Harry Potter MotW #92

Harry Potter Moment of the Week 

Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a  meme hosted by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts  and Me @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote, object from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself!  How to join up &  upcoming topics here.

Hello fellow Potter-Addicts! As you read this, I'll be hitting up Day 2 of BEA'15 so I'll likely only be checking in this evening and hoping over if I get a chance...if not, I'll definitely stop by as soon as I can so please bear with me ♥

This week is a free week and as usual, I like to go back and revisit topics I previously missed for whatever reason. This week I went with:

Must have fandom items

There are quite a few must-have items from the Harry Potter fandom that I don't yet have (sssssoooooonnn my precioussss) *ahem*, like a few of the new book editions, a Harry Potter trunk, a Deathly Hallows pocket watch, an 'I solemnly swear..' thermal mug, THIS boxed set, the Harry Potter Wizard's Collection DVD set, hell yes a JKR Barbie doll and about 50 various HP t-shirts... But for this post, I figured that I'd focus on the must-have fandom items I really HAD to have, and therefore already own hehe:

*by the way, all the above links are to my HP Pinterest board and are safe as can be ;)*

Official Harry Potter Wand replica and The Marauder's Map

The first fandom items I acquired were a Harry Potter replica wand from a dear friend and The Marauder's Map from the boyfriend. Admittedly, I was a little bummed out when the map arrived and there were no moving dots showing where everyone was in Hogwarts (hell even if they didn't move at all, I would have liked them to be included) but it's to be expected I guess when you live in the Muggle world XD  Of course, my wand had to be Harry's wand, I actually teared up when I got it! It was a great moment all around ♥

Mini cauldron, lightning bolt necklace and Gryffindor bookmark

The mini cauldron and lightning bolt necklace aren't official HP merch, but I still display them on my shelf next to my books.  The cauldron was a gift from another friend who knew I'd get a kick out of having my own. It's even in actual cast iron and everything, it's super heavy for it's size!  The necklace was something I passed by one day at the mall and couldn't resist picking up. Then there's my Gryffindor bookmark which I love^^

Gryffindor & Hogwarts tshirts

Nerdy tshirts! One can never have enough, right?! I *had* to have some Harry Potter ones of course, and being me, I had to show my Gryffindor Pride^^  And well, the Hogwarts/Disney one I just think is really cool. Like I said, there are about a million more that I want/need but at least I have a couple atm.

Time Turner necklace/keepsake

More recently, I got myself this pretty^^ while roaming my local bookstore. I'd been eyeing it for a while and this time I figured, screw it, I'm getting myself a treat. I'd LOVE to get one of those gold ones like in the movie but they're a little over my budget atm >.<

My very own Deathly Hallows ink

And finally, this isn't really an item, but it was a must-have for over 5 years now and well, I finally got my beloved Deathly Hallows tattoo done on my inner wrist. I know that some people think it's upside down, but I wanted it for me, to inspire me and well since it's not text, my tattoo artist agreed XD  The lines might look a little wonky to some of you, but that's because it was very fresh and still kind of oozing ink. Anyway, I love it to pieces and I still can't stop admiring it after like 3 weeks!

What are some of your must-have Harry Potter fandom items?


  1. I have the Maurader's Map too :D I love it! I was also a little disappointed about the no movement, but oh well. I did a post already on all my Harry Potter merchandise and what I wanted for a free week I believe. I have Dumbledore's wand because I wanted the Elder's wand. I have figurines of Hagrid, Sirius, and Mad Eye as well. We have pictures of Zane and I at Harry Potter World in Orlando in a Harry's eye glasses photo frame. We have more, but it's hard not to stock up on all the Harry Potter goodies isn't it. I love the tattoo, and I love that you placed it for yourself!!! The time turner is next on my list :D

    1. I would even have settled for non-moving labels that would have at least shown the characters hanging out in their usual haunts...but like you said: oh well! The Elder Wand is a must-have for me too^^ I want to look up your old post now and see a picture :D The figurines sound lovely and Harry Potter world is SO a bucket list trip!! Thank you ♥

  2. Wow, great tattoo! :) I've seen similar ones around Pinterest and I love how understated it is - and you have to be a HP addict to know what it means (it's like belonging to a club) :)
    I wish I could go to Harry Potter World, too - I'll definitely try to take my kid once he's old enough, and I'll probably fangirl more than he will :D

    1. Thank you Kaja ♥ Yup Harry Potter World is a MUST. I have a feeling all the fangirling we'd be doing there would be exhausting but oh-so worth it XD

  3. Your tattoo is AWESOME! LOVE. IT! ALL of your HP memorabilia is amazing. ❤ I would love to have Sirius's wand one day. I eyed it at the Universal store they have here at the Orlando airport and had to force myself to walk away, lol.

    1. THANK YOU Lee!! :D Sirius' wand is another one I'd love to own of course, but then again, I feel like I pretty much want ALL THE WANDS!

  4. Your tattoo is perfection. It's not upside down to you and that's what matters!


I LOVE comments & do my best to return every one a.s.a.p. ♥
