In Mrs. J's words:
These were pretty easy and fast costumes, but sometimes you need fast!
Hermione, a college graduation gown with a sticker of the House and a tie from a drawer worked just fine. We braided her hair then took it out just before the party.
Our Owl is wearing a huge sweatshirt, of my alma matter, so I just flipped it inside out. Then used white felt to make a hood, painted on eyes and the collar of Hedwig.
Our Soul Sucker (Dementor) took the most work. It's a vinegar jug with the back cut out then painted. The chest plate is poster board. Even the ribs are just bent poster board taped down and painted with shoe strings to attach it. It's a leftover Halloween scary creature black robe.We made all three the evening before and all from items we had at home.
My Humble THANKS As ALWAYS Mrs. J! Ü

If you don't have the time or the inclination to MAKE a costume for an event like a School Play or a Parade. If you've thought about it, but your heart, for whatever reason, JUST isn't in it...You can probably purchase a costume of the type you were planning to make...and maybe even for about the same as you might spend on the materials to MAKE a Harry Potter costume.
