Witch costume and Samurai helmet from 47 Ronin on display...

2013's 47 Ronin was inspired by the real-life tale of a group of masterless samurai who avenged the death of their lord in 18th century Japan. Many movies have been made inspired by this legend, but this box office flop stars Keanu Reeves as the adopted 'Kai' who is taken in by the benevolent 'Lord Asano' and joins with a band of samurai to avenge the death and dishonour of the master at the ruthless 'Lord Kira'.

In the film, 'Witch' is a Japanese sorceress with different colour eyes played by Rinko Kikuchi, who serves the scheming Lord Kira. You can't really see from the front of this flowing green silk dress, but it's a backless kimono to show off the character's back tattoo.

For other witch costume designs to inspire you for Halloween, be sure to also check out these cool witch costumes from Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, Hocus Pocus witch movie costumes and the Wicked Witch costume worn by Mila Kunis in Disney's Oz The Great and Powerful.
