Harry Potter Costumes
Are you a Harry Potter Fan?
If you are a big fan of all things Harry Potter you might be looking for the best Harry Potter costume for Halloween this year! Here are some of the best Harry Potter Costumes with great discounts!
My family is addicted to Harry Potter- don't worry, no spoliers about the Deathly Hallows part 2 except that if you have not seen it you just HAVE TO! My son (who I call Cutie online to protect his privacy- also modelled the image to the left) is 7 years old and has Autism.
Harry Potter has been near and dear to our hearts since my son first said "I ca-can't be a wizzard, I'm Harry- just Harry" in a cute little british accent!
For Cutie, Harry Potter is not just for Halloween, he plays Harry dress up daily! We all have some kind of Hogwartz attire but Cutie has the Quidditch outfit, the full school uniform, glasses (which he usually does not wear because of sensory issues) and even a wand collection!
We (my son and I) have scouted Amazon to try to find some of the best deals on some great Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Slytherin, Dumbledore, Dementor, Mc Gonagall, Death eater and other Harry Potter costumes. Please note that the prices on Amazon may fluctuate and sometimes it takes a few days for the modules below to reflect the changes. I hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed finding them!
Harry Potter Costumes: Hogwarts Robe- Gryffindor
This is the Deluxe Gyffindor robe- This is the one that my son has! It is amazing- we actually bought this robe when he was only 3 years old (it was long and dragged on the ground) and now at 7 years old we finally need a new one- this one is still in great condition, it is just too small for him now!
This robe can be used for Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley or any other Gryffindor!
Even though the deluxe robe is a little more expensive I think it is well worth it because it is so incredibly durable and can be played in!
Harry Potter Costumes: Harry and Gryffindor Accessories
Godrick Gryffindor was one of the four founders of Hogwarts. He was known for his courage and chivalry. Those selected by the sorting hat to be in Gryffindor are willing to stand up for their beliefs and are not easily dissuaded.
Here are a few other things that complete the costume! A simple white button up shirt and either black pants or boys or black or gray skirt for girls is all that is really needed in addition to a wand and robe, but if you really want to go all out look below!
Harry Potter Costumes: Hogwarts Robe Slytherin
Here is another deluxe robe! This robe has all of the same qualities as the other including durability but this one has the Slytherin emblem and green lining.
Harry Potter Costumes: Slytherin Accessories
Salazar Slytherin, one of the four founders of Hogwarts, was known for his ambition. Students selected for placement into the Slytherin House are often cunning and possess bold ambitions regarding stature and power.
Here are some great Slytherin accessories! The most important accessories to complete your Slytherin costume would be either a tie or scarf to clearly display your house colors, and a wand!
Harry Potter Costumes: Hufflepuff Costumes and accessories
Helga Hufflepuff, one of the four founders of Hogwarts was known for her acceptance. Everyone is welcome into the house of Hufflepuff regardless of ability. Hufflepuffs are known for their hard work and loyalty. The house crest for Hufflepuff is a badger!
Here agre some great Hufflepuff costumes and accessories! I recommend the robe and either a tie or scarf to clearly show your house colors.
Harry Potter Costumes: Ravenclaw Costumes
Rowena Ravenclaw, one of the founders of Howarts, is renownde for her exceptional intellect and creativity. Those who are placed in Ravenclaw by the sorting hat are very intelligent and can expect to master all of the branches of magic.
Here are some great Ravenclaw costumes and Accessories! I recommend a robe and either a tie or a scarf to clearly show off your house colors!
Harry Potter Costumes: Albus Dumbledore Mask
"Albus Dumbledore was never proud or vain; he could find something to value in anyone, however apparently insignificant or wretched, and I believe that his early losses endowed him with great humanity and sympathy."
Professor Albus Dumbledore is one of the finest Wizards ever! He is also a Gryffindor. He is able to maintain his high moral standards and avoid corruption despite his incredible powers.
This Dumbledore Mask in one of the best I have seen!
Harry Potter Costumes: Dumbledore Accessories
I strongly recommend either of the hats as the most important accessory. I have not been able to find a Dumbledore Robe set, but if you click on the mask above Amazon will show you suggestions for Wizard robes to go with it- some of them look like they would work very well!
Harry Potter Costumes: McGonagall's Hat
Professor Minerva McGonagall is head of the Gryffindor house and a very well respected, talented and nurturing witch. Professor McGonagall was like a mother to Harry Potter although she remained very reserved, his wellbeing was always her priority.
She is very strict, but never mean!
"Transfiguration is some of the most complex and dangerous magic you will learn at Hogwarts. Anyone messing around in my class will leave and not come back. You have been warned."
-McGonagall's warning at the beginning of Transfiguration class.
Harry Potter Costumes: Death Eather
The Knights of Walpurgis were the original followers of Lord Voldemort who ultimately came to be know as the Death Eaters. Professor Severus Snape had at one point been a Death Eater who then became a spy, reporting Voldemort's plans to Dumbledore.
This is a great death eater costume! It includes the Mask as well the hooded robe! The robe (I know it is hard to see in this tiny picture- you can click to get to amazon and enlarge) is very detailed with dark gray swirls on the arms and a discreet pattern on the body.
Harry Potter Costumes: Dementor
Get too near a Dementor and every good feeling, every happy memory will be sucked out of you. If it can, the Dementor will feed on you long enough to reduce you to something like itself...soulless and evil. You will be left with nothing but the worst experiences of your life."
The Dementors are some type of evil creature that suck out their victim's soul. Wizards and Witches everywhere fear an encounter with a Dementor as the Dementor's kiss can suck out your soul, leaving you physically alive, but in a comatose state.
This costume has done an impressive job of recreating the look and feel of a Dementor! If you are going to a themed party then this would be a great costume to scare the other witches and wizards!
