Costume College - What I Wore Friday daytime: Rita Skeeter

When I heard Jen Thompson was wearing her Harry Potter Grey Lady gown on Friday I thought I'd reprise my old Rita Skeeter costume.  I didn't want to do the same green suit everyone has done, so I tried to repro her outfit from the Goblet of Fire.  The skirt is just a leather skirt from by closet, as are the boots.  The jacket is a thrifted suede jacket I dyed, altered and added the snakeskin details too.   And the wig is just a basic long curly wig with the curls pinned up.  It was really easy and cheap to put together as a result, but I really like this costume.  Rita is fun to cosplay, it's comfy and I can wear my glasses!!  




You don't see it in these pics but the best part of this costume is the accessory my husband made for me- a moving quick quotes quill!  Here's a little video I made of it in action.
