harry potter ring 1

If I had to name two symbols that make me think of Harry Potter, they would be the Deathly Hallows symbol and the Boy Who Lived’s lightning shaped scar. This sterling silver ring by Etsy seller Think Up Jewel has both of those elements along with Harry’s spectacles. It’s perfect.

The Deathly Hallows ring is made to order, and turnaround time is 6-8 business days.

These beautiful Harry Potter dresses let you relive your glory days at Hogwarts. Each features fabric patterned with the crest of the house of your choosing. Since they’re custom made, you’ve also got a little room to customize choosing either a tank or skater style and the option of short sleeves or even longer or shorter hems.

map dress 1

Tumblr user permetstu decided to make a Marauder’s Map dress for LeakyCon. However, she didn’t try to get the iconic imagery from Harry Potter printed onto a dress. Instead, she made the dress and drew the map on by hand with fine point Sharpies. I’m not even kidding. All those tiny lines, all those letters – it’s all done by hand. Just the text on the front of the dress took three and a half hours. I’d love to see the pile of used Sharpies it took to complete this project.

GeekiesCollage

On Sunday the second annual Geekie Awards took place in Los Angeles, celebrating geek culture with 12 different categories. This year a new category was added that focused on the growing area of geek fashion. The Fashion and Armor category, presented by Vanichi Magazine, was added after awards creator and showrunner Kristen Nedopak saw the fashions people wore on the red carpet at last year’s event.

“As a female geek, I’ve never hidden the side of me that embraces being a woman, and that means dressing up or down when I please. ‘Geek Couture’ has grown tremendously in the last few years, and more women are realizing they can still be geeks and look beautiful too!” Nedopak told Fashionably Geek. “We’re seeing designers getting creative with the art of fashion in these genres, and we wanted to honor that in this year’s show.”

There were five nominees in the category specializing in armor, steampunk, corsetry, and more. The winner will receive a full feature fashion spread in an issue of Vanichi Magazine.

Find out who won and get a glimpse of all the nominees’ stylish, geeky products after the break!

hogwarts ties

Not up for a full on cosplay as a Hogwarts student from Harry Potter? Instead of assembling a school uniform you can wear a necklace that represents your house instead. Etsy seller Jewellery by Lizzie G has designed cute pendants from shrink plastic that feature striped ties from Hufflepuff, Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. I sort of want to wear one of each.

hedwig costume

LeakyCon took place in Florida last weekend, and while many fandoms had a presence, Harry Potter was in the spotlight. Though it wasn’t a huge convention (less than 5,000 attendees), there were still cosplayers being awesome. This Hedwig costume is a wonderful example of the creativity on display. I adore the wings.

marauders map hobo bag

The new Harry Potter Solemnly Swear Hobo Bag from Hot Topic lets you sling your Marauder’s Map over your shoulder when you’re out and about causing trouble.

One side reads “I solemnly swear I am up to no good” over a print of the map itself.

I have another one of their hobo slings and it’s a great little purse. Durable and definitely able to hold one or two wands and maps.
