This is a Harry Potter Post.
(With lots of pictures, taken by my lovely and talented friend, Diana.)
Last night I went to the midnight premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two.
I have been waiting for this for literally, 10 years. (I didn't get into the books until the movies. Yeah, I'm one of those.)
So with it being the last ever oppurunity of my life to ever see a Harry Potter movie at midnight, and since I didn't get to go last time, I had to make it count.
In the past i've just dressed up as a Ravenclaw, since that's my house. I was all set to do that this time, but then I decided to make a t-shirt instead.
So I started with that. A t-shirt from the craft store, chopped to fit me better and look much nicer.
Deathly Hallows symbol, which is obvious, and Team Severus, which is obvious if you have read the books. (Or have now seen the movie...) I love me some Snape.
So as I was finished the shirt on Wednesday night, I went and wore it to school the next day, (geek pride!), but I wanted to wear it so it would look nice, as opposed to just wearing it with a pair of jeans, which I find to be boring.
As I selected one of my favorite floral skirts to make it more me, I thought to myself "This is a bit Luna Lovegood", and went on with the day.
Then all of Thursday afternoon I was crazy excied mess, and decided a t-shirt just wasn't enough.
I went with the Luna look, and made myself a butterbeer cork necklace (to keep the nargles away), and a pair of derigible plum earrings.
|Buterbeer necklace, owl pin, Derigible Plum earring, Ravenclaw nails!|
I curled my hair, and picked a pair of bright tights to finish off the Luna look.
I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. Even though I am not a blonde, I still think I made a pretty good Luna. Even though a few people had to ask to make sure I was Luna.
While I usually dress up based on current hair conditions, for Harry Potter, I cannot. Ginny is boring. Don't really want to dress up like Molly, and I have my issues with Lilly.
Luna is one of my favorite characters, and it was fun to dress up as her!
Even though my style isn't all that far off from hers, so it almost didn't feel like dressing up...
|With my owl I made at "Build a Bear", named Hedwig, of course.|
Of coure, as a hardcore fan, I am sad it's over. Leading up until the movie I would start to tear up at every new clip and video posted. I knew I would be a mess at the show, and I was right. The last half of the movie, the tears would not stop. During one montage of a certain half blood, I was literally shaking, trying to suppress my sobs, tears streaming down my face. So touching. Even more than the book, I dare say.
I don't want to spoil it for anybody though, so I will just say this, BRING TISSUES.
I'm still sad that it's over. Realizing that there will be no more Harry Potter after this. When the seventh book came out, at least there was still movies to look forward to. Now there is nothing.
So I am trying to hold it together.
"It isn't really goodbye, after all."
"Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home."
