Wizard Of Oz
There are lots of options for anyone who wants to wear Wizard of Oz costumes for Halloween or a party. All of the main characters are represented, from Dorothy and her companions to the Witch and her minions. There are costumes for kids and adults, so everyone can dress in this theme. There are even costumes for characters in the recent Wicked movie.
The Wizard of Oz is a classic and the characters and their looks have become part of popular culture. The main character from the 75 year old movie is Dorothy, a young girl from Kansas who finds herself whisked away to the strange world of Oz. There, the Good Witch Glinda tells her to go to find the Wizard in the Emerald City, who will help her get home. Along the way she meets the Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Cowardly Lion. Together they must battle the Wicked Witch of the West and her minions.
There are Dorothy costumes for girls of all ages. She has an unmistakable look, so all it takes is the blue and white dress, a bow for the hair, and a pair of red shoes. Don't forget Toto, though. He comes in a basket. Boys and men will get to dress up as any of Dorothy's friends or Glinda. Playing villains can be fun, and it's easy to dress as the Wicked Witch, a flying monkey, or one of Witch's guard. Any one of these characters is fun and recognizable alone, but the Wizard of Oz lends itself well to group costumes. A whole family or a group of friends can each pick a role and go to a party as an ensemble.
