Harry Potter Challenge: Beauxbaton version

Yes I was one of those who disturbed your movie by bawling her eyes out. I couldn't help it, the tears started when the Hogwarts teachers began putting up spells to defend the castle and didn't stop until the credits rolled.
I grew up with Harry, I have laughed with him, I have cried with him. I was at every single midnight book release, and have probably read each one in the excess of ten times. After every new film release, it was mandatory tradition that I go and re-watch all the previous films and re-read each book.
I clung desperately onto the films after the book releases ended and now that even the films have ended, I feel like my childhood is well and truly over T.T

"Harry Potter is about confronting fears, finding inner strength and doing what is right in the face of adversity. Twilight is about how important it is to have a boyfriend."
— Stephen King

Yumeko over at Bittenbefore started a Harry Potter makeup challenge to celebrate the release of the last film and a couple of my favourite Twitter ladies along with myself decided to jump to the challenge!

Yumeko's Griffindor
Vicky's Hufflepuff:
Justine's Ravenclaw:
Yasumi's Slytherin:
And finally, my off the beaten path Beauxbaton:

"Bah! Bill don't look at me, I'm 'ideous."

Do you like my wand? It's Sirius' xD
