Harry Potter

Slytherin Workout Cosplay

"...in Slytherin you'll make your real friends, those cunning folk use any means to achieve their ends."

As you likely guessed by now, this last November Workout Cosplay is for my Hogwarts house: Slytherin! Here's a cunning little number in silver, green, and black!

And a playlist for us Snakes!

While my house gets a bad-rep thanks to "legacy folks" (born Slytherins like Malfoy, Parkinson, Goyle, Crabbe...you know, the more jerky students) there's the other half that I like to the see as the cunning rebels who are pulling more pranks on the legacy brats than Fred & George ever did. And we know that's a LOT!

More importantly MERLIN was in Slytherin! And that pretty much trumps everything, cause Merlin was the greatest mother flipping wizard to ever exist. **drops mic**

But really I love my house. I love Hogwarts! I love the Harry Potter series! There, I said it (but we all knew eh? LOL

Gryffindor Workout Cosplay

"You might belong in Gryffindor, Where dwell the brave of heart, Their daring, nerve and chivalry, Set Gryffindors apart."

I will always have a lot of respect for Gryffindor. I mean, it not only was Hermione and Ginny there, but  Neville Longbottom was a part of this house! Those three are the epitome of Gryffindor. And add to the fact that Albus Dumbledore was there?! Well in one enthusiastic word: yay! They were brave, did what was right, and didn't care about popularity. They cared about people over glory. I like that, and that is what I like that about this house. They are very unit-oriented...mostly.

For Gryffindor, I chose to go with Ox-blood instead of straight up red because a). the "Official" memorabilia has more of that ox-blood/burgandy color to it (not the headband) with gold; b). it looks slick as heck; and, c). "OMG you guys! They have ladies items in burgundy and ox blood! Woot!" (*calms down*). Any who, workout cosplay!!!

And here is a ferocious playlist to workout to:

One more Hogwarts House to go! Save the best for last, they say ;P

Ravenclaw Workout Cosplay

"Wit beyond measure, is man's greatest treasure"

Ravenclaw is one of two sister houses to my Hogwarts house. 

It also houses my second favorite ghost The Grey Lady, and my favorite character: Luna Lovegood!

I also love Ravenclaw's house colors of Blue and bronze (or--more specifically--a bronze colored pewter), as I think bronze is such an under used color, but, when pulled off well looks insanely wonderful! That being said it was near impossible to find anything bronze:'(! BUT I did find some bronze colored shoes (I make no apologies for loving bold shoes).

And a Ravenclaw Workout mix:

On an interesting note, my husband is a Ravenclaw, and consistently insists I quit to join (not going to happen hahahah)!

Who on earth could be next?

Hufflepuff Workout Cosplay

"Where they are just and loyal, those patient Hufflepuffs are true, and unafraid of toil."

Hufflepuff may be a house that folks love to polk fun at (including other Hufflepuffs) but truly, I think they are the noblest house.

I mean, everything in their house motto is what you want in a friend. That's not to say other House's don't have these qualities, more, Hufflepuff's values are are these things first versus say bravery, wit, or cunning (all of which a Hufflepuff may also be, only, secondary).

And with that a Hufflepuff Workout Cosplay:
Of course, that means we need some workout music:

I will always see Hufflepuff not only as the most chill of the Hogwarts Houses, but, I believe (at the risk of being crude) that Hufflepuff also has the most "action" ;) Also, I like to think the "Badger" mascot is more of a "Honey Badger" so don't be crossing those Hufflepuffs!

What's your favorite part of Hufflepuff House?
Bet you can't guess who's next? ;)
