Awesome project! I'm working on something like this, a less complicated version maybe. My idea is to fill a trunk as if I studied at Hogwarts. So no Harry's trunk, but a personalized trunk.
I still need lots of books and other props. Also the hogwarts logo on the trunk needs to be done, still thinking about what would be the best way to do that.
As you can see I also have the acceptance letter (personalized) and a diploma.
Good luck with this huge project! I already love it!
I reckon it depends on whenyou want it based... like, after sixth year, or maybeduring sixth year would work, as he has everything from all the books pretty much, but in the beginning of the seventh one he ditches most of his stuff... that way you have everything from past books Just my thoughts, sorry if none of that made sense
Practice your sculpting, for sure. Get some polymer clay(Fimo, Sculpey, etc), and you will be able to make the little things. Those are what really make the outfits! For books, look up what has been done on Instructables.com, and for the Quiddich outfits and dress robes, you will need some sewing skills. there are a fair amount of patterns out there that can be changed around to get what you need. I took a Sherlock Holmes pattern, and have used it as the basis for both V and Snape!
I think most of the small items are already for sale, and my sculpting is atrocious. I've also been searching around some book threads and I'm currently considering geting a Chudley cannons book, the rest I think I'll just use free paper props, that'll cover the stuff that harry's owned. Now I reckon I could pull off a half-decent Quidditch outfit and maybe even a set of dress robes but I'd much rather have some else do them, they'd do a better job!
Oh, Littuus. I wish she still made stuff. She varies on how accurate she is (a lot of her stuff was made before all the Blu-ray grabs and prop exhibits). But, everything she makes is high-quality. I still have her chocolate frog box, it's great.
Hmm, that could be hard... if you found a good fabric you could make one, which might be better because I know that the ones on WB shop can be reaaaally expensive, just have a look and make sure I'm thinking of the right thing. I'm pretty sure it's at least a hundred dollars, if not two. If it's not on WB shop, check noblecollection.com... I think that the website
Right, sorry, just realised you already mentioned the one on WB shop... I think you would have to look at some reviews to figure out how accurate it is, I personally don't have one, unfortunately *sigh*... but yeah, the fabric thing is all I can come up with
