Have a Spectacularly Magical Wizarding Harry Potter Christmas

22-harry-potter-christmas-w750-h560-2x

Moving on for my Merry Geekmas themed posts is on to Harry Potter. Unlike franchises like Star Trek and Star Wars, this universe certainly celebrates Christmas as you’ve probably seen in each of the books. This despite the fact that there’s not a lot of talk about Christianity other than the presence of churches in wizard villages as well the Fat Friar ghost. So it’s possible that at least wizards in the HP universe probably do have some degree of religious beliefs. They just don’t talk about them. At any rate, whenever it’s Christmas at Hogwarts, there are usually a brightly decorated trees and decor in the Great Hall even though it may be somewhat empty when students spend the holidays with their families. In Goblet of Fire, the Great Hall Christmas decor was even more spectacular with the Triwizard Tournament going on. As you can see, it was transformed into a winter wonderland for the Yule Ball, which Harry and Ron didn’t enjoy by the way. This especially goes for Ron since he wore a famously ugly dress robe and got pissed off that the girl he liked was going out with a celebrated Quidditch player he had previously gushed over. And he didn’t even realize it while Harry and the readers certainly did. Still, while Harry’s Christmas was more or less a happy occasion in the books before Goblet of Fire, especially the first when he received the Invisibility Cloak and his own Weasley sweater, it becomes darker as the books go on. One noteworthy example would be in The Order of the Phoenix when Nagini attacked Arthur Weasley in the Ministry. Of course, Christmas is certainly not a happy occasion for Neville Longbottom who certainly doesn’t look forward to it. Why? Because Christmas for him usually consists of visiting his parents who were tortured by Deatheaters to the point of insanity that they don’t recognize him. At any rate, there are plenty of Harry Potter fans that celebrate the holiday season in their own magically way possible. So for your reading pleasure, I give you an assortment of ways you can have a Harry Potter Christmas.

  1. Now you can celebrate the holidays with your own Harry Potter Weasley sweater.
Each Weasley sweater has a color with the wearer's first initial. Harry's is blue. Ron's is maroon.

2. If you like fantastic beasts, then you’ll adore this baby dragon ornament.

This one is of Norbert the Norwegian Ridgeback which Hagrid got in the first book. They had to have the little guy sent away. Later had name changed to Norberta.

3. A Patronus ornament will ward off Dementors from your tree.

This one is of a stag which is Harry's patronus charm. It was also his father's as well.

5. Be sure to hang up the mistletoe but beware of nargles.

Nargles are creatures Luna Lovegood or her dad might've made up. They're said to live in mistletoe and be quite the little thieves.

The flying keys were in the dungeon where the sorcerer's stone was being held. Yet, Harry spotted the one with the broken wing.

7. Those who like the Chamber of Secrets might want to have a mandrake ornament on their tree.

They're the plants that look like ugly babies with screams that could kill someone. Yet, they were instrumental in reviving people from being petrified.

Well, it's an owl ornament with a letter in its beak. Understand that wizards correspond through owl post in these books.

9. Merry Christmas from the Burrow.

As we all know, the Burrow is the Weasley house. However, I doubt that the Weasleys would use electric Christmas light decorations. Then again, Mr. Weasley likes Muggle stuff so it's kind of believable.

13. Nothing makes a great Hogwarts Christmas tree than with the Sorting Hat on top.

However, should a sword fall out when you're placing the Sorting Hat on top of the Christmas tree, then consider yourself a true Gryffindor. Also, beware of angry goblins from Gringotts.

16. Treasure moments of Harry and Dumbledore by the Pensieve with this Hallmark Keepsake ornament on your Christmas tree.

Because nothing says Christmas like looking into people's unpleasant memories in order to stop Lord Voldemort. This is especially so in the Half-Blood Prince.

17. How about a list that writes itself on your Christmas tree?

Well, Rita Skeeter has her Quick Quotes Quill that writes whatever she wants it to say. Still, I think this is quite clever if you ask me.

20. Looks like a doe patronus guides to Godric’s sword in a frozen lake.

We all know that's Snape doing it since the doe reflects his love for Lily. Ron uses the sword to destroy Slytherin's locket.

21. For a homey Christmas touch, you might want to go with a gingerbread Burrow.

I had a Burrow gingerbread house in the Harry Potter treat post in March. But this is more in keeping with the holiday spirit.

22. How about a gingerbread Hogwarts Express?

This one doesn't use much icing at all. Yet, it's surely in the Harry Potter spirit especially with the 9 3/4.

23. Add a dash of Dark Arts this Christmas with these Unforgivable Curse ornaments.

Because nothing says Christmas like 3 of the most powerful and sinister spells. You know spells that are classified as Unforgivable that they lead to a one way ticket to Azkaban. Except in the later Harry Potter books.

24. Make your Christmas tree more forbidden with vials of unicorn blood.

You know the substance that Voldemort sustained on when he was living in the back of Quirrell's head. Is forbidden by the Ministry of Magic and will result in the drinker living a half-life, a cursed life.

25. It’s always nice have Christmas with a cozy gingerbread of Hagrid’s hut.

Just remember it's not very nice on the inside since housekeeping isn't Hagrid's strong suit. Still, Harry and his friends don't seem to mind.

27. Solemnly swear you’re up to no good with this Marauder’s Map Christmas tree skirt.

Those are the words you say in order to open the Marauder's Map of Hogwarts which can monitor everyone. Makes me wonder why Fred and George didn't tell Ron about Scabbers being Peter Pettigrew. I mean they had to have known.

28. This howler ornament is well worth the shout out.

After all, nothing says Christmas like a letter from your mom yelling at you after you and your best friend use the family car to get to Hogwarts which crashed into the Whomping Willow. And having that car go rogue ever since. Still, when Mrs. Weasley gets pissed, watch out.

29. For a touch of pink on your tree, this Umbridge ornament has you covered.

I'm not sure how to feel about this. On one hand, she seems to have a scale on her shoulder and is riding a tricycle, which might mean she's under torture. On the other hand, it might symbolize her authority which would make me cringe.

34. Relive Harry’s first time in Dumbledore’s office with this Hallmark keepsake ornament.

For nothing says Christmas like being sent to the principal's office for freaking out a student with a talent you didn't know you had. Luckily Dumbledore already has an idea of who opened the Chamber of Secrets anyway.

35. This gingerbread Hogwarts is a real Christmas delight.

40. Snape fans would certainly want a Christmas ornament like this.

After all, his doe patronus and "Always" illustrate his undying love for Lily. Though it didn't encourage Snape to treat Harry better during Potions class.

