Potter Twitter RoundUp: We are Book 8

Potter Twitter RoundUp: We are Book 8

As you may have noticed, the roundup has had a brief break this past week, as this writer popped across the pond to join fellow MuggleNetters in celebrating the geek-filled Potter fest that is LeakyCon! On the plus side, this now means an extra juicy roundup full of all the tweets and gossip from the most joyful convention around.

The start of LeakyCon was conveniently timed to take place over three of the fandom’s most important dates.

And what better way to celebrate these iconic birthdays with an exclusive event held at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios? As the night sky darkened and the park begun to empty, the lucky fans who secured tickets to the Open at the Close event experienced a truly magical night. 

Of course, stars of the series and other fandom faces were also in attendance.

The following day, LeakyCon’s opening ceremony took place, featuring the weekend’s special guests, including Ellie Darcey-Alden (young Lily Potter) as Hermione! 

And finally, the Con was on! There were signings…

… panels…

… competitions…

… inside jokes…

… and plenty more besides. 

But then the end began to draw near…

The final ball gave the MuggleNet family – the largest IRL gathering yet – one last chance to party!

After all the fun, it was time to leave. But not before Esther Day and a rather large, convention-sized bombshell…

And that’s all for our very long special roundup!

Were you are LeakyCon? Did you have fun? What treats did you discover? Will you be attending GeekyCon next year? Let us know in the comments section below!
