spider Witch|
|Salem Witch Costume||Ursula Dress||Emerald Witch||Purple Moon Witch Costume for Toddlers|
There are plenty of children's witch costumes, too! There's the Wicked Witch and Glinda, of course, and a fun take on Ursula from The Little Mermaid. But you can pick from plenty of colorful classic witch costumes for kids. Older kids might prefer the teenage witch costumes, like this all-black Malificent design or even the Sabrina costume we mentioned in the previous section!
|Witch's Broom||Graftobian Green Makeup||Crystal Ball||Color Swap Witch Hat|
|Striped Witch Socks||Purple Witch Hat||Crafty Cat Purse||Witch's Cauldron Purse|
Once you're got your witch costume picked out, you'll need to round it out with some matching accessories. A witch's broom and crystal ball are a given because they fit into most witch themes. We also designed a pointy witch's hat with ribbons of different colors so you can tailor it to your specific witchy idea. If you're going after a Wizard of Oz witch costume, consider some green makeup or even just some striped witch socks. For a casual witch outing, you can even pick up a costume purse that's cauldron or cat-themed.
|Hag Costume||Snow White Old Hag Mask||The Grand Witch Mask||Witch Nose|
|Witch Gloves||Wicked Witch Mask||Hagatha the Crone Witch Mask||Witch Half-Mask|
So far, we've looked at the more...friendly-looking witches, but now it's time to look at the real classics! We're talking about scary witch costumes, like crones and hags! Our favorite is this realistic hag costume that includes a raggedy robe and mask. But we also have masks or gloves and a nose so you can mix and match with your favorite costumes.
Like witch costumes, there are all sorts of wizard costumes. We've got costumes based on Gandalf to Harry Potter but also plenty of glittery purple costumes. Sorcerer and warlock costumes also get lumped in with the wizard theme, so we'll make sure to cover those designs as well.
Wizard Costumes for Adults
|Doctor Strange Costume||Purple Wizard Costume||Jafar Costume||Warlock Costume|
|Gandalf Costume||Dumbledore Costume||Dark Wizard||Sorcerer Costume|
Men's wizard costumes cover a great deal of territory. You've got the classic purple robes with stars and a pointy hat, or dark robes with ornate trim. These are the iconic "old wizard" costume designs, like a classic Merlin costume. We recommend getting a wig and beard to complete the look, but we'll get to that in a bit. If you're looking for a costume like this that everyone will recognize, you can't go wrong with a Dumbledore or Gandalf costume. If you'd like something a bit different, consider a Doctor Strange costume or maybe even the evil Jafar. Both have some facial hair, but it's neat and trimmed. If you'd rather avoid the beard entirely, then we suggest a sorcerer or warlock look. Either one looks fine if you're clean-shaven.
Kid Wizard Costumes
|Harry Potter Costume||Sparkly Wizard Costume||Big Face Wizard||Child Dark Wizard with Mask|
|Child and Toddler Wizard Costume||Kids' Gandalf Costume||Starry Wizard||Toddler Dark Wizard|
Now let's look at some of the kid wizard costume options! You'll find many of the same costumes from our adult selection: purple and sparkly or dark and ornate. There are Dumbledore and Gandalf costumes for kids, too. But our favorite of the boy wizard costumes is the most iconic boy wizard ever, Harry Potter! Not only do we have Harry Potter, but we have robes for all of the Hogwarts Houses!
|Wizard Hat||Wizard Wig and Beard||Nimbus 2000 Broom||Harry Potter Wand|
|Gandalf Staff||Warlock and Wizard Staff||Deluxe Gandalf Staff Replica||Gandalf Pipe Replica|
Now that you've picked out your favorite wizard robes, it's time to find the perfect accessory. If you're going as an older wizard, that means a big beard—unless, of course, you're a dude with a beard. Then you'll need a staff of some kind. The Gandalf staff is an all-around great option, even if you're not dressing up as Gandalf. Of course, Gandalf always has his pipe, like the replica above, but we'd recommend finding a less expensive option. If you're dressing as someone from the Wizarding World, then you'll absolutely need a wand. Maybe even a Quidditch broom, like the Nimbus 2000.
