Hogwarts Yule Ball

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

I'm back at Hogwarts for Winter Term, and I'm so excited that I came back in time for the Yule Ball!

Here's what I'm going to be wearing:



I wanted to wear a Regency-style dress, but I couldn't find one in a color I liked. They really weren't all that into bright colors back then, I guess. Anyway, this is my new choice and I love it.



I'm short so I wanted a bit of a heel, but not much if there's going to be lots of dancing!







I did choose a Regency hairstyle, though! And I went with yellow jewelry as a nod to my current house, Hufflepuff!

And finally, here's my date:



His name is Josh, and he goes to one of the wizarding schools in America. I met him in Flourish and Blotts while he was on vacation with his family. He's so sweet and I can't wait for everyone to meet him!

    Anastasia, I love the dress and shoes. Will that be your colors? I think you'll dance the night away with your dreamy guy too!! Love the topaz or amber jewelry, or am I looking a yellow diamonds?!! ::swoon:: Regency is sooo romantic and I hope your wizard reads you a bit of that kind of poetry from his Flourish and Blotts of ancient Greek poetry:

    "I run to you as the traveller runs towards shade when scorched by the sun"

    or... perhaps ancient Egyptian...

    To hear your voice is pomegranate wine to me:
    I draw life from hearing it.
    Could I see you with every glance,
    It would be better for me
    Than to eat or to drink.

    or Roman:

    Thus it will be; slender arrows are lodged in my heart,
    and Love vexes the chest that it has seized
    Shall I surrender or stir up the sudden flame by fighting it?
    I will surrender - a burden becomes light when it is carried willingly.