95. A Harry Potter tree like this is simply golden.

Well, this one has lightning bolts and Quidditch hoops on it. There are even some golden snitches, too.

96. All these ornaments bear the mark of the Deathly Hallows.

And they're all in a variety of different colors. Must be for Xenophilius Lovegood's Christmas tree.

97. Each of these ornaments come in one of its house colors.

And there seem to be about 2 for each color and 12 in total. Do I need to tell you which house each one belongs to?

98. Hang these ornaments on your tree of Harry Potter and his friends.

These baubles depict Harry, Ron, and Hermione on broomsticks. Got to love these.

99. How about a stocking like this for a magical Christmas?

Like the ornament set, this too, might've been around before the movies came out. But it certainly fits the magical mood to say the least.

Sure it's just the train station at Hogwarts. But it's certainly a delightful design. I'll take it.

Hogwarts Teacher Evaluations by Albus Dumbledore

Dumbledore's_speech_at_the_Great_Hall_in_1996

Professors, due to parental complaints which should remain nameless, I think the time has come that we put in some accountability system in place through introducing teacher evaluations. You shall receive yours through owl post which contains both my positive and negative observations as well as areas for improvement. Any questions, comments, and concerns, send an owl to my office. Teachers in previous years would be accounted for as well because our standards have really gone down when you have to hire a new Defense Against the Dark Arts instructor every year. It’s a real pain in the ass. As Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, I take teacher accountability very serious, well, most of the time. Let’s please make this school a safe and quality learning environment for our students.

 

  1. Rubeus Hagrid

Department: Care of the Magical Creatures

Pro: Expertise in handling magical creatures makes him uniquely qualified for the position. Demonstrates better personal safety than his predecessor (who retired to spend time with his remaining limbs). Hippogriff lesson was a great example of how students shouldn’t be cocky to animals. Also, does it on a gamekeeper’s salary which works for our budget.

Con: Does not speak in clear or understandable English. Cries, a lot. Has spent considerable time away from class. Once walked off to the Forbidden Forest for most of the lesson and returned with a black eye which went completely unexplained. Had students buy books that will attack them. Hippogriff incident resulted in a student being attacked as well as a huge mess on our hands (since the boy’s dad was a school board member). Can’t be trusted with a secret. Doesn’t know how to spell. Has a preference for very dangerous creatures, which he considers “cute” and tends to put their well-being over other people’s safety. Often puts students in harm’s way in his lessons plans (making our school prone to lawsuits). Then there’s the issue of him being expelled in his 3rd year (though we know the truth behind that). Sometimes even the students who like him best couldn’t be in the class longer than necessary.

Areas/Suggestions for Improvement: Don’t make students buy books that would attack them. Don’t let students fly around unsupervised on hippogriffs. Restrict your curriculum to creatures you know how to care for. Or better yet, anything that’s not a walking death trap. Also if a student is being rude, just send them to the office (though to be fair, the boy did have it coming).

Grade: C, not the worst person for the job but there’s plenty of room for improvement.

 

  1. Cuthbert Binns

Department: History of Magic

Pro: Knows how to make an entrance such as through the blackboard. Also, keeping him around as a ghost teacher saves money on hiring as well as faculty room and board costs.

Con: His Chamber of Secrets lesson was perhaps the only time students were known to stay awake for, which he insists can’t possibly be real. Has a reputation for being notoriously boring that most of his students fall asleep 5 minutes into class, which he doesn’t address in any way. Doesn’t help that students don’t really pay attention to his class very much. Seems surprised and irritated when asked a history related question. Does not know any of his students’ names, even those he’s known for years. May not be aware that he’s been dead for years. Might’ve failed to evacuate classroom during fire and possibly slept through the deaths of several students. Is so absent-minded that he’s amazed to find his class full of students.

Areas/Suggestions for Improvement: Either try being livelier or move on, as in beyond the veil. Also, you should know there is more to history than just the Goblin Wars. In addition, I would recommend you take a course in fire safety if that’s possible.

Grade: D-, you should’ve been fired a long time ago, whenever that was. Not I’m not sure if that’s possible since having you around does save a ton of money not having to pay for a history teacher.

 

  1. Severus Snape

Department: Potions/Defense Against the Dark Arts

Pro: Is a wizarding genius who’s well-versed in all magical subjects. Demonstrates exemplary loyalty to this institution, making him well suited for performing tasks well beyond any wizard’s call of duty. Has people’s best interests at heart and can be the kind of guy you’d need on your side to win in a fight. Has shown to be quite protective toward students at times, including ones he’s known openly resent.

Con: Has a shady past which doesn’t endear him to his colleagues who just don’t understand his intentions (though he was right to keep some details confidential). Doesn’t really care enough about his students to teach them properly (though some students have done well when not under his observation. So he can be a damn good teacher when he wants to be). Has a reputation for showing favoritism to some of his Slytherin students while berating, insulting, threatening, and humiliating kids he doesn’t like which sometimes hinders their education. One case in particular revolved around a Gryffindor boy because his mom rejected him in favor of a guy who bullied him in school (with the boy not knowing the full story until years later). Subjected the boy in question to read various school reports about his dad’s days as a troublemaker as a punishment. Another has him refusing to call on a female student despite her hand being raised but took points away from Gryffindor due to her being “an insufferable know-it-all.” Reduced a second boy to an occasional nervous wreck for a few years. Has not only ignored bullying, but also actively encouraged it. Can’t seem to let go of his grudges toward boyhood enemies and move on with his life. Despite stoic demeanor, can get angry with the drop of a hat. “Accidentally” outed a colleague as a werewolf out of spite in an attempt to get him fired. Though he had a rather rough life, he shows very little compassion and understanding for other people’s suffering or any capability to see things differently.

Areas/Suggestions for Improvement: Understand that you can’t take points away from a house just because a girl raised her hand for some time. Sure she may be an “insufferable know-it-all” but that’s not how the point system works. Treat all students with respect and be nice to them, no matter how much you wanted to bang their mom or how much their dad was a dick. Maybe cool down in the staff lounge between periods or perhaps attend an anger management class hosted by the Room or Requirement. Don’t take your bitterness on your students about being denied a DADA position each year, your miserable childhood, or inadvertently causing the death of your true love. Your classroom is not the place for it.

Grade: B+, you can be a great teacher if you just try to improve your personality or at least find a way to let go of your past. I can recommend a great therapist you can visit during the summer. Also, try to make an effort to improve your social skills.

