Happy Halloween from the Wizarding World in Tyler
I have the greatest co-workers. When I asked if anyone wanted to dressed up as Harry Potter characters with me, almost all of them joined in!
You probably already know that I'm a Harry Potter fanatic. I've read all of the books, own all the films and listen to the audiobooks. I haven't attended a convention yet, but that's because the latest one sold out in hours. No, really.
So, when I decided to dress up as Hermione Granger for Halloween, my friends at work were amused, but not at all surprised. Expecting to get shot down in flames, I asked a couple of them to join me in portraying Harry and Ron. To my surprise they said, 'Yes!' Well, in truth, they said if you make it easy, I'll participate in a photo. That was enough for me.
I teamed up with our incredible receptionist to hunt down graduation robes, we printed off Hogwarts House crests to pin onto the robes, and asked everyone to wear a colorful scarf or tie. Nearly everyone in the office joined the group!
We even had two that went above and beyond to portray Dobby the House Elf and Bellatrix Lestrange! Look closely enough, and you might even spot Waldo hidden in Hogwarts!
