Congratulations to all the winners!
WOW…such creativity! Congrats to all the winners! Having grown up with horses, I must say the HP horse is my most cerative favorite. LOVE the lightening scar on the horse! I’m also very partial to the baby mandrake and baby snitch – too precious! Well done, everyone!
WOW. I am very impressed! I am a professional Costumer/Seamstress, and I am VERY impressed. Especially with the first one…looks to me like a Chameleon, but I’m sure my guess is as good as the next. Creative, imaginative and especially, as Professor Potter observed, “not just costume wise but their posture, too!” That can be a big part of the overall effect! ‘Bellatrix’ was also awesome. Especially the Leatherwork [?]. A lot of work went in to each and every one, and they ALL deserve a big “round of applause!” Well done.
