What’s Halloween without a witch?

Whether it’s the green faced cackler with a wart on the tip of her nose or the kind you find at Hogwarts, you can’t go through Halloween without a little witchy business.

I like to think I’d be an uber modern witch with my purple hair, strong brow game and suspender tights. Flying to my university classes and casting spells to extend homework deadlines and my iPhone battery life. Obviously the best use of my power. Hee-hee-heeee.

The 3rd costume of Halloweek is a haunted southern belle.

Typically, this could be considered a ‘sexy’ costume, but I’ve never be one to use Halloween as an excuse to be sexy, that’s what the other 364 days of the year are for. Besides, there’s nothing I love more than turning a character into a ‘dead’ or ‘zombie’ version because how often do sunken eyes, pale lips and a corset make sense?

Another social media recommendation: a bat.

The costume inspiration came from one of my VFW outfits when people kept saying I looked like a bat, so I reused the skirt to make mighty wings and added dripping fangs because of course I’m an evil Halloween bat. This is an easy costume to make at home, all you need to add is (fake) blood to a drapey black canvas.

Jessica Luxe - Halloween-9

the banshee

When I asked what costumes my readers wanted to see, the suggestion of the banshee appeared, and with my Irish heritage, it seemed only fitting to take on the character.

The banshee is a female spirit in Irish mythology, usually seen as an omen of death and a messenger from the underworld. In legend, a banshee wails nearby when someone is about to die. There are Irish families who are believed to have banshees attached to them, and whose cries herald the death of a member of that family.

Traditionally, the banshee is seen with long blonde hair, and draping white clothes; mouth permanently askew as she emits a long and painful scream to torture the souls of the living.
