Gryffindor Bow Tie Top




Oh yes I did. 






  Last night was the premiere of the final Harry Potter movie and we had our tickets purchased last week. I realized yesterday afternoon that I needed something to wear to the harry potter premiere. So I got some cheap gold fabric, maroon paint, and some gray knit, and got to work!



I wasn't the only one who had the bright idea of dressing up last night. There were of course Harrys,  Rons, Hermiones, a Luna Lovegood, and even a Voldemort! There were also a few scantily clad girls who seemed to think that a naughty school girl's halloween costume passed as Harry Potter wear. Not so much. 





 Boyfriend is the real Harry Potter fan. He's the reason I got into the series at all. We were 11 when the first movie came out, the same age as all the characters (we're young'ens I know), so we got to grow up with them. Bittersweet to see it all end. 










See the tutorial for this top here:

I love it! The movie theater is too far away and I've turned into an old Mom who can't stay awake long enough to go to a midnight movie, but I'm a HP geek too. LOVED every book and have reread them again and again. When my babies were little, I read the books to them while I fed them. They didn't know the difference, but I did! Your shirt looks great and so perfect for the premiere!

Well, you know I love it ;-) I feel kind of depressed at Harry Potter being over . . . I grew up with it, too, and although I got sad when the books were done, now I'm remembering all over gone that it's really over! At least you have a cute top to help deal with the pain ;-)

I grew up with it as well, so of course, like you, I made a shirt for the finale (: I love yours!

Sara said...

That is such a great idea. The movie was awesome! I had to wait until tonight to see it. I can't stay up that late anymore.

Ashley Davis said...

Perfect idea! I wonder if I can pull off wearing this when I go see it next week or if that'd be awkward? ha!

This is so AWESOME! I loved the regular bow shirt and I love HP so this to me is amazing! You can be a super fan and stylish at the same time!

love it! And those photos of you two are great! I haven't seen the movie yet, I'm going to wait a bit and then go see it when the theatre isn't so crowded, but it's killing me to wait!
