Ranni the Snow Witch from Elden Ring

Ranni, also known as the Snow Witch (voiced by Aimee-Ffion Edwards) is a character in the Elden Ring video game.  Ranni provides the Tarnished with the Spirit Calling Bell after receiving the Torrent from Melina. Ranni’s costume includes an oversized hat that can be difficult to pin down unless you purchase a pre-made cosplay set.  If you’re looking to build your own costume, you may need to scale down the hat size or scour handmade shops on Etsy.  Either way, adorning the brim with an adjustable silver headpiece can help it look more like Ranni’s from the game.  Whether you decide to make your own costume with different pieces such as a medieval-inspired dress and faux-fur trimmed cloak or purchase a full set pre-made, you can always take your outfit to the next level by adding pale blue body paint and a matching wig.  Likewise, if you’d like to create extra arms–Ranni has four–you can follow a tutorial like this one if you’re feeling a bit crafty.

Lilith Clawthorne from The Owl House

Lilith Clawthorne (voiced by Cissy Jones) is an antagonist in season one and a supporting character in season two of The Owl House.  She and her sister Eda are both witches.  Lilith cursed her younger sister in order to become part of the Emperor’s Coven.  Lilith has worn several different outfits during the show.  She has long, dark blue hair and pale skin.  In the first season, she wears a dark grey and black ensemble, but by the end of season two, she is wearing a green top with a burgundy skirt and brown vest.

Gus Porter from The Owl House

Augustus Porter (voiced by Isaac Ryan Brown) is a witch on the Disney Channel series The Owl House.  He is close friends with Luz Noceda and Willow Park.  Gus has a dramatic flair, which serves his track as an illusionist.  He is excitable and enthusiastic. When recreating Gus’ look, you’ll want to focus on either his more casual appearance or his Hexside uniform, though both rely on layering different pieces with a medieval feel to them.

Eda Clawthorne (Red Dress) from The Owl House

Eda Clawthorne (voiced by Wendie Malick) is a rebellious witch in the animated series The Owl House.  As a young girl, Eda was cursed by her older sister Lilith.  Eda’s current appearance is a little different from her original look on the show.  Now, she wears a three-tone dress that can be tough to find an exact replica of, but by taking a little time to layer different pieces together and cut the hems to match, you can achieve a similar look with minimal effort.  Using glue or fabric tape, you can add a jewel to the front of the outfit to match Eda’s.

Rowena Ravenclaw

Rowena Ravenclaw from Harry Potter

There is no official actress for Rowena Ravenclaw as the founder died long before Harry Potter attended Hogwarts. And while there are descriptions in the book, cosplaying as Rowena still leaves lots of room for personal interpretation. The one thing you don’t want to forget, however, is her diadem.

For this version you’ll need a long auburn wig, a blue gown, matching blue slippers, a wand, and a leather journal with a blue stone. An eagle necklace rounds out the bewitching look.

Mikaela Reid from Dead by Daylight

Mikaela Reid from Dead by Daylight

She arrives in Dead by Daylight on October 19th.

Amity Blight's Grom Outfit from The Owl House

Amity Blight’s Grom Outfit from The Owl House

Amity Blight (voiced by the delightful Mae Whitman) isn’t one of Luz Noceda’s biggest fans. At least not at the start of the series. But by the time Grom rolls around she’s had a change of heart. And when Luz needs her most, Amity is there.

While Grom might sound like Prom, fashion on the Boiling Isles are a little different Rather than a long flowing gown Amity opts for a light purple undershirt with puffed sleeves, a darker purple vest over the top, and a knee-length skirt somewhere in between. Her socks match her shirt and come up to her ankles while her shoes are a little shorter than that and more closely match her vest. However that color is very hard to find and black boots are very close in color.

To finish her look you need accessories in addition to her main outfit. Her vest has a pink teardrop shape which you can recreate using fabric paint. A green wig and pointy ears give you that Boil Isles look while black triangle earrings are her only real accessory. Finally, when all is said and done, you may want a Grom crown all your own.

Hester from the School for Good and Evil

Hester from The School for Good and Evil

Hester is the daughter of a distinguished witch. Perhaps one of the most distinguished witches, specifically the one who lived in a gingerbread house. After losing her mother and arriving at the School for Evil, however, Hester begins to build her own legacy and set herself up as a distinguished student in her own right.

In the first book of the series Hester is describes as ” a tall girl with greasy black hair streaked red, black lipstick, a ring in her nose, and a terrifying tattoo of a buck-horned, red-skulled demon around her neck”. She is also said to have black eyes and dress in the black robes the students wear in the School for Evil.

The nose ring is easily replicated with a fake that pinches your nose and black lipstick is a must for the costume. Her black eyes, however, should only be replicated using contacts from a certified opthometrist as the low-cost versions off the internet carry serious risks to your eyes. To replicate her hair you’ll want to get a wig and some clip-in red extensions. Pomade can replicate a greasy look or you can leave that part out.

The robes aren’t described in great detail so a fairly plain witch’s costume is suggested. They range from witches robes to the kind of dark dress and collar that someone with Hester’s style might prefer.

Finally you’ll need body paint to recreate her tattoo. Then you’re ready to go off and take your own classes at the School for Evil.

marnie piper character

Marnie Piper

Marnie Piper (Kimberly J. Brown) is the protagonist of the Halloweentown movies from Disney Channel. Upon discovering her grandmother Aggie Cromwell (Debbie Reynolds) is a witch, she sneaks onto the magical bus to Halloweentown, full of other supernatural creatures. The first film deals with an evil warlock named Kalabar, and the second on the revenge of his son, where Marnie must stop them both. The third movie revolves around Marnie bringing students from Halloweentown to high school in the mortal world. There’s a fourth movie too, but we don’t talk about it. Throughout the saga, Marnie steps into her power as an headstrong, independent witch. Iron or sew on the moon and star appliques to the hat and cloak as shown in the picture. A second option could be to cut the shapes out of silver foil, as the material looks rather shiny. For some extra magic, add silver trim to the lining of the cloak.
