With Terminus fast approaching, I am scrambling to get my costumes ready for the big week! As I don't have limitless funds with which to provide for myself a movie-accurate wardrobe, I'm making do with what I can find at thrift shops and what my sewing machine can dole out. As I've yet to acquire a Slytherin school tie, I am also trying my options out on that end. A dear friend (and Gryffindor) mailed me a striped tie that she thought might suffice, so I thought I would throw on what I have so far and see what it looked like. Too juvenile? Too... Muggle? Just wrong? Well, I thought I would let you lot help me decide!



"Specialis revelio!" You never know what horrors might be hidden between the lines of a Poe anthology!



And for another angle, we have a romp in the Forbidden Forest. Where doorknobs sprout from trees, apparently! How fascinating...



It isn't much without the robe, I know, and my badge is still on route following my success E-Bay bid. But there you have it! Any feedback would be wonderful. I suppose the question is, then, do I look quite the dolt, or do I make an acceptable Slytherin without the licensed product?



Posted also to my personal journal, and to the hp_costuming community. Thanks!

*nods* The multi-greens are not choice, but I thought that, for a random tie that she came across, it was pretty decent. I'm going to see whether I can't scrounge up a grey knit vest, and whether the tie would look better tucked beneath said vest. Otherwise, I'll keep my eyes out. I'll be skimming the vendor stands to be sure, and there's always E-Bay beforehand, though I've not had too much luck there yet.

Thanks :)
