i’m thinking the spiked creature thing was the horntail

Posted by abby on November 19, 2008, 02:28 AM report to moderator

Yes, it was a brilliant concept for the Hungarian horntail, complete with contacts and teeth.

….I have nothing to say about the horse. I should get my head out of the gutter

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!

Whoops…make that “creative” not cerative. Crikey.

Oooowwwww!!! I loved the baby snitch!!
One day I want to have a kid just to be able to play around with him like this! Must be so fun!

Professor Potter

I think I like Bellatrix and Prof Trelawney the most. Very cool imitation, not just costume wise but their posture too!

Confederate Lady

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.

1st place inexperienced was a boggart taking the shape of a snake/reptile. Well done to all our winners!
