How To Make A Sorceress Costume

The Sorceress is the sexy witch. She is a wild creature of raw power and inexplicable allure. They are often either the bad girl in the story or completely neutral as the magic they represent. No wonder they are so popular, both among men and women.

Dressing a Sorceress
Think sexy, long floating pieces of fabric connected with lace, and lots of exposed body parts. That?s the sorceress.

My suggestion is to start from a bikini. Then add some lace connecting the two bikini parts, cut a few long pieces of fabric and attach them to the from and back of the bikini, and a shawl. The key here is to reveal a lot of skin and cleavage.

Sorceresses can be as simple as just the dress, or they can wear more jewelry than a queen. A tiara is a common item, as well as staves, gloves, magical jewelry (particularly arm bracelets), and daggers.

Sorceresses represent the sexy part of wild magic, so make sure to use some body paint and complicated patterns. Take inspiration in Celtic patterns and use them all over your body, face, and even in the costume itself.

The sorceress can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be. It makes for a great Halloween costume for the woman who is confident of her body and who wants to inject some sexy into this spooky night.

Making a Princess Costume

If you aren?t a girl you can?t possible understand the fascination with princesses. If you are you don?t need explaining. So there is no point in trying to explain why girls want to dress as princesses for Halloween. Lets just look at how you can create this look.

Making the dress
A princess? dress is like a bride?s dress. You need to make it pop. It doesn?t need to be too complicated, it doesn?t need to be simple, but since Disney came into the scene it does need to be pink and with a wide skirt.

If you don?t have experience making clothes creating a princess dress may not be the best place to start and it is highly unlikely you have one laying around (though dresses from weddings or the vows sometimes look great), so you may want to buy this part of the costume.

Crown or Tiara
What is a princess without a tiara or a crown? Maybe a dutchess, but that?s not what every girl dreams about being, so don?t make your girl one.

To make a crown or a tiara you only need some card stock. Then you can decorate it using fake jewelry and it will look great. Alternatively you can buy one already made. Unless you already have fantasy jewelry you can use to create your own maybe that is less expensive.

A princess usually has other jewelry. Make sure it matches the tiara or crown you made for your girl (don?t put a silver bracelet with a gold tiara), but if she is going trick or treating you may not want to use real jewelry.

A popular accessory is the Disney Princess necklace which is just a black band with a diamond or other jewelry in the center. You can create your own using black fabric. Google Disney Princess and you will see what I?m talking about.

This Halloween turning your girl into a princess does not require a fairy godmother. It just requires a caring parent, some patient, and lots of creativity.

Make a Flower Costume

Flower costumes are not very common but they look adorable in infants. If you have a little kid why not dress him or her as a flower for this Halloween? Here are a few ideas on how you can make that happen.

The flower itself is what makes the costume - a sort of crown around your face. It is really easy to make: all you need is card stock in the color you want your flower to be and an elastic band to place around your face.

Cut flower petals from the card stock and glue them to the band, then place the band around your head. It works best if you have many long petals (use several layers or they will look like a wilted flower), or large petals with a wide base (in which case one layer will suffice).

Now time for the green. Wear green clothes with a green hood. Those old whole body pijamas work great for this, you just have to paint them green. Remember to wear green shoes or create a shoe cover in that color.

Your arms can also be converted into leaves. If you are making this for an infant you can cut the leaves using card stock and just sow them to the back, on the shoulder blades. For someone with longer arms leaves won?t really be practical thou.

The flowers are simple and don?t need accessories. If you want you can paint some flowers or leaves on your face. Another idea is to carry around a watering can, or some shears. I?ve also seen some flower costumes where instead of an all-body plant, from the waist down it is a pot. They look really good in an adult.

Flowers are not very popular costumes, but there is no reason why. You can get completely different costumes by changing the petals and using accessories, and since this isn?t a popular costume you will almost certainly be the only flower in the party. Why not give it a try?

Make a Ghost Costume

Ghosts are a Halloween classic. The classic ghost is a floating blanket, but over the last few years there has been an explosion in the ghost ethnicity field. Here are three different ghost costume ideas for this Halloween.

The Classic Ghost
The classic ghost costume is perhaps one of the easiest to make - all you need is a blanket or some other piece of large white fabric. Cut holes for the eyes and that?s it!

But I?m sure you want to add some personality. Tore apart the blanket in some places. Wear white gloves and shoes, and paint your face white. White colored eye lenses will do a wonderful job too.

The Scary Ghost
The scary ghost comes from the death and it still looks like a person. It is sort of a cross between a zombie and a classic ghost.

For this look you will also need a large white or light gray blanket, but instead of throwing it over your head wrap it around yourself and make a large hood to cover your head. Beneath this cape and hood combo wear old torn clothes, sprinkled with flour to simulate dust.

Now paint your face and exposed body parts a light gray or white and your eyes dark. If you want, add accessories that tell us something about who that person was in a past life: some old jewelry, lace, white hair, and an old picture work wonders.

