Winners of Harry Potter Look Alike Contest Revealed

The winners of our Harry Potter Look Alike Contest have been chosen by our Contest Staff and are ready to be announced.  As readers will remember, our July contest asked you to send in a photograph of those people who resemble characters from the Harry Potter films.  The winners of this contest are:

Well, for years everyone has told me I bear a strong resemblance to Daniel Radcliffe, Harry Potter. For the last couple of movies I dressed up as Harry and to great reward, everyone else seemed to believe that I looked like him too! The one is highly photoshopped in order to attain the "Harry Potter affect" while the other is just plain old me with my handcrafted wand.
The photos here are from a photoshoot from when I was a part of the cast for the Acciocon HP/Twilight Convention this last April.  The hair is my real hair and I've worked long and hard to achieve a similar physique to Alastor Moody. The Eye is my own creation that is remote controlled and swivels 360 degrees just like the real thing.  And when I’m in costume I am always in character.  I’ve developed an accurate impression of Gleeson’s Voice, his same determined Limp, and his intense attitude.
This is my friend Dominic. Dominic causes people-jams and minor ruckuses when we go to Harry Potter events because of his resemblance to Hagrid. When I went to see the first Harry Potter movie in the theaters, I was absolutely stunned when I saw my friend on screen! Then I realized it was Robbie Coltrane.  I took these pictures on opening night of "Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince." This is how Dominic looks normally, other than the specially-made Hagrid clothing: this is his natural hair and beard, and he wears no makeup.
In addition to the winners, we have two honorable mentions: Luna Lovegood and Lavender Brown.

The first place winner of this contest will receive their very own custom made wand from Wizarding Wood Wands.

As a reminder, the Wizarding Postcard Contest is up and running; full details on this contest can be found right here.

Congratulations to all!

Moody was fabulous! I thought the Luna and Lavender lookalikes were spot on also. All the winners were fabulous – congratulations.

Mad-eye, Luna and Lavender look-a-likes were good. I didn’t see much resemblance in the Harry and Hagrid ones. If I knew about this, I could’ve tried for Harry, but people keep telling me I look like Robert Pattinson. I know a guy who looks a lot like Ron, his name is even close. Congrats to the winners; hope there’re more contests coming up like this :p

I am the Luna Lovegood honorable mention! Yay, I’m glad I was chosen! I think that everyone else that was picked are really accurate as well.

The Mad-Eye Moody one is the best in my opinion! I actually let out an audible yelp of surprise when I saw the resemblance in the picture!

Dammit I can’t see the Harry nor the Hagrid one, for some reason the links won’t open. Poo, the Mad-Eye Moody one was awesome, I would hire him for a Hallowe’en party. Lavender was so incredible she could pass off for Jessie Cave’s big sister
