I recently came to the realisation that my closet is 3/4 full of cosplay clothing and about 1/4 of everyday clothing. I decided to sell the stuff that I just didnt wear. I LOVE this hoodie but it just doesnt look quite right on me. I have dark hair and am very pale (a rosey pale) so it kind of washes me out. Sad because its SUPER comfy and really really pretty.

Please someone give it a great home and take tons of cosplay pics!

I checked the rules and didnt see anything about sales/eBay posts but if this is not allowed let me know and I can remove it.

I am selling my Hermione Zara cardi from the Deathly Hallows! I love it but just dont wear it so I thought that I would give someone else a change to have it!

26th-Aug-2012 11:25 am - Death Eater Costuming Question
So I've been contemplating putting together a Death Eater costume, but I'm awful frustrated at the lack of suitable costume pieces for sale. Unfortunately I can't sew even if you had a gun to my head and forced me to, so making it myself is out of the question. Commissioning someone else to do it for me is an option, but I'm not even 100% sure yet what I want. I don't just wanna throw on a random black cape, put the Dark Mark tattoo on my arm, and call it a day. I want something that looks good and maybe a little different from the standard Death Eater cosplays.

I'm also debating whether I really want to go for the movie!Death Eater look, with their Ku Klux Klan-esque hats/hoods. I also didn't love the masks in the films. I kind of want something a little more rustic/natural looking. The only thing I've found so far that might work is this. I definitely don't just want a typical "goth" look, which I feel is a trap some Death Eater costumes fall into. My Google searches aren't turning up a whole lot, so I'm wondering if anyone here has cosplayed as a Death Eater, and if so, if you can point me in the right direction or give me some tips.

I'm auctioning off my Prefect Pin at tophatter.com tonight. It starts at $3, and would be a great addition to your Harry Potter costume. You get to choose your house. Check it out!

I have to admit, it drives me absolutely *crazy* when I see folks dressed up as the Founders of Hogwarts, and they're wearing Renaissance costuming.

As written in the 1990's, JKR states that Hogwarts is 1000 years old. And in Scotland. Therefor, the Four Founders would NOT have worn anything that looks like Ren Fair garb. At all. No, their time period would have been the late 900's, early 1000's, and from northern Europe. They would pre-date the Norman invasion of 1066. Granted, one of them could have migrated on their own from other places in Europe to meet up with the others and settle on building a school in Scotland, language barriers aside.

But the costuming... yeah, I still have to put my foot down on that. No matter *how* magical they are, they wouldn't be wearing fancy clothes from 500 years in the future. Scotland was seriously remote, cut off from the rest of the country (for the most part) and overrun with wild Scottish clans. Not exactly the height of fashion. The Four Founders would have stood out like very gaudy peacocks, even among the local wizarding population.

Yes, I *know* the Four Founders are magical. But the availability of clothing was slim to none, even for nobility. And I will venture to say that went for the local wizarding population as well.

And yes, this means I am up to something. Again. New DE outfit and a historically accurate (well, as much as I can with the fabrics available to me) Founder costume. I would love, love *LOVE* to see more historically accurate Founders costumes at the Misti-Con. Hint-hint.

16th-Jun-2012 12:09 pm - Cleaning out the Costume Closet
Hello Everyone! Glad to finally have a computer back so I can keep up to date with the community! Im actually in the process of getting everything together that is taking up space in my (already small) house and selling what I don't want/need anymore. I've sold a lot of peices already but I found a floor length black cloak that I had folded in a box in the top of my closet. It's got a pointed hood and it's unlined stretch moleskin with a smooth backing. If anyone is interested I do have pictures that I can share, or you can hop over to ebay and take a look at the pictures that I've got on the auction.


I have the peices to make some more (though they arent moleskin they are a black rayon challis solid, and a brown rayon challis solid) that i can put together rather quickly as well if anyone is interested. Feel free to contact me through here, ebay, or my facebook. Hope to update soon on my HP costumes i've competed.

Hi there, new to this community but I was wondering if anyone knew what clothes Sirius is wearing during the initial scene in OFTP when everyone is in the kitchen talking bout Voldemort. The one with the dark red velvet jacket? Much thanks to people
