Bette Midler wins for best celebrity costume of Halloween 2016. The beloved actress went as Winifred Sanderson, her character from the cult favorite Hocus Pocus! Fans of the classic Halloween movie have long been clamoring for Hocus Pocus 2, with no official word about it so far.
But, if Disney makes a sequel, it seems that Bette is in! Not only did she pull off an amazing Winifred costume this year, but she also donned it for her tour last year. She came out on stage as Winifred, sang "I've Put A Spell On You," and then dramatically announced, "I'm ready for my sequel, Mr. Disney!" No word yet from Sarah Jessica Parker or Kathy Najimy on whether they'd reprise their roles, but we'll keep our fingers crossed.
Bette beamed in the iconic big red wig, green-and-purple lace-up dress - complete with lace bell-sleeves - and mystical chartreuse coat, attending a Hulaween party at the Waldorf Astoria this weekend. She went all out, complete with peacock-blue talons, fake teeth, and glittery broom. It's almost *scary* how much she resembles her original Winifred, especially because Hocus Pocus came out 23 years ago. You go, Bette!
While she's waiting for Hocus Pocus 2 to become a reality, Bette has been busy! She joined The Voice as a guest mentor, and has reportedly been having a blast with Blake Shelton. "Blake is a hoot!" she said, "I personally think -- if I were his agent -- I would get him on the big screen as quick as possible."
