HP again

Hi all,

Nothing very new to share... We had been to Vineet's office on Friday. They had organised a little something for spouses and kids. The event was great - games, food, music, magic and a lot of fun. The kids had a fancy dress competition and they were to dress up as their favorite superhero... well, I got to know this only on Friday morning; so with the little time I had in hand, I thought spiderman would be too difficult and settled for Harry Potter once again.;-) I gathered some supplies; bought some more in a 15 minute shopping spree and set to work.
I got the idea for the amazing wand from the Instructables site... they used brown paint and distressed it with black; since I was out of brown, I went with copper and made a metallic wand with some help from my hot glue gun. I think the wand looked amazing. Then I made a normal wizard's hat and something that was supposed to be a broom. I gave him a golden ball (to take the place of the Quidditch 'snitch')... an oversized black t-shirt with some ribbon sewn to it; and a cape completed the look. I did call my good little friend, Sharanya, a huge HP fan, to get her inputs (and so as not to get the colors wrong!).. I added the Griffindor color on the hat. And this time I didn't forget the scar ;-)

Aaryan didn't let me click a full picture of him in the costume; though he did let the office photographer do so.. I am still waiting for that one... And he won the first prize :-)

And this last one was clicked yesterday... Sports day in school.
