Real-Life Quidditch Is Now A Thing And It’s Just As Awesome As You Think

Hey, I love Harry Potter Crafts so much that I wrote a book about them! My book, THE UNOFFICIAL GUIDE TO CRAFTING THE WORLD OF HARRY POTTER IS AWESOME AND YOU SHOULD TOTALLY BUY IT.

The Unofficial Guide to Crafting the World of Harry Potter: 30 Magical Crafts for Witches and Wizards from Pencil Wands to House Colors Tie-Dye Shirts

The Unofficial Guide To Crafting The World Of Harry Potter By Jamie Harrington

This book is full of charming Harry Potter crafts even Muggles can make!

You won’t need alchemy or a magic wand to make these magical projects inspired by the world of Harry Potter. With a little Hogwarts creativity and the step-by-step guidance of this spellbinding book, you’ll be able to transfigurate simple supplies and things around the house into everything from Remembrall Rings to Butterbeer Lip Balm to Nargles for your front lawn.

You’ll be as busy as Mrs. Weasley knitting her Christmas sweaters as you dive into dozens of Potterific projects. Relive the excitement of Harry’s adventures with these genius crafts. Drop some homemade Pgymy Puff Bath Fizzies into the tub and pretend you’re Moaning Myrtle. Keep memories of the Quidditch pitch close with your very own Golden Snitch Necklace. Or show off the Sorting Hat’s selection with a House Colors Tie-Dye Shirt.

Accio, crafting supplies–it’s time for some wonderful wizardly fun!

And don’t worry the crafts in my book are totally different than the list below, so you will have TONS of HP craft-tastic goodies!

Of all the many things in the Harry Potter universe that I wish were real (the whole magic thing, for one), probably the most exciting to see or do in real life would be Quidditch. Forget Blitzball, Grifball, and Calvinball – Quidditch is the king of fictional sports, and if you could play the real thing, why would you even bother throwing a football around ever again? Sure, there are Quidditch leagues out there – even an International Quidditch Association – that have made it possible to play the sport on the ground. But as it turns out, there IS a way to get amazingly, awesomely close to being up in the air playing the real thing: you and a few friends just need to know how to skydive.

Real-Life Quidditch

A group of skydivers in Colombia took to the air recently to give us all a taste of what playing real Quidditch would be like as part of an advertising stunt for ETB, a Colombian telecommunications company. Complete with broomsticks, a Quaffle, and a goal hoop – not to mention the group’s sweet custom Quidditch gear – they’re making all of us non-skydivers seriously jealous of their ability to become wizards whenever they want…at least until they have to open their parachutes. You have GOT to see this video!

Now I just need to learn how to skydive…
