Harry Potter Costumes

With complete excitement for the final Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Ava and I attended the midnight showing in our region in our costumes. 

Helena Bonham Carter made me love Bellatrix Lestrange.  I had previously went to the Harry Potter Exhibition and stood there studying this outfit.  Did you realize it's got lots of swirls in the fabric, I was amazed I found something so similar.  I also followed the pattern of her corset from photos online.

Ava pulled out Quidditch costume that she made from the earlier movies; with detailed observation you'll realize the Quidditch uniforms change later in the movie series.  She's got the padding and goggles and all.  Her gloves are actually SWAT repelling gloves, she can punch anything and not hurt at all.  Um... but we'll leave her to just catch the snitch.

We got really bored waiting in line so we went and had some photo fun.  While there we also saw someone dressed up as the blue Pixies, two petronuses, and an awful lot of Luna Lovegood with her Spectra-Specs.
