White Witch costume and chariot from Narnia's The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe...

In the 2005 movie adaptation of C.S. Lewis' classic children's fantasy The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Tilda Swinton plays the evil White Witch, 'Jadis'.

One of the costumes she wore in the film and the chariot she rode in the climactic battle scenes of the movie were part of The American Film Institute Showcase of infamous villain costumes at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida on September 22, 2010.

Isis Mussenden was responsible for designing this amazing costume for the White Witch.

This outfit of chainmail and animal fur is her warrior battle garb and is much harder and less feminine than the other looks she sports earlier in the movie.

I think this wonderful costume would make a fierce Halloween outfit if you're looking for inspiration.

Also on display at Disney's Hollywood Studios within the Journey into Narnia: Prince Caspian theme park attraction was the wand prop used by the White Witch in the second movie, as she attempts to resurrect herself.