 

  1. Sibyl Trelawney

Department: Divination

Pro: Can actually predict the future and was eventually proven to be right much of the time (especially that one time). Then again, predicting the future is a tricky thing.

Con: Fancies herself as a great seer “possessed of the Inner Eye” though is often seen as a fraud who makes up nonsensical prophecies on the spot whether she’s right or not. Is so overly weird that students don’t take her seriously. May not actually know how predictions work or may give the wrong interpretations. At any rate, something’s not right with her. Insists students buy a Divination textbook despite thinking that books are useless. Classroom is almost always filled with smoke. Drinks a lot. Has a tendency to predict deaths of students at least once a year, including one who watched his own parents die. Best student in the history of this school left mid-class and never returned.

Areas/Suggestions for Improvement: If you’re not using textbooks don’t insist students to buy them. Keep the death predictions to yourself since these are children. Also, it would be best to give a little more clarity on predicting the future since your prophecies may come true but not in the way you interpret them. Put more focus and organization in your lessons.

Grade: C-, we might need to bring in someone to help you with your course load. He’ll only be half horse. Understand? Because if I didn’t keep you here for your personal safety (due to your one major prophecy), I would’ve sent you packing on the spot.

 

  1. Minerva McGonagall

Department: Transfiguration

Pro: She is an exceptional and powerful witch in her field as well as a stern but fair teacher. Takes no crap from anyone and is very protective of her students for whom she’s willing to fight to the death for. But is also kindly and is seen by her students as very trustworthy as well as inspires the utmost respect. Never afraid to speak her mind and is supportive to colleagues. Is always the one teacher students go to for help even though she’d scold them since she’ll assist them whenever they need it. High expectations and project-based approach allow students to try and make mistakes in their learning.

Con: Her love of Quidditch might soften her disciplinarian skills occasionally. Or when it comes to students tormenting a teacher she simply doesn’t respect. Does not like dirty cowards. Also does not take it well when Slytherin wins the Quidditch Cup.

Areas/Suggestions for Improvement: There’s very little to say here.

Grade: A+, you’re the best teacher at this school.

 

  1. Pomona Sprout

Department: Herbology

Pro: Doesn’t mind getting dirty when dealing with dangerous plants. Is cheerful and fair to her students. Can handle tough and dangerous situations without much fuss. Teaching environment can make even the most shy students shine by putting them at ease while challenging them to do their best.

Con: Has been known to track mud in the Great Hall.

Areas/Suggestions for Improvement: When it comes to the growing mandrakes, may I suggest buying some Muggle noise blocking headphones? Or magically noise blocking earmuffs? Also, clean yourself up before you enter into the Great Hall.

Grade: A, your mandrake were a great asset to us during the Chamber of Secrets incident.

 

  1. Gilderoy Lockhart

Department: Defense Against the Dark Arts

Pro: He’s written a lot of books on Defense Against the Dark Arts as well as facing against dangerous creatures and is quite charming. Girls seem to like him.

Con: Doesn’t live up to this hype once in the classroom. Students have found him incompetent and untalented as well as vain and egotistical. Is later exposed as a fraud as well as stealing stories from others before subjecting them to memory charms. Despite being DADA teacher, has proven to be utterly useless during the Chamber of Secrets crisis and is willing to let a student die to save his own skin. Hell, he even deboned a student’s broken arm after a Quidditch accident as well as ran out of the classroom during a pixie infestation. Colleagues unanimously detest him as well as students who can see past his foppish good looks. Even attempted to erase two students’ memories.

Areas/Suggestions for Improvement: How about actually studying Defense Against the Dark Arts before deciding to teach them. Also, don’t try to use students to enhance your own vanity. And stay away from broken wands. And please, don’t attempt to use magic to heal a student’s injuries, that’s Madam Pomphrey’s job and she hates you.

Grade: F, then again this job didn’t have many takers. Besides, I knew he was a fraud when I hired him because I knew some of his victims personally. I only invited him to teach just to expose him and he only took the job because Harry Potter was a student there. So having the chance to “train” another celebrity was an offer he couldn’t refuse.Luckily, since you fell on your own sword, I didn’t have to fire you. Enjoy your stay at St. Mungo’s indefinitely.

 

  1. Dolores Umbridge

Department: Defense Against the Dark Arts

Pro: The Ministry of Magic certainly thinks very highly of her and seems to boast a great resume. Her office seems rather well decorated. Acts like a kindly old aunt or grandmother.

Con: Her persona is only a thin veneer covering government corruption at its worst. Once at Hogwarts, she wasted no time turning the school into her own personal fiefdom and running it as a sugar-coated dictator. Forces tyrannical laws on the school to get her own way. Feels that she’s always right and wants her students to just shut up and agree with her. Has been shown to be very abusive toward any student who disagree with her even in the classroom. Speaks to students in a very condescending tone as she views them as her inferiors. Her detentions consist of them writing a sentence several times in their own blood with quills that cut into skin on the backs of their hands. In fact, she relishes in torture. Was so useless teaching her designated subject that students formed their own DADA class in the Room of Requirement as Dumbledore’s Army. Frequently interrupts people with a fake cough. Had Trelawney dismissed from her job without my authorization and later deposed and replaced me as headmaster. There she formed a Inquistorial Squad of Slytherin students as well as used the House Cup Competiton to encourage pupils to report on others. Other than that, almost all school order went to hell since most faculty and staff hated her so much. Has a hatred for centaurs, giants, Muggles, Muggle-borns, half-bloods, and others. Hates children, too. Is willing to condemn a student in the face of all justice and logic, even if it means him using underage magic in a situation she clearly set up in an attempt to silence him on a traumatizing incident he personally witnessed. Participated in an unprovoked attack on two teachers which left one of them in need of serious medical attention. Loves to inflict pain and misery on everyone she can. Has a staggering lack of empathy for victims of her cruelty. Used an Unforgivable curse on one of her students as well as threatened to use Veritiserum as well. Is utterly useless against a herd of centaurs. Is almost universally hated by both students and staff. Shows signs of being a sociopath and a sadist.

Areas/Suggestions for Improvement: Sorry, but I highly recommend that you don’t torture the students. Also, don’t assume that your students are lying, especially if they know more about DADA and Lord Voldemort than you. Don’t anger centaurs.

Grade: F, if Cornelius Fudge didn’t make me hire her, I would’ve never had her at this school in the first place.

