This costume was very easy to put together. We had the dress shirt (she used one her brother outgrew), tights, skirt, and shoes.
We borrowed the robe, tie, and sweater vest from a neighbor. The wand was our neighbors creation as well. It was a clever D.I.Y. wand.
They made it by using one chop stick and a hot glue gun. With the hot glue, they made swirls around the chopstick to resemble Hermoine’s wand and a little knob at the bottom.
Then they painted the wand gold and white. If I made it, I would have probably just stuck with brown or gold, but it turned out great either way.
This is a fun DIY project that can be made with kids for little to no cost. If you have basic crafting supplies and get free chopsticks from a local Chinese or sushi restaurant, it would be free.
Next, we braided my daughter’s hair when wet. Once dried, we took it out and sprayed it with hair spray to give it a “young Hermoine look”.
Next, we did a photo shoot in the wooded area in our backyard with her brother (Harry Potter).
Hedwig (my daughter’s half-sister) was also in the photo shoot too.
