22. An Iconic Opening Line:
"Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" by JK Rowling

“Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” by JK Rowling

Ok, so it’s a really obvious choice, but it’s one of the two well-known opening lines which I can remember by heart (the other being the one from “Pride and Prejudice”!), and I prefer this one from “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” by JK Rowling! It’s a surprise because the series opens with a Muggle point of view and we are introduced to two characters who don’t play huge roles in the series but are still fairly important because of one decision they make: to take care of their nephew Harry Potter on the death of his parents. Maybe “take care of” is the wrong phrase to use, as they are very unpleasant to the boy, but they could have sent him to an orphanage instead!

17. Chapter Title:
Chapter title from "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows"

Chapter title from “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”

I chose this chapter title from “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” because it is a very important chapter as it introduces us to the idea of the Deathly Hallows and how powerful and terrible they can be. It’s amazing that what many people thought was just a children’s story is actually real!

10. Book Character Costume:

I have chosen Bellatrix Lestrange from the Harry Potter series, purely because she wears a lot of black and is less common choice than Harry or Hermione! She is Voldemort’s right hand woman, and is possibly the most blood-thirsty Death Eater!

This outfit consists of her cruel-looking wand, black leather boots, a black dress with loosely-attached sleeves, black tights and her silver Death Eaters’ mask. I’ve added a knife (which she kills Dobby with!) and she is supposed to have messy, curly dark hair (but the model doesn’t!). I’ve never had the opportunity to dress up like a Harry Potter character but Bellatrix looks like fun to try!

This is probably the hardest challenge day so far! It involved a lot of head-scratching and wardrobe searching (after consulting the internet for ideas)!