 

  1. Alastor “Mad Eye” Moody

Department: Defense Against the Dark Arts

Pro: Is a retired Auror and a good friend of mine so his qualifications are without question and he’s a man I can trust with students despite his eccentricities like his rampant paranoia. Expert in Charms, Transfiguration, Defensive Magic, Herbology, and Potions. Takes no slack from whiners but has a soft side as well as impresses those in his charge. Did a good demonstration on the Unforgivable Curses.

Con: Subscribes to the idea that once a Death Eater, always a Death Eater. Has a highly disagreeable temperament. Didn’t seem to be himself during his time at Hogwarts because he seemed to have a very large suitcase and tends to drink out of his hip flask every hour or so. Meanwhile, Snape has claimed that someone has been stealing from his ingredient stash to make polyjuice potion. Even Barty Crouch Sr. has some suspicions about him. Makes Slytherins and former Death Eaters very uneasy around him. His unconventional disciplinary methods like turning an obnoxious student into a ferret doesn’t uphold to school standards. Students might be learning the wrong lesson from him.

Areas/Suggestions for Improvement: Don’t use Transfiguration as a punishment to students. Try to cut down on drinking. Be nice to Slytherins, even if they are Death Eater children.

Grade: C+, occasionally effective but wasn’t quite himself in the end. Wonder what lessons these kids might be learning from him.

 

  1. Remus Lupin

Department: Defense Against the Dark Arts

Pro: Is an accomplished and skilled wizard with extensive knowledge of dark creatures as well as charismatic. Is pleasant, mild-mannered, and scholarly figure who genuinely cares about the children under his care and is generally-well liked. Was very great with the dementor attacks by calming down utterly traumatized children with chocolate and medicine. Is unfailingly kind and considerate toward everyone as well as somewhat saner than many of his colleagues. Very accessible to his students and actually teaches them what they need to know.

Con: Has a tendency to fall ill and be absent from class during the full moon, which has caused a lot of suspicion. Was willing to help an escaped fugitive on school grounds (who turned out to be innocent, but still). And can be a real monster whenever he forgets to take his medication.

Areas/Suggestions for Improvement: Perhaps subjecting your students and their parents to a werewolf awareness class might help explain you monthly absences. If only the Ministry would allow it.

Grade: A, if it weren’t for Snape outing you as a werewolf and the concerned parents freaking out, I would’ve kept you on. Seriously, your departure was a big loss for our school since you’re the best DADA teacher we’ve had in a long time.

 

  1. Fillius Flitwick

Department: Charms

Pro: Is one of the nicest teachers as well as cheerful and fair to his students. Great with spells and was once a dueling champion. Even teaches the school choir in his spare time. Gentle demeanor and fierce abilities combine to create a positive learning environment. Also demonstrates great patience.

Con: Has a tendency being victimized by someone’s spell going awry. Classroom often filled with bangs, explosions, and other frightening results of miscast spells.Sometimes can even be sent flying across the classroom. Despite teaching for a long time, does not consider that Ravenclaw’s diadem was in the Room of Requirement for years. Also teaching the front doors to recognize Sirius Black and to instantly lock down if he tries to break in once more has one gaping hole. Also has altered appearance considerably since the Chamber of Secrets incident.

Areas/Suggestions for Improvement: Try to hold your ground. Other than that, I don’t know what else to recommend.

Grade: A, truly an exemplary teacher if there ever was one as well as helps that your subject is among the most important.

 

  1. Rolanda Hooch

Department: Flying

Pro: Is rather stern and impartial as well as can teach students how to fly on brooms.

Con: Spent a considerable amount of time leaving her students unsupervised which resulted in a bullying incident that wouldn’t have happened under her watch. Also expulsion for flying a broom without her permission? Really?

Areas/Suggestions for Improvement: Maybe try being less strict, especially since you went gaga over one student’s new Firebolt. Also, if you want to go for a pee do it between periods, not during class (especially if there are Slytherins present).

Grade: B, not bad, but you probably have an easy teaching job anyway.

 

  1. Quinirinus Quirrell

Department: Muggle Studies/Defense Against the Dark Arts

Pro: He’s a fine teacher while studying from books and was known to have a brilliant mind. Took a year off to get some firsthand experience. Can also be quite perfectly benevolent or so it seems. Warned staff and students about a troll in the dungeon on Halloween.

Con: Was never the same after his European travels though God only knows what went on during that time. But since he has become perpetually nervous as well as developed a stutter and nervous tics. Seems to be scared of his own students as well as his own subject and might come across as incompetent and inconfident. Snape thinks he might be after the Philosopher’s Stone in the basement. Troll was actually terrorizing a student in the girls’ bathroom. Might’ve nearly thrown a student off his broom during a Quidditch match, too. Then there’s the unicorns being slaughtered in the Forbidden Forest since he returned from his European vacation. And who knows what he has under that purple turban of his.

Areas/Suggestions for Improvement: How about building some self-esteem? Also, perhaps you can stop stuttering. And can you show me the back of your head?

Grade: C, teaching is so-so, but you should not try to expose students to danger.

 

  1. Horace Slughorn

Department: Potions

Pro: Expert enough in potions that I dragged the man out of a 15 year retirement. A Slytherin who is not obsessed with blood purity and takes more to enlightened self-interest. Is willing to help his most favored students succeed. Doesn’t bully or abuse his students which makes him quite serviceable that some students demonstrated such aptitude for the first time. Is an expert fighter and extremely talented wizard.

Con: Plays favorites with his students and singles out those who are famous or well-connected for special treatment. Can be somewhat dismissive to those who fail to catch his attention. Not so above the muggle-born prejudice though he tries to prove he’s not. Also, he once discussed the idea of horcruxes with the wrong Slytherin student. Thinks students he’s helped owes him a favor though he tends to be too lazy to take advantage of this beyond asking for free concert tickets and sweets. In addition, vicarious ambition does have a dark side.

Areas/Suggestions for Improvement: Try not to see muggle-borns as significantly less talented as their pureblood counterparts since you have had exceptional muggle born students before. Oh, and sometimes it helps to keep some lessons to yourself, especially if the student asking the question happens to be descended from Salazar Slytherin as well as has the potential to become one of the most notorious dark wizards of our time.

Grade: B-, though you are a great teacher that I had to drag out of retirement, it was worth it. However, I’m never going to let you live your horcrux explanation to Riddle down. Never.

 

  1. Firenze

Department: Divination

Pro: Never says a single harsh word to anyone. Seems more knowledgeable in his field than Trelawney at times and calls her out on her methods. Is more friendly to humans than some of his kind and in his herd. Can take some insulting comment rather well than those in his species. At least honest in acknowledging that Divination is inexact and open to interpretation, with his brand being based on stargazing.

