I, too, would like a shot at the costume department! WHY does Dumbledore always wear the same flippin’ grey robes?? He’s supposed to be a “bit of a dandy,” according to Jo. AND WHERE ARE HIS HALF-MOON SPECTACLES????? They were missing in all but one scene of “Phoenix,” too! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

umm…yea seen these all before…and whats the point of these stills again? LOL if they release more pics, which they probably will since we have to wait till june/july, I can make a comic book version of the movie with my own captions :)

These are definately not new except their high- res and wider angle images. Anyway, I too keen on the costumes and hair styles in the film. the opal necklace looks weird and the lighting looks horrible. What are the trio wearing and ron looks kinda chubby and their all standing really awkward. Anyway, so-so.

I’ve seen most of these before – but I love the high-res versions.

The kids aren’t wearing robes because it was a Hogsmeade weekend, and they rarely wear robes on the weekends – when the Quidditch matches also take place.

Snape’s hair was only ever seen as “greasy” by the students – notice when Jo wrote the Spinners End chapter and the Malfoy Manor chapter that no mention of his hair being greasy was ever made. This is one of those things that must be taken with a grain of salt because it is usually seen from Harry’s perspective.

AR has lost some weight recently, so of course he looks better! And he’s always HOT!

It’s obvious that when Sue entitled this post “New High Res … Photos,” she meant that the photos are available in High Res from WB for the first time, not that we’ve never seen them before. So quit yer whinin’, people. :-)

As for the funky color of the opals — Snape has cast a spell on them, so they might be glowing for that reason as well.

No, most opals aren’t dark. Most of them are much lighter than the the ones in the necklace. Opal is my birthstone so I’ve looked at a lot of opal jewelry in my life time.

I really liked these photos. I hope WB keeps them coming!

YES! Thank you soo…. much WB! I doubt this will hold me over until the premiere, though. I’ll probably be in maximum potter insanity mode for the first half of this new year!

Bonnie looks soooo pretty!

I wish we’d get something different though. We’ve had three trailers, what about new HBP merchandise, or POSTERS or something? I need to update my OOTP posters with more.
