My kids have known for months what they wanted to be this year. It all started when we listened to the first Harry Potter book on tape this summer on our way to California.
Luckily, I talked the little ones into being owls so we could finally have family themed costumes.
It helps that my kids already look similar to the characters.
I can't get over how much he looks like a young Harry Potter.
I made the robes with a $5 bolt from Walmart. I was so excited when I found it. They were a nightmare to line with the burgundy, but totally worth it. I ordered the patches online for a few dollars each.
Hermione wants to wear hers 24-7.
It was her idea to pose with books. She takes her character very seriously.
There has been non-stop spell casting in our home all week.
I don't know if I should be concerned that they keep trying to kill each other with their spells?
Kate was so excited to not just be an owl, but Harry's owl.
I was inspired by THIS costume, but made mine a little differently.
I made the mask so it could be worn over her eyes or can sit on top of her head.
I think my favorite is the brown owl.
I just love all the textures of the fabrics.
And I love the mask. It's so cute and only too minutes to make.
