Harry Potter stirs up interest for themed fancy-dress costumes

HollywoodNews.com: The media circus surrounding the release of the final Harry Potter film has sparked a huge interest in people wanting to look like J.K. Rowling’s characters, according to a leading online fancy dress company.

Daniel Radcliffe returns to play the lead role of the bespectacled wizard for the eagerly-anticipated eighth and final instalment when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 hits UK cinemas from July 15. With Potter fever sweeping the nation once more, costume company Fancy Dress Ball is being inundated with orders for costumes and accessories associated with the highest-grossing film series of all time.

“It has been a magical last few weeks,” said Fancy Dress Ball’s Paul Howcroft, who also revealed that sales of 70s fancy dress and 80s fancy dress items are rivalling the amount of Potter paraphernalia flying off the shelves at present.

“The Harry Potter films appeal to a wide variety of people of all ages and it’s no surprise really that so many people are choosing to get dressed up like somebody straight out of Hogwarts.

“We expect sales to increase further over the coming month or so as the new film hits the big screen and, given the success of the franchise already, I think I can confidently predict that becoming ‘Harry Potter’ for a few hours at least will be a timeless classic on the fancy dress circuit for years to come.”
