Magic wands are an essential piece of every witch and wizard’s standard gear. At the Wand Shoppe, we offer handcrafted solid wood wands to suit your inner wizard or your favorite Harry Potter character costume. This month, grab your magic wand and channel your inner Harry, Hermione, or Dumbledore. Check out a few of our wand and character matchups as you prepare your own costume this Halloween.
The Passionate - Fred or George Weasley
The owner of this intricately carved, dark brown wand enjoys being out among friends, often finding humor in situations. As the owners of Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, Fred and George thrive on humor, pranks, and fun. They strive to make others laugh and to diffuse tension. Yet, they are loyal, brave, and passionate about things that are important to them. They are true Gryffindors at heart.
The Vine - Hermione
Before placing her in Gryffindor, the Sorting Hat tried to sort Hermione into Ravenclaw for her wisdom and intelligence. She is a good match for The Vine magic wand. This beautifully crafted light brown wand has a winding leafy fine along the handle. The vine symbolizes passionate emotions, both happiness and wrath. Hermione’s heart is full of emotion, compassion, courage, and knowledge.
The Mystic Dragon - Charlie Weasley or Hagrid
With a love of dragons and adventure and a healthy dose of confidence, Charlie Weasley would be a great match for the Mystic Dragon. The owner of this light brown, carved dragon wand is a strong, confident, adventurous animal lover. The Mystic Dragon is also a perfect match for Hagrid, our favorite Care of Magical Creatures teacher. However, for a Hagrid costume, you may want to hide your wand in an umbrella so the Ministry of Magic remains unaware of your wand possession.
The Serpent - Lord Voldemort
With a name like The Serpent, this magic wand is a great fit for a dark lord who can speak Parseltongue. Shaped like a snake, the Serpent is a handcrafted light brown wand. An owner of this wand values standing out from the crowd and being different. Who better to be the master of a serpent than one of the most powerful dark wizards of all time?
The Faithful - Bellatrix Lestrange
As Voldemort’s most faithful servant, Bellatrix is well-suited for a wand of the same name. Dark in nature, in character, and in her attire, The Faithful will fit nicely in Bellatrix’s hand. This finely crafted magic wand is made of dark wood and has a handle with intricate scrolling details.
The Raven - Professor Trelawney
Often a bad omen or sign of darkness, ravens have philosophical and spiritual references. Although she was known for spouting visions of “the grim”, Professor Trelawney famously divined the prophecy for Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort. She also foretold of Peter Pettigrew and his return to the Dark Lord. Who better to hold such a prophetic, light brown intricate magic wand?
The Ancient - Albus Dumbledore
An owner of The Ancient wand values living a simple life but still has a love of other cultures and new ideas. Dumbledore is an experienced traveler, member of the Order of the Phoenix and Headmaster of Hogwarts. However, with his own past with his family and his friendship with Gellert Grindelwald, Dumbledore knows his own limits and prefers to live simply rather than lavishly. The Ancient is a notched dark brown wand that suits Dumbledore well.
The Morning Star - Luna Lovegood
The epitome of the word unique, Luna Lovegood would be a great match for The Morning Star wand. This beautifully carved light brown wand has a spiral handle with a star. It has charm and character as does our favorite reader of The Quibbler.
The Erratic - Draco Malfoy
Erratic or unpredictable seems to describe Draco’s actions by the last two books in the series. He wobbles between good and evil as he tries to figure out where he stands. The Erratic wand is expertly crafted from dark wood using classic lines and intricate details. Draco himself is often dressed in classic looks, but he always exudes a sense of wealth and confidence as is the Malfoy way.
The Devout Heart - Harry Potter
Devoted, true, faithful, and caring, Harry Potter is a great match for The Devout Heart. This wand is dark brown and shaped like a sword. Harry is a Gryffindor through and through, brave and loyal. He is adventurous and is not one to back down from a challenge, especially if it is the right thing to do. His heart is pure and true. This dark wood wand is a great fit for a Harry Potter costume.
