FANGIRL FRIDAY: Harry Potter 15th Anniversary Cover Launch


After 7 months spent in storage, my Slytherin robe finally saw the light of day,Β thanks to the Harry Potter 15th Anniversary Cover Launch event we had at the SMX Convention Center last Sunday! πŸ˜€

We had games, cake, and House cheer-offs that could have rivaled that of the UAAP’s. (Well, no, maybe not, but close! LOL.)

We gave away posters, wand pens, shirts, and — for the extremely bad-ass (and lucky) — complete book sets and a lithograph signed by Kazu Kibuishi.

Me goodies. :D

What better way to make new book covers feel welcome than the presence of other book covers from all over the world?

The turnout was crazy! One we obviously did not expect! (We didn’t expect the venue to be as such, either, LOL.) WHAT IS AIRCON? Moreover, WHAT IS OXYGEN? :))
