Harry Potter Costuming
The Most Ancient and Noble House of Black

Since I've been lurking,
Just thought I'd share:
So my last minute costume is almost finished, I'm going as Bellatrix Black from her school days. I am quite surprised that it's turning out to be an almost-good looking costume which consists of:

  • A gray button-up sweater which I've hand-painted the silver and green stripes, I also added three more buttons and button-holes.
  • Painted silver stripes onto dad's old green tie
  • Decorated a canvas bag with the Black Family Crest and motto "Toujours Pur" (Always Pure).
  • I turned a Slytherin magnet into a pin-on badge
  • The standard white Oxford shirt
  • Standard gray skirt
  • Black stockings and flats
I'm thinking about turning a black leather journal into a book about the Dark Arts or something of that nature.
Ideas? Am I missing anything?

It would be terrific to see pictures (especially of the bag, that sounds awesome)
Everything sounds terrific. Maybe a few love notes on hand from Rodolphus Lestrange other than that I think you have everything covered.

My camera is being fussy as of late, I'll probably have pictures after friday though.

Haha I like the love note idea! Thank you!

I just made quite the mess covering my Pureblood bag in "bloodstains", I figured it would be funny and appropriate since I'm going to be Bellatrix.

It seems like messes come with Bellatrix territory as right now I'm in the process of making a papermache' Death Eaters mask and my god is it messy.

OMG THAT'S AWESOME!!!! See that's why I picked School-aged Bella too, for all the fun things. ^_^
