Ah the classic Witch! We know she’s been around forever but isn’t that what makes her so great? Growing up in the 80’s there was no shortage of black bag witches at Halloween! Every person wore a black bag with pride and went out trick or treating for apples and nuts.
But nowadays Witches have stepped up their game! From the traditional Wizard of Oz wicked witch to the classic Hocus Pocus Sanderson Witch to pagan witches, satanic witches, gothic witches and even sexy witches!
They have not lost their magic and we can see that Witches will be making a huge comeback for Halloween 2022. But the question is…
Are you as Wicked Witch?
Always seen yourself as a bit of a Wicked Witch from the North? Flying around on your broom with your pointy hat, large nose, green hue & monkey friends? Well you my friend are a Wicked Witch!
It’s all about the make up with this witch so you can decide how far you want to go with face paint and prosthetics.
We love the idea of creating a gnarly witches nose so you could either apply a prosthetic nose using a large witch nose prosthetic with some spirit gum or use this Kryolan nose putty to add some bumps on the bridge of your nose or create length at the end. If using the nose putty always use a sealer like this Kryolan Sealer to seal the putty before applying make up or face paint.
To create that green contoured face we would start with working off a few different shades of greens and yellows. This Cameleon Witch palette will work perfectly for you:
What about a Hocus Pocus Witch?
Do you love to get in character when you dress up? Are you always up for a laugh? If you think of yourself as a comedy Witch, Well fancy that!
You are a Hocus Pocus Witch!
2022 sees Hocus Pocus back on the big screens this Sep 30th. It’s been 30 years since the first movie was released and it is still one of our favourites!
Depending on which Sanderson sister you choose to be, we would recommend either the heart wig, the Medieval queen wig or the 60’s beehive wig to start along with one of these medieval maid dresses in green or wine. Accessorise with a little bit of creativity and Hocus Pocus here we come!
Maybe you’re a Pagan Witch!
Do you worship the elements and nature? Is it all coming from a good place with maybe the odd sacrifice thrown in? Can you sometimes go to the dark side?
Yep, you are a Pagan Witch!

Or the worst of the lot: A Satanic Witch

It’s pretty obvious that you are a Sexy Witch!
There will always be a sexy character at Halloween… and why not! If you’re the type that wants to show off your best assets, we say ‘GO FOR IT!’
