Great costumes! I wish I could make stuff like that.

I love the imagination that goes in behind all these costumes. It’s unreal. I <3 the fandom.

It’s totally worth looking at the ones that didn’t win in the image galleries: There’s a great Umbridge, a pretty darned good Tonks, and an adorable little kid in an entirely-knitted Harry costume.

Izzy, how do I find all of the other entries?

I loved the Horse Harry the best – complete with specs and scar! Next favourite was the bay mandrake.

The winner looks to me to be a chameleon and, although a fantastic costume, not sure what that has to do with harry? Don’t buy the boggart thing – you could make a costume of anything (an aeroplane, say, or a calendar on Friday the 13th) and say it was the shape of someone’s boggart! Where in HP was anyone’s boggart a reptile?

well done to all – fantatsic creativity!

I agree with pottershrink. I loved the baby mandrake and snitch!!!! How precious. And the horse Harry and possibly Hermione was fantastic!

HOLY FLOBBERWORM THESE ARE AMAZING! At the baby golden snitch I literally started clapping at my computer and yelling, “AWWWWWWWW!” And the Horsey Potter is EPIC. And of course the Horntail. Ooh, and the Mandrake was really cute too! THEY ARE ALL AMAZING.

Well, they were all great, but the only criteria for the “experienced” category looks like it was “dress all in black”.
