The Wizard of Oz is one movie that just about everyone I know has seen at some point in their lives. It’s definitely one of my favorites and my children love it as well! Who hasn’t heard of Dorothy, Toto and the good witch Glinda? The original film came out in 1939 with Judy Garland playing the part of Dorothy and it’s still as popular today as it was when it was released 71 years ago!
Halloween is always a fun time to portray the cast of The Wizard of Oz. I’ve seen many Dorothy’s wearing their sequined ruby slippers ringing our doorbell on Halloween night. The characters in the movie are famous all on their own; Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man, the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch are all hugely popular during the Halloween season. Even the Flying Monkey costumes are a hit!
This year for 2010 there’s a new twist on this old classic when it comes to Halloween costumes. The Wicked of Oz Mistress Dorothy costume is so cool! It takes the innocent sweet Dorothy to a whole new level, just in time for this sinister holiday. It’s her evil twin dressed in leather of course!
If you wanted to make it a group costume theme, you’ll find the Wicked of Oz Scarecrow (carrying a scythe) and the Wicked of Oz Lion, who is not cowardly at all! You’ll be the talk of the party this year with these great costumes!
