12 Days of Fandom Ornaments: #11

My Christmas tree is a mix of ornaments from my childhood and ones from later on in my life. Many of them are related to my favorite fandoms, naturally. I thought I would showcase one every other day in December in a 12 Days of Fandom Ornaments series.

Day 11: Hedwig

I got this as a present when my family went hunting for ornaments because this silver stag reminds me of Harry’s Patronus.

Day 3: Snowman!Harry

Ornament03-02

This is one of several handmade Harry Potter ornaments I bought from Justin Finch Fletchley a few years back at a Yule Ball in Washington, D.C. (and I realize that if you don’t know anything about WRock, that sentence must be confusing, but it’s the truth). All the ornaments feature fun Harry Potter-related drawings; this one is a snowman decorated to look like Harry… or perhaps Harry has been magically transformed into a snowman?

Thing Thursday: Jurassic Cups

I saw Jurassic World in theaters in June, then I recently came across these cups from McDonalds when going through some of my boxes from my childhood and thought I should make them a post here.

Thing Thursday: Harry Potter Pops

I had some Hot Topic “Hot Cash” to spend, and these new POP figures were too adorable to resist. I mean, seriously, Snape doesn’t get much cuter than this.

Wildcard Wednesday: Harry’s Birthday Cake

Every year for Harry’s birthday, my local Harry Potter group throws a birthday party. And every year, Miriah makes an impressively magical cake. This year, she went traditional. In addition to butterbeer cake pops, she made this great, movie-canon cake:

The hardest part was lighting it. It took five of us to block the wind long enough to get the candles all lit. Another breeze came up just as we were finishing singing the Harry Birthday song, so we stood back and let “Harry” blow the candles out on his own.

But, just as we moved in to cut the cake, most of the candles magically relit themselves! It took a few more breezes for the candles to finally go out completely.

Then, of course, came the eating of it :-)
