Sexy Witch Costumes
In Halloween parties, it is a given that Princesses, queens and all things sweet and nice will be present.

Sexy witches costumes for women can rival even the hottest princess at the party.
The image of witches come in many forms so do not limit your ideas of witches on simply just the long-haired lady in a black dress that rides on a broom. Popular TV shows have reinvented witches and turned them into one of our modern-day magical humans. An example is the show Charmed where the witches are pretty hot! The resurgence of witches into pop culture is slowly making waves. They are powerful and fiercely strong female heroines – plus they do magic! What can be more exciting than that?
Sorcery and all that comes with it can be a fun peg for this year’s festivities. It is, after all, magical. You can make the stereotypical scary witch costume and turn it into a sexy witch costume with just a flick of a wand.
Present in cultures across the world, witchcraft and sorcery have held their place in existence for thousands of years dating back to the ancient Egyptians. The belief that people had a concept of magic and using this magic against another person’s will was alarming. Witchcraft was widely misunderstood and muddled with science that people didn’t believe in hundreds of years ago. In 17th century Europe, physicians and doctors were accused of witchcraft for turning to apothecary medicine for treating patients. Today, we see witchcraft take form in practices such as spiritual healing or shamanism.
There are many eras of witchcraft and sorcery that you can pull from to create costumes witches embodied. In case you need a little help figuring out which witch you want to be, we’ve come up with a few witch costume ideas.

The Red Witch– Critically-acclaimed series, the Game of Thrones, had a seriously brazen witch who could predict the future ad cast spells. Mix black and red into your long body hugging dress.

Be Bewitching: Tips to balance sexy and gloom
Black, capes and pointy hats is a np-fail formula if you decide to purchase a witch costume for yourself. But beyond that, there are plenty more aesthetics that you can go for that has the witch motif. From gothic to “Hermoine Granger”, there are countless ideas. You just have to dig deep!
Don’t forget to show a little skin if you plan to go on a “witch-hunt” for your next rendezvous. Nevertheless, whatever witch costume style you go for, do not neglect looking hot and fiercely ravishing. How to do that? Well, for starters, makeup plays an important role if you want to be enchanting. No matter how wicked your costume looks, if you have a weak makeup game, it wouldn’t really be much convincing. So, opt for smoky looks, dark and heavy eyeliners unless you are opting for the white witch style which requires more pastel and dewy makeup. Find a pair of glitter eyelashes or extra-long eyelashes for a bewitching look.
The sexy witch knows how to put a man under her spell. Create a bewitching adult costume with a waist cincher that pulls tight around the waist and accentuates the hips. Create a defining neckline and high bosom by finding a low-cut dress costume paired with a push-up bra and neck choker. If you want to accentuate your legs, wear a black sequin strapless mini dress with leather leg garter. These witches know their sex appeal, and they know to use it!
For your hair, curls are definitely on top of the list. Witches aren’t often seen with stick-straight ironed hair. They don’t have the time in between all that plotting and scheming! But if you are going for an evil queen or anything regal, you may opt for a sleek updo.
Your accessories can be chokers and rhinestone necklaces. If you want to stay on the costume-y side, hooded capes, pointed witch hats and maybe even carry around a light broomstick if it will not pull your weight down.
Don’t forget those legs. As you can remember from the Wizard of Oz when the witch was crushed by the house, those two legs with striped stockings were sticking out. Witches love hosiery, so be sure to add a sexy pair of witch costume hosiery to your look. If you’re opting for a sexy witch dress that’s very short, go with a pair of fishnet pantyhose that add some drama to your look. If you want a more classic and festive witch halloween costume, get a pair of orange/black striped stockings or purple/black striped thigh high stockings.
Witches are also princesses with a little more fire, a little more spell-binding and a little more naughty!
