Costume Idea: Season of the Witch

Oh yes, it is truly the season of the witch, and not only because it’s Halloween.

Witchcraft has become a thing. There are even Christian witches now. A movement of African American Millennial witches is growing. You can find more than 11,000 starter witch kits on Etsy, ranging in price from $6 to $600.

We have come a long way from Salem, baby.

So, Halloween.

Did you know that 75% of people in their young 20s dress up for Halloween? And that 55% of people in their 40s and 50s do? That’s more people than vote in Presidential elections!

If you are drawn to a witch costume, I think you are ready to embrace fantasy and wish fulfillment for a night. Why not choose to be little magical?

After all, your 21st century witch is not evil and hideous. She’s about confidently owning her power, wisdom and creativity, embracing the mystery and unknown, setting intentions and manifesting.

I picked out this costume for you. It’s pretty, it’s comfortable, and it’s flattering (love those vertical lines!). It comes in a lot of sizes, including plus sizes. It got great reviews on Amazon, and it’s affordable (between $30 and $40). Make it your own, maybe by adding your personal touches to your hat, or adding a fun necklace.

You go, you witch, you!
