OMG Bette Midler dressed up as her "Hocus Pocus" character and it was FLAWLESS
Every Halloween, there’s one movie that stands out as being a must-watch classic. Yeah, you know the one. It’s Hocus Pocus, and it still holds up after all these years. In fact, Bette Midler recently dressed as her Hocus Pocus character, Winifred Sanderson, for her annual Hulaween Party at the Waldorf Astoria. Of course, she looked fantastic back in the makeup!
Midler’s party is actually a pretty incredible fundraiser. Proceeds and donations for the big event support the New York Restoration Project, which helps bring more green spaces to the city. It was a fabulous party and a fabulous cause, all organized by one absolutely fabulous person!
By checking out some of these pictures, you might think that Midler just stepped off set.
… but, alas. Hocus Pocus came out more than two decades ago! When piecing together the costume, Midler didn’t forget the small details — like, check out the lack of eyebrows!
Take a closer look — the makeup is absolutely flawless!
Either Midler has an incredible memory, or she herself has watched the movie annually since it was released back in 1993! Aw, Bette Midler. Just like us.
Midler was even nice enough to share the annual invite to her Instagram:
The guest list was definitely impressive — Kathy Griffin hosted, and Marc Jacobs served as the costume contest judge. (No wonder why Midler went all-out!)
It looks like Bette Midler definitely created the biggest event of the season! Now, if only Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy could have joined her…
