Family Harry Potter costumes are just magical. This is our second time dressing up as Harry Potter Characters and I’m sure it won’t be our last! How long will Harry Potter costumes be popular? Always. It’s just a classic costume idea, especially for families. There are so many characters to choose from. Personally I like switching up who I dress up like. And one of the blessings of having a Gryffindor robe is you can use it over and over again.
Plus they are perfect for World Book Day or just dressing up to play. Dressing up as book characters really helps stories come to life for children. My kids were so excited to be Harry, Ron, Colin, and Ginny. I opted to be someone scary for once: Delores Umbridge. Although really I’m only scaring my oldest. My other 3 kids haven’t read that far yet. And since we strive to avoid spoilers I didn’t tell them I might just be more evil than He-who-must-not-be-named.
Our family costume rule is that everyone has to be able to pick characters that they are happy with. We can’t have everyone fighting over being Harry. And there are still so many Harry Potter characters you could add if your family or group was larger. I’m sure we will do this theme again. And you have to have at least one person be Harry, but next time I’m hoping for a Dobby, Krum, Luna, or Molly.
