The Magical Cosplay of Wizard World Chicago 2019
Last weekend, Wizard World returned to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. MuggleNet was there to chat with Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts fans who came dressed to the nines in all their magical cosplay glory! Check out the photos of some of the great cosplay that Wizard World had to offer.
The members of this family are longtime fans of Harry Potter. Randal said that he’s loved the series for 20 years and doesn’t know why anyone wouldn’t love it too!
This was Elena’s first time at Wizard World, and she had a blast! She said that she wanted to cosplay Nymphadora Tonks as if she were a Gryffindor student instead of a Hufflepuff.
Gina was at Wizard World on Saturday dressed as a Gryffindor student. She described the Harry Potter series as the greatest story ever told. A great choice of words!
We caught Laura as we were exiting the hall and couldn’t help but stop and snap a picture! She says that she has always been obsessed with witches and magic since she was little.
When asked what she loves most about Harry Potter, Bella Sophia was quick to say, “Hermione! “So naturally, she decided to dress as one of Gryffindor’s smartest witches.
The Richardson family was all smiles when this author asked to take a photo of them. They represented three of the Hogwarts Houses well with some seriously creative wands.
Ashley is such a huge fan that she had a Harry Potter-themed wedding! She said one of the things that she loves the most about Harry Potter is the message that love conquers all.
Maritza says that for her, the Harry Potter series truly takes her to a different world. She wasn’t big on books growing up, but after reading the series at age 14, Harry Potter encouraged her to read more.
Guinevere immediately jumped into her character for a photo! She says that she loves the idea that in the world of Harry Potter, witches and wizards are able to go to a place and be around other like-minded people.
Charli upped the ante for her amazing Hogwarts student cosplay with the addition of a Niffler tucked at her side! She is a seasoned cosplayer, and you can view more of her creative costumes on her Facebook page, Amethyst Phoenix Cosplay.
Stephanie and David grew up reading Harry Potter, and their sons Sawyer and Michael enjoy it too! Stephanie cosplayed as Luna with a Ravenclaw robe and Spectrespecs, and Sawyer and Michael were spot-on as Dobby. David said that another favorite character of theirs is Professor McGonagall.
Every year, fans amaze with new and impressive spins on cosplay favorites, and this year was no exception. We thoroughly enjoyed chatting with everyone, hearing their stories, and getting to know the reasons behind their love of Harry Potter.
