The best Halloween costume ideas come from movies, and the 1993 Hocus Pocus movie gave us a selection of them. The Sanderson sisters make a comeback in Salem, 300 years after getting hanged. They are back with a vengeance, and their wrath is against all of Salem’s children. While their intentions are not the best, to say the least, the three witches give us some excellent Hocus Pocus costumes ideas.
Hocus Pocus Winifred Sanderson Costume
The Sanderson sisters lure Emily Binx to their cottage in 1693 and cast a spell to absorb her youth to regain their own. Emily’s brother Thackery confronts the witches, and they transform him into a black cat. On October 31st, Winifred and her two sisters are captured by the residents of Salem. The witches are hanged, but Winifred’s spellbook casts a spell to have the Sanderson sisters resurrected. It happens 300 years later, during All Hallows Eve, and a full moon.
On October 31st of 1993, Max Dennison, his sister Dani, and parents move to Salem. When exploring the town together with his sister, they meet Allison whose family manages the Sanderson cottage as a museum. Max and Dani go to the museum and come across the Black Flame Candle. Max lights it up, which then resurrects the Sanderson witches.
Winifred’s signature dark green and purple velvet gown with gold accents is a beautiful Halloween outfit choice. With this dress, you will turn heads, and bring the Hocus Pocus magic back to life. To capture the true essence of this look, pair it with an urban hued wig and cape.
Hocus Pocus Mary Sanderson Costume
After getting resurrected, the witches continue their mission to suck the soul of every child in Salem. Thackery, who also got cursed to live as an immortal cat, tells Max to steal Winifred’s spellbook. The witches are in hot pursuit of Max, Allison, and his sister Dani. The sisters vow to start by sucking Dani’s soul. Mary is the middle Sanderson sister and she an enhanced sense of smell. She is able to track down the children all the way across town.
Mary offers a spellbinding costume choice as well. Her signature look features a brown and orange dress with a brown lace-up bodice. Her dress also features gold tone hoop detailing at the bottom of her vest and an apron that rests on the layered handkerchief skirt.
Top off the look with a bewitchingly curly wig and boots.
Hocus Pocus Sarah Sanderson Costume
Sarah Jessica Parker played the youngest Sanderson sister Sarah. She has a siren-like voice that mesmerizes the children of Salem and lures them to the Sanderson cottage. However, Max and Allison are able to trick the witches to save Dani who had been captured and the town of Salem as well.
Sarah’s signature look is equally as captivating, featuring a lace-up bodice paired with a lustrous layered skirt in contrasting hues. Go the extra mile by accessorizing the look with a pair of boots and a blonde wig.
With any of these Hocus Pocus costumes, you are sure to cast an entrancing spell this Halloween.
