Harry Potter Birthday Booty
It’s Harry Potter‘s birthday this weekend, and we’re celebrating in the best way we know how; by scouring Etsy for weird and wonderful art, accessories and other bits and bobs for the Slytherin obsessive or Weasley twin superfan near and dear to your heart. And, as usual, Etsy’s got the lot, from dark mark tattoo transfers to Hogwarts acceptance letters and magic-themed music for older Harry Potter acolytes (with mature content and innuendo a-go-go, apparently).
This medium format print of Platform 9¾ at Kings Cross is arty enough that your shameful secret might not be obvious to the uninitiated, but it’d still look swish in a matte black frame in a bathroom, home office or hallway. It’s $40USD from Kyle Spears. Want a more DIY and self-assembled artwork? You can buy The Burrow from Lego, complete with everything and everyone you need to re-enact Harry and Ginny’s race into the nearby reeds for a dramatic encounter with the Death Eaters.
Maybe you need to send some hand-scribbled missives to fellow Snape fangirls. These Owl Post telegrams will do the trick, and they come in your choice of colours, complete with envelopes, notecards, address labels and postage stamps. They’re $2.50USD from Celestefrittata, the woman behind the Quibbler Journal we featured a while back.
And last but not least, who wouldn’t want a nod to a children’s franchise full of wonder and magic when they’re getting down and dirty? Slink into your sluttiest seamed stockings and avail yourself of this Harry Potter garter set as a surprise treat for whichever witch or wizard you’ll be practising your seductive spells on. It’s $55USD from Mia Von Mink Garters.
