I'm really late getting the children's costume pictures up as we just got back late last night from an amazing, wonderful trip to Harry Potter World! I can't wait to share it with you.
This year, Grace is Totoro (a character from a Japanese movie) and Harris is Harry Potter playing Quidditch! My Mom and Grace made the costume together using an old sweatshirt. The cap Grace ordered online. I think it's such a perfect teenager costume!
After much debate, my Mom made Harris' Quidditch robes. This was a case where I could have bought a costume for much cheaper than making the robes and we went back and forth about whether to just buy one. However, in the end, Harris said he would rather have a Grandma made one, and I'm so glad as it's the perfect fit and way better quality than we would have bought. Plus, it's how Harris envisioned it!
We did buy a Gryffindor patch on Amazon, iron on letters for the back of the robe and Quidditch goggles.
Catching the snitch!
