Harry Potter In The House!

Did I ever tell you that Harry Potter lives here? No? Most of the time he goes by the name of Joe or Joseph. When he is Harry, we fondly call him Joey Potter (read in a British accent).

So of course with Halloween a hop skip and a jump away, what does my Joe want to be...
Harry Potter.

I found the perfect Harry Potter robe online at Wholesale Costume Club, I must admit, I may have squealed like a little girl when I saw it for 2 reasons.
1. It's a deluxe robe
2. The cost. Did I mention it's Deluxe?

I will also admit that we both squealed like little girls when we got it.

I apologize for the poor photo quality, I was too excited to go and grab the big guy.

Honestly I was expecting a felt robe as being a "deluxe" robe as opposed to the practically sheer nylon/polyester blend most costumes are made of.

What we got, was BEYOND my expectations. It's literally a robe. Joe wears it as a bathrobe since Halloween is still a few weeks out. It's thick. It's plush. Joe will end up out growing this robe before it gives up. I don't have the slightest worry that it'll start pulling apart at the seams or running.This thing it solid.

I mean it even has a hood! This kid is set if we have the standard chance of snow NY Halloween.

The size was spot on too. I am always nervous to buy online, especially for Joe. I ordered him the large. The size chart said it's a 12-14 or about ages 8-10. Joe is about the size of a 10 yr old. I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best because L was a big as it got for that item.

It fit's him like it was made for him. Which it was of course because he's Harry Potter/Joey Potter.

See. Told ya.

The Wholesale Costume Club even has all the accessories! Ties, brooms, owls, hats, glasses, wands, other characters and robes!

Now I just have to wait for Jake to figure out what he wants to be so I can get ordering. He's thinking vampire, Thor, Iron Man, Mario, ninja and a blur of other ideas. Thankfully I already peeked and they have them all, so we are good to order as soon as he settles. The only thing he knows for sure, is he wants to have a mustache.

Wholesale Costume Club also sent me this link regarding Halloween, It's all about how to have fun and be safe with your little ones on Halloween.

What is your lil goblin going to be this year?


  1. I'm afraid he'll have to fight my 25-year-old daughter for the honor of being Harry. She and Harry have the same birthday; she has Firebolt; and she's worn a black cape for years. Great post. I'm going to become your newest follower and I hope you'll follow me too.


  2. Well I feel silly. Where do I click to follow? "Followers" doesn't work. Do I have to follow my email?


  3. Did you get it to work? When I first opened the blog, I had to refresh it to see it. Try that if you are still having problems. Heading your way now!
