Halloween: Witch costume

Witches have historically been associated with monstrous magic, sinister spells and evil enchantments, which makes them a great choice for this week’s Halloween costume guide. However, thanks to Hermione Granger and others from Harry Potter perceptions have changed, meaning you can go traditional with Bellatrix and the Wicked Witch of the West, or go light with Sabrina and Molly Weasley. Which witch will you be?
