Winifred Sanderson and her two sisters lived in the 1600s. They all sold their souls to the Devil in exchange of magical powers and an incredible spell book. Needless to say, Winnie is a witch. She’s a very powerful one too. She’s sadistic, temperamental, and cruel: all characteristics that make her a typical witch. She’s also very cunning which makes her de facto leader of the trio of witch sisters.
Winifred’s outfit is definitely out of date in the modern world. She prefers a nice green-colored renaissance dress, an emerald green cloak, black and green-striped knee-high socks, and black ankle boots. Here’s everything you need to look like Winifred Sanderson.
Winifred’s most striking features are her big front teeth and fiery red hair, which she wears in a curled bouffant style. In contrast with her red hair, Winifred wears a greenish medieval gown.
