Celebrate The Wizard of Oz 70th Anniversary

The Technicolor masterpiece that is the film “The Wizard of Oz” was released in 1939. The grand Hollywood musical-fantasy film was based on the 1900 children’s novel “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” by L. Frank Baum, and has continued to make an impression. If you need proof, just see the musical film “The Wiz”, the movie “Australia” or the musical “Wicked!” and you’ll understand.

According to Wikipedia, on September 23, 2009, the film will be re-released in select theaters for a one-night only event in honor of the film's 70th Anniversary. And a 70th Anniversary Edition of the film on DVD will be released on September 29th.

You can become part of the magic by dressing the part! Our Wizard of Oz Costumes for Kids section has costumes for Dorothy, the Cowardly Lion, the Scarecrow and the Tin Man, plus a dress up trunk set for girls that’s good year 'round.

Do a search for “Wizard of Oz” from our search box on the left and you’ll see we also have a Glinda the Good costume for older girls, Accessories like Toto in a basket and ruby slippers, plus our Wigs section has Dorothy and Glinda wigs.

For adults who are off to see the Wizard, we’ve got Dorothy, Glinda the Good Witch, The Wicked Witch, The Cowardly Lion and the Scarecrow. The are even saucy versions of Dorothy’s costume, and a Cowardly Lioness. If you do a separate search for the Tin Man you’ll also find a latex mask and a oil funnel nose.

Plus, you can use our Fantasy FX silver makeup to be the Tin Man, or a few different types of green face makeup if you want to be The Wicked Witch, and you won’t have to go through what cast members did back in the old days of Hollywood.