Con: Has a view and perspective that’s hard for students to understand. Also, is the subject of disparaging comments from many parents on letting a half horse man teaching a class.

Areas/Suggestions for Improvement: Perhaps trying to explain the centaur Divination point of view to your students might be better. Also, maybe you should do something to raise centaur awareness so parents would be more comfortable with you.

Grade: A, I was right about you being an “acceptable” replacement though Umbridge failed to get the joke.

 

16. Wilhelmina Grubbly-Plank

Department: Care of the Magical Creatures (substitute basis)

Pro: Lessons are often age appropriate and is not prone to outbursts. Also, doesn’t risks any of her limbs for the sake of creature education. Threstral lesson was good and highly informative. Even praises Hagrid on his threstral care. Liked by everyone and even trusted to treat owls. Overall is a competent teacher who makes her lessons enjoyable to students

Con: Hiring her to teach the subject permanently with Hagrid wouldn’t be cheap. Also, there is some worth in teaching about more dangerous creatures though it’s generally not advisable. And she smokes a pipe in front of the kids.

Areas/Suggestions for Improvement: Can’t think of anything save perhaps quitting smoking. Really doesn’t set a great example to the students.

Grade: A-, sorry we can’t hire you on a permanent basis, but it’s just on in our budget. Besides, Hagrid only earns a gamekeeper’s salary anyway.

 

17. Silvanus Kettleburn

Department: Care of the Magical Creatures

Pro: Had great affection from the staff and students during his career. Displayed great enthusiasm for his subject. Also active in student theater.

Con: Is an occasionally reckless man whose great love of the dangerous magical creatures he studied and looked after often resulted in serious injuries not only to himself but also to others. Is prone to underestimating the risks involved to caring for creatures such as Occamys, Grindylows and Fire Crabs. This led to no fewer than 62 probation periods, a record that still stands. Once set off a major fire in the Great Hall after enchanting an Ashwinder to play the Worm in “The Fountain of Fair Fortune.” Also, visits dragon sanctuaries in his spare time.

Areas/Suggestions for Improvement: Perhaps you can practice safety in your lessons because if you keep up with this, you might finish your career with an arm and half a leg. And those wooden prosthetics I gave you don’t come cheap, which you keep having set on fire during your visits to dragon sanctuaries.

Grade: C-, all your lessons should come with a public safety disclaimer like “Don’t Try this at Home.” Also, you might want to consider retiring before you end up killing yourself.

 

18. Irma Pince

Department: Library

Pro: Apparently, shows dedication to her job and does not take damaged books lightly.

Con: Has been known to be unpleasant to the students, especially if they’ve either brought food in the library or doodled in the books. One incidence had her yelling at two students as well as enchanting their things to chase them out as well as whack them over their heads repeatedly as they ran. Has placed dozens of curses on the books should they be mistreated, stolen, or vandalized. I myself even made such mistake by doodling in one and found the book trying to beat me on the head. But I still can’t guarantee whether I gotten off all the curses of Quidditch Through the Ages future readers might be holding. Has been very unhelpful to students and tends to scream at them.

Areas/Suggestions for Improvement: Though I’m aware of library policies, perhaps you should at least loosen up a bit because students are scared to death of you. Also remember students aren’t the only ones who read your precious library books.

Grade: B-, while I have to admire your dedication, you have some major personality issues.

 

Feast in the Great Hall with These Harry Potter Treats

hogwarts-vday

The wizarding world of Harry Potter has all kinds of food and places to eat. At Hogwarts, the Great Hall always has food magically prepared on one’s dish as well as a feast on both the start and end of the terms as well as on Halloween and Christmas. Sure the food may be prepared by house elves but they don’t talk about it much. Outside Hogwarts, you have places like the Leaky Cauldron and Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlor at Diagon Alley as well as a few in Hogsmeade like the Three Broomsticks Inn, the Hog’s Head (which is tended by Dumbledore’s brother), and Honeydukes Sweetshop. You also had the tea cart on the Hogwarts Express. As for cuisine, well, you have butterbeer, treacle tarts, pumpkin juice, chocolate frogs, Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans, and others. Sure some of the food might seem strange to us muggles, but when it comes to eating in the wizarding world, the scene isn’t as bad as in other fictional worlds. I mean what you’d see in Star Wars where some of the bars are filled with dirt bags and you don’t know what’s being served. And in the Hunger Games, once you’re outside the Capitol and the wealthy districts, large populations are basically starving. Nevertheless, as in other fandoms, there are plenty of fans who make Harry Potter inspired treats for their own themed parties. So for your reading pleasure, I bring you a treasure trove of magical Harry Potter treats.

  1. Nothing makes a Harry Potter party like cauldron cake pops.
I might've had cauldron cake pops in one of my Halloween treat posts. But these were made in the Harry Potter speciality.

2. In the wizarding world, it helps that croissants are shaped like hats.

Well, witches' hats anyway. Because apparently, people in the Harry Potter world wear hats like these despite that it would've made them prone to witch burnings in the 17th century.

3. If you loved the Prisoner of Azkaban, then you might take to a cake like this.

This is a cake depicting Harry riding Buckbeak. It's professionally made for display. But it's very well sculpted.

4. Those who might remember Hogsmeade might remember the Hog’s Head.

This is the cake of the Hog's Head. It's the bar in Hogsmeade that's run by Dumbledore's brother Aberforth. Apparently, they weren't on good terms.

5. For your Harry Potter delights, nothing makes such a treat than a Hogwarts cake.

Now this was certainly done by a professional and probably doesn't come cheap. Still, it's very amazing to look at if you ask me.

6. For those wizards who love chocolate, it doesn’t get any magical than this.

And even if you don't have a happy birthday, at least you won't have to worry about dementors coming. Because they can really bum a party.

7. For a lunch on the go, you can’t cast the wrong spell with a Harry Potter bento box.

I'm sure you'd have to microwave this before eating at lunch. But this is so cute.

8. Get yourself sorted for your Harry Potter party with some Sorting hat bread.

Okay, maybe bread might not bring out the Sorting Hat's best features. But this is quite creative regardless.

9. Speaking of the Sorting Hat, it helps if your surround it with cupcakes.

This is another professionally made cake. But I like the Harry Potter cupcakes surrounding it.

10. Now these are the perfect hotdog rolls for a Slytherin barbecue.

Because their symbol is a snake. Still, I'm not sure if any of the Slytherins had a hotdog, since Hogwarts is in Britain. But if Hogwarts existed in the US, they would.

