Warner Bros. Studio Tour Announces Behind the Seams Experience!

Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter has announced a new experience that will allow guests to discover the magic of costume design!

Opening on May 26, the Behind the Seams experience will show visitors firsthand what it takes to create the magical costumes of the wizarding world. Presented in a “workshop environment,” the experience promises to reveal the secrets of costume design, as well as display costumes that have never before been seen at the Studio Tour:

The Making of Harry Potter – Behind the Seams experience will allow you to discover firsthand the spellbinding secrets of the [c]ostume [d]epartment that created over 25,000 unique items of clothing for the Wizarding World. From initial sketches to the finished costume seen on screen, our Tour experts will reveal the behind-the-scenes journey that brought your favourite characters to life. Discover how new clothes were made to look centuries old or battle-torn with the help of paint, mud and wire brushes, how magical snail trails were created on your favourite Herbology [p]rofessor’s robes and why Aunt Marge needed 38 costumes for just one scene.

An optional extra to the Studio Tour, the Behind the Seams experience takes visitors on an hour-long guided session, before returning to the main tour. In addition, the experience also includes the chance to wear a Hogwarts robe, in the House color of your choice, that appeared on-screen in one of the Harry Potter films!

The Behind the Seams experience opens on May 26, and tours will be available daily until June 3 and every weekend thereafter until July 22. Tickets to the experience include entrance to the Studio Tour and can be purchased on the Warner Bros. Studio Tour website.

I was given a copy of Philosopher's Stone in 2001, and instantly, I was hooked. Since then, my passion for Potter has been equaled only by my passion for fair access to education (and watching motorsport). A spell I wish could exist in the Muggle world is the summoning charm because this Hufflepuff is not a "particularly good finder"!
