It is almost October, as evidenced by the Halloween decorations I saw yesterday, but more notably by the e-mail from a certain friend asking me to recruit people to be characters for the Harry Potter theme Halloween block in San Francisco. Last year, as many of you might recall, I was Fleur Delacour, complete with entire costume. I pulled it out again for the latest HP movie, but figure the next chance I will get to wear it will be on Halloween, like last year.
Well, this year, I have been asked if either myself or someone I know would like to be Luna Lovegood
. OK, I really would rather get another year out of the Fleur costume, if not several, so I am not sure I should instead be Luna, but I suspect there is someone out there that would be a great Luna and just needs the excuse to put together a costume and join me and my friends (or be Fleur so I can be Luna). Also, I think there is needed a Tonks
, both which sound like fun roles.
Another role that I suspect at least one (or more) of my friends would have a lot of fun doing is The Fat Lady
for the painting in the door to Gryffindor Tower. This involves wearing a ball gown, interacting with the stream of tricker-or-treaters, and even occasionally acting upset, drunk and belligerent as you see fit (although loyal to Gryiffindor students, of course). In the past they have had a static portrait
, but we have be talking about how fun it would be to have someone really there interacting with people.
