Thanks,everyone,for the kind remarks about the Potions Book. I was really lucky to find the perfect old chemistry book from 1960 at the Goodwill. It was full of the most gruesome photos; plus it had that portait of “The father of modern chemistry” who made a great Nicolas and Perenell Flamel!!
But there were two really amazing coincidences: first the authors name—-L. Jean BOGERT!!! and second, you can see on page one that the author mentions both “the philosphers stone” and “the elixer of life”!!!! It was tons of fun to enter the contest and I’d like to encourage everyone to try it next time! Thanks again for your kind comments. katandcon

the book! I mean, Luna’s hat is fabulous (if I tried anything like that I’d end with at least four ugly sunflower masks..), but I love the Advanced Potion Making book… so thorough!

I think the lion hat definitely deserved its win; the detail and construction is amazing!

These were all wonderful! I predict we’ll also be seeing variations of Luna’s dress between Halloween and Yule Ball season—the one she wore as Harry’s date to Slughorn’s Christmas party.
