Fan Girl Friday

Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittttt’s Friday! This week has kind of stunk it up big time, so I’m going to bring some geeky goodies that will warm your insides! And today is all about someone very near and dear to my heart—Harry Potter. Even though its been more than 10 years since the first Harry Potter book came out, the magic of it lives on. That is why today’s FGF is all about The Boy Who Lived!

This week, the fully illustrated versions of Harry Potter hit stores! They’re a wee bit taller and wider than the versions we’re used to, but they look fantastic! I REALLY want a copy of all of them! Just check out the beautiful artwork:

Imma need these in my life.

This Christmas we can all leave our Muggle celebrations behind and travel to our home away from home, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. I’m so not joking. Now that the Harry Potter Studio Tour has opened up in England, the genius folks have now opened up the Great Hall for wizards and Muggles alike to break bread and down a draught of butterbeer!

That’s right! For only $375, you can have a Christmas feast inside the Great Hall!

And, if that isn’t “Potterhead”enough for you, you can actually LIVE in the Great Hall. Well, kinda. The school that was used to film the first three HP movies has now been renovated into apartments and town homes!

You can rent out a flat and throw a party in the Great Hall! Be sure to book The Weird Sisters; they know how to rock.

When the HP films were coming out, I checked MuggleNet.com just about every eingle day for updates and behind the scenes pics. Now, they are doing something so awesome, I seriously got goosebumps when I read about it. They have started a new movement called ‘Potter It Forward’. This is when you go to your local library and leave notes about your own experience with the magical world of JK Rowling for future Potterheads to enjoy! Like this:

The movement has also taken to Twitter using: #PotterItForward. I love this!

And, last but not least, carry your love of everything Potter right around your neck with this beautiful Deathly Hallows-inspired accessory:

And remember if someone asks you, “You’re still obsessed with that?” you are obligated to reply with a soft, “Always.”

Happy fangirling!
