Albus and Scorpius Replica Wands Now Available from “Cursed Child” Shop!
Been missing Hogwarts ever since you saw the curtain fall at Harry Potter and the Cursed Child? Now you can bring a little West End magic back home with newly available replica wands from the Cursed Child online shop!
The wands used in the production are just as beautifully crafted as those we’ve seen in the Harry Potter films, so it makes sense that – just as with our favorite film characters’ wands – replicas are now available for sale. For now, only replicas of Albus’s and Scorpius’s are available, each retailing for £32.
When designing the wands, I read as much as I could about wandlore from Pottermore and was inspired by all the kinds of wood. I looked at pictures of trees and branches, in section and in close up, and mostly tried to channel the spirits of the actors and let those move my pencil.[For Albus’s wand] I looked at cherry blossom buds you see on cherry tree branches and incorporated the feeling of them into the texture. I imagined that Albus would be able to find comfort in running his fingers across them the way you might rub a worry stone. He has a lot to sort out, and I imagined his wand as a comfort as well as a magical force.
Scorpius’s wand is more rough-hewn. There are dark patches and light patches, and in my mind the markings are the markings of time. I imagine he might have carved them himself as a way of forming his identity by marking time and his presence in the carvings.
