Bewitched Costumes

Inspired by Beautiful Witches
Bewitched costumes are based on the most beautiful witch to grace primetime television, Samantha Stephens. Beautiful witches were nothing new in 1964. After all, L. Frank Baum had introduced Glinda, the Good Witch more than six decades earlier in his widely translated children’s story, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. In the 1939 film based on Baum’s novel, Billie Burke embraced the role of Glinda. The original good witch floated down in a sparkly pink bubble to welcome Dorothy to Oz. In 1942, silver screen siren Veronica Lake delighted audiences in the comedy, I Married a Witch. Blonde bombshell Kim Novak cast a spell on Jimmy Stewart in Bell, Book and Candle a few years later in 1958.

A television series inspired by these films featured the lovely and appealing Elizabeth Montgomery. Bewitched introduced audiences to a supernatural (and suburban) sensation named Sam. A chance encounter prompted Agnes Moorehead to reconsider the role of Endora. The veteran actress had originally turned down the demanding schedule of a television series. However, she was charmed by Elizabeth Montgomery when they met casually in a Los Angeles department store. Can you imagine any other actress playing Endora?

Bewitched Costumes

Agnes Moorehead’s contract limited the number of episodes she would appear in each season. Even so, Endora was present often enough to annoy her mortal son-in-law. Darrin was played in the earlier seasons by Dick York and later by Dick Sargent. Endora refused to use Darrin’s name, alternatively calling him “What’s-his-name,” “Darwin,” “Derwood,” and “Dum-Dum,” all much to his annoyance. In fact, Endora referred to him as “Darrin” only 8 times during the entire series run of 254 episodes.

Bewitched (1964-1972)

Bewitched was on the air for eight years, and had the distinction of being the longest running of the fantasy situation comedies that dominated primetime television in the sixties. Other favorites included The Addams Family, I Dream of Jeannie, The Munsters, and Mister Ed.

Bewitched was the last survivor of the fantasy sitcom genre when it left the air in 1972. Thanks to syndication, DVD releases of all eight seasons, and a feature film remake in 2005, Bewitched remains popular with viewers. Not surprisingly, beautiful witches are represented in respectable numbers every Halloween. Bewitched costumes are easy, fun, and flattering to all body types.

Bewitched Costumes – Bewitching Capes

Choose An Elegant and Flattering Witch Costume
All of the witches on the series wore beautiful, flowing capes—Samantha, Endora, Aunt Clara, and Esmeralda. Even Samantha’s mischievous cousin Serena (also played by Elizabeth Montgomery) looked divine in black. Black capes are a popular Halloween staple, useful for witch, vampire, or historic costumes for years to come.
