So I'm going as Tonks tonight and need some advice....I have two different graphics for the weird sisters t-shirt I'm making to wear....

and...


Which one is best? And on what color t-shirt???

Also my hair is long and dark brown so I can't really dye it or style it like Tonks so my only option was a wig....and this was the only one I could find.....

Do you think this will work ok?? I'm probably going to cut the longer pieces off...any tips to help style it differently?? Huh This will be my first time in a wig since elementary school!

I have a black version of this without the buttons and a tie instead:

or a long black trench coatish...but it has double breasted buttons? Which to wear??? or modify???

Also any other help with accesories or any ideas at all would be greatly appreciated!!

I've got a black choker...and a wand....black boots with grey tights...??
Thanks all!!! Grin

i like the first t-shirt design.
maybe you could put the phoenix rising part on the back
change the font a little to match?

i do like them both, though.

I saw someone with the second one at the movie release.  She had that on the front and "London", "Hogsmeade", and something else that I can't remember right now.  It was on a white shirt so it really popped.

What about getting some of that colored hair spray stuff?  If it doesn't cover it completely, you can just say that you are in the middle of changing colors.  Her hair color change is not instantaneous.  It flows from one color to the next.

I vote for the trench coat.  Just feels more "Tonks-ish".

Have fun!!!

I like the first graphics A LOT.

I have no experience with wigs, but I love the bright pink of the longer bottom part! I wouldn't cut too much off.

Do you need the sweater or coat because of chilly temps?  If not and you are wearing it just for costume, I'd go with the trench coat. Tho you could definitely get by without it, having the cool t-shirt  Wink.
