I have a thing for school uniforms. They're just cute, what can I say! But I’m pretty sure this is the last school uniform costume I’ve done, though no promises for the future. The Hogwarts robe was the first thing I had ever sewn in my life. This was before the sewing lesson too. I got a pattern, got the fabric and winged it. Now I can sew robes/capes in my sleep. In the books, Cho was a total cry-baby, I liked her representation in the movies more though she didn't seem to say much. Either way, I'm Asian and I love when there's Asians in my fandoms. XD

Tie and scarf were bought at a costume shop in Gainesville, Florida. Regular white shirt of course. Initially I had tried to make the sweater myself out of fleece when I realized that wouldn't do and bought a knit sweater from Alivan's: http://www.alivans.com. Hmm, I know how to crochet, so now I need to learn to knit properly. Damn you, purling!

The robe I made twice. The first time without lining, the second time with lining. The skirt I made twice as well! The first time I made the pleated skirt I was tearing the hair out of my head. The second time I made the skirt I used a pattern drafted by Starfire Phoenix: http://www.starfirephoenix.net/hppoaskirttutorial.htm. I’m thinking the robe is sort of superfluous for me though since it’s always too hot wear. Sure, you need a robe in Britain, but not so much in the South. I might offer the robe up for sale.

Shoes and socks can be bought anywhere though I really like the Sorcerer Socks from Sock Dreams: http://www.sockdreams.com/products/knee-highs/sorcerer-socks. They're totally cute though not screen-accurate. They're always changing up the styles as the movies go on and at this point I think they've been wearing black tights as opposed to knee socks.


Oki's my familiar! XD
