Something Wicked This Way Comes: Harry Potter Costume Ideas

There are a few things that I would hope people come to understand about me (and Spencer):

1. I love dressing up, whether in costume or in pretty dresses.
2. Holidays are a hobby of mine.
3. Spencer and I share a deep love all things Harry Potter.

So given the opportunity to dress up as characters from Harry Potter for a themed mystery dinner as a Halloween event, you can pretty much guarantee we will be there!

This year the actual day of October 31st was uneventful, in terms of the usual holiday traditions. But last week we made a mad dash for Charlotte to visit friends and celebrate HP style. Broad Run High School's Homecoming was Friday night, and since I wanted to attend the game we waited until early Saturday morning to make the 7 hour trek. The drive down was easy, but we barely got a chance to rest as we helped finalize details for the party.

Spencer was cast as Gilderoy Lockhart for the night, which I thought was too perfect. He even printed headshots to bring to the party and sign for people. I was Professor Trelawney. I mean if I wasn't Hermione, was there any other choice?? The party was complete with a Honeydukes candy table, butterbeer, and we even "ran" through Platform 9 3/4 to get to Hogwarts. AWESOME.

I won both trivia contests, one for flavors of Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans and the other for guessing the names of the characters present. Spencer and I were both voted for best costumes and character portrayals. We really had a blast. Waking up the next morning to come right back to Virginia was pretty rough, and we probably won't make a similar trip ever again, but we did enjoy ourselves. Chelsea, Jack, and their friends were such a great group.

The rest of our Halloween activities were pretty low key. We attended the ward party as a princess and a medieval druid. Sadly we took no pictures that night. For actual Halloween we got dinner from Chipotle since they were giving away free burritos if you came in costume. Dressed in puffy vests, a tiara, and an Ash Ketchum hat we were apparently festive enough for cheap dinner. Then we volunteered for candy duty so my parents could roam the neighborhood with my sisters. We rotated turns playing N64 games and answering the door with Loren.

So maybe Halloween wasn't so simple. Either way I can't believe October is already over. Where has the time gone?!

Kristyn here. I'm really good at Googling, dreaming, and thinking outside the box. Someday I'm going to save all the puppies and perform on a Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade float.
