Wingardium Leviosa by behindinfinity Wingardium Leviosa by behindinfinity
A swish and a flick, and... Wingardium Leviosa!


A wizarding photograph of Harry Potter practicing the Hover Charm on a feather in the Gryffindor Common Room? Well, not really. It's a cosplay photo that I bewitched with the practical magic of animation. :lol:


:iconbehindinfinity: myself as Harry Potter
:camera: photography by Erving Go
:bulletblack: post-processing and animation by me
:bulletblack: location is Gryffindor Tower Fernbrook Gardens


I share a strong attachment for Hogwarts with my friends, and this year we finally decided to get our own robes for the purpose of wearing it to the final installment of the Harry Potter films. Well, it started with wanting robes, but we ended up with full costumes. ^^; More pictures to come of other characters too!

Cosplay is my way of paying tribute to characters I admire. I have great respect for Daniel Radcliffe, but I do hope I manage to do a bit of justice to Harry too. I based my look on the book description and the book illustrations. :D Apart from the robe, that is, because I really liked the design of their uniforms in the movies.


:note: For those of you who might be interested, I shared a tutorial of sorts of how I had made my Harry Potter wand, including some snapshots of when some of us wore the first draft of our Harry Potter costumes to the screening of The Deathly Hallows Part 2.
They're all in my journal post over here :pointr: [link]

And if you would like to see a silly video of me "casting spells", you can check that out here :pointr: [link] :laughing:



:wizardhat: Some other photos from the Hogwarts Photoset:


Complete set :pointr: [link]


And for a bit of random musing... I noticed that a lot of people have been saying MY CHILDHOOD IS OVER after seeing the last film. I don't know, but for me, it didn't feel that way at all.

I just remember, “Words are our most inexhaustible source of magic.” That made me feel that the magic is ours to keep forever, and that Hogwarts will indeed always be there to welcome us home. A simple quote, or a mention of words like butterbeer or puffskeins — these little things are enough to take me back to a world I had explored and loved for many years. The ways the series has inspired me will always be a part of who I am. It doesn't have to end. Thank you, J.K.Rowling. Thank you, Harry.

No offence, but me and my fellow toads say that this does not look like harry this is actually just humilating him. Sorry it is the truth. Sorry dont mean to be rude but it is seriously the truth...