The Comic Ghost
A final idea for a ghost costume is the comic ghost. This is the friendly, all pranks, all jokes ghost. You just take the costume of a scary ghost or traditional ghost and add some accessories: a top hat, a walking stick, a pumpkin, accessories from a clown... Your imagination is the limit here.

Although the classic is always a classic, don?t think you have to dress as the traditional ghost this Halloween. And if you do want to go with that look, remember to add some personality to it.

Make a Fairy Costume

Fairies are for girls like ninjas are for boys. Which girl never dreamed about dressing as a fairy for Halloween (or better yet, being a fairy). This season you can make that dream com true.

Making the Wings

What is a fairy without its wings? The wings spark little girls? imagination all around the globe and the best way to go is to buy ready made wings, which are really easy to find. It is possible to make wings using card board, or fabric, and wires, but it is either dangerous or ugly, so buying this part of the costume is really worth the investment.

However, you need to select your wings. Generally you have two options: pixie wings (which look like locust wings) and high fairy wings (butterfly wings). To make your costume pop you need to make sure you keep the theme in your dress and accessories, so select carefully.

Making the Dress

We will consider two types of fairies: the pixie and the high fairy.

The pixie is the devilish little fairy, that enjoys nothing more than a good joke and games. Think Tinkerbell. They wear simple and short dresses, which you can make yourself by cutting a simple piece of fabric. The skirt should not have a straight line - either diagonal or torn. Try to make the dress the same color as the wings. And remember to go creative with the shoes: pompoms, leaves, stars...

The high fairy is the nobility of the fairies. The dress is a simple princess dress, using white or light fabric, a long wide skirt, gloves, and delicate shoes. Dress yourself or your girl as if going to a ball.

Accessories to Consider

For the pixie, little toys and trinkets are great. Consider a simple headband, some nature shaped jewelery, flowers, pieces from old gadgets from around the house. The pixie is also the perfect fairy to use antennae, usually used in insect and alien costumes, and strong and bold face and body paint.

The high fairy is royalty, so a crown or tiara goes a long way. They are also the fairies with complicated jewelry, a wand, complicated patterns on their face with light colors and lots of sparkly sprinkles.

If your girl (or you) want to go as a fairy this Halloween don?t let the costume prices scare you. For a fraction of the price you can create a custom fairy look and have fun in the process.

Harry Potter Halloween Costumes for Muggles

There is a great choice of Harry Potter costumes available. A defining series of books for our generation, Harry Potter

Harry Potter Gryffindor Robe

has found a loving and dedicated audience through numerous books, movies and games, and has always been a staple of the cosplay circuit and Halloween costumes. While the last installment was back in 2009, the promise of two movies for the final installment prove that Harry Potter is still popular, and no doubt will be next year and beyond. It’s good, then, that there are so many Harry Potter costumes on offer both official and unofficial.

Harry Potter Costume Ideas

There are countless different Harry Potter Costume Ideas available from the varied and imaginative universe J.K.Rowling created, however all us Muggles tend to long to be wizard students at heart, and so the most popular are the school uniforms, specifically the Gryffindor robe. For example, the Harry Potter Deluxe Adult Robe replicates the film with long black length, red lining and the Gryffindor seal on the chest. The same is present in the children’s options, allowing a whole family to be part of the famous Hogwarts House.

If, however, you want to avoid the cliché, one way to show Hogwarts pride while also showing originality is to come dressed up as a Quidditch player. Once again the Gryffindor team is the most popular, with the distinctive long red robes with inclusive hood and front lacing, Gryffindor crest and golden racing stripes. Complete with Quidditch child’s helmet and goggles and a broom, you’re set to catch that Snitch!

For more villainous character such as the death eaters for the Dementors or even You Know Who himself (Voldemort), you should stick to dark robes. The Officially licensed Death Eater costume comes complete with tatty black robes and frightening skeletal ribs and mask for both adults and children. A black robe plus a terrifying mask, or the complete officially licensed costumes for adults and children will complete the snake-faced Voldemort, and the elaborately masked followers of Voldemort – the Death Eaters- and brilliantly shown through such costumes as the Female Death Eater Bellatrix Child Costume. You can truly bring the scary spirit of Halloween alive with these evil costumes!

Harry Potter Costume Accessories

The list of Harry Potter Accessories is almost endless, but here are a few that you might want to get your hands on this Halloween:

-Quidditch: For Quidditch fans there is the child’s Quidditch helmet, goggles, Harry Potter Quidditch Kit (which includes shin and forearm protectors), Harry Potter Broom, and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince Golden Snitch.
- Hogwarts Students: For those dressed to attend Hogwarts there are numerous magic wands available, Harry Potter Glasses, a Gryffindor tie, Gryffindor scarf, pointy wizard’s hat, lantern, and even Hermionie Granger’s wig!

Getting creative

Of course, it’s easy to also make your own costumes for Harry Potter this Halloween. A black robe and a patch of your chosen house make the school robes, and a scarf with the school colors can be made by anyone with some basic knowhow of knitting. If you choose to be other characters, such as Hagrid or the teachers, different colored robes, and accessories such as fake beards can truly give them a unique and authentic look. Experiment and see what you come up with – that’s half the fun!
