As a big Harry Potter fan since 1999, I finally succeeded in accomplishing what I’ve been dying to do since the first HP movie came out.
I finally put together a Slytherin costume. XD XD XD
Last month, I had ordered a Slytherin crest patch from some crest specialty store in Canada in preparation for my costume. Aside from the crest, I had already had a black pants (no skirts for me!), white collared shirt, and of course my lovely Slytherin scarf my friend Michelle made for me.
All I had left was a Slytherin tie, a wand, and a robe. After much debate and receiving advices from friends, I decided to abandon the idea of getting a custom-made robe and just purchase one that’s already made. I figured that in the end, the price of a custom-made one including buying the material would cost me double or triple the amount of what I could buy online.
Upon arriving home from class tonight, I found the package waiting for me right as I walked in. I had the most goofiest, happiest grin on my face as I raced to find my Xacto knife. I ripped package open, and I looked and tried on my purchase. As I thought, the robe was too long, so I need to get it hemmed. Oh, and I need to get the crest on there as well! ^_^
Oh man, just swinging that wand around and waltzing around the house with my whole outfit (minus the sweater, but I think my aunt will just find me a black or grey V-neck vest if she can’t find a sweater) made me feel like I was a real witch in the Harry Potter world.
Now that I got all the material, I can’t WAIT till Halloween now! XD
