Harry Potter Costume
Wizards are going to be very popular this halloween – but really, it’s one wizard in particular – Harry Potter! This has been a favorite halloween costume for a few years now, and this year, especially because the movie franchise has drawn to and end, kids everywhere are going to be making one last go at not being a mere muggle, and being our favorite Potter from Hogwarts!
So, let’s start by taking a look at the costume that we’re going for, the below is a picture of Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter (copyright Universal).
Harry Potter Robe
Let’s start with the Harry Potter Robe…in order to start this costume, you’ll need a long black flowing robe that opens up the front – similar to what is worn during graduation (that will work nicely if you have one) or what is worn by a judge.
Harry Potter Glasses
Those very round circular glasses that Potter wears are another key piece to this halloween costume. If they don’t have lenses, that is ok, the key is that you have some thick black very circular wire frames on your face – they’re unmistakably linked with Harry’s costume!
Harry Potter Tie
The Harry Potter Tie is another key accessory in any would-be Hogwart’s wizard costume. The tie should be diaganolly striped in a marroon and yellow color and is worn knotted underneath the Robe.
There are a selection of Hogwarts wands you can find for sale representing each of the characters in the movie. Harry’s is very distinct, so be sure to get one that is supposed to be his. According to the book, each wizard’s wand is unique and a reflection of who he is, so they cannot be switched out! Any costume store, party supply store, and even Amazon has the wands for sale – some that you buy can even be lit up on the end!
