A tribute to Cedric Diggory.

Today I'm going to be posting a quick makeup and hair thing that is inspired by Hufflepuff. Jo Rowling is the author of the Harry Potter series, and the school Hogwarts has four houses. Hufflepuff is one. :)

From Wikipedia:
"Hufflepuff values hard work, tolerance, loyalty, and fair play. The house mascot is the badger, and canary yellow and midnight black are its colors. The Head of this house is the Herbology teacher Pomona Sprout, and the house ghost is The Fat Friar. According to Rowling, Hufflepuff corresponds roughly to the element of earth. The founder of this house is Helga Hufflepuff."

Cedric Diggory was a perfect example of a genuine Hufflepuff. He was brave, loyal, played by the right rules, and above all, was a cutie. ;)
Er. I just realized the Edward in Twilight is the same person as Cedric in the Harry Potter movies.....but I'm not going to follow that through.

Back to what I was saying...
Black and Canary Yellow are Hufflepuff's colors, and unfortunately, I have no yellow eye-shadow, and literally no yellow clothes. SO. I struggled with this. But, I ended up using this headscarf which happens to wonderfully portray Hufflepuff's colors. It's thrifted. :)

As for my face, I used Burt's Bees lip balm, bronzer from ELF, some mineral blush, a light pink eyeshadow from ELF, Covergirl Lash Blast mascara, black eyeliner, and gold glitter eyeliner Hard Candy (in the spirit of Hufflepuff's colors!)
I'm a major potterhead. (You couldn't tell?? I mean. I've read the series 6 times. Literally.) And, to my great regret, I won't be going to the midnight showing tonight.
Hopefully, I'll be able to go tomorrow night.
So, on that cheery note, I leave you to fathom all your creative ideas!

  1. Just remember twilight fans. Potter had Robert Patterson first. AND HE SMILED.

  3. That's really cute! I'm a new follower and once I saw that this blog was about fashion, I instantly followed! I've become quite obsessed with fashion lately :) I was just wondering whether you (and the other contributors) would recommend thrift shopping. I reallyyyyy need a lot more clothes before high school starts but I can't afford like tons of things from the mall and stuff so should I go to Goodwill and look at some of the stuff there, or is it not worth it?

    Thanks for your help :)

  4. Janet - I would definitely recommend thrifting, although it can be rather hit or miss. You can't go into a thrift store expecting to find exactly what you're imagining in your head. You have to remain open to lots of different styles and ideas coming together. I would also learn to get a good hand at sewing. I personally think thrifting is worth it just because you now have one of a kind clothing. I plan on doing a post on it next time I go. I'll keep you in mind! :)
