Dress Like Billy Butcherson (Hocus Pocus) Costume for Cosplay & Halloween

Costumet Team

Billy Butcherson lived and died in the late 1600s. He was the ex-lover of Winifred Sanderson, one of the witch sisters in Salem during this time.

Winifred poisoned him and sewed his mouth shut when she found him cheating on her with her sister, Sarah. Three hundred years later, the unfortunate Billy was resurrected by the Sanderson Sisters to do their dirty work for them.

Billy is a corpse, and he looks like one, too. He wears a rather dapper medieval-inspired ensemble (although it’s rotting after centuries of being buried under the ground). It looks like they buried him wearing his best clothes. Here’s everything you need to look like Billy Butcherson.
