My office Christmas party is always fun and this year was no exception. The theme for this year’s event was “Lights, Camera, Action” and our team decided to be “Team Harry Potter”. It was quite fun deciding and getting costumes ready.
Graduation gowns make great wizarding robes
Trash bags make a great death eater costume.
I had a great time putting together my Hedwig – the owl costume. It has long been my dream to make the owl wings and this was the perfect opportunity.
The dress – lacey off-white dress from Cotton-On and white stockings. Brown shoes and a owl pendant. I taped few feathers to my earrings to make it extra feathery.
The wings – White and grey felt from Daiso. I cut of two white triangular felt pieces and stuck millions of feathers on them using hot glue. It did not take me too long. I added some glitter and real feathers to make it stand out. I used pins to attach them to my dress. On second thoughts I should have made it into a cape as the felt was quite heavy and dragged my dress down.
The hat – a cheap winter hat from Diaso with some felt cutouts and glitter.
What fun! The wings have now been passed over to kuttyma and I am hoping I can save it till her next fancy dress/Halloween – let us see
