Revel_Terminus: A Death Eater Community


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!

Looks awesome :) A good deal of this whole costuming thing is how well someone pulls it off, and you're totally into it in these pics! Should go over quite well - and a great example of doing the best you can with what you've got :)

And! If anyone's got a gripe with your costume, tell them *they* can fork over the change to get you an "official" tie ;)

Or better yet, throw a bat bogey hex at 'em!

High compliments! And yes, a bat bogey hex would be quite suitable. I shall use it on "them" with pleasure!
