Photos From the Potterdammerung!

I come bearing photos from the Union Square Book 7 release party! I put them behind a cut as not to kill your layouts. The accompanying text is completely SPOILER-FREE, and I ask that any comments you leave be spoiler-free as well. If you're on a slow connection and would rather view the images separately, they're in here. Mega-love to pockyslash for taking a bunch of the photos of me in costume and for introducing me to a nearby restaurant with DELICIOUS green tea ice cream!

Working the main events were four fantastic individuals, dressed as Hogwarts professors. I don't know if they worked for the bookstore or if they were hired actors, but whoever they were, they were AMAZING, and they really knew their stuff! I was so impressed with them. (And several people actually asked me if I was the "official" Trelawney, which made my day!)










Only kids age 15 and under were allowed in the costume contest, which was disappointing, but I got my picture with two mini Trelawneys! SO CUTE, OH MY GOSH.






Assorted costumes!
















The insane crowds...








MIDNIGHT!

You looked fantastic! I love the googley eyes.

Hah, the Sirius Cosplayer spelled Azkaban incorrectly. *snorts*

*snorks* I completely failed to notice that! (I think she's dressed as Bella, though.) Poor little cosplayer. Of course, Azkaban can play tricks with one's mind and impact one's ability to spell properly.

The photo of you and Dumbledore is just excellent! That Hagrid is great, too. Man, the costumes here were pretty lame.

Yeah, the "official" professors were freaking amazing! They far outstrip the costumes at the previous books' midnight release parties I attended. But it *is* New York City, and this was after all the biggest party in town!

Your outfit is fantastic! You really seem to have a knack for great fan costumes.

Thanks so much! It's always fun to walk around in a favourite character's shoes for an evening, and Trelawney's mannerisms are so entertaining to mimic.

Dude, Priscilla, that is a sweet costume.

That's a shiny awesome picture with Dumbledore. And the little Trelawneys -- awwww!
