Here are just a few of the costumes you will find to transform your child or yourself into Dorothy Gale. Dorothy is the young star of this 1939 movie. She is a 12 year old girl living on a farm with her Auntie Em and Uncle Henry. The farm is run with the help of three farm hands, Hunk, Zeke and Hickory...who also appear later in the characters of the Scarecrow, the Tinman and the Cowardly Lion.
Dorothy is caught up in a tornado and bumps her head. She wakes up in a magical and strange place called Oz...along with her farm house. The house landed on a Wicked Witch who has shoes with magical powers. Glinda, the good witch, transports the magical shoes onto Dorothy. When the evil witches sister comes looking for these shoes and when she finds them on Dorothy she is very angry. "I'll get you my pretty, and your little dog too" is the warning she gives to Dorothy.
In order to find her way home everyone sends her to see the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, an all powerful and all knowing wizard who lives in the Emerald City. She has to follow the Yellow Brick Road and along the way she meets the Scarecrow, the Tinman and the Cowardly Lion, who help her find the Emerald City and the famous Wizard.
The characters in this movie make wonderful costume ideas for kids, adults and teens. So take a look at our selection for this Halloween!
The Scarecrow Costume from the Wizard of Oz
The Scarecrow Costume from the Wizard of Oz is one of the most popular of all the costumes from Oz. And why not, the Scarecrow her best friend along the perilous and wonderful journey to the great city of Oz. Ray Bolger is the actor who plays the characters of Hunk the farm hand and the Scarecrow.
Next It's The Tinman Costume
The next character Dorothy meets is the Tinman and we found several different Tinman costume ideas including one for woman! So ladies if you always wanted to wear a tincan hat, here's your chance. Jack Haley is the name of the actor who plays Hickory on the farm and the Tinman in Oz.
Read each costume description carefully. Sometimes you don't get everything in the pictures. With the Tinman costume you do not get the axe. You can buy one or you can make your own using a cardboard cut out in the shape of an axe and covering it with aluminum foil or shiny silver paint. You will also need some silvery makeup so look for that at the costume store where you buy your costume.
Want to Wear the Cowardly Lion Costume?
The Cowardly Lion Costume is another one of the most popular Wizard of Oz Costumes for Halloween. Remember "If I Were King Of The Forest"? The Cowardly Lion wasn't a coward after all. He just needed a little reinforcement and recognition to say he was brave. Make sure you supply a "Badge of Courage" for your Cowardly Lion. Bert Lahr was the actor who played Zeke the farm hand and the Cowardly Lion in Oz.
The Wizard of Oz costumes don't stop with these four main characters. We've got plenty more fun ideas for your, your family and your friends. So whether it is one costume or a group of costumes you need, we've got some fun Halloween costume ideas for you.
