Quidditch Harry Potter Deluxe Costume
Alright, one Keeper, two Beaters, three Chasers and... wait, where'd our Seeker go?
You've got to be kidding! Five minutes before the match and Potter isn't here yet?! How are we supposed to take on Slytherin house without a Seeker? We'll have to forfeit! We know, we know, last match of the season, we couldn't possibly forfeit. Those Slytherins will be intolerable for the rest of the year if we do.
Hey! You! Yes, you! You any good at Seeking? Or do you know someone who is? Yes? Excellent, we might be in luck team! Ok, so you know how it goes right? You can use this broom. We fly out there. We'll take care of the hoops and nonsense and you head for the snitch. You know, the fast little gold thing with wings. Yes, that's your job. Oh, and don't get hit. Their Beaters, they've got a mean streak. Got it?
Well since you're filling in for him, here. We'll just put you in the Quidditch Harry Potter Deluxe Costume. Yeah, it's got Potter's name and number on the back, but you don't mind, do you? Didn't think so. Classic Gryffindor colors and patch... wait, you are a Gryffindor, aren't you? That's what I thought. Must just be new. No worries mates! Here we go!

Costume Sizing Tips
“Those cunning folk use any means to achieve their ends.” And so we did. We made a damn near close to film version of Slytherin quidditch robes from Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince using screenshots, pitcures from studio tours, and striped sheets from Amazon. I am smugly proud of these uniforms, and I’m pleased to finally share them on the blog.

I’ve never been a fan of any sports, but when my bro/fellow costume maker Aimee asked for quidditch robes, I said “screw it, let’s do it!” The making of the robes were fairly easy. I found a blog post from Kaisadani and modified her training robes dimensions and angles, as her measurements were very close to my own. After pattern changes were made, I digitized everything and published them at the bottom of this post. The digitized pattern is roughly fit to my size (medium: 36-30-40) and would comfortably fit a size small person as well, but large and above would need scaling for sure. I had to add diamond shaped gussets at the armpits to my husband’s robes, as well as adding 2 inches to back and front seams (his chest size is 42″).
These robes are only shown briefly during one quick quidditch scene in Half Blood Prince, so we had very little reference. When researching this project, my “holy shit!” moment was realizing that I have this exact striped pattern on my guest bed, but in ivory. Y’all…sheets!! So I hunted down emerald/hunter green sheets on Amazon in a high thread count. We were ecstatic when they came in the mail exactly the color, sheen, and stripe sizing that we were looking for: Superior 300 Thread Count 100% Premium Combed Cotton, 4-Piece Bed Sheet Set, Deep Pocket, Single Ply, Sateen Stripe, Full – Hunter Green
Piecing the robes together was fairly easy, with an exception of the grey stripe between back and tail pieces, and meticulously lining up the emerald stripes in the exact directions as the reference images. I stitched each back piece to tail pieces separately, with grey bias tape between back and tail pieces (above), stitched the two back pieces together at center back from neck to hem, stitched front to back pieces at shoulders, and stitched side fronts to side backs. The hood center seam needed stitching as well, and slight pleating at the center back to stitch to the neck opening (and I repeated all steps with liner). I prefer to construct sleeve pieces separately and attach them last, so with right sides together, I stitched the outside to the liner, leaving the arm holes open (I turned right side out, pressed, and top stitched). You could also attach sleeves before attaching liner and turn in sleeve hems last.
Grey bias tape (we bought 3 different greys but liked medium grey best): Wrights Double Fold Bias Tape 1/2 inch 3 Yards Dark Grey 117-206-047 (3-Pack)
Black sheets as liner: SONORO KATE Bed Sheet Set Super Soft Microfiber 1800 Thread Count Luxury Egyptian Sheets 16-Inch Deep Pocket Wrinkle and Hypoallergenic-4 Piece
For topstitching, I used Gutermann sew-all thread in Spectre Green (794), and stitched 1/4″ from all edges. The sleeves have an additional line of stitching 3″ from the edge as well.
Thread: Gutermann 100P-794 Sew-All Thread 110 Yards-Spectre Green
Before ironing on the rest of the details, I prepped the hood and side stripes with more grey bias tape sliced down the middle, and a single stripe of green sewn between the sliced bias tape pieces. For each of the three robes that I made, I used almost 4 yards of the three-stripe bias tape (so 2 packages per person).
Stripes were ironed on the side seam from the single stripe to hem on both sides, on the center hood seam from opening to neck, from neck to 3″ from sleeve hem on right sleeve, and from neck to 10″ from sleeve hem on left sleeve (ending in a triangle also made with bias tape) using super weight Heat-n-Bond: HeatnBond Hem Iron-On Adhesive, Super Weight, 3/4 Inch x 8 Yards
I used my Cricut to cut numbers and last names in iron-on vinyl. To match the font size in the film as best as I could, I used MS UI Gothic font and cut the back numbers at 5″ tall (~520pt font if you’re just printing a stencil at home). The numbers on the left sleeves are also MS UI Gothic font but only 3″ tall (310pt font). The last names were Franklin Gothic font and cut at 2″ tall (215pt font). Starting at the V at the base of the back, we ironed on the non-Warner Bros Slytherin patch 1/4″ above the stripe, the large number 1/4″ above the patch, and the name in a slight arch 1″ above the number.

