Wizard of Oz Costumes

"Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore!"

The Wizard of Oz is a 1939 American musical fantasy film based on the popular L. Frank Baum stories, about a teenage girl, Dorothy, who lives in Kansas with her aunt and uncle. Dorothy and her dog Toto are caught in a tornado's path and somehow end up in the land of Oz. Things in Oz are strange and beautiful, but Dorothy is desperate to get back home. In Oz, Dorothy is told to follow the yellow brick road to the emerald city to see the Wizard of Oz who can help her get home. Along the way, she meets a myriad of colorful characters such as the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man, the Scare Crow and the Wicked Witch of the West. Her film follows the journey of Dorothy and her friends to meet the wizard, who everyone says can help her return home and possibly grant her new friends their goals of a brain, heart and courage. Dorothy is helped by the Good Witch of the North, but she's also in trouble with the Wicked Witch of the West, who seeks revenge for the death of her sister, for which she blames Dorothy.
