Harry Potter Costume
Yes, he wanted to be Harry again. Remember last school year's "Dress Like Your Favorite Character Day"? Well, Harry is one of my favorite characters as well. So we just beefed up our costume idea a bit more.
He still had his fleece cape, and Grandma W added a silky black wizard robe. We found a cheap reddish tie (that Granma W cut down a bit) and added gold stripes (like Harry's school uniform). He also wore his navy sweater to further look like Harry in his uniform.
We printed out the glasses from here, onto cardstock. And the lightning bolt scar was courtesy of my eyeliner.
Hedwig was crocheted by yours truly for the last Potter appearance.
The wand was cut off some of our cherry tree trimmings by Ross.
And a super fast Nimbus 2000 was of course crafted by the woodworker in the family.
Et voila.....Harry Potter, boy wizard of Central Oregon!
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
