Need a Harry Potter character robe in a hurry and on the cheap? Read more to find out how you can create your own for about $15!
The family theme for our Halloween costumes this year is Harry Potter. The whole family is dressing as a Harry Potter character. Dad (Tim) is Severus Snape, Kelly is Harry Potter, and Hunter is Luna Lovegood.
My costume as Professor McGonagall was a little tougher to find, so I needed to create one from home, including a Harry Potter character robe for Professor McGonagall. I decided to take the easier version for this year’s costume and create a no sew costume using just material and ribbon as a tie. It took me less than 15 minutes to make a Harry Potter character robe for less than $15. It turned out amazing!
