Accio Potter Paraphernalia!

I've made no secret about my Harry Potter obsession. In fact, despite the fact that I've watched each movie at least 5 times, I will still plunk myself in front of the TV and force my family to watch any Potter marathons that play over the weekend.

Oddly enough, however, I own zero Harry Potter paraphernalia outside of the books.  Why?  I'm not quite sure.  Perhaps it's like admitting to myself that I'm a full-scale geek if I purchase it (who am I kidding, I am one). I decided to seek out the handcrafted goodies dedicated to our Hogwarts heroes.

Ok, so this doll is a little creepy, but adorable at the same time - just like many things in the Potterverse! Wouldn't you want your own Harry to cuddle up to? You can pretend you shoved Ginny aside.   "He's an Isul (Groove dolls) full custom by .  Scar and lips carved. Handpainted faceup. Glasses and wand handmade.  Full clothes set also handmade. Includes the entire Hogwarts uniform."

You can purchase your own Harry here, for the slightly pricey cost of $279.96.

Speaking of cuddling with Harry, here's a very cute way to take him to bed every night:

 Look at those bottle green eyes (just like Lily's).  According to shopowner, , "Each item is pre printed onto high quality cotton fabrics and backed with super soft fleece. Pillows measure approximately 14 x 14 inches."

This pillow will Arresto Momentum any falling you have over it.  Get it here for $25.00.

If you're more the Hermione-type, or ever dreamed about being called a "Half-Blood Prince," you'd definitely want this book:

 I have to admit, this replica is pretty neat.  The pages are blank inside, perhaps for you to come up with a few genius brews yourself!  "The book has been customised to look and feel as though they have been taken straight from Professor Snape's potions class! !. Printed with the very same cover seen in the Harry Potter films," writes shop owner, .

"Advanced Potion Making" for those of you taking Slughorn's NEWT class is available outside of Flourish and Botts for $26.37 (not sure how much that is in sickles).

After you've purchased your copy of "Advanced Potion Making," you'll be well prepared to win that tiny bottle of Felix Felicis from Professor Slughorn.

 Of course, if you're more of a Neville, you  may  just have to buy a bottle from . Her extensive details include:

"Felix Felicis, also called "'Liquid Luck'", is a magical potion first introduced during Professor Slughorn's initial potions class in Hogwarts. Felix Felicis makes the drinker lucky for a period of time, depending on how much is taken, during which everything they attempt will be successful. It is meant to be used sparingly, however, as it causes giddiness, recklessness, and dangerous overconfidence if taken in excess. Felix is highly toxic in large quantities and is also a banned substance in all organised competitions"

Need a little luck? This little bottle contains gold flakes submerged in water to recreate the 'liquid luck' potion. The label worn down reads the effects and warnings of "Felix Felicis." 
 Purchase it here for $21.98, a steal, considering it takes 6 months to brew!

Happy Harrying!
