Costume Closet: The Sanderson Sister of Salem

The witching hour and All Hallows' Eve will soon be upon us, and it's time to bring three iconic Halloween costume looks back from the dead. Coming from one of the best witch movies of all time, Hocus Pocus, no three witches touched our hearts quite like the Sanderson Sister of Salem: Winifred, Mary, and Sarah. But WITCH of the three best fits the personality of your sweet spellcaster?


Girls Hocus Pocus Winifred Sanderson Inspired Costume

Wise Winifred

Winifred leads her sisters in the ways of witchcraft and wickedness, hunting the children of Salem. With her trusty book of spells, she can think her way out of most situations. This bewitching purple and green full-length tutu dress will help your sweet girl look the part. The green bodice mimics a purple corset with golden satin lacing at the center, and the tulle shoulders will make her look enchanting. The layering of the tulle creates a lovely full two-toned skirt that stops at the ankles to show off her shoes. Complete this girl's costume with magical pentagram necklace, curly red wig, and that signature ultra-pouty lip makeup. Winifred proves that wicked witches have way more fun!

Mindful Marry

Look out! This witch can smell children from a mile away--unless the smell of something sweeter, like candy, hits her nose first. If Winifred is the head of the Sanderson Sisters of Hocus Pocus, then Mary is definitely the heart! Always there to support her sisters and sniff out all the little children to work their magic on. Dress your little witch up to match this iconic character this All Hallows' Eve with a puff-sleeve full-length tutu dress. Vibrant, delicate, and simply enchanting, it also features an adorable apron. We recommend a three-hoop petticoat for extra volume in the skirt and lots of twirls throughout the night. Selling the hair is a big part of the illusion, so a long braided extension wrapped upward may be the best way to achieve the hair height. And don't forget those animated faces for those cute Halloween pictures. She'll be sure to sniff out tons of candy if she doesn't get to the children first! 


Mia Belle Girls Hocus Pocus Sarah Sanderson Inspired Costume

Sassy Sarah

This witch is here to give you sass mixed with a little bit of silly. Sweet Sarah Sanderson loves to lure victims in with her alluring voice and enchanting spells. Sound like anyone you know, mommy? If so, this adorable pink bodice with colorful full-length purple tutu dress is just right for your trick-or-treater. The colors are so much fun with an interesting hi-lo silhouette formed in the purple tulle. Meanwhile, the orange tulle down the center of the skirt stands out gorgeously, just like your little girl. Throw some curly extensions to simulate Sarah's long locks and add a broom stick so she can fly over the town and serenade the people below. Will the children of Salem be ensnared this All Hallows' Eve, or will she settle for their candy instead?



So which witch will it be? Depending on your little girl's Halloween plans, why not all three? These sweet girl's costumes would make for supercute personal photoshoots, Tik Tok videos, multiple parties or trick-or-treat events, and for putting on shows for family and friends. It seems whether she's wise, mindful, or sassy simply depends on which way the cauldron bubbles. Which of the Hocus Pocus Sanderson Sisters do you think best fits your precious pumpkin?
