The Grand High Witch (Eva Ernst) - The Witches


I honestly don't know where to start, so I'll start with the inspiration: My sister had bought me the The Witches on DVD last Christmas because she knew how much I loved the film as a kid. It was only until my friends Abi and Starla started suggesting to each other that I should cosplay the Grand High Witch that I actually took up the idea. I loved the character because she was a high class bitch, and very vain. Plus, I've never been one for children, and Abi delighted on reminding me while dressed as her.

Admittedly, I've done the outfit in which I think is the least recognisable. But I got a chance to learn how to make a dress, and modify a blazer sewing pattern. The blazer took the longest to make, but the hardest thing was the hat ><

But for the finishing touches, I wore the necklace that my friend Kharito got me :) Because it was beautiful, gothic, and had a lovely purple gem ^^ The ring was found by my boyfriend. Out of all my reckless searching, he found one X'D

What a great idea for a costume! Hope you scared some kiddies!

Sjbonnar: Thank you ^^;; You flatter me so. Kiichan: Hehe, I would have, but this Witch is always discrete ^^ She's more the type to smile and give them chocolate with a potion on it ;)

Progress and Dates

I know Iwasn't making this costume for any special event, but I've now decided to take it to the Entertainment Media show in London that will be running from the 1st-2nd of October (I think?) By now, I've already made the dress and 3/4 of the jacket, so I'm very happy with my progress :) But just in case something goes wrong, such as, the wig doesn't arrive in time, I may take Cherri Creeper ^^ Still, happy days!
