Harry Potter meets ‘The Craft’ in this spooktacular Halloween cosplay
Goth-girl Wicca at Hogwarts and Jem and the X-Men are your new Halloween jam.
What’s better for Halloween than a great tribute to goth-girl-power movie The Craft? Literally nothing—until you cross it over with Harry Potter.
The all-girl cosplay group Skirts and Swords give us two great crossover photoshoots we never would have seen coming—yet they both work perfectly. The first is a trick and a treat that makes total sense: What if the girls of The Craft went to Hogwarts?
Bonnie, Nancy, Sarah, and Rochelle each get totally new vibes in this recreation of the famous walk from the movie poster:
We especially like the Hogwarts version because Fairuza Balk’s tortured Nancy makes an eerie amount of sense as a Gryffindor.
But these geek girls have one more trick up their sleeves today. You might not think crossing over Jem and the Holograms with the women of X-Men would yield spectacular results, but this shoot sells itself.
Jem + Dazzler = Jaz and the Hardlights. Behold:
Skirts and Swords
Photography credit for this shoot goes to Greg De Stefano Photography. As a bonus, here’s Yume Ninja and a friend, Michelle Nguyen Bradley, cosplaying as Aja/Psylocke and Kimber/Rogue, along with the fanart that started it all, done by Rage Gear Studios:
If that’s not enough to get your Halloween off to a totally outrageous start, then nothing is.
