Harry Potter Studios Tour

Here it is, the big one, the one we've all been waiting for...
Well, as you may have guessed from the title, I went to the Harry Potter Studios Tour in North London.
I am a huuuuge Harry Potter fan and ever since they announced a behind the scenes look into the making of Harry Potter I was on board.
It was one of the best experiences of my life. I am so interested in film studies and cinematography and art, everything was right up my street.
I took so many photos but I won't show them as not to spoil it for people who hope to go in the future. 

Emma, Dan, and Rupert's handprints. Emma and Dan's hands are tiny! I could only just fit my hand into Ruperts' 

Dumbledore, McGonagall, Snape. There is an unbelievable amount of detail on every single outfit. 

All the Gryffindor costumes. You can't see in this photo but behind me there was Dan's outfit from the sorting in philosopher's stone, which was so sweet and small!

The makeup used on set.

Luna Lovegood's attire, Evanna Lynch, who incase you weren't sure plays Luna, made a lot of the jewellery you see, including the radishes. What a creative gal!

Sherbet Lemon!

mmm butterbeer!

Number 4, Privet Drive

At the end of the tour, there is a shop (like always) and I couldn't resist buying a few bits.

The official guide, we prepaid for this with our tickets.

a few little bookmarks for free

A chocolate frog, with a real wizard card!

A souvenir glass available when buying butter beer.

A clapper board, which I've always wanted to have!

Hermione's time turner in a protective case.

 A pin to add to my collection from disney.

I had a really good experience at the studio tour and I would definitely recommend going, even if you're not the biggest fan of Harry Potter or you're interested in filmmaking.
