When it comes to dressing up for Halloween or cosplay, Harry Potter is always a good choice. Who doesn’t love this young wizard and all of his exciting adventures? Or, perhaps dress as the great wizard and Harry’s friend, Albus Dumbledore. If you don’t want to dress as a specific character, there are also a lot of great non-specific wizard costumes out there to choose from. If you enjoy do-it-yourself projects, you could also create Harry Potter costumes or other wizard costumes yourself. Here we look at some great wizard costumes from the world of Harry Potter, some random wizard costumes and some do-it-yourself ideas.

How to Make a Harry Potter or Hermione Costume
Make a super simple Harry Potter or Hermione costume inexpensively. Use a pair of black pants and white collared shirt to start with. The demonstrator in the video uses a cheap pair of silly glasses with mustache and eyebrows attached and simply cuts off the unwanted parts to leave a pair of simple round glasses. She uses an inexpensive polar fleece scarf and snips fringe into the ends and cut pieces of yellow felt to make the stripes for the scarf. It’s hard to tell exactly what she uses for the main cape, but I know from experience that a large black tee shirt slit down the middle of the front makes a great Harry Potter robe. Print out an image of the Gryffindor emblem and then glue the emblem to the robe. You may wish to place clear tape over the paper emblem to keep it nicer and make it more resistant to tearing. This is a super easy and inexpensive project and the kids will love it.
DIY: Hogwarts Robe
This is a step-by-step video tutorial that involves making a simple robe pattern from a coat you already own. Simple steps show how to trace the pieces and where to sew them together. This particular robe has lining and a hood, so you will likely need to have a few sewing skills to make this one. Crafter uses a printed image of the Gryffindor emblem onto tee shirt transfer paper and then ironed the image onto the robe front. This project requires newspaper, tracing wheel, pen, ruler, black woven fabric, red woven fabric, sewing machine, thread, iron, iron on transfer paper or an actual Gryffindor path emblem which can be found on Ebay. Great for wearing at a Halloween or Cosplay function. A good tip is to use a black cotton fabric for the main body of the robe, and use a stain lining fabric for the red/burgundy parts of the robe.
