Thanks, Annaleen. I have photos of some of my non-paper props at http://www.elkinspotter.com. It's my site for a walk-through replica of Diagon Alley that I built in my house two years ago. Ron's dress robes are in the gallery under "The Thrifty Witch." It was meant to represent the secondhand shop where Molly Weasley went, and I populated it with all kinds of odds and ends that didn't fit anywhere else -- Madam Rosmerta's sparkly shoes, Hagrid's mead tankard and umbrella, Celestina Warbeck's phonograph album, etc. Of course, now when I look at those pages, there are so many more things I wish I'd had time to do (or do better). For example, I just found a MUCH better fluffy pink vintage umbrella this summer, with a wooden handle instead of plastic. Of course, it's impossible to do everything perfectly, but it's also wonderful to give your all to a prop that has a special place in your heart. You clearly did that with your bag. :cheers
aha I had seen your site, that's where I encountered the owl treates! you did a wonderful job and even if you say that now you have more appropriate amterials, you worked with what you had at the time. any chance you have the broomstick guide scan? I really liked that. and so many of the other props!

Thanks to ecl and Barney... a couple of finished props (well... except for the beans themselves). Sorry for the poor quality pics... phone camera...

Barney, I took the pocket for the bank book and made a pocket on the last page for deposit slips. I kinda like it.

Great stuff guys... and thank you again!!!

@goldensnidget: OMG (closes her mouth again) . Those dressrobes are AWESOME! They are so detailled!
And that's a part of your house? ö Brilliant job on the Ollivander's shop too! I Love all the stuff!
Thank you! My friend Jeannine built the Ollivander's shop. It's her favorite!

I installed the display on the first floor of my house for Halloween 2009. It took up everything but the kitchen. When Halloween was over, I donated it to the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology for their Harry Potter event. After that, it traveled to a local zoo for display in 2010. I actually loved that setting -- it was in a greenhouse -- but the sets weren't really built for travel, and by the end of the season they had really taken a beating. I'm not sure how much the zoo was able to salvage. Fortunately I kept my favorite props, and hopefulhp has some of the rest.

Glad you liked it!

Here are four links for the Chocolate Frog box. Use the first one if you just want a color print of the box. Use the second two if you need separations to gild the box using a foil laminator. The fourth is the bottom of the box.

Incidentally, I have not been able to find a US distributor for the star-embossed foil they used to line the boxes, though I was able to get a friend to bring me some back from Germany.

@Mewmar, I can give you the broomcare handbook art if you want, but it isn't screen accurate. It's just some text I foiled over a generic leather background and attached to a little address book. I needed something small that would fit into the zippered case.

Your setup is absolutely BRILLIANT!! Oh, you did such a fabulous job on it all, I'm just enthralled with looking at the different shopfronts. This could be a never-ending project. Thanks for sharing this...it's truly MARVELOUS!

Hi ;D

I just wanted to let you know that after a year of searching fabric, beads, rope,..
I FINALY finished my Hermione Beaded Bag Prop/Replica!

Here's the link to my youtube video! :)

Homemade Hermione's Beaded Bag - YouTube
Great bag replica Anneleen, you can really see that great care was taken to put it all together, incidently I also watched 'Emma Watson and Me at the Harry Potter 7.2 WORLD PREMIERE' at around the 34 second mark I could see me waving my copy of Advanced Potion Making book around to get signed, just behind the lampost.

Wow! Thank you so much. I can't wait to use these at our neighborhood movie fest.

for the foil, something that looks similar but in circles not starts is the nutella foil. you could buy one of the big ones and have the foil and eat the nutella.

Hi mewmar,
Unfortunately here in the states, Nutella gold seal is just plain :0( That would be great if it did have circles on it.

I agree with Mewmar. Oh yes... please post with the Fleetwood polish.

@memar & woozelmom

Thanks for the tips. I haven't done foiling before, but I have time to play around with it.

@ this community at large

Is there a foiling process I can use without having to spend $500 for a laminating machine? I think there were some postings about this earlier, but I'm sorry, I'm not remembering all the details. Something about printing with a laser and then an inkjet? But is there a foil product that could be applied with a light iron or something?

@KellieMarie: the Gringotts bank book stuff looks great. Its quite interesting to see what inventive things people come up for these prop replicas.

After a little dry spell it looks like things are picking up nicely here. Thanks to KellieMarie, goldensniget, PotionMistress and Mewmar for their contributions. Not to mention the great ideas and info that is being posted by many.

oh, only the small glass type here are plain glod foil, others have sort of dotted gold circle a little lighter thab the other gold. Haven't found a picture on the net, will scan it tomorrow as my mum is sleeping and the scanner is noisy. If I have extra ones, that are hopefully big enough, I could mail them to you. Do europeans here have this foil or not, I'm curious.

This is the link to the German foil supplier. It's the only place I've ever seen it sold online, and it took me months to hunt it down (after harassing the manufacturer in China). They do ship to the US, but the costs are scary expensive.
