Hocus Pocus Witches

Remember the witches in the comedy movie, Hocus Pocus released in 1993?  I’ve watched this movie so many times around Halloween every year.  Now, it’s not scary.  It is a delightful, funny rendition about three playful witches produced by Touchstone Pictures.  Winifred is the bossy eldest sister causing comical fights between them.  Of course, Sarah is boy crazy.  The story is about the sisters being hanged for a murder in 1693 in Salem.  As they promise to return to Salem, a virgin lights a candle and sends them forward 300 years.  Surprised indeed the witches were.  Witches meet a young man with their 8 year old sister, Dani during trick or treating.  All three sisters set out to show the young man that witches are real.  The comical experience begins.

The three witches Winifred, Mary, and Sarah Sanderson were played by Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and of all people, Sarah Jessica Parker (HBO series: Sex and the City).  Watch the trailer below:

Witches spell book, cackling screeching, and a talking black cat name Binx are involved in the goofy, spooky scenes.  Let’s not forget, Bette Midler’s song, “I Put a Spell On You.  Wish there was a sequel; however, Tina Frey, writer is not creating a sequel for these mischievous witches.  Who knows….the fans may make it happen.

 Beautiful Witch Costume Idea

If you need a Halloween comedy costume comedy for a witch, why not become one of the Sanderson Sisters.  Instead of a black dreary, toothless witch, wear a Gothic dress with green, purple, yellow, and red colors with sequins, tassels, and fringe.  Start now with your witch costume.  It will take a little time to put some pizzazz on your outfit.
