“Hocus Pocus” is a Halloween classic, one that’s inspired many a Halloween costume over the years. In the 1993 film, Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy play three bewitching sisters who have been awakened some 300 years after they were executed for practicing witchcraft. It’s a fan favorite movie and is beloved to this day — even 26 years later.
Because of the large fan base this movie has, you can easily find Halloween options for humans who want to dress as the three infamous sisters, but thanks to one superfan in Wisconsin, we now know that dogs can make great versions of the witches, too!
Instagram user @2husketeers posted an image of three dogs dressed as the three sisters, and it’ll have you howling with laughter.
“Watch out for any witches that might put a spell on you and your treats!” reads the caption.
