You've seen a headless man but have you seen the witch that carries her head in a caldron? We went to the Halloween store and got a little inspiration. There was an ugly witch head in a glass ball that gave us the idea. We decided to do a headless witch Halloween costume but have her carrying her own head around in a caldron.
We bought a heavy piece of foam at the hobby store and cut in into a shape of neck and shoulders. Then we cut into the center of it and I stuck my head in it. Next came a very thin XXL turtleneck that I was able to see out of that covered the foam, a large bra and my head, making the torso and neck of the witch. Sewing a really long skirt was next.
Then the velveteen cape with lime green lining. The cape had an upper part around the neck to look dramatic of sheer material over wire. I borrowed a stick from my nephew who loves to collect walking sticks and added the witch head in the caldron. We made a belt with two poison apples on the end of the belt and a spider hanging from the stick. I did buy the witch gloves.
It took awhile finding a way to make it stand straight on my head but the two inch foam did the trick.
This Headless Bride Halloween costume is my wife Deb. We wanted to create something cool but a bit spooky. We purchased a wedding dress at the local Goodwill store then went on to basically destroying it. I took one of her old turtle neck shirts, put a roll of nylon covered paper towels in the neck and proceeded to fill the shirt with expanding foam.
This took several days because the foam won't dry if it gets to thick. After we had the upper body built and fitted in the dress we made it comfortable to wear. We had to use 2 small rods to hold the upper body close to hers. Basically the foam went from the shoulders of the wedding dress to Debs low back.
After everything fit we cut a hole for debs head and arranged the arms to make them look like they were holding her head. It was held in place with ace bandages. Some fake blood, a bunch of makeup and a few black roses. We had the finished product just as envisioned.

It all began by surfing the web and seeing someone else with the same Headless Halloween costume idea from a few years ago. I thought to myself I should try to do that so I did and this is what I came up with.
This costume has been in the works since August. My mother and my boyfriend both helped me make it. I bought the bust/mannequin off of Craigslist. I bought the main dress on eBay along with the wig, but the long part of the dress was made by my mother.
The hands are made by stuffing a pair of gloves and sewing them to the arms of the dress. The bust is held up by a child rolling backpack. My boyfriend drilled holes in the bust and we fit the backpack with metal poles to make it more stable. I hope you enjoy the picture as much as I enjoyed wearing the costume.
We used a large piece of Styrofoam, cut a hole out of the center, added a tablecloth from the dollar store with hot glue, a plastic plate in which we cut a hole for his head. We added empty boxes of candy, glasses, bugs, worms this costume went over so well, he was also asked to participate in the haunted house at our campground, but he refused cause he was to scared!!
We also added some rope on the underneath of the table so that my son could hold on to it! He took first place for his Headless Buffet Table Halloween costume, again thanks to your site and everyone's great ideas!
