Dressing up as the beloved characters from J.K. Rowling’s iconic series, Harry Potter, has been a Halloween favorite since the release of the first book. If you and two of your friends want to recreate the magic of the famous trio – Harry, Hermione, and Ron – here are some inspired Halloween dress up ideas to make your spooky holiday unforgettable.

The Classic Hogwarts Look

Harry Potter:

  • Robe: Get a black Hogwarts robe with a Gryffindor emblem on it.
  • Glasses: Round-framed glasses are a must.
  • Wand: Acquire or craft your own wand, preferably resembling Harry’s holly and phoenix feather wand.
  • Scar: Use a lip liner or face paint to draw his lightning bolt scar on your forehead.

Hermione Granger:

  • Robe: Black Hogwarts robe with Gryffindor crest.
  • Hair: Embrace big, bushy hair – if you don’t have Hermione’s hair naturally, you can always get a wig.
  • Wand: A vine wood wand with a dragon heartstring core is her choice.
  • Book: Carry a big magical book, bonus if it’s “Hogwarts: A History”.

  • Rat: Carry around a toy rat, representing his pet, Scabbers.

Deathly Hallows Seekers

The trio, on their quest for the Deathly Hallows, can be a symbolic choice:

Harry Potter:

  • Resurrection Stone: This can be crafted from a simple black stone with the Hallows symbol on it.
  • Cloak of Invisibility: A silvery, semi-transparent cloak will work.

Hermione Granger:

  • Tale of Three Brothers Book: Craft a replica of “The Tales of Beedle the Bard” or just carry an old-looking book.
  • Hermione’s Hourglass Necklace: A replica of the Time-Turner.

Ron Weasley:

  • Deluminator: A small flashlight or custom-made prop representing Dumbledore’s gift to Ron.
