Voodoo Halloween Costumes
Hollywood voodoo has always made for fantastic Halloween fodder.

Voodoo Priestess Costumes
If you’re looking for a costume that’s powerful, alluring, and dignified all at once, then the Voodoo priestess is a great character to turn to. Throughout history, the voodoo priestess was a woman that people could turn to with all sorts of problems, from straying lovers to physical ailments. And often, the voodoo practitioner would be able to do more good than a regular doctor. The fact that they healed with tonics blended from medicinal herbs while doctors were still doling out pills that contained lead and arsenic might have had something to do with it. So did their special insight into the secrets of their community. And of course, their supernatural voodoo powers didn't hurt either.
When you're choosing a voodoo witch doctor costume, keep this power in mind. Project the confidence of someone with generations of learning and is ready to take on whatever comes her way!
Female Witch Doctor Costume
Some of the most famous voodoo practitioners in the world were women, which gives dressing up as a voodoo priestess and extra charge of power. And who doesn’t enjoy a side of power with their Halloween costume? You have a lot of choices when you’re picking out your voodoo look. For instance, while the Marie Laveau costume might be a history buff's first choice, the voodoo skeleton costume featuring a sleek jumpsuit is unique and sexy. Scroll through all the options to find out which costume works best for you!

Adult Voodoo Doll Costumes
Oh, Voodoo dolls, they're so misunderstood. We think of them as a way to get revenge on an unsuspecting victim, but they were traditionally used for healing. If someone has regular knee pain, a voodoo doll will be made of them and the witch doctor will try and transfer the pain from the person to the doll.
However, we know that the story of the voodoo doll is a lot more fun for people if they see it as a way to get at someone from far away, so we can roll with that. Dressing up in one of these voodoo costumes will help you get in touch with that Hollywood version of voodoo that we’ve been enamored with for decades.

While the model featured has her hair curled, dolly style, we think this costume looks great with messy pigtails as well!
Men's Voodoo Costume
When it comes to men’s voodoo doll costumes, there’s one option that stands out from the rest. The adult burlap voodoo doll costume works for men and women. It makes an excellent pick for those who want to be goofy with a spooky theme. As it's a warm costume, so it works great for outdoor events in a colder climate.
