The scarf we all have seen on Harry Potter on several occasions. I would unquestionably endorse buying this one as this is one of the items that would set you apart from the pack. The scarf has the colors of the Gryffindor house, and the crest has been embroidered on it exquisitely. The scarf is also flawless concerning length as it is not too long or short. You can happily stay warm while wearing Harry Potter costume, and it’s guaranteed.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Coming on to the second movie of the Harry Potter series. In this movie, Harry was mostly seen in Hogwarts as well. So if you want to go with the traditional Hogwarts look, you can follow the previous guide as shown above. But what is also seen in this movie, and the movie before it, was the game we all Potter heads want to play at least once, you guessed it right, it’s Quidditch and with that comes the beautiful Quidditch outfits. Therefore, that is the costume guide which we will be covering here.

Gryffindor Robe

Product Page

The biggest reason to why we love the game so much is because of the killer looks of its robe. Quidditch costume is one of the highly recommended and worn suits of all time. Unlike the previous Gryffindor robe cloak that we used which was entirely black in color, this one uses crimson color with yellow strips, what an elegant combination. To know from far away that which house you are playing for. The Gryffindor emblem has been doing that job well enough.

Quidditch Goggles

Product Page

Speed, adrenaline rush and a thirst to win but in doing that so, you would want to save your eyes from the heavy winds blowing against it, along with the dust and dirt in the wind. These goggles do the job as they are made just like the movie ones. The golden snitch on each side of it that makes it all the more unique and shows us the attention to detail given to the product. Additionally, the goggles have 100% protection from the ultraviolet rays of the sun so that is one bonus most people with sore eyes would look forward to.

Flying Broomstick

Product Page

Can you fly without your broomstick? Of course not. This item ensures that you can do just that and also that you are not a Muggle. The item goes fantastically with the rest of the costume. Everything has been done with finesse skills from the kickstand to the runes which are carved to the stick of the broom to make it look better than just a plain stick.  So unless you know how to do the unsupported flight like Lord Voldemort, you would need this broomstick to play Quidditch.

Quidditch Helmet

Product Page

Nobody likes falling on their head and injuring themselves, or getting hit in the head by a Quidditch ball without any protection; it’s not only bad for health but quite embarrassing too. So you have got to purchase this helmet. This item is also steampunk themed just like the goggles, so they go along together really well. It fits kids as well as the adults well, so they can buy one for themselves too if they are cosplaying Harry.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

The third installment of the Harry Potter series was one of my favorites as Harry was seen in action doing duel magic in it and the plot revolves around a prisoner named Sirius Black who is the prisoner of Azkaban as the title states. The attire worn by Harry was like any other ordinary kid wearing his windbreaker and t-shirt and khakis.

Sports Jacket

Product Page

The most prominent part of the entire outfit is the jacket. So it is imperative that we choose a good one that suits you in terms of texture, looks and also equals the one seen in the movie. We present to your jacket of the all-famous brand Adidas; it matches Harry Potter’s jacket well as you can see for yourself. The quality is praise-worthy as 100% polyester has been used in crafting the piece.

Light Blue T-shirt

Product Page

The colors of this tee are eye-catching, elegance at its best, being Carolina and Navy blue. The preshrunk cotton with which it has been made from removes the discomfort factor that you might experience in other tees. Here’s one fashion advice to you not to tuck the tee in, as I’ve seen many people too. Harry doesn’t do that. Cheap in price and can get your money’s worth it.

The Khakis

Product Page

Last but certainly not the least come the pants which if you want, can be skipped, unlike the other ones. If you already have a khaki pant, then you can use those, however, if you don’t then buy this one to complete your Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban costume. For your footwear, you can grab any shoe although brown colored ones are more suggested.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

After seeing the last Quidditch Costume, this one is quite a looker! Out of all the things that happen during this movie, besides everything going on in the movie, the crust of the movie is the Triwizard tournament. In which Harry also takes part and is seen wearing the costume pictured above. There is something magical with the gear that people began to ask that how can they dress up like that. Well, we will tell you how just keep following the guide and you will have your costume in no time.

Harry Signature Robe

Product Page

The first item you have to purchase this robe which is the most visible part of the outfit. You might confuse it with the robe that we showed you with the first costume one, but without a doubt, it’s entirely different. The biggest difference between the two is in the lace, as they are clearly shown on the front. It is affordable.

Potter Casual Attire

Product Page

You can get them both from the above. Even though they are not seen as much as you will be wearing the robe over them, but nevertheless they are vital if you want to execute the perfect Harry Potter look. If you want to skip this item, then you can wear a black pant and any red colored shirt preferably burgundy red colored, but then again the charm of any cosplays lies in its details.

