Coolest White Witch from Narnia Costume

I made this costume for my 7 year old daughter. I made the dress from a bed sheet, blue spray paint and 1 yard of sheer fabric torn in strips and sewn on to the dress. The fur wrap was a stuffed polar bear my older daughter had for a few years. We gutted the poor fella and voila a robe fit for a queen (or witch).

Her head piece, as you can see by the Halloween photos, was plastic icicles that I hot glued to a dress up crown my daughter already had. I ordered Alpaca wool from eBay and I hot glued it to pipe cleaners for the dreads. I then wound the alpaca in with her real hair and entwined it in the icicles.

The make up kit was a drugstore ice vampire kit I got at Walgreen’s. It was a little time consuming and took patience on the part of myself and my daughter but it was worth it in the end. She looked incredible. It also doesn’t hurt if your child believes they actually become the character.

We had a blast – hope you enjoy these Halloween photos!

Total Spent: $20

  5. Wow, this is amazing! I was looking for a Halloween costume. I don’t want to buy one because they all look cheap and trashy (I’m in my 20’s); I want to make one myself.

    Your daughter’s costume is so creative. I’m inspired. Thank you!

  6. This costume looks fantastic! I need to recreate something for me asap for a Christmas fancy dress party, wish I could do it as good as this but I know I won’t be able to!

  7. Someone, please let me know how to do this in more detail. My daughter really wants to be this! Thanks!!!

  8. Hey this is awesome! I really like the polar bear addition. Do you remember/know where I can get one like it?

  9. My daughter loved it and wanted to be like her. We used my husbands old white (off white) bath rope for the cape/coat. She looked amazing and every one loved it! I used silver food coloring spray to create an icy feel to her hair. And white make-up gave her face an icy look.

  10. You are absolutely amazing!!! This costume is so creative and brilliant! Your daughter is one lucky girl to have a mommy like you!! Way to go!!!

  11. Could someone advise about the alpaca wool? I am not sure how much to buy, and how I would weave this into my daughters long hair. Halloween dance at school is this Friday. I got the icicles in the Christmas section at KMart today.

  12. About to make the same costume for my daughter who is 10. Its book week and she has chosen the white witch. Thanks for tips and ideas. I’m about to start. Keep u posted with final outfit

  13. We are putting on a stage performance of Narnia and was looking for white witch ideas! These were great!!! Where did you find the icicles? I am having a hard time finding large ones. May end up making them.


  14. Hi there! I LOVE this costume and am glad I came across yours because it is awesome! I really want to try to recreate. For the hair, do you think it’s possible to do it without weaving it into your own hair and putting it on some type of headband or piece? That seems like the hardes part to me and I won’t have anyone to help me. AWESOME costume! Love it!
