Deathly Hallows Opening Night

Bellatrix Lestrange WigThe teens and I had been looking forward to the midnight showing of Deathly Hallows and the excitement got almost too much to bear in the weeks leading up after we purchased our advance tickets. I finished a crochet Slytherin House Scarf just in time for Boy Genius to sport it & his dark mark armwarmers to the movie and Mini-me had on her House Scarf and Slytherin hoodie.

A few days leading up to the showing I decided to attend as Bellatrix Lestrange – but what to do with my hair?! I found a pattern through Rav from Lion Brand for a yarn wig and modified it to fit my purpose. I think it totally made the costume. I was apparently convincing enough to scare small children and get asked for photos.

I also managed to get my pic taken with Mad Eye Moody – how ironic! 🙂

If you want to follow my mods to make a yarn wig to fit a grownup snugly – check out my Rav project for all my construction notes.

We have already started plotting our Wizarding Wear for the last movie. It’s sad that it will be ending soon but the memories we have are good ones!

Here are the photos with Mad Eye and of the projects:
