Well, as you know, I went second hand shopping as we needed Harry Potter costume items, and I didn't want to spend on full-priced items since I've spent a lot on these costumes already (BUT Still less than it is to buy them) I also spent a bit on feathers and noses and eyes.
So, what did we find there?
I found a shirt for Gideon (this tag was 50% off) It has a small spot on the collar in back which won't show with the robe on.
Plain shirt for me - I got the cheapest one there. Nothing fancy - again will be under the robe.
Skirt. Not completely pleated (sides are pleated), but good enough. It was far less than the one online I was looking at that I was worried might not fit right. Again - will be mostly under the robe, so it's fine.
The plain white feather boa was twice as thick as this and $14 (ow!) I got this and planned to cut off the feathers and leave the gold off. Gideon likes it, so I guess Hedwig found himself some bling. LOL! (Yes, they are real feathers)
Noses and eyes for Hedwig and Crookshanks. I know they aren't cat eyes (I actually have green cat eyes here) but the store bought Crookshanks had tan-ish regular eyes so... As for Hedwig I know he needs yellow eyes. :( They didn't have any at the store and I have only ONE here without a match. :(
I've started on the sweing for the head of Crookshanks but haven't gotten terribly far. Gideon's home sick today so it's just a relax and have fun with games sort of day.
Previous editions of my costuming saga (lol!)
and the one that started it all: Woohoo Harry Potter Adventure Tickets SECURED!
