Before you get your very own Voodoo costumes, you might like to know a bit more about Voodoo. Our views of Voodoo are very influenced by popular culture, movies, songs, shows, and sadly, historical racism and discrimination. The kind of voodoo magic you often see featured in movies, with witch doctors and voodoo dolls, is a mashup of quite a few different religions and traditions. Haitian Vodou and Louisiana Voodoo and Hoodoo, which are different from, for instance, West African Vodun, seem to have influenced the public’s imagination the most. Voodoo costumes or witch doctor costumes are also influenced by popular characters like Doctor Facilier from Disney’s The Princess and the Frog. Did you know he’s inspired by the Baron Samedi, a prominent figure of Haitian Vodou? Important figures such as Louisiana Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau also influenced popular culture. In fact, she’s a character in Season Three of the popular TV show American horror story!Voodoo is a fascinating mix of cultures and traditions. Feel free to do more research about the different religions that inspired Voodoo before getting a witch doctor costume. Once you’ve done that, take a look at our collection of Voodoo costumes!
