Rita Skeeter from Harry Potter

Hello, I'm Rita Skeeter. I write for the daily prophet. 

While doing a harry Potter marathon I realized that Rita's outfits are really quite ridiculous and perfect. And I wanted to make one. Please read the following in Snape's voice--OBVIOUSLY. 

I didn't take too many progress photos while creating this costume because progress went so quickly, but I did manage to grab a few:

I bought a Marilyn Monroe wig on Ebay and restyled it to suit my needs. Curling pins and boiling water!

To the right you can see the lining of the jacket, which I pinned to my dress form to make sure it was fitted correctly. To the left you can see the finished jacket!

I didn't have any buttons that were the color I wanted, so I covered some blue buttons in scraps of worbla and painted them red!

Everyone loves a rebel, Harry.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Seriously, this outfit is absolutely perfect. I'm still not over how crazy-good it is! :D The fact that it was so quick and easy to make is even more mind-boggling!
