As you took a gander and checked out the above photos, it is very likely that you have considered some new and creative ways to create your very own Harry Potter costume.

The book series includes seven fantasy-based novels that highlight the adventures of everyone’s favorite boy wizard, Harry Potter. The stories start right before he is accepted into Hogwarts, the official school that teaches witchcraft and wizardry. Throughout each book, Harry’s main purpose is to defeat the dark wizard and evil character referred to as “Lord Voldemort”. All of the books have been converted into movies where the epic adventures and tales were brought to life by numerous actors, actresses, and props. Harry Potter is known for his courage, intellect, and his keen senses.

Now, all of these wonderful traits and characteristics may be exhibited through your very own Harry Potter costume ideas. To instantly transform yourself or your friend or loved one into Harry Potter, here are some easy to follow instructions that will assist you in making this type of costume.

Instructions for Converting a Muggle to Harry Potter Instantly

Items Needed:
  • Hair Gel
  • Deep Red Lip Liner
  • Maroon and Yellow Striped Tie
  • Black Cape
  • White Collared Shirt
  • Black Pants
  • Play Glasses
  • Small, Sturdy Stick
  • Black Shoes

Step 1: Use the hair gel on dry hair in order to spike it.

Step 2: Use the deep red lip liner to create a lightning bolt scar on the forehead. Once it is drawn on the forehead, smear it just a bit so that it looks more like a realistic scar.

Step 3: Put on the white collared shirt, the maroon and yellow striped tie, the black pants, the black shoes, and the cape.

Step 4: Place the play glasses on the face.

Step 5: Use the small, sturdy stick as the “wand”. You may choose to paint this stick in order to make it look realistic.

By following the instructions above, you can create a magical and memorable costume that will instantly transform a muggle into a magical wizard.
