T Shirts for the Harry Potter Obsessed

Today, on my day off, my friend Sia and I went out with our friend Kyle and bought supplies to make Harry Potter T-shirts for the premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 on July 15 – three days away.

Here’s what we used:

  • Two simple T-shirts, mine white and hers gray, bought at Wal Mart
  • Fabric markers – blue, gold, black, silver, green
  • Scissors (I cut mine into an off the shoulder shirt)
  • Cardboard (to make sure the markers don’t leak onto the back of the shirt)
  • Patience!
We both had different ideas for what we wanted. I was inspired by Dream A Little More, and their set of Potterhead T-shirts. What I wrote was “I Have Stuck with Harry until the very end, afterwards embellishing with the Deathly
Hallows symbol and Harry’s scar.
And here’s a picture of just me, wearing the off the shoulder style. What I did for the off the shoulder style is simply cut about an inch under the neck, all the way around. It worked out perfectly! 

Sindhuja, a true Slytherin, wanted a Malfoy quote on her shirt. She wrote, “No one asked for your opinion, you filthy little mudblood” in green and black.

Here she is wearing it:

Meanwhile, Kyle helped out  by playing Minesweeper and babysitting us.

Here Sindhuja and I are again, showing our back. On the back of my T-shirt, I wrote “7/15/11 – It all ends here” while Sindhuja wrote the date and the Deathly Hallows symbol.

Are you getting psyched for Harry Potter? Let me know what you’re doing for the premiere below! Only three more days everyone!

    Really great! I love both, but really like Sin’s – still laughing cuz it doesn’t sound like here at all! Slytherin?? Wow! Question: For those of us lesser beings who don’t remember the books very well, cana you summarize with bulletpoints what happened in each book that led to the end?

  2. We’re both a mixture of Slytherin & Ravenclaw, I think. And I wouldn’t really want to go into detail here about “the end” of Harry Potter, in case others haven’t read the book, but email me and I’ll see what I can do!