11. Licorice wands always make a magically tasty treat.

Then again, I'm not a big fan of licorice. But I think this is quite creative to say the least.

12. When it comes to gingerbread architecture, it doesn’t get more amazing than Hogwarts.

I know it's on top of a cake. But this gingerbread Hogwarts is a wonder to look at.

13. When it comes to Hogwarts spirit, it always counts what’s on the inside.

And as you see, this cake may have white icing. But it has all the Hogwarts house colors inside.

14. If you love breadsticks, these broomsticks are just the ticket.

You might expect Hogwarts to serve breadsticks like these. Mostly because they resemble brooms. Get it?

15. Those who adore Dobby might enjoy a cake like this.

Cast a Magic Spell with These Harry Potter Craft Projects

Polyjuice_potion

As you may have seen so far, Harry Potter is wildly popular around the world. And like huge fans of Star Wars, Hunger Games, and the NFL, there are plenty of people who have their own brand of magic with their own Harry Potter craft projects. After all, if you’ve seen stuff on Pinterest and Etsy, you’re going to find out that there are fans that are way more obsessed than you. Nevertheless, at Hogwarts, while DIY projects aren’t really a thing, you do have Hermione making the Polyjuice potion for her, Harry, and Ron so they could disguise themselves as Slytherins and sneak into the common room to speak to Draco Malfoy. While this works to a point and the three got what they wanted, Hermione made a major mistake with adding a hair whom she thought was Slytherin student Millicent Bulstrode. However, it turned out to be her cat’s and she had to go to the hospital wing. Let’s just say the Polyjuice potion works well when you’re planning to disguise yourself as a person. However, doesn’t work well when you put a hair of a species that’s different than you. Nevertheless, it was a very funny moment in the series. So for your magical reading pleasure, here I give you a glimpse of all the enchanting Harry Potter craft projects.

  1. Curl up on your couch with your very own Hogwarts House quilt.

As any Potterhead would know, the horcruxes are Tom Riddle's diary, Marvolo Gaunt's ring, Slytherin's locket, Hufflepuff's cup, Ravenclaw's diadem, Harry Potter, and Nagini. I'm sure it's apparent for those who've read the books.

18. This Golden Snitch necklace will open at the close.

Or so it seems like it since it looks as if the clasps are in the center. Still, not sure why they'd have a Golden Snitch in Quidditch in the first place other than it being a quick way to end a match.

19. If you want to go back an hour this spring, you might need a time turner necklace.

Again, while Dumbledore says that magic can't bring back the dead, somehow Harry and Hermione used a time turner to bring back Buckbeak and help Sirius Black escape. Yes, it's kind of confusing.

28. When it comes to receiving a word from home, nobody wants to get a howler.

A howler is a letter in the wizarding world in which the sender yells at the recipient. Ron gets one from his mom in Book 2 after he and Harry took the Mr. Weasley's flying car to Hogwarts which later got them entangled in the Whomping Willow.

However, since this is a replica, you shouldn't have to worry about the goblins wanting it. And they're pretty greedy about their stuff. I mean they didn't take it very well when Godric Gryffindor's sword was taken from them.

Diagon Alley Worthy Harry Potter Merchandise

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001) (Screengrab)

In the world of Harry Potter, there are all kinds of places to shop. There’s Diagon Alley which sells a lot of stuff for young witches and wizards preparing for their first or subsequent year of Hogwarts as well as for other wizarding needs. There’s Knockturn Alley for stuff pertaining to the Dark Arts and flesh eating slug repellant, but you don’t want to go there. Then there’s Hogsmeade which is a wizard village that has some restaurants and tourist stuff. Oh, and later on, Fred and George start a joke shop called Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes. Of course, here in the muggle real world we must toil, Harry Potter has become such a smash hit with 7 books and 8 movies that it has made scores of money on merchandise. Whether the beneficiaries be J. K. Rowling, Warner Brothers, Amazon, companies, or some random people on Etsy. And let’s just say there are all kinds of Harry Potter merchandise out there like Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans, action figures, T-shirts, house banners, and the like. But I decided to dedicate my post to some of the ridiculous Harry Potter stuff out there that might have some unfortunate implications. So for your reading pleasure, I give you this.

  1. Show your support for the Dark Lord with this dark mark tattoo decal.
Of course, unlike the real dark marks in the series, it actually comes off. But c'mon, it's basically a symbol of a wizard terrorist organization for God's sake.

2. This pair of underwear will show that you’ll go sleazy for Ronald Weasley.

Of course, anyone who wears this might want to be wary of Hermione Granger. Take a cue what happened to what she did when Ron dated Lavender Brown in Book 6. It wasn't pretty.

3. If you see yourself a Ravenclaw, you might want Rowena’s diadem of your very own.

Note that it has a tragic provenance since it was stolen by her daughter who ended up in a murder-suicide with the Bloody Baron. Also contains a fragment of Voldemort's soul.

5. There’s nothing that brings eternal glory like a Triwizard Cup.

However, remember that it's also a portkey that could transport you and your co-champion to a cemetery to see the Dark Lord's resurrection. Oh, and if you're Cedric Diggory, you won't come out alive.

6. If you’re into Harry Potter and takeout, these wand chopsticks are for you.

Made in Japan, by the way, which explains a lot. And I thought lightsaber chopsticks were crazy. I mean wands are for magic, not eating utensils.

10. Assume the form of someone else with this Polyjuice potion flask.

I don't think you can make Polyjuice potion in real life. However, if you can, make sure you don't put any animal hair in it before consumption. Hermione learned this the hard way.

13. Those who have a fascination with the dark arts or Deathly Hallows might adore this Marvolo Gaunt ring.

It's a horcrux that used to contain a Resurrection Stone. However, when Dumbledore wore it, it withered his hand and led him to seek assisted suicide. Hey, it was to save Draco Malfoy's life, too.

17. For a real broomstick riding experience, you can’t go wrong with a Nimbus 2000 vibrating broom.

23. Nothing makes a sweeter rub down than some Butterbeer massage oil.

Because nothing makes you and your lover more attractive than smelling like you've just come out of the Three Bromsticks at Hogsmeade. And I'm sure that's a hotel and bar where they serve alcoholic beverages to teenagers. Then again, they're British, but still.

