    I know, I'm weird

    Post  Evangelina Cromwell on Thu Jul 28, 2011 3:16 am

    So...I have a slight obsession with cosplaying...and right now, I have a slight obsession with Harry Potter. I was watching my favorite HP film the other day (GoF) and I can honestly say, I'm really upset that they portrayed Beauxbations as an all girl's school (the same thing with Durmstrang as an all boy's school). Now, the reason why I'm upset with how they portrayed Beauxbations (and why I brought up cosplaying) is because I really want to cosplay a Beauxbations male student.

    Now, the main reason I want to cosplay this is because everyone cosplays as a Hogwarts student, or even make the movie-style uniforms for the other two schools at cons and photo shoots, that they forget that the books say that all of the schools were co-ed (there was a Durmstrang girl).

    This is the uniform that someone thought best suited a Beauxbations boy. Do you think that this best portrays a Beauxbation's male student?

    First off, you're not weird. With SDCC just having finished, The Mary Sue had done a few articles on why gender bending cosplay isn't all that unusual.

    Two, we know there was a Beauxbatons boy because the Harry Potter Wiki sez so! In fact, it was this boy who saved Parvati Patil (one of the two very hot Patil Sisters) from the clutches of a very depressed Harry during the Yule Ball and remained very close to her for the rest of that school year. (Oh, and Wiki: she was wearing a saree, not dress robes, to the Ball.)

    As for that outfit: yeah, it looks good to me. If you compare it to what the girls wore, it fits completely.

    And if you really want to know what the boys wore at Beauxbatons, ask the two instructors at the school who graduated from there.

    I'm not a fan of the cape. Just cause they're Beauxbaton guys, shouldn't mean they have to lose their masculinity and dress like the girls. That cape should stay with the ladies--like the dress.

    I'd turn it into a jacket to complete the suit.

    The second one looks good.

    The first one requires Quick Time which is, of course, Satan.

    yeah, the first one was a pic of the Shugo Chara character that wears that uniform.

    I had Shugo Chara once, but a trip to the ER fixed me right up.
