Costume Information

Time Taken : couple of months

Was just far easier to group the 4 ghosts together as they're all being made for my friends :)

The Hogwarts ghosts have taken their inspiration from the simplified 'Potterpuffs' designed. However we all sat down in the pub to design each individual costume so they're our own design and reflect the person who will be cosplaying them.

We also took into account the facts from each of the ghosts stories that we knew. For instance the Grey Lady was on the run with Ravenclaw's diadem when the Bloody Baron killed her, so it made sense for her to have a travelling cloak etc.

This is part of a Harry Potter Founders Era Group for Midlands MCM Expo 2013 :)
