With last week’s release of “Oz: The Great and Powerful,” we were able to dust off our ruby red slippers and follow the yellow brick road again. Featuring a stellar cast, the wonderful imagination of Disney, and incredible special effects, this movie was expected to be one of the most entertaining films of the year. And it seems that it succeeded in meeting all expectations! All the excitement has got us reminiscing about how wonderful and magical the original movie was, so we’re taking a trip down memory lane by sharing with you our favorite classic Wizard of Oz costumes.
We’re starting off with the lovable Dorothy, who teaches us that big hearts can conquer anything while traveling through the Land of Oz. Her iconic blue gingham dress and ruby red slippers have been cherished by Hollywood and Wizard of Oz lovers for years. You can get that same charming outfit in celebration of the film with this Dorothy costume.
And who can forget the charming Cowardly Lion, who showed us that courage isn't in how we feel but how we act? You can be just as brave on the outside when dressed as the courageous Cowardly Lion in one of our lion costumes.
Then, there’s the Tin Man, who had enough heart to help Dorothy in her quest, no matter how rough and tough the journey might be. This Tin Man costume encompasses this classic character in a very unique way and is perfect for those looking for a modern take on a classic costume!
Next, there’s the Scarecrow, who taught us that you don’t need a diploma to have a brain; all you need is common sense, patience, and thoughtfulness. Our scarecrow costumes are just as cheerful and friendly as the lovable Scarecrow from the movie!
Lastly, no story would be complete without the antagonist. In this case, the Wicked Witch of the West was a fearsome fiend that makes her a classic villain to this day. With this witch costume, you can create an updated look on an old-time favorite.
With The Wizard of Oz being a classic children’s story for many decades, we have costumes for every age group so everyone can celebrate the magic of this timeless tale. Now, newer generations will be able to fall in love with this classic tale with the release of “Oz: The Great and Powerful.” So go on, hop in that hot air balloon and get ready for the ride of your life!
