Hello lovelies! I had planned to do a fun little Halloween-themed post and then I saw that the theme for today’s Top Ten Tuesday was a Halloween Freebie! So I’m linking up and sharing some of my favourite fictional witches! Let’s take a look, shall we? 😀
Glinda and Elphaba from Wicked
It is a dream of mine to see this show live – though I know it wouldn’t be the same as seeing these two original leading ladies. I love that Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth are such good friends in real life and I think they embody the wicked witch and the good witch so perfectly. And they’ve both got an incredible set of pipes.
Sabrina from Sabrina the Teenage Witch
Sabrina was always an idol of mine. I just thought she was the coolest. I even subscribed to her magazine where you got make-up and accessories free with each issue! Honourable mention to Aunt Hilda who was also fabulous.
Mildred Hubble from The Worst Witch
I feel like I’m showing my age here… Did anyone else watch The Worst Witch as a kid?! I used to love putting it on after school. Though of course, I read the books as well 😉
Frances and Jet Owens from Practical Magic
Practical Magic is one of my absolute favourite witchy movies and while I love the main characters, it’s the two aunts that steal the show for me. Midnight Margaritas, anyone?
The Halliwell Sisters from Charmed
Sorry any Prue fans but I wasn’t too bummed when she got replaced by Paige. I loved everything about this show: the 90s soundtrack, the sisterly bonds, the romances, the one-liners… And I’ll be totally honest, I have a girl-crush on all three of these women to this day. Please don’t even talk to me about the remake; they should have left well enough alone.
Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Confession time: I was WAY late to the party with BTVS. I wasn’t introduced to the Buffy-verse until I was at university. But Willow was one of my favourite characters right from the start and I loved following her character arc. Plus, what Joss Whedon did for the LGBTQ+ community with this character was fantastic.
Rowena from Supernatural
I thought Rowena was a great addition to Supernatural. A mad Scottish witch whose son is the King of Hell? That can only make for great tv! Rowena definitely provides some comic relief at times too.
The Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus
I watch this movie EVERY HALLOWEEN without fail. It is tradition. Sarah, Mary and Winifred are too fabulous.
Regina from Once Upon A Time
The original wicked witch revamped! Regina was a key figure in Once Upon A Time from the very beginning and I loved her character development. Got to love a good anti-hero.
Minerva McGonagall from the Harry Potter series
It took me a minute to decide who from Harry Potter should feature on this list (there are so many amazing witches in that series!) I finally decided on the original badass who was there from the very beginning and whom I was nicknamed after at my old job.
So those are some of my favourite fictional witches! Do we have any favourites in common? I’d love to know your favourite Charmed one or Sanderson sister! x
