The great thing about living in such a great city like LA, is that there is never a shortage of fun things to do.  Another great thing, is that the geek/nerd populace is thriving here, so there is never a shortage of fun NERD things to do either.

Dumbledore’s Army, LA hosted a great event at Universal Studios, Hollywood at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter called “Dressed to the 9 3/4”.  Basically, it was Dapper Day, Universal edition.  Potterheads descended upon the park in their best vintage looks with a Harry Potter twist.  Here are some photos from the day with the kiddo and our friends.




Now, as for the Scout and my outfits, here are the details:

Shoes by Converse

Petticoats from Amazon

Dresses from Target

Fascinators from JoAnn Fabric


The brooches were a creation of my own.  I used fabric from JoAnn’s folded into a pocket square and added pins and earrings and hot glue gunned the whole thing together.  Here they are up close:


It looked like the event was a success, so here’s hoping that they do it again next year!

If you have some pics from the day, we’d love to see them!

Love, Kim and Scout
