Thanks to Naomi C for the link!

I’m normally sooooo loyal to the books but yeah for me silver does look better! Besides you can never find a good bronze yarn!

Haha, I love it! Although now I’ll feel awkward when I wear my blue-and-silver scarf. ;)

I obviously thinks the books are much better than the movies, but on this topic, i do prefer the look of blue and silver to the look of blue and bronze; bronze just isn’t an appealing color to me, and i don’t particularly feel like it goes well with the blue.

even though technically blue and bronze wins, i still pick blue and silver.

I actually don’t think of the movie colors as blue and silver but dark blue and light blue, and I tend to wear these with bronze/antique gold accessories when I want to dress up in my house’s colors.
But I’m planning a Rowena Ravenclaw cosplay and the thing is: how do you define “bronze”, exactly? At best, I’m looking for metallic brown fabric… the other houses have it easy! ;p

(Hate the movie crow mascot though)
