Making a costume at home, like Harry Potter, is a cheaper alternative to buying a entire costume at a store. Why not have the fun of making a costume with your kids and save some money at the same time.
You only need a handful of items are needed to get that perfect Harry Potter look;
1. The first thing you need are
Harry Potter - Harry's Glasses. A pair of black round glasses. The best place to look for these is any store that sells novelty items. Many times they will have eyes attached to the glasses with springs. They are easy to remove and perfect for Harry Potter Costumes.
2. Next you will need a long sleeved rugby style shirt, orange with red stripes to match Harry's. If you have a scarf with those same colors it will be perfect to use as a Gryffindor scarf.
Or you can go for the Gryffindor Robe look when you are planning your Harry Potter outfit. The kids at Hogwarts spend a lot of time in their dress robes.
4. The last thing you will need is Harry's magic wand. Here is one from
Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince - Harry Potter Wand You can make a wand out of a stick or out of some paper and duct tape. Use brown duct tape to wrap your rolled up paper to make this costume accessory. You can also find a wand at a party store. If you want to go Wizard all the way you can add a
Harry Potter Broom. You can use your room or buy one online. May as well use yours since this costume is only good for one night. Save yourself the money.
Now put your costume together and see how it looks...do it before the day you need it just in case you want to add something to the look!
A Harry Potter costume is simple to put together. Change into the rugby shirt, a pair of jeans, and any pair of sneakers. Next thing to work on is the glasses. Put a piece of tape around the middle of the glasses just like Harry's oft broken glasses. Using an eye pencil draw the lightening bolt scar slightly off centered on the forehead. Finally, if your hair is dark and long you can put some gel in your hair to make it messy like Harry's. If not then there are many different wigs that are available to match the look.
