If you are looking for fancy dress ideas and you are a huge fan of the Harry Potter collection of books and films, you could decide to dress up as one of the many female characters that feature in both the books and films.
You could decide do create a Halloween fancy dress costume so that you resemble the female friend of the main character of the whole saga â namely Hermione Granger. She features in all the books and her look would be fairly easy to put together.
The Things You Need For A Hermione Granger Fancy Dress Costume
The character of Hermione has fairly ordinary hair. This could have something to do with the fact that she is a muggles so there isn't anything too distinctive about the whole look. She has shoulder length hair that has a little curl in it. This should be quite straight forward to replicate if you have the same colour and texture of hair yourself. Add a few hair curlers to straight hair in order to re-create the look. If you have short hair or it is not the right colour, then you can easily purchase a wig either from your local department store or you will find a great selection online.
The Accessories â The Books â The Wand â The Jewellery
Hermione is a straight A student. She is a school swot so one of the items that she always has with her is a selection of school books. This is something that is easy to replicate. Take a couple of thick books and you will be transformed into the studious girl herself.
A wizard is nothing without a wand and Hermione is no exception. Just like Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and all the other students from Hogwarts School, she also got her wand from the wand maker Mr Ollivander in Diagon Alley. You will not have to travel so far in order to get one for yourself. If you are on a budget, you could conjure one up from a discarded tree branch or you could find cheap and cheerful wands for sale online.
One of the most interesting pieces of jewellery that we see in the Harry Potter movies is the time turner necklace. This appeared in the third book and film. It was given to Hermione by Professor McGonagall so that she could get to all the lessons that she needed to during the course of the day. This would be a fabulous accessory to add to your Hermione Granger fancy dress costume.
The School Cloak & School Uniform
Hermione Granger is a member of Gryffindor House. This means that her cloak should reflect the house colours. This is done through the colour of the inner lining of the cloak as well as the Gryffindor House school crest.
The school uniform is made up of a simple gray skirt with a matching grey sweater and a white blouse underneath. This should be an easy ensemble to put together.
