August 12, 2018

Hello Beautiful! 

 

Welcome to our final edition of our Harry Potter shop launch Superfan blog feature! Today we are showcasing our staff interviews so you can get to know us all a little bit better! We are all HUGE Harry Potter fans, so it only made sense for us to take part in this special Superfan feature!

Tori 

 

Hi Tori! 

"Hellooo!" 

 

You've come dressed as Draco Malfoy today, yes? 

"Yes! Quidditch captain Draco Malfoy, specifically." 

 

Who is your favourite character and why? 

"Draco Malfoy, and Lucius Malfoy – because they are f**king fabulous! I think Draco is really misunderstood. Lucius because he just has an air of awesomeness and class and THAT HAIR OMG! I'd love to own his hair!  I also like Luna Lovegood because she's a strong independent woman who isn't afraid to be who she is (and also her hair!) Bill Weasley – he's pretty badass, and hot!" 

 

Who is your least favourite character? 

"Dolores Umbridge, because she's just horrible really isn't she! And Percy Weasley, because he is immensely dull!" 

 

Which is your favourite book? 

"The Halfblood Prince - because of the plot twists. We see more of who Malfoy really is, and things start to get a lot darker." 

 

Which is your favourite film and why? 

"Same – The Halfblood Prince. This is the film where Draco Malfoy gets very attractive..." 

 

Which Hogwarts House are you? 

"Slytherin!" 

 

What is your favourite item in the shop? 

"Slytherin robes" 

 

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

"A hippogriff! Also Lucius Malfoy's cane/wand would be pretty epic."

 

Thank you, Tori!

Zoe 

 

Hi Zoe! Love your McGonagall costume by the way! 

 

Who is your favourite character and why? 

"Snape, he turns out to be an amazing guy in the end for the greater good, even though it makes everyone hate him.. and he's super sassy!" 

 

Who is your least favourite character? 

"Umbridge. Hate that cow more than Voldemort! That laugh, the sickly pink everywhere JUST STOP!" 

 

Which is your favourite book? 

"The Prizoner of Azkaban" 

 

Which is your favourite film? 

"Philosopher's stone - it's where the magic started for me and had me gripped" 

 

And which AWESOME PERSON forced you to watch it I wonder?? 

(It was me!) 

 

Which Hogwarts House are you? 

"Ravenclaw" 

 

What is your favourite item in the shop? 

"My Ravenclaw hoodie, the Ravenclaw satchel, Snitch necklace, Elder Wand.. and the invisibility cloak!" 

 

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

"Invisibility cloak or Dumbledore's pensieve" 

 

Thank you, Zoe!

Which is your favourite film? 

"The Philosopher's Stone" 

 

Which Hogwarts House are you?

Charlotte 

 

I'm not going to pretend I am talking to myself because that is just really weird. 

I'm just going to answer the questions! 

 

Who is your favourite character and why? 

"I have a few – I love Luna Lovegood because she's really special and unique. I love Molly Weasley because she's fierce. I love Neville Longbottom because he's brave. I love Ginny Weasley because she can do a Bat Bogey Hex. And Snape – because his story arc is just incredible and the strength it took to double cross Voldemort is astounding. Sirius Black, too." 

 

Who is your least favourite character? 

"I don't like Delores Umbridge because she's evil! I also hate Wormtail because I can't believe he would be so disloyal to his friends." 

 

Which is your favourite book? 

"The Order of the Phoenix – it's just so exciting when everyone is getting mobilised to take action against Voldemort. The plot thickens so much. But Harry Potter is bloody awful in it, such an angsty teenager. I mean, I don't blame him, but it's really upsetting to read at times, when he gets so cross with his friends." 

 

Which is your favourite film? 

"The Philosopher's Stone – mainly because it's most true to the book. Some of the later films are infuriating because they miss so much of the actual story and fill it with garbage." 

 

Which Hogwarts House are you? 

"Ravenclaw." 

 

What is your favourite item in the shop? 

"I would love a Ravenclaw hoodie, and Ravenclaw Luminart. I love the Chibi character mugs as well! And the Hedwig beanie. I really want the Knight Bus money box. There's so many things I would buy if I could." 

 

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

"Harry's invisibility cloak. Or a time turner. I think that would be quite interesting! Especially being able to use both to jump around through time without being spotted (so as not to upset the space-time continuum, obviously)"
