As you well know, I am a huge fan of the Harry Potter books & films. With the impending release of Deathly Hallows, I’ve decided to dedicate this week to our favorite Harry Potter characters. Many of them have made appearances before, including my all time favorite post, Luna Lovegood. Today, I tried my hand at Hermione Granger. Hermione was exceedingly difficult because the runways of Paris, Milan, London and New York don’t really cater to the denim and striped sweater wearing Witch we’ve all come to love. So imagine this as a “high fashion Hermione,” lame I know but whatever. Enjoy.

Any suggestions for the next character?

the lion, the witch and the wardrobe was one of my favorite books when i was a kid. the book (and the rest of the series) take place in narnia, which lucy pevensie found through a wardrobe one day while playing hide and seek. when lucy and her siblings first stumble upon it, narnia is at the mercy of the white witch who keeps it in an endless winter. unfair. for lucy’s part, she (with her sister susan) help aslan revive an army of the white witch’s victims. after the big battle, she heals the fallen soldiers in asland’s army and is eventually crowned lucy the valiant. there’s more to it than that but basically, she’s awesome. more pevensies and narnians headed your way…just saying.
