The big day is coming!

In honor of tomorrow’s release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, I’m posting some Harry Potter dolls today.

This artist calls herself Vulkanette on Deviantart, and it’s not clear if she made these alone or if her husband collaborated with her. Her name is Irene and her husband is William, and they seem to be German or Dutch, but beyond that I haven’t been able to discover much. Their work includes paintings, sculpture, costume and a Star Trek fan movie, and much of it centers on Star Trek or Harry Potter fandom. Her dolls above are almost eerily realistic renditions of the movie characters. He’s not my favorite character, but I just love her Remus Lupin! Above you’ll also find two versions of Snape, Mad-Eye Moody, a Thestral and Fawkes the phoenix.

WeasleyGirl12 works in style that some people are beginning to adopt for illustrations in polymer clay. She has more work than I could include here on her DeviantArt page, so go check it out. What you see here are her versions of Harry from Goblet of Fire; Lucius Malfoy (probably also from GoF, judging by his costume); Snape; Sirius Black; a tableau called “Potions Accident;” Luna Lovegood, complete with radish earrings; Harry as a baby with his dad, James; Professor Slughorn and Harry from Half-Blood Prince; and Tom Riddle.

She has such a cute style; I’ve been wanting to develop that technique myself.

Worry dolls

And finally: Worried about the fate of your favorite trio? Kelayrel on Etsy.com offers Harry Potter worry dolls. According to Guatemalan tradition, you put the dolls under your pillow and they worry for you, so you can sleep better.

Happy Harry Potter Day!
