There's no doubt that Halloween and wizards go together, so it's a natural fit to blend Harry Potter with the scary season to come up with some fun Halloween costumes.
But Harry Potter is of course more than just Harry Potter, and the fun is the other interesting friends and foes also included in the Harry Potter Halloween costume mix.
So we'll look at some of these interesting and fascinating costumes and masks which make up the Harry Potter franchise.
What's great about Harry Potter is both adults and children really like the story, and so relate to the characters. Consequently, that creates a great opportunity for all Harry Potter fans to dress up as their favorite friend or foe from the movie, and also offers chances to have fun Harry Potter-themed Halloween parties where the rich mix of characters can be shown for all to enjoy.
We'll look at some of those characters' costumes and how they'll look at Halloween time.

While we all love Harry Potter, the one problem he has is he doesn't exactly dress in a compelling way, which shows in the basic costumes below.
That of course doesn't mean anything as it's the Harry Potter Halloween accessories you add to these costumes that make it so much fun; things like Harry Potter glasses, ties and wands, among other fun things. That's what really adds to the overall mix, but you do need a cool costume to underscore it all, and these do that very well.

Now what would a Harry Potter Halloween party be without faithful friend Hagrid there to protect and guide Harry?
This is a very lifelike mask, and would fit with any cloak you have available to complement it.
