Hollywood Witches

Since I can no longer pull off the princess costume, when I dress up for Halloween it's usually as a witch. I find it a simple costume to make, a slinky black dress and a witches hat is all you really need. One year I was quite ambitious and created a beautiful sequin encrusted tiered dress (yes, I stitched all the sequins on by hand) and with my husband in tow as my Munchkin, went to a party as Glinda from Wicked.  When you do a couples costume you are almost forced to stand next to one another the entire night.  Even so, we had to explain our costumes.  It got a bit tiring having to repeat over and over that my husband, who was dressed in striped socks, a bow tie and cap, green pants and carrying a large sucker, was part of the Lollipop Guild!  Glinda is still my favorite witch, but here are some other Hollywood Witches worth re-creating this Halloween.
