Marauders-map-pendant

I solemnly swear that I just about died when I saw this teeny tiny Harry Potter Marauder’s map pendant. A truly marvelous wizard shop BeeHappyShop on Etsy makes the tiny locket by hand to actually hold a Hogwart’s Map inside!

The front of the locket is covered with a lense and the back is a thick paper with the words “I solemnly swear that I’m up to no good.” The pendant can be secured on it’s 19-inch silvery chain to keep close to your heart and hidden from professors.

After the break check out pics of the open locket and map.

Back in November we told you about the College of Wizardry, a live action role playing group of almost 200 members that pose as students, staff, ghosts and creatures of the Harry Potter Universe.

Unfortunately, the group has made an agreement with Warner Bros. to detach itself from the Harry Potter universe in future events, but they still want to hold epic larps in a setting that is inspired by the books.

The group currently rents out a castle in Poland but has recently set up an Indiegogo campaign to raise enough funds for future larps and maybe even the $1 million they need to buy and renovate this unbelievable castle in Poland as a permanent home base. It’s an ambitious goal, but imagine taking dark arts classes generic wizarding classes in an actual castle? Walking through those corridors for a 4 day long LARP event set in the most magical themed universe in existence might be the most exiting weekend of your life!

College of Wizardry explains what members can expect in the future:

“Here, long-flowing robes and dragontooth wands meet jeans and leather jackets. Magical theory is taught in old castles to students at home on iPhones, and while some wizarding families proudly trace their lineage back to famous magicians such as Morgana le Fey or the Oracles of Delphi, there are powerful sorcerers popping up in suburban Chicago and downtown Shanghai.”

I saw this new Harry Potter Gryffindor cardigan from Hot Topic and all I thought was, “Well, that’s just perfect”.

Seriously, cardigans are so much cooler these days. I’m used to cardigans being boring, itchy and generally something your mom made you wear when you were supposed to “look nice”.

Is it bad that I hope they make one for Slytherin?

I hate to be kitschy, but I’m totes in love with these totes by Etsy user Telahmarie. They really are adorable, unique and fun.

She’s got a number of different fandoms to choose from, so you you’re likely to find one that suits you. Personally, I’m torn between the 10th Doctor and R2 – oh and the sloth.

Head after the break to see more examples.

We can’t get enough geeky tattoos, and reader Nick Pena shared photos of his awesome ink with us. His Legend of Zelda tattoo is especially creative; it has Link’s Master Sword and shield as well as the three Marks of the Goddesses. The design and colors are beautiful. This was inked by Stephanie Flannery at Golden Rule Tattoo in Arizona.

hp infinity scarf

I can’t get over how cute this Harry Potter scarf by Etsy seller Nerd Alert Creations is. The cotton design features several symbols from the series including the Dark Mark, the Deathly Hallows symbol, the Knight Bus, the lightning scar, a Death Eater mask, and more. The cartoon-y design and bright colors aren’t necessarily what you think of when it comes to Harry Potter, but it totally works.

I’ll admit, $350 for a mei tai baby carrier is absurdly expensive. But you have to ask yourself: how badly do you want your child to get into Hogwarts? With these awesomely nerdy mei tais from ObiMama, you might even be able to influence the Sorting Hat.

Each little Hogwarts uniform comes complete with a silk tie and Irish linen. Check out the rest of the houses after the break…
