So, yeah, I spent this weekend being a wizard and it was epic win. I’ve been looking forward to this for so long, I thought there was no way it could live up to my expectations but it did XD
The crafts were awesome. I wasn’t expecting as much good stuff as they had but the wands were cool, there were lots of little Harry Potter related things like golden snitch headbands, owl post key chains, that kind of thing. A good variety and lots of Potter related stuff which was awesome.
The food, I’m still a bit confused as to why my butterbeer had cream on the top (to make it look like froth, maybe? I dunno) but it was delicious and there were house cakes which made me geekily happy.
And, the most important things…
The music was brilliant. Everyone who got up to perform really gave it their all and I enjoyed every set. The people performing were -
Siriusly Hazza P
Romilda Vane and the Chocolate Cauldrons
The Pumpkin Pasties
The Lost Diadems
And, yeah, I can’t even pick out some as best becasue they were all epic. I wish I could have bought all their CD’s but I got distracted and forgot about most of them so I only got Riddle TM’s stuff, but I’ll look the others up later.
And, last, the atmosphere was awesome. It was REALLY friendly, everyone was chatting to everyone, there was a lot of meeting new people and everyone was really nice, there were events going on all the time and, in general, it was just pretty epic.
Doesn’t hurt that I won two prizes in the raffle too XD Cedric’s wand is mine, and for anyone who knows how much I covet the wands they’ll know how happy that made me.
Really looking forward to alohamora 2013 now!
