I have decided that I love midnight showings. The atmosphere is epic. So epic. Cheering, clapping, booing, laughing when something is meant to be serious but is completely hilarious... WIN.
So, there were a few of us who decided to go, and (most of us) went all out with the costumes. I'll have to do a picture post later when I can get the photos myself, but for now have a rundown of characters.
I went as Bellatrix, as I have said, and apparently succeeded in looking fantastically evil and creepy.
harpisan went as Molly Weasley, and we were pretty happy with our selections considering the battle scene ;)
thalia03 was a Hufflepuff student/mascot complete with awesome yellow cape
Ame was Professor Trelawney
S was Hogwarts student no. 43434324
M was Tonks
I think snuggle_monster won though. She went as Hedwig.
A few of us got asked for a photo by this random girl, and snuggle_face had someone come up and ask for one, and then got really excited, pointed to her head and said, I quote, 'oh my god I was so sad when you died, can I take a photo with you?'
I think her selfconsciousness about her costume choice vanished about then.
The best costume I saw though would HAVE to be the big guy dressed pretty convincingly as Hagrid, but the best bit was that the person with him was in a dog costume. Yep. People came as Hagrid and Fang. =D
Now, for the actual movie itself...
( SPOILER ALERT )
On the way there we listened to wizard rock, because we could, and on the way home our discussions got... interesting. I am blocking most of it from my memory, but let me jsut say - it revolved around fanfic pairings. pebblegosling you would be proud...
And now I'm off, because I need a shower and feel totally gross. My hair is like straw because of all the hairspray that is in it - it did look freaking awesome I must say.
