Harry Potter Robes Halloween Costume
Harry Potter robes are necessary in order to become a member of Gryffindor House, at Harry Potters Hogwarts School of Witchcraft And Wizardry. The garment is a black full length robe which has a deep red lining and attached hood. The crest of Gryffindor house is worn on the front part of the robe and this is a gold colored lion rampant over a red background. This is the heraldic and traditional symbol for bravery, chivalry, courage and daring. These are the mottoes for members of Gryffindor house.
The several other houses of Hogwarts School each have their different colored robes. The robe you would prefer to wear for Halloween can be chosen from the many robes which are available online. Harry Potter Robes look great and are a very popular costume for Halloween. These garments are also really nice and warm for a cold October evening at Halloween.
Quidditch is a team game played by teams of wizards who come from around the globe. The Quidditch robe which is worn by these teams is long, ankle length, and in crimson red color with a yellow liner. Quidditch is a fictional team sport which was invented by writer J.K.Rowling. This is a very fast game which is played by two teams each consisting of seven wizards riding on their magic flying broomsticks. The play consists of throwing a quaffle--a kind of ball, through three hoops in succession, and meanwhile trying to catch the Golden snitch. The team which captures the golden snitch wins 150 points. The game carries on till the golden snitch has been caught and may very well last for days or even for several weeks.
When you are dressing as a Hogwarts school teacher or professor, the correct robe is a necessity. Professor Dumbledore, wears a long robe of any color. However,his robe usually has beautiful designs of knitting with some fancy stones incorporated in the robe. For all the other Hogwarts school teachers, namely McGonagall, Severus or Trelawney,you can wear a long plain flowing black robe and this works just fine.
To be a true wizard, accessories will help. For example a magic wand in your hand. Another thing is the broomsticks that the Hogwarts students use for the Quidditch tournaments. If you decide to be Harry Potter himself, a pair of round glasses is a necessity as well as the z shaped scar on his face. Girls can spice up the appearance of the costume by wearing a bit of dark eye makeup.
