How to make an easy Harry Potter costume
Robe, white shirt & black trousers
The first step of making a Halloween costume that’s fit for Hogwarts is making sure you’ve got the essentials. Start with a pair of smart black trousers and a white shirt (you’ll probably have something suitable in your wardrobe already).
Then you’ll need a robe! If you fancy going down the real DIY route, we found a great DIY Hogwarts robe tutorial here but any of these Harry Potter robes would be perfect. And for grown-up Potterheads, we’ve got them in adult sizes too!
Now it’s time to add the costume accessories that will complete your transformation into the world’s most famous wizard! Start with a Griffindor tie like this one that will make you look all set to board the Hogwarts Express!
You’ll also need a pair of round Harry Potter glasses – and don’t forget to draw a lightening bolt scar on your forehead!
How are you supposed to do magic if you don’t have a wand? Make sure you’ve got a Harry Potter wand like this one that’s a replica of his phoenix wand!
Last but not least, you’ll need a broom! This is an optional part of your homemade Harry Potter costume but it’s perfect for any Potter wannabe!
