Harry Potter Premier, Party, and Costumes

IMG_8316

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 . . .

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

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.
