Lanterns

This LJ Entry is a Horcrux

I'm so excited about Deathly Hallows!!!

For the past week, my friends and I managed to rent and watch the first six movies (all while drinking butterbeer). Tomorrow we're watching the seventh and then going to Grauman's Chinese Theater for a midnight showing of the eighth!

I decided that I'm going in costume. As a joke, when the first part of Deathly Hallows came out, I said I wanted to go dressed as Pigwidgeon. Okay, so that's not going to happen, but believe it or not, I have the proper materials for a standard Hogwarts school uniform, black shirt (not exactly a V-neck) with a white collared shirt underneath, and luckily, my maroon and gold Boston College tie looks a lot like a Gryffindor tie.

Today, we went to Whimsic Alley, a Harry Potter-themed gift shop. It was pretty neat, although very crowded (for good reason). I contemplated getting something else for my costume, like maybe a wand or a scarf, but I decided not to splurge, and I just ended up with a button that says "What I wouldn't give for an invisibility cloak right about now". I couldn't find any "Direct Descendant of Godric Gryffindor" buttons, even though they had them for Salazar Slytherin and the others. I also got a bad of Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans, as did each of my friends. One of my friends got a Dark Mark temporary tattoo.

Well, we're going to get to the theatre a couple hours early...and bring Harry Potter Clue to play while in line...it'll be a blast!
