Hermione Granger Halloween Costume Accessories for 2012

by SusanM

Be creative this Halloween with these Hermione Granger costume accessory ideas

Hermione Granger is a popular choice for a Halloween costume. She's the main female character from the Harry Potter series so the top choice. (If you're looking for other female characters from Harry Potter for Halloween Luna Lovegood, Ginny or Molly Weasley are good choices too.)

When creating your Halloween look a Hogwart's gown is the obvious choice for your Hermione costume. But if you don't add something special to this standard costume you're just another 'run-of-the-mill" Hermione character for Halloween. One of the many that will be out and about on Halloween. So how can you make your Hermione stand out from the others?

Accessories matter is a rule that applies to costumes as well as fashion. By picking the right accessories you can make your interpretation of Hermione stand out from the crowd. Your accessories may be something you find at home. A couple of big books (since Hermione had such an addiction to reading) is one idea. Although books might become rather heavy and awkward to carry around on Halloween.

There's also some great accessories you can buy. Some are more obvious choices than others. The all essential wand and optional wig are in this category. Some accessories are only really suited to Halloween (like the wig) while others can be kept long after the holiday. Great ones to keep are the time turner, Crookshanks and Hermione's bag.

Which accessory you decide to use all depends on what image of Hermione you want to create for Halloween.

The Time Turner

This Time Turner featured in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. It's a beautiful rendering of the object that helped Hermione attend double classes but to also save Harry's godfather Sirius Black and Buckbeak. It symbolizes Hermione's academic prowess as well as the fight for what is good and fair. A theme that runs through the Harry Potter books. 

This is an accessory that can be kept beyond Halloween. One word of warning though. It's fragile. So care needs to be taken on Halloween night. This means it's not a good choice for a younger child who might be rough with it.

Hermione's Wand

This is an obvious accessory for a Hermione costume but it's an essential. It's a fun idea is to memorize a few simple spells from the Harry Potter series so the wand can be an integrated part of the costume and not just held as decoration too. 

This wand is one of the cheaper wands available so it's good for a younger Harry Potter fan. Amazon does have a selection of Hermione wands in different price ranges though. So you can also choose one that's less of a basic costume accessory and more of a keepsake if you want.

Hermione's Beaded Bag

I flipped when I found this really gorgeous replica of Hermione's bag from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. This bag is a really creative costume accessory. it also symbolizes Hermione's ability to plan ahead, expect the unexpected and her general cleverness. Although the bag doesn't have an expansion charm on it like Hermione's it does have 2 secret pockets for stuff. 

This bag is definitely one that can be kept after Halloween and used daily.

Hermione's Hair

For those who want the realistic Hermione hair style or those who don't have brown hair a wig is another essential costume accessory. (I think the wand is more essential but it really depends how realistic you want to be with the costume.) 

The wig isn't really something that can be used in "normal" life after Halloween. But it can be used for pretend play if your child is still in the make believe play stage.

Hermione's Cat

Yes I especially went looking for Crookshanks - Hermione's rather badly behaved cat. I thought this would be another creative Halloween costume accessory idea. Crookshanks is much lighter and easier to carry around than a pile of books too.

This is also another accessory idea that can be kept beyond Halloween night. I think that's better value for money than buying things that can only be used during the holiday season, especially for an accessory item.
