Since the winter holiday, I've been able to do a lot more reading for pleasure, which naturally means I've picked up the Harry Potter series yet again for another go. If you're new here let me tell you - I'm a huge Harry Potter fan. I've read the books countless times, I've dressed up to the theater, I've cried with the characters, I've raved about it with my friends, and I'll stay true to the end. HP was literally my childhood (not that me being older has made a difference), but I remember eagerly awaiting the arrival of each book and movie. There is something truly so magical about this series... Magical enough to make me wear HP t-shirts to sleep, buy an acceptance letter, and even go to a University with the house system. (Yup, that was a determining factor in the end...har har har!!)
About Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
If you haven't read the book (which you should!)  here's a (very) brief summary (I don't wanna spoil it for you!) Harry Potter who just last year found out he was a wizard, returns to Hogwarts for his second year. But there seems to be something different about the school this year, mysterious messages on the walls claim that the legendary Chamber of Secrets has been opened and that the Heir of Slytherin has returned. Slowly students are being petrified. Throughout the year, Harry, Rob, and Hermione investigate the attacks. 
Outfit 1 - The Flying Car
This was such a heart-pounding moment of the book and movie! In this scene, Harry and Ron are unable to get into platform 9 3/4 and miss the Hogwarts express. Out of desperation, they take Ron's father's car to the castle instead. In this outfit, I started with a blue dress with buttons that resembled the headlights of the car. I added a trunk-like bag, and a cage and owl accessories which resemble Harry's trunk and Hedwig. Finally, I added a few white pieces and brown flats.The Flying Car


Outfit 2 - Tom Riddle's Diary 

Another magical moment in the book is when Harry finds Tom Morvolo Riddle's diary. He realizes that when he writes in it, it writes back. The diary shows him  the events of 50 years ago, when the Chamber of Secrets is first opened. The book is jet back with golden accents. I found a clutch that resembled the color and corner of the book. Then, I found a stunning black and gold dress and paired it off with a leather accented coat. Then I added a few gold and black accessories, chunky heels, and a book ring. Finally, a pair of deathly hollows earrings!

Outfit 3 - Fawkes the Phoenix 
Fawkes is one of my favorite animals in the series. A magical, majestic phoenix who is Dumbledore's companion. Harry first sees Fawkes in the headmaster's office. The Phoenix later helps him when he is in the chamber of secrets, saving Harry's life. I'm exceptionally fond of him and the deep message that Phoenixes represent. At old age, they burst into flames and then rise again from their ashes. These birds have red and gold feathers so I started with a firey-red, ruffled dress which resembled the bird's color and feathers. Next I added a bird brooch, and golden feather accessories. I then paired the ensemble with a pair of golden heels and a sparkly clutch. To finish off the outfit, some bright red lipstick!

Outfit 5 - The Chamber of Secrets 
Nearing the end of this book/movie, Harry and Ron find themselves in the Chamber of Secrets to save one of their classmates. The chamber is damp and dark, with huge statues of snakes on either side of a long corridor. I exemplified the eerie, dark green with a dress of the same, shiny color. I then added shoes and a clutch which were both deep green and scaly. Finally, I added a few gold snake accessories with green gems to represent the hidden basilisk in the chamber.

Outfit 6 - Dueling the Basilisk 

When Harry enters the chamber, he comes face-to-face with the basilisk, and enormous snake which can kill with a single glance. To fight the basilisk, Harry uses the sword of Godric Griffindor. For this outfit, I started with a snake-skin top over a dark pair of skinny jeans. Next, I added snake accessories to represent the basilisk and a sword necklace to represent the sword of Griffindor. Finally I added a pair of cream colored flats and a backpack.

  3. What a creative idea for a post! I'm a Harry Potter lover myself. My sister bought me a golden snitch locket for Christmas, it was the sweetest thing ever. http://instagram.com/p/iWehWyhlgK/

    It's really ingenious the way the book series worked out for those who read them growing up--we all grew alongside Harry, and thus adored him all the more.
