Harry Potter Costume Ideas
Just admit it. You've taken a wand-shaped object, pointed it at something, flicked your wrist, and exclaimed, "Wingardium Leviosa." No judgment here, we love it. All of us Harry Potter fans have desperately tried to make an object levitate! If you are particularly fond of how you look in a black robe and you've always dreamed of receiving an acceptance letter to Hogwarts, then it's safe to say that you're a Harry Potter fan. We've grown tired of waiting for that owl to arrive, so we decided to do the next best thing: create our own version of Hogwarts! That's right, we brought the school of witchcraft and wizardry to us and we are more than happy let this stand as your invitation to join! No, we don't have the Hogwarts Express or a transporting Platform 9 ¾ to stand on, but what we can supply for you is simply magical. We have Harry Potter costumes for children and adults, as well as costume kits, accessories, and other officially licensed props. Before you know it, you'll be assembling your own Quidditch team and conjuring up your own Patronus. Gather together for a truly magical night when you binge the movies while in costume! Keep the sun out of your eyes with the Sorting Hat and Spectrespecs while you unite with other wizards to chase down Confoundables. It's time to add a little splash of magic to your Wizarding World fandom…all without the need of potions!
Harry Potter Halloween Costumes
The adventure into the Wizarding World usually begins with a trip to Madam Malkin's Robes for All Occasions (or maybe to the Junk Shop if you need a few hand-me-downs). Fortunately for all of us, Madam Malkin has shared all but her self-ironing patterns so we can help you find the character costume that you've been hunting for! Step into the role of your favorite wizard costume and become one of the iconic characters from the books and films or create your own Halloween wizard!
Harry Potter Costume
Sure, they say that Harry Potter is a children's series and we definitely have some fantastic Gryffindor looks for your little Harry Potter. But imagine the possibilities for you, too! Dab a little white or gray face paint and you can help your little Harry on the way by becoming the ghostly guardians of James and Lily! Of course, it's mostly about the grin on your tyke, right?
Hermione is the teammate who's always prepared and the brightest Gryffindor ever to be sorted to the House. So you'll want to make sure your tyke's Hermione Granger costume is looking just as smart. Thankfully, you've got options. A wig with long and frazzled hair makes your kiddo a young go-getter where a more serious cut shows your kid is a real academic leader!
Harry Potter Costume for Adult
The right accessories and pose can really create your wizard character. You might choose an adult Harry Potter robe and forsake the scar for a confident pose. Suddenly, you're a student prefect. They have a little more authority and freedom to cast spells and make potions. Perhaps you'll be the one to help all survive the Death Eaters and show what happens after graduation!
Luna Lovegood Costume
If you really want to show an air of confidence, there's only one House that knows all the tricks of Hogwarts…and only one Ravenclaw that can claim to know even more. Luna Lovegood is a brilliant wizard who shows the world that Gryffindors aren't the only heroes. Rock a Ravenclaw look that would make even Hermione wonder if that brilliant blue isn't just a little bit better!
Harry Potter Robes
We live in a world where everyone is waiting for their letter of invitation to Hogwarts. (Heck, most of us would take an acceptance letter from Ilvermorny or even the rainforest school of Castelobruxo!) Unfortunately, those letters are rare and if you haven't received one by now, it probably won’t happen unless the owl got delayed. While you're waiting for that missing invitation, we can offer a different kind of exclusivity that will have you fully prepared for the day. We're happy to offer up Hogwarts Robes that you won't find the like of anywhere else! We're sure you've taken all the quizzes or can feel what the Sorting Hat would say, so it's time to robe up!
Where dwell the brave at heart. Can you hear the Sorting Hat calling you to the House of scarlet and gold, of the lion, of the ferociously nurturing and equal-parts dangerous Minerva McGonagall? Well, garb yourself in the exclusive Gryffindor Robe that will mark you as a member of the house founded by Godric Gryffindor and prepare for the adventure of a lifetime.
Filius Flitwick doesn't stand for idle minds and that's why he and the most knowledgeable wizards in the world join with Rowena Ravenclaw's wittiest of Houses. Getting in isn't easy. Wearing your Ravenclaw Robe certainly helps, but you'll have a riddle to puzzle out, too. Here's one: your colors are blue and bronze in the books, but blue and what for the silver screen?!
If there is one House that knows about exclusivity, it is the one of Salazar Slytherin. Now, the green and silver serpent's House might have created a couple more Dark Wizards in Slytherin Robes than others, but it also created some of the most ambitious and successful wizards in history. Severus Snape and Merlin both had spells that no one else could muster!
