LONDON, May 18 — Aside from, perhaps, an invisibility cloak, visitors to “The Making of Harry Potter” at the Warner Bros Studio Tour in London will be able to behold some of the original costumes worn in the Harry Potter movies, and even don an original Hogwarts robe from the film franchise.
For a limited time, “Behind the Seams” will pull back the curtain of the costume department that created more than 25,000 pieces for the Wizarding World.
Ticket holders will learn how new clothes were deliberately soiled, torn and muddied to look centuries old or battle-torn (paint, mud and wire brushes were involved), and why Aunt Marge needed 38 costumes for just one scene.
The workshop will showcase initial sketches through to the finished costumes, including those worn by Herbology Professor Sprout, Triwizard champion Cedric Diggory and He-Who-Must-Not-be-Named (Lord Voldemort).
Visitors will also get the chance to slip into an original Hogwarts robe, worn in the Harry Potter films.
The one-hour experience will run daily beginning May 26 to June 3, and every weekend until July 22.
Tickets are priced at £65 (RM350) for adults, £55 for children. Prices include entrance to the Studio Tour. — AFP-Relaxnews
