Screen-worn Hocus Pocus film costumes on display...

I've been doing this blogging thing for over eleven years now, and even though technology, search engines and social media platforms have moved on, one thing has remained constant, Disney fans love for the Hocus Pocus movie costumes that I posted way back in August 2011 from the second D23 Expo. Fortunately at this year's convention, the three spellbinding costumes worn by Kathy Najimy, Bette Midler and Sarah Jessica Parker were once again on display as part of the fabulous Walt Disney Archives Heroes & Villains exhibit. These outfits were worn by the 'Sanderson Sisters', witches inadvertently resurrected by a teenage boy in Salem, Massachusetts on Halloween in the 1993 fantasy comedy-horror.

These witch costumes worn by Kathy Najimy as 'Mary Sanderson', Bette Midler as 'Winifred Sanderson' and Sarah Jessica Parker as 'Sarah Sanderson' were designed by Mary Vogt and photographed on August 23, 2019, at the D23 Expo in Anaheim.

Plus the exhibit also included the vacuum cleaner prop used instead of a witches broom in the 1993 film.

If you were bewitched by these outfits, maybe you'll also enjoy these other witch costumes from Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, this Wicked Witch costume from Oz: The Great and Powerful and Meryl Streep's witch costumes from Into the Woods on display.

Hopefully all these screen-worn costumes will supply some spooky inspiration this Halloween.
