Cast a Spell

Over the weekend one of my friends celebrated her birthday, and she decided she wanted to have a 50s Harry Potter theme for us to spend a day at Universal Studios, which last year opened the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. While I knew I could have easily opted for a 50s student look, when I heard a friend say she was going to dress up with a 50s Professor Umbridge inspired look, I decided to opt for a Professor McGonagall look, as she’s one of my favorites.

While Professor McGonagall has a few different looks throughout the Harry Potter films, she does wear the same ensemble in the first two films, and I believe is her most recognizable to be inspired by for my outfit. If you need a refresher or are unfamiliar, take a peek here.

Are you a fan of Harry Potter? It was certainly a defining moment in my adolescence! And continues to be something I re-read, re-watch, and am inspired by to this day.
