Halloween is the perfect time to dress up as your favorite superheroes, villains and hero-villains. Last year, Avengers Scarlet Witch (a.k.a. Wanda Maximoff) and Vision were among the top costume picks for many, especially after the successful and exciting drop of WandaVision on Disney+. Now, with the 2022 release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Marvel fans are once again searching for ways to perfect their Scarlet Witch looks.
And that's where these easy and super-creative DIY Scarlet Witch costume ideas come in. Whether you want to dress up as Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) for an exciting couples costume or throw it back to WandaVision and channel Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) or Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings), this guide shows you exactly how to create an enchanting look by simply adding a few things to your Amazon cart. Another plus? Not only do these costumes work for duos or trios, but they also make the perfect addition to Avenger group costumes.
DIY Scarlet Witch Costume
It wasn't until the final episode of WandaVision that we see Wanda Maximoff truly embrace her powers and become the Scarlet Witch. After losing Vision and fighting in a final battle with villain Agatha Harkness, Wanda, spurred by her grief, fully accepts her powers of telekinesis, energy manipulation, and neuroelectric interfacing. To become the Scarlet Witch yourself, start with your base layer and build up. Although a red leotard is most similar to Scarlet Witch's base layer, you can also use a red bodysuit, t-shirt or tank from your own closet. Invest in her iconic headpiece and trusty cape to truly capture the look. To finish it off, if boots aren't your style, opt for sneakers or ballet flats.
DIY Wanda 70s Pregnancy Costume
For a simpler costume that is lower-lift, try Wanda's vibrant pregnancy costume. While pregnant with twin boys, Wanda dons this blue, red and orange shift dress that gives off a fun '70s vibe. Grab a pair of shiny black boots to really match Wanda, or pair with some plain sneakers from your closet. Not looking to invest in a wig? Simply use a straightener to get those long locks.
DIY Vision Costume
Although Vision's green-and-yellow costume is definitely an interesting choice for the traditionally red superhero, it's the perfect look for the folks who love to be as unique as possible. This colorful look Vision wears for Halloween in the show actually pays tribute to the original comic series. If you really want to commit to the costume, use red face paint to mirror Vision's ever-present red hue. Going with your significant other? Have them dress up as Scarlet Witch for an adorable couples costume.
DIY Vision 70s Costume
WandaVision may have showcased six different eras over just nine episodes, but the clothes Wanda and Vision wear during the '70s era have to be some of our favorites. This one is especially cool because of how simple it is to recreate. Using any old button-down, a sweater vest and some red paint, you can easily recreate Vision's '70s clothes. Memorize a few of Vision's iconic quotes to really bring life to the costume.
DIY Doctor Strange Costume
As the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange uses his powers to protect the Earth against magical and mystical threats. In the most recent installment of the Doctor Strange focused-movie Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the neurosurgeon turned superhero ends up having to defend Earth against none other than Scarlet Witch, who has gone rogue following the final events in WandaVision. To achieve Doctor Strange's look, start with some sort of navy base layer, like a long navy maxi dress or even a navy bathrobe. Layer two to three black belts to cinch the base layer at your waist, then add a red cape and, of course, the Eye of Agamotto amulet.
DIY Agatha Harkness Costume
Scarlet Witch isn't the only powerful witch in this series. Enter Agatha Harkness, our proclaimed villain of the WandaVision series, who enters the lives of Wanda and Vision as new, albeit annoying, housewife Agnes. Agatha's look is truly what everyone thinks of when you say the word "witch." Use purple, navy and black dresses, skirts and shirts to create the layered look Agatha wears after revealing her true identity. Heavy eyeliner and eyebrow makeup will help you recreate her spooky look.
DIY Agatha '80s Costume
Throwing it back to the '80s with this outfit. Agatha Harkness, disguised as nosy-neighbor Agnes in this scene, looks like she came straight out of an '80s exercise tape with this getup. The great thing about this costume is that the outfit can vary with patterns and colors, which makes it much easier to build with pieces you already own. Don't forget some fun sneakers and big curls to finish off the outfit.
DIY Quicksilver Costume
As the fraternal twin brother of Wanda, Pietro Maximoff (a.k.a. Quicksilver) is no stranger to Marvel fans. If you're looking for a good costume with your bestie, you can't go wrong with a joint Pietro and Wanda costume. For Pietro's attire, all you need is a blue shirt or sweatshirt and duck tape. You can opt for a wig or use silver hair spray to create Pietro's silver mane.
DIY Darcy Lewis Costume
As a member of S.W.O.R.D., better known as the Sentient Weapon Observation and Response Division, astrophysicist Darcy is part of the government operation to look into the town of Westview because of the mysterious phenomenons occurring because of Wanda's magic. Recreate Darcy's look with some sort of black jacket, red lipstick and costume eyeglasses. The beanie is not essential, but does add some more edginess and will help keep you warm.
DIY Captain Monica Rambeau Costume
Monica helps save the town of Westview from the supernatural hex accidentally created by Wanda. If there's one thing we recommend you buy for this costume, it's the colored contacts, since it gives Monica her signature bright eyes that showcase her powers. You can also invest in a S.W.O.R.D. sweatshirt, or print out the logo and tape it onto a plain sweatshirt for a more budget-friendly option.
