I finally saw Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and I loved it!! I thought it was hilarious, heart-warming, a teensy bit scary, and, best of all, a fun trip back in the Potterverse! Naturally, being the Potterhead that I am, I had to deck myself out in all my favorite Harry Potter accessories. I decided to go with a Weasley inspired outfit – what do you think??
I started with a base layer of my Marauder’s Map quote shirt and then added a “Weasley” sweater, Gryffindor scarf, Gryffindor socks, a golden snitch pin and lightning bolt earrings. I guess this would be Ginny Weasley cheering Harry on at a Quidditch match (before she’s his teammate, obviously). All that’s missing is Luna Lovegood in her giant, roaring lion head!
Most of the accessories I’ve picked up here and there – the socks from a comic book convention, the pin from Wizarding World at Universal Hollywood, the earrings from Urban Outfitters of all places, and the scarf from the Warner Bros. Studio Tour outside London (see more from that trip here and here!). The rest of the outfit is stuff I’ve had in my closet, with the exception of the t-shirt, which is a recent purchase from Target.
Have you seen Fantastic Beasts yet, and if so, what did you think?? I am totally dying to go see it again. I cannot get enough Harry Potter, and I just love that the Potterverse is still expanding and growing so many years later. I get excited every time I hear about kids that are discovering the books for the first time and becoming new fans.
I love that I get to make robes for fans young and old, but I think there’s something special about making a Hogwarts robe for a young witch or wizard! ;)
I hope you swear to get up to no good and have a fun weekend! Thanks for reading!! :)
