Hi, I'm Becca and I'm a Harry Potter addict...

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

It's true. I read the books, watch the movies and even dress up as the characters. I am like those Star Wars nerds who dress up and go to the conventions. (Except I havent'been to a Harry Potter convention). We are taking it a step further in two weeks and going to Orlando to see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Islands of Adventure. (We are also going to visit friends and family there). I am passing my love on to Cian, who can say Potter and loves Dobby the house elf.

I am so excited and can't wait! In anticipation for the park and the movie coming out in November I am re-reading The Deathly Hallows. Turns out, there is so much I forgot from the 72-hours it took me to read the book the first time.

I am a little sad because these two movies means the end of Harry Potter anticipation. I didn't start die-hard following the story until The Goblet of Fire came out but since then I have been there to get the following three novels the weekend they came out. I got The Order of the Phoenix in Venice (after being told by an uppity bookkeeper that we would not find that book in all of Italy) and finished reading it on our long train and Eurail trips in a week. I was there at midnight to get The Half Blood Prince and The Deathly Hallows. Heck, I even dressed up as Tonks for the last book release. This should show you how truly nerdy I am:

Midnight book release party in Orlando. They gave us tatoos and glasses and we got to make our own wands!

Even Steve partook in the nerdyness

Sixth book release party, I am dressed as Tonks and drinking my butterbeer here..

Back home right before I started reading the book, Steve was my little Olivander that night and made my wand.

This was Cian's room before it was Cian's room

I have promised that I won't dress up when we go to the park in Orlando, but I can't promise not to be a total geek walking around Hogwarts and Hogsmeade.
