"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live."

We are just two days away from the premier and our excitment is unstoppable.
No one wants to talk to us because somehow the conversation always goes back to Harry.
We are not dwelling in dreams
We would never not take Dumbledore's advice
However we are daydreaming about Hogwarts and the Wizarding World
Do you think it is unhealthy to be this obsessed?
I don't
Amber doesn't

We have been getting our "outfits" that sounds like a lame word but I can't think of a better one
Costumes doesn't fit because that would elude to the fact they we are dressing as a character
Which we are not
Our clothing will just be Potter themed

This is mine.

Close up of my awesome ring that Amber got me. I love that the owl has Harry-esque glasses

This is Amber''s an awesome quidditch jersey with Number 7 on the back
I made this necklace for Amber using an old optometry glass.
 The words are the dedication from the last book.

This is pretty much what the boy will be wearing.....minus the trunk and owl

Lets talk about characters.....
Mrs. Weasley is my favorite character. I just really love the way she was written and the actress who plays her reminds me of my Mom.
I also love Bellatrix Lestrange
I could dress like her easily because we have the same hair.

Dobby and Sirius Black are the boys two favorite characters

Oliver Wood, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Neville Longbottom and Fred and George Weasley are Amber's favorites.....I asked her for two and that is what she gave me
I asked for two again and said "just two this time!!!"
So she said Oliver and Fred and George Weasley......
I am pretty sure that is three
Unless we are now counting twins as One

My least favorite is Draco Malfoy cause I found him to be annoying....although I really like the actor
Amber's least favorite is Gilderoy Lockhart she doesn't know why
The boy's least favorite is Bellatrix....I think he picked her because he was mad that I kept asking who his least favorite is and he knows she is one of my favorites....he is so mean to his Mum sometimes!

Back to favorites if I had to pick a third it would be Snape......I am so going to cry when he dies.

Who is your favorite character? Who is your least favorite?

One last thing....Amber thinks she looks like Harry Potter in this old photo of her from first grade.
Do you agree?

Thats obviously her with the glasses.

Tonight we will be having
Cornish Pasties
Butterbeer cupcakes

Have a Wonderfully Wizardy Wednesday!

She does look like Harry Potter! Amazing! I am soooo jealous, I still don't have any tickets...
I like Hermione a lot, actually. I don't know why.
Have fun!

You are so much fun. I think my favorites are Oliver Wood (I am so happy your daughter likes him I thought I was alone in this) and Professor Lupin. My least favorite is Percy, that dude pisses me off.

Laura said...

This is awesome! I love your "outfits," too!

Andrew Leon said...

Fred and George do count as one. How can you not know that? And they are my favorite. I'm still not recovered from Rowling ripping them in half. :(

And just to note, I don't dislike Abrams even if it came across that way. I do wish he'd stick with things, though. I'm glad we can still be friends :)

Jennifer Prescott said...

Wow, you are seriously into it! Impressive.

Unknown said...

yes, she is HP in that photo!

I agree with you about Malfoy... great actor but character is annoying. For me I think it is b/c he is supposed to be bad but seems incapable of being a true badass.

love the outfits! i call them that, too. For awhile, after my PTA induced nervous breakdown, I practiced outfit therapy. My outfits would take the hit when I couldn't, they could represent so much....

ok, I was digressing, but... outfits are awesome!

great ring, too!

Muriel - Amber saw your comment and she says thanks! She is happy someone agrees with her.
Lizzie - I totally agree with your Percy pick. He would actually be my second least favorite.....I just want to smack him.
Laura - thanks and welcome back!
Andrew - Its okay I like when people don't agree with me. It makes for a more interesting blogfriendship.
Jenny - Yes I am and thanks!
Stacey - Thanks and Amber says thanks to you also. I once had a job induced nervous breakdown. I wish I used outfit therapy to cure it but sadly I just used meditation.
