Need a Halloween costume? Look no further than the UC Davis department of theater and dance’s Enchanted Cellar.
UCD students, faculty, staff and community members may choose from dozens of detailed and whimsical costumes inspired by history, popular culture, fantasy and more.
New offerings this year include Superman, Catwoman, Spectra from Watchmen, Captain America, Raggedy Ann and Andy, and a variety of costumes in larger sizes.
Movie lovers may enjoy masquerading as Alice in Wonderland’s Alice or Mad Hatter, their favorite Hogwarts professors from “Harry Potter,” or the heroes and villains from “Star Wars” movies, including Anakin Skywalker, Han Solo and Darth Vader.
For history buffs, the Enchanted Cellar carries Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI, Egyptian, Greek and Roman outfits, and styles of the 1920s to 1960s. There are also pirates, samurai and fantastical characters including witches, warlocks and goblins.
