Happy October Gang!
I know I've been lacking on the Halloween content but don't worry, I'm back in action. I thought it would be fun to countdown my favorite fictional witches! I spend a good portion of my time reading fantasy and paranormal fiction, so I have quite a few.
Sucy: From Little Witch Academia, She is a Filipino witch, who is efficient with poisons. She's always gathering new plants and materials to create different potions. Her friends are almost always a guinea pig, but I don't think she actually means them any harm. Whenever they're in trouble, Suzy always has a poison up her sleeve. I also love that she always looks ghostly as well, you never see her out of her uniform robes, but I feel like she would have that goth girl aesthetic. She's super sarcastic too, which I adore in a female character.
Ursula: I know she's considered a sea witch, but let's not split hairs. Ursula is my favorite Disney Villain as well. When I was younger, The Little Mermaid was one of my favorite movies, but I could actually care less about Ariel. I was all about the music, and the mischief that Ursula could get up too. I was ecstatic when she made an appearance in the Kingdom Hearts Series and I am patiently waiting for her stand-alone film ala Maleficient.
Zatanna: Is there a difference between a witch and a sorcerer? Eh, I won't go into too much detail, I fangirl about Zatanna pretty often on here. She was my first convention cosplay, and I'm still recognized for it, so she'll always have a special spot in my heart. Her amazing magical abilities only hindered by her need to speak her spells backward she is one of the most powerful magical beings in the DC universe. She is criminally underused.
Kiki: From Kiki's Delivery Service. One of my favorite Ghibli films and probably the first representation of a witch I can clearly remember, Kiki will always be special to me. Wanting to make her own mark on the world, and not following in other's footsteps is something I've always admired about her. She moves to a new town where she doesn't know anyone and starts her own delivery business, and makes new friends. Her cat talks which is always a plus in my book.
Sabrina Spellman: NOT THE TELEVISION VERSION. I'm strictly referring to the comic versions only. Original Archie's Sabrina and Archie Horror Sabrina have really grown on me. Thanks to the amazing new comic by Hack and Aguirre-Sacasa, I have just fallen in love with the dark and gothic themes of their story. I'm super interested in learning more about Sabrina's father, and what other villains will appear, and now that she's slated for her own television program, I can't wait for more.
