So, a few days ago I went to the Harry Potter premier with friends and then last night went to a party with even more friends. I realized as I was putting together my costume, just how much navy, gray and black I have. I honestly could have put together five Ravenclaw uniforms, instead of just one. Here's what I ended up deciding on . . .
A-line skirt: The Limited
Argyle knee socks: Target
Eyelet Brogues/oxfords: a gift
Button-up shirt: thrifted
Night sky necktie: my dad's closet
Mens waistcoat/vest: thrifted
Blue blazer with gold buttons: thrifted
Plaid headband: It's a mystery (I've had it forever)

I made firewhiskey for the party and it was a hit. I made it by mixing roughly equal parts of bourbon and cinnamon schnapps.

Here are some of my friends' awesome costumes . . .
Jessie as Luna Lovegood (Will as a random student)
Luna was recently a
Leah and Corey as Tonks and Sirius
Jenny as Professor Trelawney
Nicole as Hedwig, perched on a little stump
The party was awesome. They're were some incredible fire pits - a big one in the back yard and a smaller one in the forbidden forrest.
