This secret costume was a last-minute idea I had to really try and take advantage of my naturally long and bushy brown hair... before I shaved my head for charity. :)
I had been told many times that I looked like what people imagined when they read about Hermione. So this version of her isn't referenced from any uniform in the movies. I wanted to keep it cheap too, so I chose stuff that I thought would look good together, and much like a simple school uniform. That's all there is to it! I also had a little help from my friends:
The tie is from http://cospix.net/salvi
The cloak and wand are from my friend Marie-Hélène. Thanks!
