About Elphaba Costume
Elphaba was an evil and wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz story. But in reality, she was only trying to fight against the Wizard of Oz for taking away the animals’ speech ability. She also discovered that the Wizard was not all-powerful, and he was, in fact, a fraud. To keep the secret from coming out, the Wizard’s press secretary spread reports that Elphaba was wicked. Her opposition to the Wizard was the reason she earned the title the Wicked Witch of the West.
The new understanding and meaning brought to the character have given people a deeper appreciation of Elphaba. Though her appearance is still mostly associated with evil and wicked witches, people are now beginning to see her in a different light. If you look at the Elphaba cosplay photos, you can see that she is not only a costume for Halloween, she’s a great costume option if you plan to go to a comic or movie convention or attend costumed parties.
