Ginny Weasley - Wig and Broom

So here's the last of my costumes from Fanexpo. Looking at the improvements made to my Ginny Weasley costume.

EDIT: For those of you interested in seeing the original post on my Ginny Weasley Hogwarts Robes posted in February of 2010. :)

Who's that in the background? XD

Anyway, so I decided to re-use my broom from my Kiki costume, even though it's not 100% accurate.  Since it was August that meant that I could harvest more day lilies from the garden to help fix up my broom. It was looking a bit sad after all the wear and tear.

This wig was a much better purchase than my Doctor wig.

I parted it to one side, and combed the hair out like crazy. The wig was quit a bit longer than I wanted, but it was a last minute purchase, so I had limited selection. I had to move my 'workshop' to the porch because the wig was longer than the stool was tall. Hahaha XD I put it on my mother to do the initial trim, and then worked with it a little more to thin it out a bit. Still not 100% happy with it, but I think it really suits the character.
I tied up the leftover hair and kept it, because it might be useful for something someday...  Who knows?

Lots of fun running around in this one. Lots of complements! People were telling me I look a lot like the actress. XD  I saw lego Hagrid and quite a few Harry Potter cosplayers. I even went and got a picture with Tom Felton! :D

That's it for Fanexpo! It was a blast! Next to come are my sewing and shop projects from this fall! Look forward to them! :D

  1. I would love to borrow this wig as I want to be Ginny but haven't seen a good wig out there for her.
