my husband and i spent the day in the city yesterday exploring the new harry potter exhibit. it was a really fun look inside the imaginary movie world of those beloved hogwarts wizards and witches. there was so much to see... set pieces, movie costumes, original props, and movie magic secrets revealed. from an artistic point of view, it must have been so exciting to recreate this world for the big screen!
i loved seeing all the attention to every tiny detail, especially on the smallest of things - the buttons on the robes, the carvings on the wands, the wizard money, the packaging of the candy, all the graphic pieces that were made like the newspapers and textbooks and wizard magazines. some of my favorite things up close were professor umbridge's office (all pink, i loved the drapes), the griffendor dorms including contents of harry and ron's trunks, the yule ball gowns of hermione and cho, the marauders map, and the boggart wardrobe - such a beautiful piece.
creative imagination like this on such a grand scale is just so inspiring... if you can dream it, you can create it! simply magical.
