Harry Potter Costumes For World Book Day

Harry Potter Costumes For World Book Day

Posted in The World of Smiffys Fancy Dress by Smiffy's Fancy Dress Shop on February 08th 2017
When we consider world book day costumes, many of us think of books as just novels or short stories, but there are so many forms of literature to enjoy. One such style of writing is the screenplay. One of our nation’s most beloved authors wrote a screenplay that was enjoyed as both an entertaining screenplay and a fantastic film by people of various ages all over the country; J. K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.


Fancy Dress Costumes From The Harry Potter Universe!

There are lots of reasons why people choose to dress up in a book day costume inspired by the world of Harry Potter.

Perhaps the most exciting thing about the Potterverse (The Harry Potter Universe) is that it is set in our own universe, yet it is inhabited by magic. However muggles (non-magic people) are unaware of the magic around them. For many the Potterverse is a universe that many can escape into. For some, fantasy is seen as a genre for children, however many adults enjoy the escapism and sense of adventure that fantasy literature can provide.

One such piece of fantasy literature that entertains audiences from young children to adults is Harry Potter; as such Harry Potter inspired costumes are popular choices for many on world book day.

At Smiffys Fancy Dress Shop, we have a great selection of Harry Potter inspired costumes and fancy dress items. Such as this Official Sorting Hat. Are you a brave and daring Gryffindor, a hardworking and loyal Hufflepuff, an intelligent and witty Ravenclaw or are you an ambitious and cunning Slytherin? Put on the sorting hat and find out!


The New Era Of Harry Potter Literature And Film

Harry Potter has been loved by many since the first book came out in 1997 and the first film in 2001. Now the next generation has a fantastic adventure to enjoy in the Potterverse; Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. This new screenplay written by J. K. Rowling is a fantastic adventure into the Harry Potter universe. This adventure takes us deeper into the history and culture of the Potterverse.

This story is a fantastic addition to the Potterverse. It takes us to a new world and a new country; The United States of America. The USA is quite different to the United Kingdom with regards to the use of magic. The story follows a man called Newt Scamander in his adventures in the USA. The book Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them actually exists. It was written by J. K. Rowling during the gap between the Goblet of Fire and Order of the Phoenix. In the Potterverse, this book is penned (or perhaps quilled) by the wizard Newt Scamander and the book is a textbook at Hogwarts.
