Although it's been more than six years since the last and final Harry Potter film made it's debut in theaters, many of the characters from the beloved fantasy still remain near and dear to the hearts of fans. In an attempt to get into the holiday spirit, we've come up with some easy Hermione Granger Halloween costume ideas that'll help you reinvigorate the magic of the beloved film series without driving yourself completely mad amidst the hustle and bustle of your local costume store.
Potter fans can certainly attest to the notion that the outstanding wizardry and clever, quick-witted personality of Hermione never gets old. Her signature style and commanding persona has managed to leave a lasting impression on viewers since we first became acquainted with the character in J.K. Rowling's inaugural novel, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, and later the film series of the same name.
Throughout the years Hermione has remained a favorite for many. The feeling rings particularly true for those who view the character as one of the greatest feminist heroes of modern times. Within the series, Hermione notably stood strongly as the most intelligent and prominent character amongst her male cohorts at Hogwarts. With her kickass smarts and admirable strength, it's easy to see why so many would flock to recreate her sensible savvy look for Halloween season after season. So if an easy get up is what you're going for this year, these few simple steps will help you get into character faster than Hermione can correct your pronunciation of "wingardium leviosa."
