Fantastic Witchlore

Clad yourself in the Emerald Witch costume which is glamorous and bewitched. She is the Lady of the Green Kirtle, also called Queen of Under-land and Queen of the Deep Realm. She is the main vamp character in “The Silver Chair” written by C. S. Lewis. She is often referred as the Green Lady and mostly the Emerald Witch in context. 

 For your knowledge, surprisingly none of these names appear in the novel of Lewis. It seems the readers created and made these witch terms popular in masses. The witch enslaves Prince Rilian of Narnia using her witchcraft, and has taken an oath to take over Narnia. Unfortunately her endeavours meet with failure when she is defeated by three friends of Aslan.  What we know is that the phrase “Emerald witch” perhaps surfaced and became famous due to its analogy to Jadis, the White Lady who is also called the White Witch.

Emerald Witch Costume

The Emerald witch costume is a magnificent bubble dress of bright emerald colour, which is accompanied with green and black striped tights that matches perfectly with the emerald outfit. To complete the witch’s evil outfit, a black broach, a broom, a black overcoat or hood, and a black witch hat gives a complete wicked appearance to the apparel.
