HP7 Part II

Will you be dressing up as a character, etc?  Would you, if you could?   Who would it be?

Re: HP7 Part II

Hmmm . . . Yes.I will be going as a Muggle!

 

I don't think I could do it. I would be doing good if I wore my Harry Potter T-shirt and I'm not even sure I'm wearing that!

 

If I had to choose a character to dress up as, it would be Prof. Trelawney. That would be hilarious! Oh, can you just imagine it?!!

Re: HP7 Part II

Oh, go ahead and wear it.  Do! 

 

I'll wear one  of the earlier tees and my Dumbledore Hat (orange tassel).

 

The greatest costume I saw was at a midnight release book party  -someone got themself up as Mrs. Black. complete with picture frame!!!!

 

I'd do Tonks, on one of her violent-violet hair days.

Re: HP7 Part II

I will not be going in costume.

 

If I were to, I'd go as Dolores Umbridge.  I love to hate her.  I realize she doesn't appear in the second film, but...

Re: HP7 Part II

Doris Umbridge!  That would take real courage.  Better park right in front of the theatre, under the brightest lights, and take Fluffy along for protection.  And don't eat or drink anything.

Re: HP7 Part II

I just got my tickets today for the midnight showing, really excited because this is the first and only one I will be going to the midnight showing for. 

 

I am not going to dress up but if I had some student robes, either Ravenclaw or Griffindor, I would definitely wear them.

Re: HP7 Part II

I'm going to be Neville Longbottom. I have no shame.

I Was going to be Dobby, but the thing I made just looked like a dress. And I have hair. It just didn't have the right effect. ha

Re: HP7 Part II

He may of been in line for part 1, which at some theaters was shown as a special before part 2, the people that went to part 1 in the theater near me got priority seating for part 2. 

I thought the movie was great, they could of shown and explained some more at the end though.

Re: HP7 Part II

It's the ending that is particularly difficult, if you mean the King's Cross chapter.  Did they go into that at all?

Spoiler!

Yes Jules, they did have the King's Cross place after Harry was sent there. The epilogue was not a whole lot the same when you compare the movie and the book.

Re: Spoiler!

It does compare, cause SS and SoC were great, but so was the 7th movie part 2.... I loved it! i did not dress up as anyone, but if i had i would have dressed up as Luna Lovegood! ahahahah o that would have been a sight to see. or ginny. either one of them, but i think that dressing up as Luna would have been funny, because her style is a bit hilarious.... not that i dont love Luna, cause i absolutly do.

don't look back, there is a reason why your past is the past. so if someone didn't make it into your future. that just means that you will find someone better.

Re: Spoiler!

The movie was completely amazing!! It was faithful to the book and did not disappoint! I went as Bellatrix LeStrange, I'm so glad I did! There was one guy dressed as if he had just escaped azcaban that was running and shouting and jumping out of trees, that was my favorite costume. It was one of the most awesome days ever with camera crews and wizarding battles!! sighhhhhh............. I'll miss it

Re: Spoiler!

o man i wish i could have seen you. I would have loved to see someone dressed as bellatrix and seeing the guy dressed like an askaban prisoner, o that would have been funny. I'm kind of sad that all of this is over:*(

Re: Spoiler!

Hahaha:smileyvery-happy: Thank you, it was really fun seeing all those wizards and hogwarts kids glaring at me as I walked by! My Hufflepuff friend got so mad at me when I showed him the Dark Mark I drew on my arm with sharpie. It was so funny, when Harry killed Voldemort instead of cheering like we did for Nagini and Bella we just sat shocked in silence like -"now what?" But I can't complain about the ending. It was the best it could possibly be.
