I just found this saved on the computer at work! We threw a Harry Potter midnight party two years ago when Deathly Hallows came out and I dressed like Bellatrix! Well, most of me did, as I have a time-turner around my neck. You can't quite make it out but my hair was awesome-crazy and my make-up was intense! There were black sparkles plastered across my face and head. The kids (there were 200 of them) kind of avoided me and I remember faux-attacking some troublesome Weasley twins. What a great night to remember!
I was going to go home after the party and start reading my copy of DH, but I fell asleep exhausted after a huge day of partying and working. The one image that sticks with me is this little boy, half-asleep, intensely reading the book at 12:15 as the party was breaking up. Like he was trying to cheat sleep and get in as much of the story as he could before his body gave out. So cute.
Oh, I am the one on the left!
