How To Create Your Own Ginny Weasley Costume

Ginny Weasley isn't just the girl with the fan crush on Harry Potter from the Sorcerer's Stone. She isn't only that character who brought Tom Riddle back into the picture in the Chamber of Secrets. Ginny isn't simply the youngest, red-headed Weasley sibling, or Harry Potter's girlfriend and eventual wife. Ginny Weasley is described by J.K. Rowling as an exceptional witch and isn't one you should forget when choosing your Harry Potter group costumes for an upcoming movie marathon or Halloween party. Here's how you can make your own Ginny Weasley costume!

From an annoying little sister to the quidditch queen and a warrior witch, Ginny Weasley grew up a lot during the Harry Potter series. She was a timid little thing at first with a crush on Harry, but after the incident with Tom Riddle's diary, she turned her life around and grew into a self-confident young lady! Later on, she even took on some death eaters, and she survived the Battle of Hogwarts—not too shabby! We'll show you everything you need to transform into this iconic Gryffindor student.

The perfect kid's Ginny Weasley costume isn't complete without the Hogwarts essentials: a Gryffindor school robe, Ginny's signature red hair, and a house emblem tie. Other essentials to creating your costume could include an old blank book to serve as Tom Riddle's diary, a wand, a horse Patronus charm spell, mastering the disarming and redactor curse, and of course, Harry Potter on your arm!

Don't forget that Ginny joined the Gryffindor Quidditch team in her fifth year at Hogwarts as a Chaser and then as Seeker. Her movie quidditch uniform is a little different than the one that Harry Potter sports earlier in the movie series, but in a pinch, this ready-made quidditch uniform might still work. If you're going the more DIY route for Ginny's quidditch uniform and you merely need the accessories, you'll need all the Quidditch basics such as goggles, a helmet, and safety accessories. Don't forget a broom!