Black Fingerless Gloves

Product Page

Last installment of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire costume guide, a pair of gloves to go along with the remainder of the items. The pair we have chosen is such where we have given price the highest priority; however, all the while trying not to settle for looks or quality. The appearance doesn’t matter, as long as they are black fingerless gloves, they would be okay. These gloves are one of the lowest prices you’re going to find on the market.

Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix

The fifth movie of the series is here; we again witness such clothing from Harry Potter, which is quite public. Because in this film Harry was seen out of the school more. In the previous movies we’ve shared a lot of uniforms that were worn by Harry in and out of Hogwarts, this is why we thought it would be a nice change of pace for you to see something casual. You’re going to like it as you can also wear it after you have done cosplaying him, on other occasions.  This one is also made up of three items, just like the last two movies, a hoodie, a jacket and the pant.

Grey Sweatshirt

Product Page

Let’s begin Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix costume guide with the hoodie sweatshirt. You would appreciate, how much this item matches Harry Potter’s. Well, except for the strings which can easily be taken off. This hooded sweatshirt is also Oxford colored and the fabric used to make it is of supreme quality i.e. no compromise on your comfort. It is available in multiple sizes and hence would fit you with ease.

Navy jacket

Product Page

Over the hooded sweatshirt, you would be wearing this jacket. But why would one want to wear multiple winter clothing items? The reason was told earlier; the entire series is set somewhere in Scotland which is a cold place to be, so it is important that you wear warm clothing. It is navy in color and is filled with pockets on the inside of it for your convenience to carry accessories, after all, Harry Potter does need to carry items as well.

Grey Dress Pants

Product Page

Then what’s left is the pant. The first thing to look for when choosing a pant for any cosplays is that it should match in color and good in quality. Remaining parts such as design are always the same or just with minute differences. This pant fulfills both of these requirements; it is dark gray in color and is ‘premium’ in quality. After the pant you would be thinking about the shoes, so, just like the last one, you can wear any pair you have, and that would complete your costume.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

The sixth movie in the series, Half-Blood Prince opened to positive reviews along with immediate commercial success, breaking the record for the biggest single-day worldwide gross. Lord Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the wizarding and Muggle worlds and has chosen Draco Malfoy to carry out a secret mission. Severus Snape makes an Unbreakable Vow with Draco’s mother, Narcissa, to protect Draco and fulfill the assignment if he fails. Harry along with Albus Dumbledore plan to how to overcome them all. Now Harry was mostly seen outside Hogwarts for the better part of the movie, the attire he wore a bridge between teenager group and adult wear i.e. suitable to both and can be worn on many occasions.

Red Jacket

Product Page

Let us cover the most important things first of the costumes first. And in this case, it happens to be the red track jacket which comes over the Ringer T-Shirt. You can buy the jacket straight from our stores and trust me when I say; you will not be let down. The precision with which it has been done is whimsical and of course comfort level of it is out of this world. You can imagine the comfort level as it is first of all the cotton fabric and secondly, the viscose lining did on it. Other than that you are getting it at a big discount and free shipping, and did we mention that this is the best place to buy the jacket?

White T-shirt

Product Page

We chose this tee for the guide because we provide the best product at the lowest prices. At such a low price, it is a giveaway. The T-Shirt will give you good dust repellency and breathability. No need to talk about the colors and matching of the tee to the one worn by Harry as you can observe for yourself.

Whether you are cosplaying or are impersonating someone for a distinct occasion or just wearing outfits for casual events, you would want your pant to be comfy. This is just that giving you maximum comfort so that you sit, walk, stand, run, and etc. all with no discomfort at all. This item, like the previous one, made from the finest quality cotton giving it the comfort you seek for yourself.

Blue and White Sneakers

Product Page

We had been skipping the footwear for the last few costumes of Harry Potter as they hadn’t been that important, but if you want to get the perfect outfit, then you have to get these sneakers, as seen on Harry. The small detailing done on the footwear is breathtaking. This is because the brand is Levis and they do not do anything short of ‘perfect’. The soles are rubber made and give it the comfort you need to wear it all day. Purchasing this would conclude the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince costume.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1

The last book of the series is finally here. The story follows Harry Potter on a quest to find and destroy Lord Voldemort’s secret to immortality – the Horcruxes. Voldemort’s power is growing stronger. He now has control over the Ministry of Magic and Hogwarts. Harry, Ron, and Hermione decide to finish Dumbledore’s work and find the rest of the Horcruxes to defeat the Dark Lord. But little hope remains for the Trio, and the rest of the Wizarding World, so everything they do must go as planned. As Harry races against time and evil to destroy the Horcruxes, he uncovers the existence of three most powerful objects in the wizarding world: the Deathly Hallows. We now look at the costume wore by Harry looking at each element separately. Ready to see them? Let’s begin!

