This year, I was part of a couples costume for the first time. We brainstormed for a while trying to think of good ones—and did we ever!—but we eventually decided to go with costumes inspired by the world of Harry Potter. We went to a party on Saturday for which the hosts dressed up as Harry and Ginny, so we thought it fitting.
We delved into Prisoner of Azkaban (Book 3) and The Order of the Phoenix (Book 5) to find descriptions of our characters (Harry’s first impressions of them) that would inspire us.
Here we are as Remus Lupin (a mild-mannered werewolf, former Marauder, and favorite Hogwarts teacher) and Nymphadora Tonks (a tough, animorphmagus/shape-shifter Auror):
Back story: Lupin and Tonks meet (presumably) while protecting Harry in Book 5 (The Order of the Phoenix), get married in Book 6 (Half-Blood Prince), and have a child in the final book (Deathly Hallows). They also die in the Battle of Hogwarts, and Harry is left to raise their child (Teddy Lupin).
What I would still like to know is: is Teddy a werewolf, or a shape-shifter, or both, or what?
