Halloween marks the beginning of the Wizarding World Holidays...

...And, we are all set to celebrate!

Grab your Wizard Wear!  Channel your favorite character!

It is time for our annual HP Halloween Party.

Bring a dish to share, dress in your costume of choice, and/or bring a carved pumpkin. This year we'll have a contest for the best of each of these!

Always a fun event - hope to see you there!!

This could almost be a photo from one of our parties, but it is not.

This is Nekori98's art from the Leaky galleries:

    Cute costumes & pumpkins, yummy food, butterbeer, pumpkin juice and HP games made this a fun event. Thanks to all who came out - and a special "Thank You" to our Head of Magical games for setting up our costume, food and pumpkin carving contest and providing the prizes.

    So, I got stuck working late. Still trying to make it, but will definitely be late if I make it at all. I'm afraid my cauldron of dry ice will have to wait until next time. :( I just need to take my fun days off completely, don't I?

      If only I wouldn't have to return her tonight as well. I'll keep you all posted!

    Remind me--does the clubhouse have an oven or a microwave for reheating food?

    October 20, 2012

    • KateKintail

      If memory serves, it has a microwave, sink, and fridge but no oven.

    Bringing roasted chestnuts!

    Okay treat of the day is semi-savory pumpkin/apple/cranberry pasties and will be vegetarian friendly. They are a sort of an experiment I came up with in the kitchen this morning. You are all my guinea pigs mwahahaha.

    Ah. No. The one out in Baltimore. www.bengies.com

    I can't make it! :( I got an opportunity to go to the drive in tonight. Sorry, guys!

    October 20, 2012

    • Kristen S.

      Oooh, is that the one in Stephens City, VA? I went there a few weeks ago.

    So, my pumpkin carving may not be happening. BUT I will bring one of the coolest (literally) centerpieces of all (if I can find it!).

    Since I have a new foam-making machine, I'll be doing WWoHP butterbeer again. (Now with park accurate fluff foam!) BTW I will be using generic soda. So if you would rather have real sugar, bring your own bottles of Virgil's Cream Soda & I'll doctor it up for you. (Virgil's is just too expensive for me to do it for everybody. & DO NOT bring Jones' - that stuff doesn't work at all.)
    Oh & yes, the "adult" addictive will be available too.

    2 · October 16, 2012

    • Rach

      Oh & a bottle of sparkling pumpkin juice.

      2 · October 16, 2012

    • Rach

      & the machine has a screw loose... no really, the main drive shaft is too big for the nut that's supposed to secure it. <grr> but oh the double-entendres ;-) So still doing Park Butterbeer, but manually.

    How many people are carving pumpkins? I need to know how many goodie bags to put together for people who participate. Reply here if you're going to bring a pumpkin!

    October 15, 2012

    • KateKintail

      Cool. I'm actually just going to do goodie bags for the three winners and two runners-up in each, so I don't need a count any more. But thanks! Michelle- bring the completed ones to be judged, definitely :-)

      Well my carved pumpkin turned into a couple of carved squash lol. But what do you do when inspiration strikes? Also, I made the mistake of picking up a fruit that was next to the cactus leaves and my hand is full of needles now. Or rather, the store made the mistake of selling them in the first place...

  • Wendy

    I will bring something just not sure what yet

    Hi. I was wondering, is anyone coming from out West. I am in Ashburn, and been having some car troubles lately. I've been wanting to attend a meet up with this group for a while but keep on missing due to transportation issues. I am more than willing to chip in for gas

    October 18, 2012

  • Miriah

    Okay because I had an idea for a recipe and was playing in the kitchen this morning I will be bringing pumpkin juice as well as some pumpkin pie soda I found at the store the other day and thought was delicious. I'll also probably bring some other actual food item that is as of yet, undetermined.

    October 17, 2012

  • Michelle

    I am so behind on things! I'm coming straight from work, so the costume will probably be very bad, and food will probably be in a plastic container, and the pumpkin may be non-existant BUT I WILL TRY TO DO IT ALL.

    October 17, 2012

  • KateKintail

    This just in! New competitions! This year we'll be voting on the best pumpkin, the best food/beverage item, and the best costume. So try your hand at one or all three!

    October 17, 2012

  • Kristen S.

    How late are we allowed to use the clubhouse?

    October 16, 2012

    • delma

      I know it is not later than midnight - but, it might be as early as 11.

      October 16, 2012

  • delma

    Are you planning your costume? carved creation? food item? I will probably bring a Nagini Snake Sandwich again. (See photos from previous years.)

    October 10, 2012

    • Miriah

      Costume planned, all out of ideas for a pumpkin but I'll think of something, and uh food ideas... let me get back to you on that.

      October 16, 2012

    • KateKintail

      I tried a steamed veggies recipe on Sunday and it was terrible because I messed the recipe up. This is why I can't cook. I'll bring veggies or salad of some sort, as that's mostly what I eat these days :-) I have no costume idea

      October 16, 2012

  • Amelia B.

    Not going to lie, I'll probably bring something from Giant. LoL.

    2 · October 10, 2012

  • Katey

    I will bring a pumpkin pie.