This is simply due to the reason they look the same, and also because if you are someone who is following multiple Harry Potter costume guides, then you wouldn’t have to buy an extra item.

The Sneakers

Product Page

You might think that those are the same as the previous ones we showed you but as a matter of fact, they do have paramount differences that one should not avoid if they are taking the Harry Potter costume seriously. You must have heard the name, Polo, which is a stamp of quality, so leave your worries behind and there is no need for a second thought. The sneakers are Newport Navy in color and have synthetic soles that are comfy. You can skip them and use any navy colored sneakers, but then again to get the impeccable Harry Potter style, purchase these and complete your costume.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2

Harry, Ron, and Hermione continue to find the rest of Voldemort’s Horcruxes, until Harry discovers that one is at Hogwarts, they flee there as soon as possible, but Voldemort instantly finds out about their mission. The battle is drawn at Hogwarts as many people fight to protect Harry Potter. Harry then realizes that people are always dying for his mistakes and then eventually confronts Voldemort for the last time. Along the way, crucial secrets are unraveled, and the mysterious but legendary Deathly Hallows reappear. As we have reached the final costume guide of the series. This is the most successful film in the entire Harry Potter series and immediately rose to the top of the charts, among all the top grossing movies ever. And naturally, with a movie of this much brilliance, it is inevitable that it motivates people and hence they would want to copy things such as its costumes. This is why this particular outfit of Harry became one of the most famous ones, which is why we have done this guide to show you what to do to be just like him.

Brown Jacket

Product Page

Harry Potter fans from this entire costume were crazy as hell for this one, the jacket. Setting the whole ‘tone’ of the attire, even in the fight against Lord Voldemort, he wore it for almost the entire movie. After you realize the importance of it, you would know that such an item should be bought from a place where you not only get the quality you are looking for but also at a reasonable place. After what we’ve shown in the rest of the Harry Potter guides above, we know you wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. This is the place where high-quality suede leather and viscose lining being done on it.

Grey T-shirt

Product Page

What is it with Harry Potter and his love for Ringer T-Shirts? So far wherever we have had to include a tee, it had to be a Ringer one. But this one is different from the former ones in only the color as there is no design difference in all of the Ringer T-Shirts. These are Oxford gray and black in color, and are made for athletes, so naturally, they are built to last.  We don’t know if it can repel Yew or not, which is used to make Voldemort’s wand. So why don’t you buy it and fight the Dark Lord to find out?

Dark Blue Jacket

Product Page

A jacket and a tee, hmm! You would think that the upper part is done, but no, Harry does the same thing that he has done in most of the movies; wear triple items over one another. But we don’t hear anyone complaining because it does look exquisite, and other than that, there is this freezing weather we have always been talking about. These jackets are dark blue colored, splendid in quality and are also super comfortable because we have to make sure that when fighting against Lord Voldemort, Harry doesn’t lose just because he was feeling discomfort; that would be an embarrassing way to die.

Blue Denim Pants

Product Page

The jean from the previous guide can be used here. If you don’t have it, definitely check it out. Moving forward, the footwear isn’t of any problem and any footwear can be worn, although sneakers are more preferred. So it would be better if you purchased the sneakers provided in the last guide or the ones given in the guide before that. Getting your hands on both of these will complete your costume.

Additional Items

Now some of the signature items without which all the above are incomplete. You can wear what Harry wears but there is a difference between dressing and impersonating, and we potter heads are dead serious about this stuff. No detail should be left behind, putting forward some of the stuff you need to complete your cosplays and they are integral for all Harry Potter costumes.

Harry’s Glasses

Product Page

You would have already guessed the first item on the list; the one and only, glasses of the wizard Harry Potter. As we told you before that these props are damn essential for you because, I feel that without it, all of the costumes are useless. Just for a second, think real hard, have you ever seen Harry Potter without his glasses? The answer is no, and the same should be the answer if you are thinking of whether you should skip this item.

The Wand

Product Page

What are a wizard without his wand and one doesn’t stand a chance against Lord Voldemort without it? So how do you expect to do it without your wand? This wand can also be used to deal with the Death Eaters and Snatchers too, given if they show up. We don’t usually buy these stuff every day so it’s hard to estimate the actual value and can get charged extra if not paid any caution. There are many other costlier wands out there which are, of course, better quality wise. But I prefer buying a wand that doesn’t cost a leg and an arm, all the while looking like an actual wand.

And with that final Item, we end this magical journey we had. We hope you found it useful and all your queries and doubts are now gone. Choose whatever version of Harry You like and although the story has ended, who knows your magic brings the charm back to the party. From a schoolboy to a stud, from uniform to casual wear, it has everything you need. So be quick and complete any of these Harry Potter costumes and fight the good fight against the Dark Lord.
