Halloween fancy dress is all about stories and fun and that’s exactly why you should dress up as a witch this year!

A Brief History Of The Witch

As with any folklore legend it’s impossible to say when the concept of the witch was created. However, one of the most well known medieval treatises about witches was published in 1486 and known as the Malleus Maleficarum, which means “The Hammer of Witches” in Latin. This book described witches and gave instruction on how to identify and prosecute witches.
Various regions all over the world describe witches as different things. Some cultures fear witches, claiming that they made deals with demons or that they are servants of the devil and condemn them as heretics. There were many witch trials throughout history, but one of the most well known is referred to as the Salem Witch Trials, which convicted many people of witchcraft in a short amount of time.

Different regions of the world had different laws regarding witchcraft. Today most countries have abolished all of their witchcraft laws; the last woman to be imprisoned under the British Witchcraft Act was Helen Duncan, in 1944.

Witches In Pop Culture

The dark arts of witchcraft have been feared for centuries, but they have also been enjoyed in entertainment, such as the three sisters in Shakespeare’s Macbeth/Scottish Play.
There are many variations of the witch, such as those within J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter. In this universe we met many powerful witches such as Hermione Granger and Bellatrix Lestrange. In television, Joss Whedon’s much loved Buffy The Vampire Slayer presented us with one of Alyson Hannigan’s most memorable characters, Willow Rosenberg.

With so many different types of witch to dress as, the possibilities are endless. Go for the classic green face and black hat look similar to the Wicked Witch of The West. Or perhaps a more modern approach and opt for various colours and appear more elegant than sinister.
