Don’t have an outfit for the bash tomorrow? Fear not, with a little magic and creativity (aka using your sheets and curtains for fabric and colovaria-ing the crap out of them) you can make yourself a killer costume in no time! Below I shall list ideas from yours truly. Happy crafting!
A paper bag
A giant quill and parchment
Your weird aunt Rita
Someone’s left trainer
A jar of jam
A grave digger
A pygmy puff
A giant piece of candy
An elf (the fantasy kind in muggle movies – not a house elf)
A jumper that says the word costume – it’s very original trust me
A bag of tea
Don’t just be a cat, be a kneazle! Far more creative
A Literal Fox
A cauldron [As pictured.]
Any of the characters from the Tales of Beedle the Bard
A knight in shining armor (or dull, dented armor – I’m sure no one will judge)
[OOC Note – Here’s a refresher of dress code as well as a link to our dress code policy where you can find diagrams for skirt lengths.]
* Skirts any shorter than a mini are not allowed (For clarity, if you remove your tights and can see butt cheeks, please don’t wear it). If in any doubt, check with an ALO
* Heels over 3’’ (mid height), or platforms of any kind are not allowed.
* Open shirts, blouses, tops without cover behind them are not allowed – find covers.
* Sheer leggings with noticable skintone underneath are a no-go. Leggings must be thick and tops worn MUST cover your avatar’s bottom if you’re wearing a shirt over leggings with no pants. Leggings with shorter tops are only allowed when working out/at dance class
* Booty shorts of any kind are a strong no-go. Shorts must be of the length in the image provided on the website. Tights MUST be worn with shorts or skirts that are above mid thigh
* Dresses that are strapless must not have a low cut neckline. Cleavage must be covered as much as possible. Heart shaped necklines must not be skimpy.
* Heels are allowed for 4th year and above. However, they must be kept within our modesty rule. Again, no platforms or stiletto heels. If in doubt, speak to an ALO prior to the event.
