Harry Potter Launch Party Superfans - Day 2

August 7, 2018

Hello Beautiful,  

 

Welcome to our second Harry Potter Feature Fan Special blog! The following Superfans were interviewed by our very own Rita Skeeter during the Harry Potter shop launch on Saturday 28th July.  

 

Today we are introducing our lovely regular customers, an adorable family – Chris, Lily and Mia, as well as Vicky, and William – two other Superfans who attended on the day.  

 

Chris, Lily, and Mia (aka Snotface) 

 

Hi Chris, Lily and Mia!  

Thank you for coming today, it's always lovely to see you. Please help yourself to some cake. (Mia chooses a Golden Snitch cupcake!) 

 

 

Who is your favourite character? 

Chris: "Bellatrix Lestrange and Professor Umbridge" 

Lily: "Luna Lovegood" 

Mia: "Snitch" (very good choice, Mia! Golden Snitches are very cool!) 

 

Why is Bellatrix your favourite character? 

Chris: "Bellatrix is beautiful! And they're well written characters."  

 

What is your favourite item in the shop? 

Lily: "I have a wand, purse, and bag, I love those."  

 

If you could own any item from the Harry Potter series, what would it be? 

Chris: "Bellatrix's wand and mask" 

Lily: "I would have everything!"  

 

Which is your favourite book? 

Chris: "The Deathly Hallows" 

Lily: "The Goblet of Fire" 

 

Which is your favourite film? 

Chris: "The Deathly Hallows Part 2 – the first one is quite slow going but the second part with the Battle of Hogwarts is really exciting." 

Lily: "I think Goblet of Fire as well." 

 

Which Hogwarts House are you? 

Chris: "Gryffindor" 

Lily: "Hufflepuff" 

 

 

How cute is little Mia eating her cupcake?! Chris and Lily have talked many times about having a Harry Potter themed wedding and how easy it would be to pull it off with stock from the shop! They are always so friendly and we always have a laugh with them when they pop in to see us. We wish you all the best with your upcoming nuptials, and here's to a very long and happy life together (you can't get rid of Lily now, Chris) 

 

 

Thanks for talking to us!

Vicky 

 

I pulled Vicky aside to chat to me after noticing her Gryffindor hoodie and slightly overwhelmed face. She said she was currently decorating her bedroom so looking for some key pieces to make the space really special, and thought our new range was really cool, with some great bits for her new room!  

 

 

What is your favourite item in the shop? 

"The Luminarts are amazing!"  

 

If you could own any item from the Harry Potter series, what would it be? 

"I'd have a full wand collection!" 

 

Who is your favourite character? 

"Sirius Black" 

 

Why is Sirius your favourite character? 

"Because he's not a bad man, even though he was portrayed to be one." 

 

Who is your least favourite character? 

"Bellatrix Lestrange – because she killed Sirius!" 

 

Which is your favourite book? 

"The Philosopher's Stone" 

 

Which is your favourite film? 

"The Prisoner of Azkaban" 

 

Which Hogwarts House are you? 

"Gryffindor!" 

 

Vicky said she had enjoyed Harry Potter as a child, and then as a teenager became disenchanted and ignored it for a long time. Now as an adult she is able to appreciate and enjoy it again. We love that Harry Potter is so appealing to so many age groups and different denominations of people! 

 

Thanks Vicky, it was lovely to meet you and we hope you managed to find everything you wanted to make your bedroom special.

William 

 

William is nine years old, and his Mum who was with him at the launch said the range was better than other shops they had attended, and was much more affordable, which is great. We want to be able to provide a good range of things to our Superfans, whatever your budget. 

 

 

Hi William,  

I don't need to ask which House you're in as I can clearly see you're a Ravenclaw by theT shirt you are wearing – we will have to get a photograph of you! I'm a Ravenclaw too.  

 

Who is your favourite character? 

"I like Hermione Granger and Cho Chang."  

 

Who is your least favourite character? 

"I don't like Snape, or Sirius Black in Prisoner of Azkaban." 

 

Which is your favourite book? 

"The Deathly Hallows" 

 

Which is your favourite film? 

"The Deathly Hallows part 2" 

 

What is your favourite item in the shop? 

"I like the Hogwarts house phone cases" 

 

If you could own any item from the Harry Potter series, what would it be? 

"Lucius Malfoy's wand/cane! I have Dumbledore and Fleur Delacor's wands."  

 

Malfoy's wand is certainly an in demand item! You're the first person we've met who has Fleur Delacor's wand! She's a very underrated character we think!  

 

Thanks for talking to us William, it was lovely to meet you.
