Premier photos

15 Jul

I don’t know if you’re aware, but I’m 8 months pregnant. If there’s a place and time a very pregnant woman shouldn’t be, it might be at a midnight showing of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 Premier. Still, I wouldn’t take back the experience for the world.

I had to do it big at the very end of such an epic story. I can’t tell you how empty I felt when I had read all the books. The only thing I looked forward to was the fact that there were still several movies left to come. Now, that is all over. It’s bittersweet.

Anyway, as I said, Captain J and I really wanted to make the most of the last movie. That means, we of course had to join the ranks of weirdos and dress ourselves to the nines in Harry Potter character garb. We decided to portray a married couple who was expecting a child in the final book of J.K. Rowling’s series.

Meet Tonks and Lupin.

As you can see, Tonks has had multiple looks. She has the unique ability to be able to change her appearance easily and quickly. This made it difficult to capture her character, but I think we did a good job…

And a kiss for my werewolf-

Isn’t dressing up fun? I hope I never get old.

My body was telling me I was old last night, though. My feet and back were oh-so-achy, but staying up all night was worth it to experience the end of the Harry Potter era!

I’m really glad I didn’t go into labor during all the excitement. There was no way I was taking off that wig. My hair was wet when I stuffed it in there. Wouldn’t that have been a sight? 🙂 There were no major problems unless you want to take into account the poor soul beside me who cried for the last twenty minutes of the movie. Bless her gryffindor heart, she just didn’t want to accept that the end was near.

    How fun! I, for one, think it would have made for an awesome photo op to give birth in a purple wig. 😉 You look darling as always!!!

    So you have inspired me to read all of the books. And when I am done you will be invited over for a “girls” weekend of Harry Potter movies. Oh there will also be yummy food and maybe even a playmate for the baby who knows.

      It’s always nice to be able to introduce another person to the wonderful world of HP. 🙂 Sounds fun…I bet you read them pretty quickly once you get started, though. I definitely did!

    […] that’s how it goes when you’ve got a child. I couldn’t go gallivanting off to the midnight premier like we did with Harry Potter. I must say, I felt just fine seeing it at 4ish in the afternoon. I must be getting […]
