Wizard Of Oz Costume Ideas

We're off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of Oz... There are only few movies that can be labeled as legendary, and the Wizard of Oz is certainly one of them. This masterpiece has several unforgettable characters loved by people of all ages.

• Dorthey

The main character in the story is Dorothy - she can be easily recognized by her blue gingham style jumper worn over a white blouse with short sleeves. She has braided pigtails and holds a hand basket. If you don't have the necessary length for the hair, you can buy a wig.

Remember that Dorothy is accompanied by her faithful dog Toto. If you have a small dog, you can bring it with you otherwise you can get a toy dog. Complete your outfit with a pair of red shoes.

• The Scarecrow

Another popular character in Oz is the scarecrow. For this costume you'll need to find a forest green shirt and brown pants. Be sure to stuff your shirt and pants with straw. Paint your mouth, nose, ears blue to represent your face. (Be sure to use appropriate Halloween face paint only!) Finally wear an old pointed hat to complete the look.

• The Tinman

Do you remember the Tin Man? Of course you do. This is one of the three characters that accompany Dorothy in Oz. Tin Man is a male character, but female of all ages should feel free to wear this costume.

Tin Man is the character with the most specific outfit. The easiest way to become a Tin Man is to find a full body suit in silver color. The only details that must be modified is the use of a special funnel hat and the ax in hand.

• The Crowley Lion

The lion costume is suitable for children and teens that are naturally fun and have an acting talent. In order to make a costume like this, you will need brown sweatpants and hoodie. In addition, you can use a curly wig or even fur pieces if possible.

You don't need furry slippers or face paint, but if you can find these items you will make the costume look even more attractive and realistic. Finally, as with any Halloween makeover, be sure you use only approved Halloween face and body paint and read the instructions thoroughly before applying to your skin.
