Again really nice stuff being posted. Thanks to everyone sharing! I think the quality of this thread is getting better every time.
congrats for that thumbsup:thumbsup its looks great i like the Snowflakes boxJust finished my Nose Biting Teacups box and Glacial Snowflakes. I completed the teacup box with help from the Half Blood Prince DVD and the Glacial Snowflake cover I got from the late great and very talented Kevin Bulmer.
I'm pretty sure its just a digital composite, alot of the old industrial cities in the UK look like that, the area I live in was built for shipbuilders for the Titanic and the streets look almost exactly like that, in fact we have an old 'dirty' stream near us and a few old abandoned chimney stacks too, very common style of terrace housing. Also there is this video: Harry potter half blood prince behind the magic - YouTube from 26.06 - 26.12 .This is a really long shot, but I like drawing floor plans and I'm sketching one out of Spinner's End (from both the books and the films). I've always been fascinated by it, and I'm having a dickens of a time finding out where they filmed it. I know the inside was built sets, of course, but I'm speaking more of this shot: Spinner's End
I know a good lot of those houses have been added/repeated digitally, but I was wondering if anyone has had better luck finding the filming location than I, or knows of a spot that would match.
I'm not sure why I like floor plans and researching old houses this much, but...everyone has a quirk.
that's really cool, do you knoew that "The Tale of the Three Brothers" was inspired by Geoffrey Chaucer's "The Pardoner's Tale" from The Canterbury Tales? J.K. Rowling stated this in an interview once! maybe minalima looked at the canterbury tales book for inspiration when made the prop...nice work
I got this book from oxfam a while ago and thought that it was like a muggle version of tales of beedle the bard. It's the Canterbury tales and was published for children during the second world war.
ps thanks again elliot
The film wizardry book has four proclamations, and the pubication info page looks like a proclamation also, I scanned these and got numbers 1,2,3,6,8,9,0 from there, plus I'm using them as a base for my proclamations. I'mm been trying to create the other numbers, and have a decent looking 5 so far, plus a BLURRY 4 and 7 from photos of the proclamations.@decat,.thanks decat for the rune, ecl would love that i think ,i have no font for the re number's