46. Ensnare a crush to desire you with a bottle of Amortentia.

I don't see anything wrong with this since I know it's not going to work being made by muggles on Etsy. But in the wizarding world, Amortentia is the most powerful love potion and like other love potions, it's Muggle equivalent are roofies. Seriously, love potions are date rape drugs. Look what happened to Ron when he ate some some chocolates from one of Harry's stalkers.

52. Of course, I couldn’t forget Tom Riddle’s diary.

You know the one he used to lure Ginny into the Chamber of Secrets. And the one Harry eventually stabbed in there. Of course, the Chamber of Secrets thing would've been avoided if Lucius just didn't sneak it in Ginny's basket.

Okay, it might not get you into Hogwarts because that place doesn't exist. But it will make $60 magically disappear from your wallet.

97. For coffee all you have to say is Espresso Patronum.

Uh, I don't think getting coffee works that way. However, this is pretty clever if you ask me.

98. Step into a world of magic with these Harry Potter high heeled shoes.

Yes, these are sparkly. But I'm not sure why these exist. Guess there's a Harry Potter nightclub around some corner.

99. When playing game of Quidditch you can’t go without these Hogwarts House Nike shoes.

Well, at least that makes more sense than Harry Potter high heels. Still, if I had a pair, I'd be afraid to get them dirty. They're also probably expensive as bloody hell.

100. Relive the Hogwarts experience with this porcelain replica of Hogwarts castle.

Now that seems to resemble a very expensive paperweight. Makes you wonder what they're going come up with when Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them comes out in June.

I Solemnly Swear I Am Up to No Good in These Magical Harry Potter Costumes

Sure it may only be March, but spring will soon be around the corner. And before you know it, the summer blockbuster  season will be upon us which spans from May to September. This year, three major franchises will soon have a new release for the box office. Two are comic book superhero movies while the other is a Harry Potter spin-off. Nevertheless, despite what the critics might say, each one is bound to do well at the box office as well as make a pretty profit for Warner Brothers and Disney. Because these are franchises that people grew up with.

What began as a 7 part book series released from the late 90s to the late 2000s, this J. K. Rowling coming of age story about an orphaned boy wizard who gets caught up in extraordinary circumstances has taken the world by storm. Growing up, I remember how each Harry Potter book or movie release was a big freaking deal. I mean people would dress up and line up for such events as well as speculate which major character was going to die in the later books. Nevertheless, as we all know, Harry Potter is an orphan boy wizard who attends Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. However, he’s also a major name in the wizarding world as “the Boy Who Lived” after surviving an attempt on his life by Lord Voldemort when he was a baby. Of course, he didn’t know any of this until he was 11 years old since he spent the early part of his childhood living with his mom’s Muggle sister and her family known as the Dursleys who treated him like shit and made him sleep in a cupboard under the stairs. However, while Harry’s situation improves drastically when he goes to Hogwarts, he gets embroiled in wizarding intrigues either by choice or factors beyond his control.

As you’ve seen in the movies, the wizarding world of Harry Potter has an assortment of colorful characters as well as costumes. And I know that the ones I’ve shown above don’t do the series justice. You might see some characters wearing the same outfits all the time like Snape and McGonagall. Or in the same style like Albus Dumbledore. Some are known to dress rather well like Gilderoy Lockhart and Lucius Malfoy. While some end up having to make due with clothes that have them fall prey to embarrassment like Ron Weasley at the Yule Ball. And since the Harry Potter series has plenty of characters, you might see plenty of fans dressed in a variety of costumes whether it be at a geek convention or on Halloween. So for your magical reading pleasure, I give you a treasure trove of fans dressed in their Harry Potter costumes.

  1. Guess Azkaban isn’t as escape proof as it’s cracked up to be.
Apparently, Sirius Black just managed to break out of Azkaban. However, he doesn't have time to bathe since he has a rat to deal with at Hogwarts.

2. Looks like Harry is enjoying some quality time with Hedwig on the street.

You'd have to be mad to tell me that this isn't adorable. Seriously, I bet any Harry Potter fan would love to dress their baby as Hedwig if they could.

3. Okay, now I see why Professor Quirrell wears a turban.

Because he has Voldemort in the back of his head. Yet, he's not quite living and not quite dead.

4. Gilderoy Lockhart think he’s just his marvelous magical self.

However, when it comes to handing dangerous situations, he's pretty much a coward and a phony. I mean the guy can't protect his class against haywire Cornish pixies.

5. Guess this is what you’d call a magical Harry Potter family.

This is good. Love how the parents are dressed as Dumbledore and McGonagall. Love the Hedwig baby, too.

6. For a couple’s costume idea, you can always go with Ron and Hermione at the Yule Ball.

Sure they went to the dance with different people. But still, it was from then on we knew they'd be together. Nevertheless, that's a great imitation of Ron's disastrous dress robe.

7. If you’re in the mood for something different, you can go as Fleur Delacour.

This is of Fleur in her Beauxbatons uniform from Book 4. And yes, she's certainly lovely in it.

8. If you’re into the bad boys, then you’ll find this Tom Riddle a dream.

Keep in mind this guy opened the Chamber of Secrets and was responsible for killing a girl. Also, he'd later become one of the most notorious dark wizards of them all, Lord Voldemort.

9. Out of all the Hogwarts founders, it seems Rowena Ravenclaw has the most interest from fans.

Then again, she probably doesn't get a lot of description in the books and owned a fancy diadem. Still, that's a very nice dress.

10. If you think dressing as a Hogwarts student is too boring, you can always go as Nymphadora Tonks.

However, just don't call her Nymphadora. She doesn't like the name. Also, she has a penchant for older and hairier men if you know what I mean.

11. Looks like Professor Sprout and Mad Eye Moody are hitting it off.

Then again, if Moody's teaching at Hogwarts at this time, then it's probably not Moody. Then again, no one seemed to know the difference.

12. Apparently, Dumbledore appears to have had his beard trimmed.

Still, that woman makes a rather convincing McGonagall. Yet, I guess this guy decided to use his natural beard for Dumbledore.

13. Step right this way to board the Hogwarts Express.

You have to admit this is a very clever costume. Besides, it's unlikely she's going to run into anyone else dressed like her.

14. Someone seems to be ready for their first trip to Hogwarts.

This little one sure makes an adorable Harry Potter. Yeah, I know he's a little young to read the books. But I don't care.

15. When you’re dressed as Hedwig, it’s time to spread your wings.

Seems like Hedwig is a rather popular Harry Potter costume. Still, this is the first adult one on this post.

16. When it comes to bad girls, there’s no better beauty than Bellatrix Lestrange.

You may forget this, but she's married, even though she's really not that into her husband. Also, she's fanatically devoted to Voldemort and can be incredibly scary.

