I was having a long discussion with my friend, Moriah, about the first seven Harry Potter badges. The first seven were designed to have parts used during a day camp event.
Moriah was looking at it from a costumer’s viewpoint. She is an excellent seamstress who makes outfits and accessories for AMTGARD events. For day camps, costumes can be too much. So, we got into a discussion of what kind of Harry Potter event would be good for costumes. We came up with Christmas.
So, now we have an eighth badge for the set, to be done during the winter holidays. It’s cool enough for costumes and great for groups that are having problems meeting during the school year because of conflicting activities.
And, even better, I have a volunteer when I run a Harry Potter event.
