How to Dress Like Your Favorite Harry Potter Characters

How many of us grew up both reading and watching Harry Potter? I know we are still bitter that our Hogwarts acceptance letter never arrived…

Set in a magical world where anything is possible, populated by colorful and nuanced characters, and weird and wonderful mythical creatures, it’s no wonder that J.K. Rowling developed such a dedicated following.

Now it’s time to make those childhood fantasies a reality. Grab your wand and your familiar because we are off to Hogwarts! Our Harry Potter costume ideas are designed for women with more than a touch of magic in them.

Dress up like Bellatrix Lestrange, Hermione Granger, Hedwig, and more with our step-by-step cosplay guides.

Luna Lovegood costume



We kick off our Harry Potter costume collection for women with one of the most popular side characters of the whole franchise: Luna Lovegood.

Luna is so beloved because of her ability to love anyone and everything unconditionally. Even those people and mythical beings that are often overlooked by the rest of the wizarding world.

This costume is full of vibrancy and joy. This is for those Harry Potter fans who see the good in people, no matter how deep it might be buried.

Bellatrix Lestrange costume



On the other side of the coin from Luna Lovegood, we have Bellatrix Letrange. One of Lord Voldermort’s most fanatical and loyal followers, Bellatrix is a ferocious fighter who is – rightly so – feared by the rest of the wizarding community almost as much as the Dark Lord himself.

Bellatrix’s costume is befitting of a true Death Eater. Dressed all in black, with heavy gothic influences, this is for those who want to strike terror into their adversaries.

Despite looking intimidating, this is actually quite an easy Harry Potter costume to make at home with a few well-selected accessories. Find out more with our step-by-step guide.

Nymphadora Tonks costume



As a member of the infamous wizarding Black family, counting Bellatrix Lestrange and Narcissa Malfoy as her aunts, Nymphadora Tonks could be forgiven for falling to the dark side.

Instead, she joined the Order of the Phoenix and gave her life at the Battle of Hogwarts to vanquish Lord Voldermort for good.

This is another great female Harry Potter costume idea for any low-key punks among us. Full of rebellious attitude with her purple hair and striking full-length coat, this is one Metamophmagus you don’t want to trifle with.

Female Nagini costume



Although once a beautiful and mysterious woman with the ability to transform between snake and human form at will, Nagini was cursed with a rare blood disease that eventually resulted in her being trapped in her snake body forever.

As one of Voldermort’s seven Horcruxes and the last one to be destroyed by Harry Potter and his allies, Nagini plays a critical role in the downfall of the Dark Lord.

Sure, we could have based our costume guide on the woman form of Nagini (featured in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) but where’s the fun in that? If you’ve ever dreamed of dressing up like a snake, boy is this the outfit for you!

Moaning Myrtle costume



Moaning Myrtle was the first victim of Tom Riddle who tragically met her fate at the hands of the Basilisk after Tom unleashed it from the Chamber of Secrets.

A tragic character, Myrtle Warren struggled to fit in at Hogwarts. With few friends and even some nasty bullies, Myrtle’s life was short and full of difficulties. Nevertheless, she proved that she had a good heart when she helped Harry, Hermione, and Ron enter the Chamber of Secrets.

This is a particularly funny female Harry Potter costume idea, particularly if you’re feeling brave enough to incorporate a toilet seat into your cosplay…

Narcissa Malfoy costume



Narcissa Malfoy might have been a Death Eater and follower of Lord Voldermort but nothing mattered to her more than the well-being of her family.

Her fierce maternal instincts make her more of a complex character than many others. Did she really do everything for her son, Draco, or was that little more than a lie she convinced herself?

Either way, this is one of our most impressive Harry Potter costume ideas for women. Just look at that cloak and cocktail dress combo! Need we say more?

Female Hedwig costume



We can just about forgive Hedwig for losing our Hogwarts acceptance letter in the mail because of how darn cute he is!

Hedwig was Harry Potter’s faithful companion until her tragic death while attempting to save Harry Potter form pursuing Death Eaters.

This is a funny and unique outfit idea that is suitable for adults and children. That makes Hedwig perfect for larger Harry Potter cosplay groups, whether that be you and friends or family! Otherwise, could we interest anyone in an adorable Harry and Hedwig couple’s costume?

Delphini costume



In an alternate timeline, Delphini Diggory (Riddle-Black) is the daughter of Bellatrix Lestrange and Tom Riddle. The result of Bellatrix using a Time-Turner to alter the future, Delphini is another way that Voldermort looked to achieve immortality besides the Horcruxes. Is there any other reason to have children?

The primary antagonist of the stage adaptation, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Delphini is a relative newcomer to the beloved ensemble of characters but we think she fits right in.

This is a particularly unique costume idea for those women who really want to flex their knowledge of Harry Potter lore. It also just so happens to be a super fun and easy outfit to make too.

Hermione costume



Born to muggle parents, Hermione Granger is one of the most naturally gifted sorcerers to ever live. She complements her talents with a steadfast love of education and studying, which in turn is helped by the sneaky use of a Time-Turner device.

This is Hermione like you’ve never seen her before. It’s not like we needed a love potion in the first place to fall in love with Emily Watson, but this sexy Hermione costume is really just the cherry on time for any real Harry Potter fan.

After all, where’s the fun in entering the muggle world if you can’t be a little naughty?