Most quidditch robe closures we’ve seen have 6 eyelets on each side, but we chose to go with 3 eyelets on each side for a cleaner look and less constricting lacing. The first eyelets are 2″ from the hood, and 2″ spacing in between. They are laced with waxed dress shoe laces and tuck in well when worn.
Silver eyelets: Dritz 104-65 Eyelets, Nickel, 5/32-Inch 100-Count
Waxed shoe laces (1 lace per person): [2Pair Pack] Waxed Round Oxford Shoe Laces for Dress Shoes Chukka 3/32Inch Thin(01 Black,30in (76cm))
And finally, our mostly hidden “sweater” and pants. We live in Texas (not Scotland) and wear our uniforms here and in Atlanta for DragonCon, so the quidditch sweater was a huge “hell no!” Instead, we opted for a long sleeve hunter green t-shirt that I can no longer find online. When ours need replacing after fading in the wash, we’ll likely go with performance/technical fabric like the Nike tee below. The three of us also wear whatever black pants we have on hand, but my pants are ultra lightweight and super comfy. I wear a size medium/8 but bought these in a 10 for wiggle room. My shoes are also super comfy Sketchers.

Forget Muggle sports! None of them hold a candle to the magical game of Quidditch. Sure, Muggle sports can get dangerous, but do any of them involve flying a hundred feet or more in the air? Do they involve the possibility of falling off of brooms and plummeting to the ground? Nope, but Quidditch does, and it’s incredibly exciting to both play and watch.
Harry Potter joined the Gryffindor Quidditch team in his first year, which was highly unusual and made him the youngest Seeker in one hundred years. One year later, Draco Malfoy joined as Seeker for the Slytherin Quidditch team.
Dressing up in a Quidditch uniform is easy when you know what you need. First, decide which of the four Hogwarts Houses you will be playing for so you can select the right robe. Then add the game pieces that you need for whatever position you play. From Quidditch robes to game equipment.
Quidditch robes are a must for every Quidditch player. There are four teams, for Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin, and Hufflepuff, and the color of your robe will match the House that you belong to.
Some robes are easier to find than others. There are plenty of Gryffindor robes being sold on Amazon, but finding a Hufflepuff robe might mean that you need to turn to Etsy where sellers handmade them. I’ve included several sources so you can find the robe for your House.
You have the option of wearing a varsity team jacket. There are several styles available, although they can be hard to find.
You might recall that Quidditch players in the Harry Potter movies sometimes wore sweaters that matched their Houses. They are made from a heavy knit yarn and have accenting colors for each House.
There is also a jersey shirt that is lightweight if you don’t want the warmth of the sweater. There are several official styles and many unofficial ones.
There is an officially licensed Quidditch sock, but, unfortunately, it is only available for Gryffindor and Slytherin Houses. Each pair has a cape on the back of the legs and the number 07 on the front.
There are not too many items that a Quidditch player is required to wear but the most important item is arguably the helmet. Quidditch helmets resemble old-fashioned boxing helmets, and I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s where the design inspiration came from.
Given the fact that Quidditch players are flying on brooms high above the ground, protecting their heads from falls is a must. At first glance, Quidditch helmets don’t look very protective but I am sure that they have been magically enhanced so that students who fall don’t need to worry about their heads. Their arms, on the other hand, now that’s a different matter altogether…
An item that seems to be optional, yet very helpful, are goggles. Imagine what it must be like flying around at high speeds. Your eyes would surely take a beating even in the best weather. Days when it rains would be torturous for the players.
Goggles are the perfect item to help Quidditch players fly without wind, rain, or debris irritating their eyes. I love how the goggles have a bit of a steampunk feel to them, and that they have a golden snitch on the sides. Goggles are a nice touch if you wear a Quidditch costume.
There is an officially licensed accessory kit that includes goggles, gloves, arm guards, and knee and shin guards. The are brown and look like they are made from leather (they aren’t really) and add a nice touch to any Quidditch uniform. There’s just one thing – this set only comes in child size.
Quidditch Accessory Kit
Having a decent broom is a must for every Quidditch player. The quality of a person’s broom will directly impact how well the team does as a whole, since speed and accuracy play a big part in this game. The fastest brooms are the Nimbus 2000, Nimbus 2001, and the Firebolt.
Seekers have one job – to find and catch the Golden Snitch. The Golden Snitch is small, blazing-fast, and very difficult to see. If you are a Seeker then you will want to carry a Snitch around with your costume.
The Quaffle is the ball used to score in the game of Quidditch. It is much larger than the Golden Snitch, and it is easier to catch and throw. It is about the same size as a soccer ball (aka football) and it is the job of a Chaser to score with the Quaffle. Chasers score 10 points every time they throw the Quaffle through one of three large hoops at the opponent’s end of the Quidditch pitch.
There is an officially licensed Quaffle, but it often goes out of stock which is why I have included links to both Amazon and eBay to help you find one.
Bludger Bat and Ball
The last two pieces of equipment in the game of Quidditch are the most brutal ones. They are a small iron ball about the size of a baseball called a Bludger and a bat called a Beater’s Bat. Every game has two Bludgers that are bewitched so that they fly around trying to knock Quidditch players off their brooms.
Bludgers don’t care which team members they knock off but Beaters do. They use their Beater’s bats to direct the Bludgers toward their opponents while protecting their own teammates from Bludgers. As you might guess, this is arguably the most dangerous part of Quidditch, and concussions and broken bones are common.

The maniac was watching me from the other side and wanted to hide in the forest as soon as possible. Climbing the steep bank and finding myself in the forest, I calmed down a little. I sat down with my bare booty right on the ground, my legs buckled in the fallen autumn leaves with excitement and fatigue.

And in terms of complexion, I turned out to be the most, so to speak, frail. After getting to know each other, we went to the first building in front of our detachment houses. We lined up in one line and the camp director introduced us to our leaders. We had two counselors, a guy about eighteen years old (for boys) and a girl about the same age (for girls).
