Standing 17 inch tall, the Wicked Witch is fully jointed at shoulders, hips and neck with the R. John Wright ball and socket jointing system. She has a realistic molded felt torso and limbs and her amazing felt hands have individually sewn fingers with applied fingernails. The molded felt character face has been finely modeled in a true likeness with hand painted features and shaded green complexion. The Wicked Witch's wig is made of the finest custom dyed mohair and styled exactly as it was in the film.
Extensively researched for the utmost in authenticity, the Wicked Witch of the West is outfitted in a tailored Victorian-style dress of black cotton fabric with a matching laced waistcoat and purse. A dramatic flowing black cape fastens at her throat. Period undergarments, dark stockings, hand-cobbled black pumps and a replica hat with attached silk veil complete her trademark ensemble. This is the most accurate representation of this iconic film character ever created. In one hand, the Wicked Witch carries a detailed custom made miniature of the broom as seen in the film.

Each will come enclosed in a deluxe presentation box with the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration.
