The Sanderson sisters

Grab your magic wand, brew a few potions, and get ready to have some fun. Choose your favorite sister. Are you the sweet, ditzy Sarah; the driven, mean Winifred; or Sarah, the mediator?
Jafar or Sorcerer
If an evil sorcerer is more your style, consider Jafar from Aladdin. Who doesn’t relish the chance to be evil and nasty for a day? Get into character of the sorcerer obsessed with being all powerful.
