Sort-of Wordless Wednesday: Pottermania

Hope you guys had a great weekend!

Luna & Xenophilius Lovegood, a Gryffindor, a Ravenclaw
As you know, last week was all about a certain boy wizard. Since July 9th, I've been Harry Potter-minded - what with the movie coming out and fun stuff happening and clothes and props that needed finding for dressing up. So here are the fruits of my labor in this Sort Of Wordless Wednesday picspam.

(There will be a number of pics. You've been warned.)

July 9: nucleus gallery Harry Potter Tribute Exhibition

Lots of lovely fanart: Check the pieces out in high quality at the nucleus gallery website.

There was a giant line, and lots of people dressed up. I went with my sister and Sophia, and we met up with Soph's friends Karyn and Sam. It was fun, but not quite worth the 3 hours it took us to get inside, especially since my sis and I had been at Disneyland in the hours before we went to the gallery. Needless to say, I didn't need to be in another line.

We were afraid of giant!Voldy.
C was too busy showing off her Dark Marks.

There was also a free "photo booth," which was actually a giant Lucius Malfoy in Death Eater garb in front of a camera. So we grabbed the offered props and took a pic with him.

July 14/15: Midnight Showing of HP7 Part 2

We went to the Arclight, which does reserved seating. So we didn't have to stand in line for 5 hours in order to get good seats. Our group consisted of me, my sister, my sister's friend, my cousin, Sophia, and the lovely Ani from Anime's Musings, who I met for the first time that night.

A Slytherin, Bellatrix, Sirius, a Gryffindor, a Slyterin Quidditch Player
Azkaban, home of the crazies aka the Black family. One minute we're smiling, the next we're dueling.

Wall of Harry Potter posters inside.

Lastly, my updated Sirius Black "Have You Seen This Wizard" shot, complete with newly made Azkaban sign (more accurate too).

Anyone else celebrate Harry Potter in a big way? And for the record, I did not actually shed tears, but I'm not much of a movie-cryer.

P.S. Did you check out the Fairy Godmother Guest Post on Friday? You could WIN an ebook subscription to Danyelle's The Fairy Godmother Dilemma if you comment on that post. I'm choosing winners this weekend, so don't miss out!

Love the photos. I haven't seen the movie yet. Soon. I hope.

Sophia Chang said...

Geez heart of stone! (Alz much?) Not crying at the last HP - what is wrong with you?

Ani said...

Awwr! I heart this post SO much! I went to see the movie again Sunday. And yes, I sobbed again. Don't hate. :P

(O.O) you guys had a blast!!!
Thanks for sharing with us. I haven't seen the movie yet but plan to. I'm afraid of huge crowd.

Wahhh, you guys are so cute. I love the costumes. I think my group was one of the few at the midnight showing that didn't dress up, but we were also there reporting and taking photos for the paper, so maybe it would've been a bit inappropriate. Wish I could've though! Your theater looks a lot more interactive than mine was.

Y'all are adorkable.

I sniffled my way through the last half of the movie, but I cry at Campbell's Soup commercials.

Too lame to dress up for 945 am Saturday showing with my husband, but I did see a girl with a Gryffindor scarf, and just for fun I wore this necklace I have that my husband calls my time-turner. :)

Great photos! Looks like you guys had a great time. I'm not into lines, but that Nucleus Gallery looks pretty cool. Perfect place to visit before the movie :)

Bkloss said...

Oh I LOVE all those photos! Though I must admit, I felt a little sad looking through them :(

No more...

BUT, what do you say they do a re-release of the films in, oh, 15 years? Hey, they did it with Star Wars!! :D

Carolina M. Valdez Schneider said...

Dude. That's so freaking awesome!! I would have loved to go to something like that.

Man, now I need to go see it again.

I haven't seen the movie yet--we'll probably end up waiting until the DVD comes out.
