About this deal

So when I was taking my kids to my parents house (which is a couple hours of driving each way), I decided that instead of letting them watch a movie, I would pop in the first Harry Potter book on CD and see what they thought. Led by headmistress Madame Maxime, the students of Beauxbatons Academy of Magic visit Hogwarts as part of the Triwizard Tournament in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

He couldn’t be happier with his new Harry Potter Quidditch robes Halloween costume, hopefully we can keep it clean until Halloween because he doesn’t want to ever take it off. They are ready just in time for our first costume party this coming Tuesday, but usually I make them reuse old costumes or dress ups for the first costume party of the month because I am an amazing procrastinator. The official Harry Potter robe pattern (Simplicity 8723) isn’t made for Quidditch but could be modified. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

He keeps saying he wishes his broom was enchanted so he could fly, but I am a happy mommy with his feet firmly on the ground. The Yule Ball held to celebrate Christmas and the Triwizard Tournament presented an opportunity for the Costume Department to create a more formal style of wizard wear. Cut out two of these out of black felt, then cur the 2 inches off your pattern (one inch off each side) and cut 2 of these out of faux fur.

Since you’re using polar fleece it won’t fray so there is no need to line the inside, plus it would get very very hot with 2 layers of fleece.

Today I’m sharing with you a way to make your own Quidditch Robes create a simple and clever Harry Potter Halloween Costume. Only cut the front, back, sleeves and hood (my pattern also had pockets and a tie that I didn’t use). But I guess this year I might even have time to do costumes for me and the hubby… or we can just reuse too. A shot of the whole family dressed up-and, in case you were wondering, yes we went as the “Epilogue” *wink*. Then put the yellow hood inside the red hood, right sides together and sew around the front of the hood.

Frankly I am partial to Blue / Silver since my cosplay is about being as screen accurate as possible. Bronze fabric and trim are rare, and even if you can find it, comes in a variety of shades that may or may not be bronze. The silver is a very thin window-protecting covering from Michaels that we cut to shape and attached to the fabric with iron-on interfacing. Sew around the permitter of the patch (not the felt, but the actual canvas piece) to secure it to the robes.As much as I knew he would look awesome in some plain black robes, I thought it would be more fun to make him his own set of Quidditch robes. Fabric usually comes in 44" width and a yard is 36" so 1 yard is probably more than enough for a boy. I find joy in creating, if you do too, then I hope that you find something here bring a little “happy” to your life. Filmmakers faced a huge challenge when turning the wizarding sport of Quidditch into a real sport they could capture on film.
