Fans of the popular “Harry Potter” movies will be glad to know that dressing as the older, more mature Harry as he appeared in the final movie “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part Two” is pretty straightforward.
To emulate Harry’s look from earlier movies, wizard robes and other accessories were required. “Deathly Hallows” finds an older Harry preparing for the final battle in attire similar to what you probably already have in your wardrobe.
Putting together your Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows costume is fairly simple. Each item can be cleaned and worn again. To create Harry’s costume, the following items are needed:
— one pair of dark blue denim jeans
– two t-shirts, one light blue, one black
– one navy blue hoodie with a lighter blue lining
– one bomber-style denim jacket
Layer the light blue t-shirt over the black t-shirt. Pull the collar of the light blue shirt down just a little so the collar of the black shirt can be seen. Place the navy blue hoodie over the shirts and zip half-way. Place the denim jacket over the hoodie. Add dark blue denim jeans and don’t forget to add the trademark round spectacles.
Add a little mud and dirt to the clothing. Pull a few threads or strategically fray the jacket. Dab some mud on your face, hands, hoodie, jacket and jeans. You don’t need to worry about the lightning bolt scar so much as it is rarely visible in the final movie.
Harry may appear slightly grimy in this costume, but he is still handsome. The key to this costume lies in the styling of the hair. Harry’s hair is clean, but to gain that “I just battled Voldemort for my life and won look,” it is necessary to use some sort of styling product to strategically ruffle the hair. Washing your hair, then adding some gel and running it though the hair without brushing will achieve the “wet, rumpled, yet handsome” look.
A wooden stick that is slightly crooked can stand in for Harry’s wand. Sand it down a little, then polish. The shoes don’t matter as much. At this point, Harry is a typical English schoolboy, who happens to be a wizard.
The focus on the final film had much to do with the humanity of Harry. In keeping with the dark, yet trendy theme, black sneakers or athletic shoes can be paired with this costume. Muddy them up enough and the color won’t matter.
