So a while ago I shared my papier-mâché Queequeg helmet and people were really nice about it so I thought I'd share something I made in a similar vein a few days ago.
I'm going down to the London premiere of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald next Tuesday. I don't have tickets for it -- I'll just be one of the people getting very excited because J.K. Rowling will be there (!!!!) and generally going through a right of passage because despite loving Harry Potter since before I can remember, I've never yet been able to go to on of the premieres. So, as it's such a big thing for me, I thought I ought to really make an effort to create something special.
SO, I decided I'd create a papier-mâché book-box. I've made one of these before, years ago (a copy of Hogwarts: A History), which I've used for years whenever I dress up for HP. I always dress up as Hermione because she's my favourite, so it follows that I should have a book as part of my costume. Anyway, as I say, I've been carrying my Hogwarts: A History around for years and I felt it was time for a new creation. And as this is for Fantastic Beasts, I decided to make a special copy of FBAWTFT. It took several days of work, and I'm really happy with the result!
I love those colorful circles you put all over the cover. What nice touches! What are they? The entire thing is lovely!
Faith is being sure about what we hope for, being convinced about things we do not see. Hebrews 11:1 For God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16
Germes: I think inviting new people to join us is a good idea.

Germes: I think Bee did something similar at some point in the past.

Germes: And even earlier, there was a plan to stick 667 flyers in copies of ASOUE in bookshops. At least one person did join us because of that.

Sherry Ann: Didn't someone get kicked out of / asked to leave a bookstore for putting 667 bookmarks in ASOUE books?

Jean Lúcio: If there was a flow capacitor, I would sign up here long before ... That must have been incredible.

Stay-at-homet: Just updated my profile to express my hopes that everyone stays home and safe. I tried to give my avatar a mask, but it ended up looking more like Patrick from Spongebob in overalls.

Jean Lúcio: It was great for me. I also put a mask on my Avatar.
