“…it’s all here in your head, and Slytherin will help you on the way to greatness, no doubt about that.”
― J.K. Rowling,
I am going to be flat-out honest and say…I love Harry Potter. I’ve visited the Wizarding World at Universal in Florida and gone on the Warner Brothers Studio Tour in London twice, not to mention that I have read the books and seen the movies multiple times. When I learned that there is a Wizarding Fair happening on the grid right now, I *knew* I had to get there stat. There is a plethora of various wizarding goodies from wands to school uniforms to jewelry and much, much more!
As expected, many of the uniforms and robes are geared to younger avatars since many Harry Potter RPers are Hogwarts students, and generally Professors and other adults in the Potter universe simply dress eccentrically and wear dress robes when the occasion calls for it. I did find a sweater and scarf set from Dark Passions (with matching Deathly Hallows nail polish to boot!) and decided to tie it together with latex pants from Insanya and House of Rain’s sky-high serpent heels to go for an “alumni returning for a visit” feel. With my wand from EDYN in hand, I ventured to Hogwarts with my fiance Loxys in tow as my photographer to snap some shots of a Slytherin homecoming.
My skin, eyes, and ears are from Stargazer Creations. If you’ve still not stopped by this month’s Genre to pick up the Kindred skin set, you need to get down there and grab it ASAP. It includes twelve skins, Omega and Slink appliers, and eyes…and for the duration of the event, it’s all only 100L! If vampires aren’t your thing, you can pop by Horror Haute and peruse some of Stargazer’s other skin sets for 200L each. I know I keep mentioning this, but the prices are a serious steal and they won’t last long. My messy bun is from Moon and is available at the Hair Fair. If you can get in, there are some excellent styles and freebies, and a portion of the proceeds from most hairs goes to Wigs for Kids, which is a very wonderful charity.
There is lots of shopping to do, so get crackin’, Darklings!
