If you’re going as Harry Potter or one of his friends, an authentic looking Gryffindor robe will complete your look. Consider bringing along a wand for the maximum effect; you never know who else will be out and about. Or, if you’re leaning towards the darker side of magic, a Deatheater costume is sure to make a statement as well.
