Wizard School Student Robe

The style shown here is the wizard school student robe like those in the more recent movies.  We have also created unlined wizard student robes similar to the first two movies.

Made from durable black 100% cotton twill to your measurement specifications, the interior is 100% cotton broadcloth in your choice of color for the hood, facings and sleeve lining, and black satin through the robe body.  The robe features a two button and loop front closure and a pointed hood.  Wand pockets available upon request.

These robes cost $225 + shipping without a house patch. 

As there are many patch styles to choose from, we ask you to purchase your favorite style/size of patch and have the patch sent directly to us while we are constructing your robe.

Please see our custom orders page for details of the process.

Formal Dress Robe
This 'dress robe' is modeled after the one Harry wore at the Yule Ball.  Made from 100% wool flannel fully lined with heavy matte black satin with a wand pocket and inner breast pocket, this fancy dress robe also featured a shoulder cape, fold down collar and sleeve detail from the same matte black satin.
Elvis DumbledoreElvis Dumbledore
The original, the one and only... Elvis Dumbledore! Designed and created by Andrea Wakely with the assistance of Camille Gray, featuring the talent and wizardry of Eric Scull as the King himself.  

These costume pieces were inspired by several of Elvis' spangled and highly embellished suits, but with nods to the wizard world and the costumes from the first two HP films since this is a younger (much younger) version of Dumbledore.  The 70's fashion points merged with medieval elements -instead of a spray-on spangled jumpsuit, there is  a short tunic with smaller versions of the bell sleeves that Dumbledore favors later on in life paired with bell bottoms.  The burgundy/gold and fiery colors are reminiscent of the older Dumbledore's film robes and Fawkes the phoenix, and Godric's sword motif is hidden in the monograms.  Constellations meaningful to our wizard friend were hand stitched to the cape and several thousand acryllic rhinestones were hand glued in place to create the phoenix motifs on the tunic and cape.  

The fun didn't stop after our photo shoot with the amazing Nina Rizzo - check out the YouTube video here.  Studio photography (c) Nina Rizzo 2013, Bristol, VA and used here with permission.

Head Wizard Outfit with velvet surcoat.  
This custom created ensemble features a velvet surcoat with hand dyed fringe, silver custom embroidered motifs with silver stud accents and a hidden wand pocket. The hand dyed amethyst over robe has hand dyed trim and fringe and an embroidered motif along the edges of the lapels and collar. The silver grey under robe features hand dyed silk, custom digitized and embroidered motifs, couched cord and trims.   The matching hat has a custom embroidered motif, along with a custom dyed button, and custom color stripped tassel.  The trim on the hat matches the trim on the amethyst over-robe.

Due to the labor intensive methods used, and the unique nature of many of these trims and materials, this outfit cannot be exactly replicated.  An ensemble of similar complexity would cost $1500 and up.

Custom Ordered Potion Master Outfit

Thank you Ryan for the great photos!
After a few years' worth of research and experience and a lucky find with a Victorian era historic pattern to modify for the robe, we had the opportunity to create a Potions Master's outfit from (nearly) the skin out.

The white cotton shirt was made in a Victorian style with bib front, vintage mother of pearl buttons, tall collar and long cuffs.  The medium weight black silk crepe cravat was created from the same fabric as the robe.  The black wool flannel frock coat and matching trousers were lined with sturdy cotton and featured many, many fully functional buttons covered with the same wool flannel.  The coat buttoned from the elbow to cuffs and from chin to waistline.  The fitted trousers buttoned at the outside ankle and have a small slit at the inner ankle.  Though these pictures do not show them, there are two functional pockets with flaps on the frock coat as well.  The billowing and dramatic black silk crepe robe features tiny pleats gathering the back and sleeves into the shoulder yoke, a short train and center back vent.

This costume is not currently available as a custom order.

Rita Skeeter Inspired Green Satin Outfit Rita Skeeter Inspired Green Satin Jacket and Skirt
This Skeeter style suit was made from chartreuse satin and embellished with burgundy and black feather trim.  The buttons were hand painted to look like the originals, including the single button that has one stripe instead of two.

Professor Lupin Inspired Wool Wizard School Professor Robe

Lupin inspired robe made from suit weight wool in brown, tan and navy blue tweed.  This robe was lined with brown cotton twill in the hood and shot copper satin inside the robe body and sleeves.  There was a wand pocket, side seam pockets, and a secure inside pocket held with a velvet ribbon and dragon button.  The sleeves are straight cut and do NOT have cuffs.  This exact fabric is no longer manufactured or available for use as a custom order.  A similar robe made from your choice of currently available wool flannels as shown on our Custom Orders page, lined in satin, with no distressing would cost $405 + shipping - we will need to verify current fabric costs at the time of order placement.

After these pictures were taken, the robe was distressed to 'age' it with sandpaper, the hemline was painted with charcoal and brown paint to mimic old dirt stains and splatters from travelling.  Scuffed leather patches were added to the elbows, and a darned area and different colored wool patch were added at the front.  The last button down at the front was a worn leather button as who knows when the 'original' may have been lost in the good professor's travels?
