Accio Eyeshadow! When Reddit user Spellsandstars first posted pictures of her imagined Harry Potter House Palettes, she wanted to make it clear that she owns nothing HP related. In fact, she’s an artist. Not a manufacturer, not a marketer, she’s someone who imagined an amazing idea and wanted to share it with the world. Well, I’m here to tell you, if ever she Did take this to market, I’d give her ALL THE MONEY. I am in LOVE with these concepts and exactly how she imagined them.
With the mirror of Erised to show us exactly what we desire to look like, and quill-inspired brushes for applying, each palette comes with it’s house seal, and colors that define each of the house traits. For Gryffindor: Nerve, Bravery, Fire, Daring, Courage, Chivalry…
Slytherin: Creative, Cunning, Greatness, Ambitious, Resourceful, Emerald…
Hufflepuff: Ethic, Trust, Dedication, Charming, Loyal, Kind…
Ravenclaw: Sapphire, Wisdom, Cleaver, Wit, Intelligence, Bronze…
I might only be a muggle, but I can still imagine myself with shimmering eyes attending the Yule Ball. Or just going out on a Friday night.
From the messages on the Reddit thread, I’m not alone. Muggles and wizards alike are practically begging to hand over our cash and galleons all in the name of beauty. As for Spellsandstars, what started out as an inspired art project might turn into a game-changing money-maker if she ever considers putting it up on Kickstarter…seriously, I’d fund it in a day.
