When did witches become sexy?

I am talking about the image of the witch. When I was little witches were green with warts and scary. Now the image is sexy, beautiful and sometimes half naked. When did this new image start?

  • When modern witchcraft became a more widespread religion. To continue portraying witches as monsters would almost become a form of religious discrimination to some people. Why are they sexy? Because a large portion of the people who practice are young females, also considered sexy by many. But that's just my opinion.

  • I wonder if there's some random celebrity that portrayed a sexy witch on TV in the 70's or something. Or maybe with the TV show Bewitched, the image changed from the Wicked Witch of the West to Samantha, yanno? But the previous poster has a good point too =]

  • It isn't just witches who've become sexy: look around a college town around Halloween for the last 6 or 7 years. Everything has a "sexy" costume for it. Boxer, Soldier, Vet, ect. Hell, last year I saw a sexy "mummy" costume. With more and more revealing attire becoming the norm, many women/girls use Halloween as an excuse to take it the extra mile and not feel, for lack of a better word, slutty.
