You know, this thing. Did I mention I had been waiting for so long?
Yes, my friends. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince movie came out, well, today. I was going to say last night, but it was technically this morning. And my sisters and I went to the midnight premiere!
And because we're cool, we dressed up as characters from the movie/book.
We look awesome, huh? Kar is Bellatrix Lestrange, I'm Tonks, and Lex is Luna Lovegood.
The movie was, in short, awesome. I laughed, and cried, and laughed, and sighed, and got chills, and laughed, and jumped, and laughed, and went "eeeee!" a few times under my breath.
We went to Perkins for some pie before heading over to the movie. I had way too much fun with my "wand" (a wooden cooking spoon). I would say "Alohomora!" at the door before opening it up. We were walking in the dark and I'd say "Lumos!" It really is a shame that magic isn't real.
I was surprised and pleased by how many people dressed up. But some people's characters were kind of a mystery. Like, they'd have their faces painted a certain way, but it wasn't definitive. I was like, Draco? Voldemort? Crabbe? Ron?
When I was walking down the hall at the theatre, a chick yelled down the hall, "Hey, Tonks!" I turned around, thinking maybe it was someone I knew. But I totally didn't know her. But hey, it made me feel good, knowing that my character was recognizable by how I dressed up. I don't know, maybe it was the hair that gave it away.
When we got there the movie workers were like, "You can't bring your wands in here. You might cast a spell or something." But then the manager guy was like, "Oh, we're not letting wands in? I didn't know." So we didn't know if they were being serious or not. I ended up taking the wands back to the car, but later we saw a ton of people with wands, so maybe they were being dumb teenagers or something.
It was so fun, but I'm definitely paying the price in tiredness today. But that price is worth it. SO worth it. If you get a chance, go! Like, go today!
