Throughout history, witches (as they became known) kind of got a bad rap. These women typically were healers that understood herbs and natural remedies very well and utilized their craft to aid sick and otherwise afflicted people during their time of need. Sadly, what once was an aid to society, soon became something that many came to fear and were told was actually black magic and sorcery.
The myths surrounding witches have been perpetuated through many generations. Today we associate witches with ugliness largely because of ancient evil rumors that evil is ugly; thus, witches must be ugly, too.
Even with all the folklore surrounding witches and witchcraft, the witch is still a Halloween costume favorite and one of the dominant symbols that we associate with this spooky dress up holiday.
If you are going to be creating a witch character for Halloween you will need to assemble some of many witch accessories and supplies. Shoes, wigs, hats, make-up kits, prosthetics, hosiery, creepy fingers and cauldrons are just a few examples from the great selection of items we have to complete your most bewitching look.
