Trelawney!

I went to the Book 6 Midnight Release Party as Professor Trelawney.



In my full glory:



Mom had the brilliant idea to dress up as Trelawney over dinner. I had been trying to decide between my (rather weak) Percy and Mary Sue costumes. We threw everything together in under an hour! Nearly everything was my mom's, except the top, which was my River dress, and one of the shawls, which I wore as Aldonza. The rings were from my age-12 jewelry collection, and the glasses used to be my dad's. Good lord, did people actually wear those things? They're huge! *mocks the 80s* The lenses were so thick that I was afraid I'd hurt my eyes, so I took them off or wore them at half-mast on my nose when I wasn't being photographed or hamming for the kids.





At 11:15, they staged a costume contest. There are no words to adequately describe these kids' cuteness. I ended up winning first place, the prize for which was the coveted First Spot in Line, but because I didn't want to take the award away from the kids, I gave it to an utterly adorable pair of siblings dressed as Harry and Ginny. Though I originally was given ticket #239 when I came in, the manager gave me ticket #4. Huzzah!


Luke and Eliza as Harry and Ginny








Pansy Parkinson


Hermione, Ron, Madam Hooch, and Professor McGonagall

And now, back to reading the book! *zooms*

This is fantastic. Utterly fantastic. Do you mind if I link it to my blog? I have friends who would just swoon over this.

There were quite a few convincing Hagrids at the party I went to last night in NYC. I don't know if these men chose to dress like Hagrid or just look like him most of the time :)

Followed moooshy's link...

I think you win forever!

Do you mind if I friend you? We share many of the same interests. I am a artist trapped in a science major's life, but I'm not really as miserable as my journal makes me sound. I think.

Sorry, but I just have to say... oh, wow, I love your userpic. :D

Priscellie, you look amazing. I wish I were brave/cool enough to go places in costume. :P I just wore a Gryffindor shirt to the party I went to. Have I ever seen your River costume?

For the PoA movie release my Name Twin was looking for a costume last minute, and went as Trelawney. I think that anybody who has parents who were alive in the 70s/80s can pull that off with relative ease. The shawls, bad patterns, jewlery and glasses that people associate with Trelawney seem so very easy to find among parents old belongings. :D Which means: you look fantastic. And I love those Azkaban shirts those girls are wearing. Hee!

Sure! Check them out here. I'll probably have better photos later this year, when I don the costume again for the Corpse Bride opening.

Sally actually required quite a bit of sewing! It's a rather ambitious project for a beginner.

I'm hoping to find the time to do equivalent pages for some of my other costumes, like Sally, Angua, etc. I'll let my flist know as soon as they're ready.

So, like, I am a totally random stranger, but I thought you should know that I deeply appreciate your collection of icons. :D I saw one in another journal and followed to see the rest. A person's lj icons can say a lot about them, and you must be one cool chick. I'm an especial fan of your Firefly ones. <3

And your costume is loverly.

That is all.

Also, random... do you or did you make HP fanart? I remember seeing the name Priscillie around back when I was an active internet Potterhead.

It was great to meet you this weekend. I just wanted to let you know that your season 6 is all packed up and I'll get it to the post office tomorrow. Awesome costume in these pix, btw.

Nice costume!

And may I put in a word of appreciation for the Azkaban Swim-team…although sadly they seem to have dried out considerably :-)
