Most of the pieces for this Harry Potter costume can be picked up for a couple of bucks from the local 2nd hand shop, making it both eco-friendly and inexpensive.
Though I’m calling it a Harry Potter costume, it could also be easily used for Ron or Hermione. It can also be used for a character from another house, such as Draco, by altering the colors used.
**UPDATE: I later found a better way to do the tie. Take a 2nd hand red tie and putting diagonal strips of masking tape across it. Then spray paint it gold. When it’s dry, peel off the masking tape to reveal the red underneath, so it has perfect alternating stripes of red of gold. (Looks much better than the tie in this video)Enjoy this post?
