What’s old is new again! Morris Costumes/Seasonal Visions is dusting off an old classic, the Lunging Haggard Witch; but this time they are adding a new wrinkle: digital eyes! The Halloween prop company revealed their latest creation at TransWorld in St. Louis this weekend.
The old Lunging Haggard Witch is a classic and has been in my collection for years. She’s always a favorite at Halloween because she looks harmless enough, until she jumps out and try to grab you! If you aren’t familiar with the Lunging Haggard Witch, check out the video below.
When activated the creepy old witch says one of four eerie phrases.
“Well hello, you don’t happen to have an candy for a sweet old lady do you? Give it to me! You’re too quick for me but I’ll get it next time, hahaha!”
Do you not fear ugly witches? Perhaps you should since one poisonous touch from me will wither your soul! Gotcha! Ahh, you escaped my grasp, for now!
Want to play a game of tag? If I catch you I get to turn you into a toad. Abracadabra! Oh drat, judging by the speed you jumped back perhaps you are part toad already!
Excuse me, can you help a sweet old lady find her cauldron? I can’t seem to find it anywhere. I gotcha! Oh, if you weren’t so fast you’d be in my cauldron right now.
Standing right at six feet tall (at the top of her hat) the old witch is quite impressive. And most importantly, her mouth moves when she talks. This is a big deal for me. I hate having a prop that talks but you can clearly see that their mouth isn’t moving.
While it’s unknown just how much the witch prop will cost, it typically varies from store to store or site to site. With the upgraded digital eyes, I would imagine that the Lunging Haggard With will retail in the $249.99 to $299.99 range. But that is pure speculation.
Please keep checking back. Halloween is right around the corner and there are some pretty cool things coming down the pipe for 2021!
