In recent years, Harry Potter and related characters from Hogwarts have been popular inspirations for Halloween costumes.

The costume is relatively simple. It would usually consist of a black robe, black frame glasses and one or more of the following accessories:

  • a twig broom (optional)
  • crest patch on the robe with the Gryffindor crest
  • a tie or scarf in Gryffindor colors (usually striped) -- gold and red
  • a white owl (optional)
  • a wand (11")


  • Sometimes you can buy an old graduation robe at a thrift shop. Then paint or glue on a patch.
  • Use a gold or red tie and paint on the other color's stripes.
