Halloween gives you the opportunity to dress up like any TV show, book, or movie character you want. You can choose a Halloween costume from a show like Game of Thrones character or a movie like Star Wars. There are an unlimited amount of options. But why not go back in time and pick from a classic film? It's easy to dress up like a Wizard of Oz character for Halloween. Costumes from that film will always be timeless, iconic, and cool, and you also don't have to buy a pre-made costume if you don't want to. It's super easy to DIY Dorothy and her friends. You can mostly use items in your closet that you already own and then add some face paint.
Whether you want to do a solo costume and be Dorothy or Glinda in all their glory, or you want to coordinate a group costume to look like the entire yellow brick road gang (including the yellow road itself), there's a Wizard of Oz costume on this list for everyone. It will help you find the perfect outfit that doesn't break the bank and looks awesome no matter who is rocking it come October 31.
Wicked Witch of the East
The Wicked Witch of the East dies really early in the film, but her costume would be a unique one to contrast all the Wicked Witch of the Wests out there. You need striped socks, ruby slippers, and a cardboard house painted brown. Just cut some holes in it and wear it as a top.
It's super easy to recreate a Dorothy costume at home without having to purchase one at the store. All you'll need to do is braid your hair, add some blue ribbons, and layer a white top with a gingham dress to look just like the girl that got caught in a Kansas tornado. Don't forget the sparkly red heels!
The Tin Man
Recreating the Tin Man is no small feat. You can use cardboard to build your Tin Man (or woman) costume before painting it with silver paint. If you'd rather skip building the costume, you can dye clothes that you no longer care about with silver dye. Complete the look by painting your face with silver face paint.