17. As a student at Beauxbatons, Fleur Delacour always rocks in blue.

Well, this is an older Fleur Delacour costume. Still, it's pretty close to the movies.

18. Don’t look now, but I think that’s the Honeydukes lady.

She was in the first book and doesn't seem to have a lot of time. However, this is a good costume idea if you ask me.

19. As we all know from Book 3, Harry’s patronus is a stag.

The woman is the stag in this one. The guy is Harry. Like the use of twigs for antlers though.

21. All this dementor wants is to give out some kisses.

Okay, this is a kissing booth anyone should steer clear from. I mean we all know a dementor's kiss sucks the soul out of you.

22. Bellatrix might be an evil, crazy witch, but she really knows how to dress.

Sure Bellatrix killed Sirius and drove Neville's parents to insanity. But she's not a witch to be reckoned with (unless you're Mrs. Weasley).

23. Seems like Bellatrix here is really rocking it with Professor Snape.

I'm sure this is a couple's costume idea. Least it helps that these characters usually wear the same things all the time in the movies.

24. Apparently, Ginny seems all decked out in her Quidditch robes.

For some reason, those who dress as Ginny usually wear her Quidditch outfit. Maybe that's to distinguish her from Hermione Granger.

25. Seems like this little mandrake could stand on its own two feet.

Sure it might be dangerous to hear its cries. But this is the most adorable little mandrake I've ever seen.

26. For eccentric blond girls, you might take to Luna Lovegood.

As you know, Luna Lovegood is from Ravenclaw and her dad seems like the closest thing to a wizard hippie. Love the glasses though.

27. For smart witches, you can never find anyone brighter than Hermione Granger.

Sure this girl's a redhead. But she's no Weasley. Because Hermione had almost the same style in the movies.

28. In Harry Potter, you wouldn’t want to run into this guy.

This is a dementor. When it's near, it fills the atmosphere with dread. When it kiss you, it takes your soul.

29. To win a game of Quidditch, it helps if you catch the Golden Snitch.

And it seems this guy used a ton of golden spray paint. Still, it's a clever costume.

30. Seems like Moaning Myrtle is a lonely little ghost.

Yes, I know that this Moaning Myrtle is blue. But she's a ghost as you know.

31. In a world of magical intrigue, nothing gets past these 3.

I think this might be my first post picture with Harry, Ron, and Hermione together. Still, these 3 kids are siblings. But the photo op is so cute.

32. The world of Harry Potter has the kind of magic that’s fun for the whole family.

Guess the parents are Dumbledore and McGonagall. The boys are Harry and Ron. And the girl is Luna. Love the Dumbledore beard though.

33. A bratty blond boy would always look nice dressed as Draco Malfoy.

Sure he might be a Hogwarts bully from Slytherin. But wait until Voldemort assigns him to kill Dumbledore in Book 6.

Sure he might be a Hogwarts bully from Slytherin. But wait until Voldemort assigns him to kill Dumbledore in Book 6. Okay, I’ll have to wait till his father hears about this.

34. Don’t have anything but homey clothes? How about dress as Molly Weasley?

Mrs. Weasley loves her family very much and will do anything for them. So if you try to kill her daughter, she will freaking murder you, Bellatrix.

35. Of course, you’re always welcome to share Moaning Myrtle’s toilet.

Because she's a ghost in a girl's bathroom. It's where she died after looking into the Basilisk from the Chamber of Secrets.

36. For babies, I suppose a Dobby costume is nice.

Dobby is a great costume for babies. Because Dobby is small and means well. Even if Dobby tends to be a bit misguided.

37. Seems like this little Hedwig is about to take flight.

Seems like this Hedwig costume is easy to make with the owl hat and wings. And it's so adorable.

38. When it comes to pink nightmares, no one does it better than Dolores Umbridge.

Sure she might be dressed like Jackie Kennedy. But she's a sadistic witch who'd force you to write in blood if she thinks you're lying.

39. Remember, you won’t be able to get in the Gryffindor common room until after the Fat Lady sings.

Well, this is the one from the 3rd movie. But yes, she's kind of a diva.

Well, this is the one from the 3rd movie. But yes, she’s kind of a diva.

40. For Divination, let me introduce you to Sibyl Trelawney.

Seems like this costume is worn by an actual teacher. Nevertheless, as far as Trelawney's effectiveness as a seer, it's up for debate. But she did get one prediction right as seen in Book 5.

41. For juicy Daily Prophet gossip, here’s the one and only Rita Skeeter.

Rita Skeeter is a rather sleazy character in Book 4. I mean when she interviewed Harry, she made a lot of shit up like him having a romance with Hermione. Take off the glasses, this could also work as an Effie Trinket costume.

42. When she wears her checkered shawl, Umbridge is on the warpath.

The reason why fans hate Umbridge so much is that she's an authority figure who makes other people's lives miserable. And in many ways, people might know someone like her, too.

43. In a family like this, it seems that the parents have gone to evil.

Yes, it's another Harry Potter family. But this time the parents are Voldemort and Bellatrix. And the kids consist of Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Hedwig.

44. As Transfiguration teacher and head of Gryffindor House, Professor McGonagall doesn’t put up with your shit.

And where would McGonagall be with her trademark green robe? She also transforms as a cat.

45. Seems like Harry really loves his owl.

And it looks like this baby is getting squeezed by a brother's hug. Still, it's so cute.

46. Guess Professor Sprout just uprooted a baby mandrake.

Well, Sprout is the Herbology teacher and thank God she was growing mandrakes when the Chamber of Secrets was opened. After all, a few students ended up petrified but none were killed.

47. Perhaps you’d like to see Trelawney in green.

Now this one seems more like her outfit from the movie. Nevertheless, Trelawney can be pretty weird at times.

48. No Harry Potter costume post would be complete without Harry’s parents.

Yes, they seem so happy together. However, you know these two have to die to kick off the series.

49. May I introduce you to the one and only Harry Clawter.

It's a cat that's dressed up as Harry Potter. But at least it won't mind having a room under the stairs.

Master has given Dobby a sock. Master has given him clothes. Therefore, Dobby is free.

51. Dumbledore seems to be observing the preparations to see if they’re in order.

Because you can't have a Hogwarts party without its headmaster Dumbledore. However, he seems to be overseeing a meeting for the Order of the Phoenix.

52. “Yer a wizard, Harry.”

Well, it's about time I had Hagrid on this post. After all, he's a rather important character. Also, this is cute.
