The first of these were made on fannish whim for my roommate and I, back at UCLA. As it turned out, many other people wanted them too, so commissions of many different sizes and colors followed. These lovely people were kind enough to send me back pictures after their orders were completed.

Not long after I started doing student robes, a few people contacted me regarding garments for the more mature fannish contingent. After some diligent research into specific cuts, this professorial style was created for them. One in linen and one in silk faille, both with wonderful shape, texture and drape.

Yet another special request re-creation. Bodice in silk with wool trimming and the capelet lined in microsuede. Yes, we modified the shoes. No, I didn’t make the hat. Made for the opening of Goblet of Fire back in 2005. Being modeled here by my lovely friend Sassy.

So, remember ages ago when me and my two best buddies were turning out a huge pile of these wizard robes to order? We refer back to that time fondly now as “our little sweatshop that could.” Well, let’s just say that you can’t make that many robes without having some extra fabric left over. So several years after I moved on from that venture, I still had a healthy amount of fabric in Hogwarts house colors lurking in my fabric closet.

This was the one event that inspired all the robe-making costumey madness years ago, so it has a special place in my heart 🙂 Warning, very picture-heavy. — So last night (October 27, 2004) was UCLA’s annual All-Hill Halloween event. Basically, around 1700 kids from surrounding schools were bused here and trick-or-treated throughout …
I promised videl_bishoujo that I’d post pictures of the Hermione hoodie that I got a couple years back from the official Japanese Harry Potter store. Because of the Japanese penchant for (and marketability of) film replicas with insanely accurate detailing (with accordingly higher prices), they were licensed to make many items from the movies that are not available in the US. The site doesn’t ship out the country, either, so those of us overseas who want items mostly have to wheedle and cajole friends into getting them for us 🙂 Here’s pictures of the garment in question as seen in …
Saw this in autumnyte‘s LJ and had to pass it on because I think I just fell out of my chair. Harry can rap, yo.
What really shocks me is that they have production values. *boggles*
Heh. I’m wearing my Slytherin rugby today. It looks exactly like the ones you can get at Old Navy, only it has a little embroidered house seal on the left breast area where logos go. It counts under suitable business attire because of the collar and subdued colors. Subtle displays of fandom in daily life amuse me greatly. Sadly, not a single person here will probably recognize it.
