Get hype, witches — spooky season is back! This time of year may mean leaning into any intrigue you have toward the supernatural or occult, or you may prefer to celebrate the season with festive decorations and epic parties. Or if like the rest of us, you've already convinced your kids to watch Hocus Pocus 2 with you on repeat, you may be whipping up some DIY costumes for your mini-coven. Witch-ever sounds more like you (sorry, couldn't resist), we have you covered with whimsical witch captions for Instagram photos of your Halloween adventures or your brim-topped costume.

For a solo, couple, or group costume, go with a cheeky caption that harks back to nostalgic, witch-centric movies like Hocus Pocus or Twitches. If your photo leans artsy (think: dimly lit cobblestone streets or a Ouija board), choose a sinister-sounding quote. An Instagram of your autumnal outfit or decked-out manicure? Emojis are the way to go. And for the tween or teen already channeling some Big Witch Energy, you can't go wrong with a few words from bewitching shows like The Worst Witch or Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

Trust us; it'll be hard to choose just one — or to stop using them once October is over.
