Hi, I'm making a Hermionie Granger costume for my daughter as she has been invited to a halloween party. So far I have a grey pinafore, grey tights, white blowse, a black cape and a griffindor scalf. I would like to find a griffindor badge to put on the cape and a red and gold stripy tie. I'm not sure where to look.
I had this prob a couple of years ago! In the end we had to make do with a school tie in similar colours. We didn't have a badge as there was one on the cloak - actually I got a fab deal off Ebay and still wonder if the seller was a Mnetter! She had sewed Gryffindor colours around a V neck school jumper to make it look more authentic!
Last Christmas we got some Harry Potter crackers which all had badges in them - I'll have a look in the morning and send you one if we still have them - think we had about 10 at one point
If I had more time and money, I'd really go to town with it. I love this sort of thing. I thought about covering a book in brown paper and writing "transfiguration for beginners". I'm going to plat her hair the night before too.
I thought the same for DD, am going to put a few plaits in the night before so it's all bushy for the party I might do a jumper aswell with the gryffindor colours in, I knit so can make that myself if I get the time. Is fun to put together though isn't it. I love fancy dress! lol
