My little sister, friend, and I went out to a Harry Potter release party and were interviewed by a (cute!) reporter from our local newspaper. We had no idea it was going to end up on the front page of the Sunday paper in color! The paper has 50,000 subscribers, so it's a pretty big deal.

Needless to say, we were psyched!

It's a pretty big scan, so I'll just link it:

I'm on the left (Ravenclaw), my sister is in the center is in the middle (Gryffendor), and my friend Kat is on the right (she's a shopkeeper). She won first place in the costume contest. We all had the best costumes, actually, but there were some damn cute kids that got second and third. We reworked house brooms (took the twine out that keeps it flat, and wrapped new cord around the straw to make it rounded) and fixed up wands. Our robes are just graduation robes. I added a lining to my sister's, and both of ours have accurate crests. I was disappointed that I couldn't find pleated skirts, but the ones that we got looked alright. I was really happy with the tie, too. Not perfect, but I don't expect perfection.

Nothing is sexy like Harry Potter sexy.

Nice job ladies!  You all did a great job on the costumes and I hope you liked the book (I know I did!).

Hehe.  Awesome job.  I've been thinking about making my own uniform costume for halloween.

The costumes all look great! It's no wonder they made the first page! I particularly like the shopkeeper's hat, even though you can't see the whole thing. Great job and I hope you didn't have to wait too long to get your books!
