Couples Costume Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters created some rockin' retro steam-punk costume for the January 3013 movie. Last year they made an appearance in time for Halloween 2012. This year, the kick-butt costumes will be popular once again, especially with couples who want to find a steam-punk couples' costume for Halloween, one in which the woman can wear pants.
This brother sister bounty hunter team who exterminate mean and nasty witches with high power advanced weapons may be one of the best couple costumes ideas for a Halloween costume for a couple in quite some time.
While I am not a big fan of gun-toting, machine gun-killing characters, I do like costume designers, Marlene Stewart's steam-punk styling witch hunter costumes. Take a look at the Halloween and DYI versions.
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters never quite found it's niche, because it was an action, comedy and horror film. What a combination. Reviewers described the movie as a Quentin Tarantino-Style Fairy Tale or a Buffy the Vampire Slayer style film that combies action and horror with humor.
It is possible that the costumes might be more popular than the movie itself.

Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunter Costumes
There are two different versions of the Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunter costume, the main difference is that the deluxe version comes with a jacket, the basic version with a vest.
Hansel's Witch Hunter Costume
Hansel, one half of the bounty hunting Witch Hunter team, is played by Jeremy Renner.
His costume, designed by Marlene Stewart, is what one might expect from a fairytale bounty hunter, looking a bit like a hunter or a woodsman and a bit like a pirate giving it a retro steam punk feel.
Reviewers said we haven't seen this much cool-lookin' leather since The Matrix although the official costume is not leather.
The officially licensed Hansel costume released in time for Halloween 2012 includes a brown jacket made of 72% cotton and 28% polyester, a 100% cotton shirt, a vest that is 80% polyester and 20% cotton, pants that are 79% polyester, 20% rayon and 1% spandex and a brown belt.
Missing from this costume are the boots and any weaponry that one might want to carry as a bounty hunter. In the trailer Hansel is wearing fingerless gloves and a bounty (black) belt.
I've pulled together some of the costume extras below.

Make Your Own Hansel Witch Hunter Costume
For those who prefer making or pulling together their own costumes, this less detailed Hansel Costume is an easier one to replicate (without the long coat).
To pull together this Hansel costume look for a basic pirate style shirt, a dark brown "Huntsman" style vest and a pair of baggy gray or black pants.
One way to sew the Hansel pattern is to use Simplicity Pattern 4923. This pattern comes with a shirt, vest and pants that could be used to customize Hansel's costume.
Complete the costume with a pair of knee high leather boots, leather cuffs (different from the promotional photos), a brown Men's Journeyman Belt and any weapons that you would like to carry.
