Oh my Merlin I want Hermione’s dress!!!!! =D But I bet it costs quite a few knuts and gallons. The owls are so cute. I am going to spend so much money when I finally get to the Wizarding World! :)

All the 21/2 year old I nanny wants is a plush dobby doll. She loves dobby, and yet none exist anymore. They used to have them a long time ago but now they are exceptionally expensive to buy second hand. They need those!

You know those alma mater decals that people stick on the rear windshields of their cars? Why isn’t there a Hogwarts version? They would sell millions of them.

@WeenyOwl, I was – ogling – having a look at them earlier. Unfortunately, I appear to lack both the cash ($195!) and the figure (especially the height) to carry them off.

Foiled again! My attempt at striking through the word ‘ogling’ in my last comment failed to work. There must be some way of formatting these comments.

Ya, I know a couple of folks who would covet Snape’s robes as well…. Actually, if the quality of manufacture is good, the price is not really exorbitant I think.

No, V-J – I’ve seen ones advertised that say ‘Hogwarts Alumni’ or ‘…Graduate’ or ‘…Honor Student’ or ‘Hogwarts’ followed by the name of your house. But to look authentic it should just say ‘Hogwarts,’ with perhaps a small crest underneath, the way real university decals look. I did, however, find a guy online who’s making his own Hogwarts and Unseen University parking permit stickers that look pretty realistic!

That picture which is below the caption ’Dumbledore’s Robes’, doesn’t look like Dumbledore’s robes to me.

I looked at the photo via the link given to the Daily Quibbler and you can look at them a bit bigger and Dumbledore’s robes look a bit better like that, they do seem to be a rather darker colour than the robes in the film though, and not really much like them.

@Weeny, it’s clearly one of those things we don’t do in the UK.

@Moglet, there are clearer pictures here, but I think it must have been photographed in a very poor light. Otherwise our Albus would think it very dowdy, I’m sure.

I keep trying to post the link to the pictures I found, but Leaky won’t let me.

Though even more oddly, the posts that wouldn’t appear here display on my profile.
