Pottermore has released the first photos of the cast in character from the Harry Potter and The Cursed Child play. More characters will be revealed in the coming days, but they kicked things off with a bang by featuring Harry, Ginny and Albus Potter as played by Jamie Parker, Poppy Miller and Sam Clemmett respectively.

As you’ll see in the individual characters shots below, the look of each character is pretty fantastic—especially Harry. Plus, Albus Severus is sporting a sweet new Hogwarts robe. [click to continue…]


“It’s okay, mommy can fix this…”

Imgur user mommybrittaney’s son banged his head and felt embarrassed by the resulting scratch, so there was only one thing to do:

“I was doing laundry and he decided the pile of clothes in his room looked too fun for him not to jump on. So he jumped and slipped and hit his head on the edge of the bed frame,” mommybrittaney wrote in the comments.

“He was so embarrassed about his scratch and didn’t want to leave the house and be seen with it that dressing him up as Harry Potter was my first instinct.”

With the help of a washable marker and a pair of glasses, mommybrittaney turned that cut into cosplay. Check out more pics below.

There are a billion-billion tweets sent on Twitter each and every day, but most of it is fluff. What we had for lunch, what we did on Friday night, which TV show we’re… well, not watching, because we’re too busy tweeting about it to pay attention to what’s on the screen.

But on May 11th, Harry Potter fan Kate, aka @AlwaysJLover on Twitter, sent a tweet to J.K. Rowling that was, well, very personal…

What happens when two Harry Potter geeks fall in love, plan a tasteful themed wedding, and find just the right photographer?

Magic of course.

Cassie and Lewis Byrom‘s whimsical wedding took place at the Manchester Town Hall, and photographer Kelly Clarke captured the surreal beauty of the event. I have to say, it’s one of the most gorgeous nerdy weddings we’ve ever seen.

These officially licensed Harry Potter corsets aren’t SERIOUS corsets, but they are a looot more affordable. Perfect for a creative cosplay on a budget.

Although they have lacing in the back (and a privacy panel – thank you very much whoever designed these), they also have a zipper on the side. A zipper on a corset? Well, yes. It’s not a srs corset, people. You’re not going to do waist training in this. It has plastic boning. But the zipper on the side means we can get in this without requiring another human’s intervention or, you know, magic.

The Harry Potter corsets are available in Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin styles. Check out more pics below.

While Catherine Elhoffer usually makes geeky women’s apparel, she took a little detour into the men’s department with these two custom-made vests.

The Gryffindor vest looks gorgeous with its Silk Dupioni fabric and lion buttons while the other vest is ready for Dapper Day. It’s based on a Disney character that some people find to be pretty foxy.

As always, I’m impressed. Check out more details below.

Polyjuice potion perhaps?

Who could forget Daniel Radcliffe’s adorable rosy cheeks and dimples when he first became Harry Potter?

She has an array of amazing Harry Potter-themed pics, and you can catch all of them below.

When the Harry Potter Gryffindor girls cardigan was released last year, I hoped that the other Hogwarts houses wouldn’t be too far behind. They were a little later than I thought, but they’re here now and that’s what matters.

New cardigans for Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin are now available and each one features the House crest and colors. They run in sizes xs to 3x, so they should fit students and fans of all sizes.
