Professor Dolores Umbridge - Harry Potter movies




This was a bit of fun, I always try to find a character that suits my age, size etc. I love to play baddies and boy was she a creepy baddie.

Once again fabric from ebay and a vintage dress pattern. I recycled Red Queens wig and added a white curl from Jiraiya's wig.
Awful pink cardi, shoes and bag - ebay again - so cheap, no-one else would have wanted them anyway!!

I made my wand from a bamboo skewer (for strength when you "swish and flick") and modelling clay. When it was dry I painted it with acrylics and varnished.

Thanks guys, I absolutely hate wearing pink. I decided to drive home from Midalnds Expo still wearing this pink dress - I ran out of petrol and had to get out at a garage to fill up. That was the most uncomfortable thing I have ever done!! i looked like I had escaped from somewhere!!
