Grits and Gris-gris
Your little shop of magic is far off the tourist track. You're not toting your "voodoo" wares in the French Quarter where people just might pick up the wrong knick knack and end up making the acquaintance of a lost spirit who decides to follow them home. No, people have to seek out your services. They travel the backroads of the Bayou in order to find your little house on tall stilts in the swampy landscape. But once they're there, you provide your hard traveling visitors with the real deal. Your carefully portioned potions help a heartbroken woman escape the shadow of her ex. You have preserved the art of protective gris-gris and powerful good vibe talismans. The best part? After you feed their spirit, your customers can be sure you've got some delicious southern food sizzling on the stove. Now, that's what we call full service!
This gorgeous, layered look might just convince you that you actually could stir up some magic. The coat has a cropped center, showing off the snakeskin patterned vest underneath. You'll also get the multi-colored sash ties that are layered under the bone and skull belt. A monkey hand necklace will remind folks of your other-worldly knowledge and the whole costume is polished off with the wrapped top hat.
Leveling with Laveau
If you're intrigued by the mystique of Voodoo than you've probably heard of Marie Laveau's legacy. Her customers in New Orleans ranged from the well to do upper crust to the desperate and enslaved people looking to fight their way out. People still talk about her power and influence over a hundred years after her death, leaving offerings at her grave. So this Halloween cast aside that basic witch look and get on a whole new level with this Voodoo look. Now, how about some potion number 9?
My husband and I hosted a Halloween costume party last year and this was mine. I won 1st place with this costume! The fit was perfect only alteration I made was the top that comes with it I had to tie up in the back so it didn't hang so low other than that everything was perfect! A few of the neighbors didn't even know who I was until later in the evening. Great fun and great costume! Would highly recommend!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
The costume is just like it looks. it did run small but it still fit. The jacket is everything. you need your own pants and boots but those are easy to find. Now I have to figure out how to top that this year. I couldn't upload my picture for some reason.
For what you get with this costume (accessories), the price is great. The top hat you must assemble but it works. There’s also a stretch band on the inside to keep it on your head. The only disappointment is that in runs very small even after I measured for correct sizing (L/XL). I was hoping for larger sizes soon as I needed it for Mardi Gras in New Orleans but doesn’t look like it will be in stock quick enough.
