Another ghoulish Halloween is upon us bringing plenty of themed parties and events, so I just can’t resist a bit of fancy dress! It’s that time of year when you can go out and have a laugh, go wild with your imagination and dress to impress. From headless horsemen, zombie brides, toxic nurses and vampires, there are so many ideas to choose from. I’ve secretly always has a soft spot for witches after watching Hocus Pocus on VHS as a child, so I’m totally in love with this stunning Fever Witch costume by Fancy Dress City.
Here I am wearing the beautiful Fever Witch costume in purple in a size S which is a UK8-10, with UK12-14 and UK16-18 also available. The set comes in a display bag with the witch costume and a hat on a headband. The display bag shows a picture of the model wearing the dress with her own stockings and a toy wand which aren’t included, so the picture I’ve taken here shows it worn without legwear or accessories. The dress is made from 95% polyester and 5% spandex making it very comfortable to wear as it stretches and shifts with your body and I would say this was a generous size small, perhaps more of a UK10-12 as it certainly isn’t tight on me. Despite being a corset design, it isn’t tight or restrictive at all and is by no means a chore to wear, I could happily spend hours in this doing my housework and watching TV!
As I have a large cupsize, what’s great about this dress are the black shoulder straps built in, as I’m wearing a bright pink bra under the costume and it covers it perfectly, so you don’t have to worry about faffing with strapless bras or clashing colours. The purple bust area is also very stretchy so it easily fit my 30FF bust, as most small sizes fit my lower half but not my top, so this is certainly accommodating and gets a big thumbs up for fit and comfort.
The pretty purple tutu gives the dress body and shape which makes you want to stand that little bit taller and wiggle your hips as you walk. As it’s sewn into the dress there is no fear of it slipping down or any wires digging in as the costume is entirely made of fabric. The front features a pretty stitched on criss-cross lace across a purple V-shape from the bust down to the waist; this creates a nice vertical stripe to draw the eyes attention inward and therefore slims the body, with the reverse side being black.
The cute little top hat comes on a black hair band which is how I’m wearing it here, but as it’s on a loop of material you could easily slip it off of the band and attach it with pins, slides or clips instead if you prefer. I feel sexy, confident and ghoulishly festive in this beautiful dress and can’t wait to wear it on a night out.