Do you think of yourself as a hard-working and down-to-earth kind of spellcaster? Perhaps you want to foster a comfortable den to enrich your life! Well, if badgers are too cute to resist and rich colors like yellow and black bring out your eyes, the House of Helga Hufflepuff is calling your name! Join with Professor Sprout in your Hufflepuff Robe. Bonus: you're next to the kitchen!
Harry Potter Costumes for Kids
You can hardly have an amazing Harry Potter themed adventure without a trio of witches and wizards who are ready to make for a magical night. Naturally, Harry and his core friends make for the iconic group, but there are a ton of characters that you could bring in for the fun. (Remember all those awesome Houses to choose from!) We highly recommend that Luna be nearby to give Harry and even Hermione a chance to bring their hairbrained schemes to a deluxe level. After all, this Ravenclaw wonder knows more about the mysteries of the world than all the Gryffindors together!
Harry Potter Accessories
Witches and wizards seem to have the coolest gadgets. They get to snack on the coolest treats like chocolate frogs that come to life and flavored jelly beans that can taste like anything...and we mean anything! They also get to experiment with Polyjuice potions and other cool items like Time Turners and Invisibility Cloaks. Of course, we wish that these objects were available in our muggle-world, but the sad reality is that we are just not magical enough to conjure up these creations. However, we were able to create accessories and props that look similar to the ones that Harry and his friends often use. Take a look at these cool items and use them to make your outfit a little bit more magical. You could also pair any of the items with your Harry Potter themed costume. Take a peek at these sweet accessories to see if you need to add one of them, or all of them, to your bewitching look!
Luna Lovegood Spectrespecs
It's true that Luna is a little, well, strange but she's also a phenomenal witch who put her life on the line to help Harry and his friends defeat Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters. If you want to dress up as the one and only Luna Lovegood, then we urge you to add these spectre specs to your costume. In the movies and books, Luna's wacky glasses that she got for free in an issue of The Quibbler, allowed her to see wrackspurts. According to Luna, wrackspurts are invisible creatures that float through one's ears causing their brain to go fuzzy, so she wears the colorful spectacles so she can detect the tiny pests. Pairing this accessory with your costume will give it some authority and other Potter fans will pay you compliments for wearing these cool glasses. If you happen to see any wrackspurts floating through the air, please let us know!
Everything in Harry's world is more magical than in the muggle world. Even their scarves are better than the ones we get to wear...that is, until now. When Harry is strolling through Hogsmeade Village with his pals, he's bundled up in his cold-weather accessories and he looks surprisingly stylish. Being stylish is really not something Mr. Potter is known for, but the famous wizard looks undeniably fashionable when he's wearing a long Gryffindor scarf. Now you can look just as dashing when you're strolling through your home village because you can wear a Gryffindor scarf too. Almost identical to the one Harry has wrapped around his neck, this officially licensed scarf is scarlet with gold stripes, and also features a Gryffindor House crest patch. Wear this scarf with a costume or with your winter coat so you have a little piece of Hogwarts with you wherever you go. You can even top off your look with a matching hat!
Harry Potter Sorting Hat
We often wish that we could be first years, entering Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, full of wonder and excitement. We think about what it would be like for Albus Dumbledore to call our names so we could sit in front of the whole school and have the Sorting Hat placed on our heads. We hope that the hat would shout out, 'Gryffindor,' but it could very easily place us into the Slytherin House. Now, you can have your own Sorting Ceremony in the comfort of your own home! This Sorting Hat looks exactly like the one in the Harry Potter movies. It is made to look old, so it is stitched up with patches. If you look closely, you can also see that a face is indented into the fabric. However, it doesn't speak. It looks like you're going to have to use your imagination if you want to make this Sorting Hat come to life!
Harry Potter Broomstick
Maybe you're not into sports so much, but if you're anything like us you would give literally anything to play in a Quidditch game. We daydream about becoming our team's top Seeker, catching the golden snitch, winning the game, and hearing all of Hogwarts cheer for us. Now our dreams (and most likely your dreams too) can come true! This officially licensed Harry Potter broomstick resembles the Nimbus 2000, but we hear that it's actually faster than the Nimbus 2001! You'll love showing off the gold wing accessories attached to the back and the detailed broom handle. You'll make all the other House Seeker jealous when you zoom by, dodging Bludgers on this beautiful broom. You can use this cool prop as a decoration in your house or you can really meet up with some other Potter fans at a park and get a game of Quidditch going. We have a feeling that you'll be the standout star of the game when you wiz past the other players on your shiny new broomstick!
