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

I just spent the entire day reading OotP and I'm done. I'm... sad. Kind of. I donno. I could make a list of spoilerish opinions but I more feel like screaming and jumping around. It was quite good although I don't know if the ending satisfied me enough. Maybe I need to read it again. Eeps!

Okies, so this is what I've concluded that they wear, at least for the girls. ::grins::

-White long-sleeved button-down collared shirt
-Grey long-sleeved v-neck sweater with House colors lining the neck and a few inches above the bottom of the sweater
-Dark grey pleated skirt
-Grey knee socks
-Black Mary Jane shoes
-Full-length black robe

It's a really neat costume. I wonder if it'd be appropriate for Megacon. Poop if I know. I donno, I liked looking at the pictures. The kids are so cute! This site was the most helpful. I can't wait for the movie!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yay cold!

All I wanted to say was how great today is because it's cold. Of course, because of certain female conditions, it's not that great but it is. ::grins:: I wish the weather would just stay cold. How hard is it to do that! It's frickin' November! Stay cold weather! Stay cold!

"Don't be gay Sparky, don't be gay!"

Got Chamber of Secrets tickets for Friday! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Envy me you peons! A bunch of people from out of town are coming in so we can all see it together. So exciting. Austin says he's going to dress up like Hagrid which will be so funny. He wants a bunch of us to dress up as well but I donno how that'll turn out. My Cho costume wasn't exactly accurate. If I were to do it properly I'd have to go out and buy new materials and crap.. I donno, we'll see.

I should be doing errands soon but I'm somewhat lazy and I'm hungry so I want to make food. Yay food! Yay cold!

Richard Harris is dead.

Who's gonna play Dumblebore in the other movies? :P

In other news, I'm going through my stuff and deciding what to bring back. I have a lot more posters than I remember. I forgot I had a FFVIII poster. ::grins:: I'm also deciding whether or not to bring back some old purses I have. I probably won't. I have the cutest pink Chibi-Usa lunchbox purse thing though.

I took some Benadryl for allergies and I think the sleepy side effects are um, affecting me. So this will be short. Night.

Watching the Harry Potter movie right now. After hearing about Vivian's HPRP experiences, it's weird watching the movie in all its innocence. ::grins::

Oliver Wood, so hot right now!

I'm leaving tomorrow! I'm leaving for New York! I can't believe it. I haven't traveled in a while, plane-wise anyway. Geez, the last time I took a plane anywhere was Europe. I still haven't packed yet though I should. I'm excited and weirded out at the same time. My flight isn't till 5:20 pm so I have some time to sort things out.

Meanwhile, I've been messing around with the HPRP and it's been fun. I don't know how much time I'll have for it when I get up to New York but I do have access to the internet so hopefully I'll be able to do crap at least once a day. :)

Bye people! I'll miss you! If you need me email me, if you just want to say hi you can email me. I'll be online once in a while. ::grins::

Just found out the fifth Harry Potter book has been delayed till next year. Poopheads, I swear. Although I did get more info on the next movie. Apparently, Gilderoy Lockhart is to be played by Kenneth Branagh which I thought was very funny. ::grins:: You know, that's all I really have to say, I'm really tired and I'm going to bed.

Sean Biggerstaff is very very very very very very very cute. Just thought everyone should know that.

I'm bored now. Watched all the new stuff and was supposed to paint but didn't end up doing that. Mrs. Mead batty psycho lady's gonna beat us up. ::ponder:: Oh yeah, since I finished Harry Potter there's nothing to do. I s'pose I could borrow the first book again and reread the series. That would be alright. Then I could fully understand what's going on. It gets complicated. Harry Potter's also a great mystery thing, all the things you don't understand in the beginning have the best explanations at the end. Yeah, gonna go figure out stuff to do.
