Halloween, Part VI: Witch

Like the ghost, the witch is a Halloween staple.  And not one that I've ever really understood.  But it's an easy costume to create.  Carrying forward the Wizard of Oz theme, the witch costume can be used to create either the Wicked Witch of the West (named Elphaba in the book and musical, Wicked) or the Wicked Witch of the East (named Nessarose in the book and musical).  The sole difference being the tights and shoes.  I was pushing my luck during this photo shoot so no striped tights and ruby slippers.

I don't think she'll ever be thought of as wicked.

The dress is, again, a black onesie (a turtleneck this time) with a simple rectangle attached.

A note about the hat.  It's actually an adult fascinator from Walmart.  I think it's perfectly sized for a baby though.  I attached a clip to the inside and then clipped it to a black headband that we already had.
