The Yule Ball

Being the huge harry potter fan that I am, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to attend the annual Yule Ball put on by Harry and the Potters, and Potter Puppet Pals. It was perfectly fun and festive, and I loved being around all these people who were just as excited and into the nerd-dome as I was. I wore this red velvet dress for the occasion, which perfectly matched the puppet pal stage curtains, and I hastily made a little golden snitch hair clip for a touch of thematic dress-up.

The puppet show was a harry potter version of A Christmas Carol, which was really fun. Then Harry and the Potters came on and worked their magic.

Since it was the Yule Ball and not just any concert I decided to get dressy. I wore this velvet dress and classed it up with this collar, added gold sparkly accents like my tights, makeup, and snitch clip, and wore my pointiest, witchiest looking shoes. I think I could have fit in at the hogwarts ball....the fabric felt similar to how I imagined Ron's dress robes.
