Through the power of magic one Harry Potter fan has dedicated a whole wall to the first page of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
Ok so maybe she didn’t use magic- she is a muggle after all- instead she used a projector and a steady hand… and she has some tips for anyone who may want to try something similar.
Muggle-born witch Meredith McCardle was sorted into Ravenclaw house and, by her own admission, has Slytherin tendencies so it makes sense that she would have such passion and dedication to something she loves.
Using Twitter as her platform, Ms McCardle gave tips and hints to other Potterheads who wanted a page on their wall too:
- Do not rely on the projector to stay still and straight.
Measure both sides from the ceiling with a tape measure to make sure it’s straight. Adjust projector accordingly.
- Use a smudge-free pencil (if it exists)
- Use good quality paint to avoid a second coat.
Amazing! Well done, Meredith!
The Hogwarts/Harry Potter fandom is one Tumblr has been obsessing over since forever and, despite the last movie being released back in 2011, they’re still going strong!
Some of the funniest observations ever made about Harry Potter and the wizarding universe can be found on the blog site, and here are our favourites…
The Royal Mint is keeping fairly tight lipped about the coin, and so we don’t know yet what it will look like but we assume it’s likely to feature the monster, and possibly the mouse who bravely stands up to him.
From his Tumblr page, Ben shows us some of his best work to date- Harry Potter themed Valentine’s cards! Not all of them are PG13- be warned- and they are all slightly awkward, pun-filled, and full of magic.
If you love someone who should’ve attended Hogwarts then we have the cards for you, but be warned- there is the occasional swear word and distinct lack of romance…
The creator, Renaud Plante contacted me this week to share the video and I just had to share it with you as I think you will all love it.
In the short film, which is called Un monde à découvrir (A World to Discover), a young boy goes to a library and discovers, in books and their words, a universe that will follow him until the end of his life. I’m sure a lot of you will relate.
Thanks to educator Terrance Sims, the class were able to accurately recreate some of the most iconic book covers and pay homage to Black voices. Sims ensures each Black History Month is marked by creating a project meant to highlight the talent, strength, and importance of Black leaders, artists, and culture.
This year’s project was inspired by the class’s book club who came up with the idea, and Sims gave it the title ‘Representation is Key’. The recreations (below) are really well done, and the pride the kids feel in themselves and the Black icons, is clear. Read More
