We all remember the tale of the boy who lived and his journey to defeat the Dark Lord, ‘he who must not be named’. It’s an all-round family classic to not only binge watch over and over again, but also read and not be able to put the book down.
Harry Potter makes an excellent fancy dress idea for themed parties, or just for dressing up with your family. We’ve put together some of our best Harry Potter costumes to give you some inspiration. 😊
Harry Potter Gryffindor Robe
It was a day to remember when Harry Potter was chosen to be placed in Gryffindor House when he first started at Hogwarts. Gryffindor is considered to be the best house, as that’s where all the famous witches and wizards graduated from. All of Harry’s closest friends and helpers, such as Ron, Hermione and The Weasley Brothers, are in the same house.
If you want to join in with Harry’s pals, grab yourself this Gryffindor robe and get yourself comfortable at the great dining hall, ready for some school announcements from Dumbledore himself.
Adult Gryffindor Robe
Dressing up isn’t just for children, it’s for the adults, too! Whilst the grown-ups and teachers don’t wear house uniforms in the Harry Potter movies, you can totally rock the Gryffindor robe at a party with your friends and family!
You can even team up with your friend or son and go against the devious Slytherin house!
Harry Potter Quidditch Costume
Harry Potter is also famous for its game of Quidditch. Each year there are try outs to compete for a spot on the team. Luckily for Harry, he made the team in just his first year at Hogwarts – Draco Malfoy clearly wasn’t too pleased about that!
This quidditch costume makes a great outfit for a Harry Potter party. You can even buy some broomsticks and pretend you’re flying high in the sky. After all, haven’t we all wanted to fly around on a broom stick catching the Golden Snitch?
Hermione Granger Costume
Hermione is the brains of the group and without her, Harry would have been pretty lost! Known as the know-it-all by Professor Snape, she learnt more spells in her first year at Hogwarts, than students in their final year!
If you also want to be a teacher’s pet and master of spells, dress up in this Hermione Granger costume and start casting magic to save your friends from dark and mysterious beings!
Harry Potter Slytherin Costume
Slytherin House is known to be the ‘bad house,’ where no-one wanted to end up, especially Harry. Mainly because of the many dark wizards that were previous members of Slytherin. He who must not be named was in Slytherin house, so he always had his watchful eye on them, especially Draco Malfoy, his archenemy.
If you’re feeling evil and want to go against Harry and his friends in Gryffindor House, you can take him on by dressing up as Draco, or maybe even Crabb and Goyle from Slytherin!
Kids Harry Potter Death Eater Costume
Death Eaters don’t appear until the 4th novel, The Goblet of Fire. This is where the Dark Lord is reborn when Harry is taken to a Portkey during the last challenge of the Triwizard Tournament. Death Eaters are scary characters and are bad people, as they worship ‘he who must not be named’.
If you’re feeling evil and want to turn to the dark side, why not dress up as one of Lord Voldemort’s followers, such as Lucius Malfoy or Bellatrix Lestrange?
Adult Voldemort Costume
The once innocent Tom Riddle, who was placed in an orphanage at a young age, soon took a liking to dark magic and wanted to be the strongest wizard of all time. He wanted to be remembered as the darkest and most powerful wizard out there. And he soon accomplished that!
We don’t see Lord Voldemort in his full form until The Goblet of Fire, and when we do, we see a scary and slightly deformed creature come to life.
He makes a great Harry Potter costume for all occasions and is a character not many others will think of. Do you want to destroy all the living and become the world’s most evil wizard ever known to man? Then you can, with this Lord Voldemort costume!
Ladies Wizarding School Uniform
Now this isn’t one of the typical Harry Potter costumes that are featured in the novels and the films, but it’s certainly a popular one for dress-up and party occasion.
This is a great costume for those who want to still dress up but be a little bit naughty at the same time! It’s great for night’s out and parties with friends!
Ron Weasley Costume Wig
Ronald Weasley plays a big part in the Harry Potter books and films. He’s Harry’s best friend, brother to Fred and George and (spoiler alert) finally ends up being Hermione’s boyfriend!
What makes Ron stand out from all the other characters is his bright ginger hair. You can never miss him, that’s for sure!
You can play Ron by putting on this cool Ron Weasley wig.
Deluxe Hogwarts Sorting Hat
The legendary Sorting Hat is responsible for putting students into the four different houses - Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin. It’ll take into account your preferences, but will ultimately decide for you.
When the Sorting Hat was put on Harry for the first time, he begged not to be sent into Slytherin House. Although the hat thought he would be a great fit, he listened to Harry and placed him in Gryffindor.
If you want to place your family in one of the four houses, then this Sorting House is just for you! Make sure you choose wisely!
So, there you have it, our top 10 Harry Potter costumes! They excellent for a party, Halloween, or even if you want to dress up with your family. It’s also one of the most popular themes for World Book Day. Find many more Harry Potter costume ideas and accessories in our shop area here.
