Here are 10 sirius-ly creepy Harry Potter Halloween costume ideas
Halloween is a time for costume parties and candy for most people, but for Harry Potter fans the excitement is beyond words. It is a time for Potterheads to dress up like their favourite characters, but during this time it is not Harry, Ron, Hermione, or Fred and George. This time of the year, it is time to deck up like characters like the Hogwarts ghost Nearly Headless Nick or the wicked wizard Lord Voldemort.
Halloween 2023 will be celebrated on October 31. If you would like to dress up like some of your favourite spooky Harry Potter characters this year, here are some ideas for you.
The first time Hermione drank Polyjuice Potion, she transformed into a scaryhuman-cat hybrid because instead of human hair, she mistakenly plucked a cat hair from Millicent Bullstrodes' robes.

Dressing up like Peter Pettigrew would give you one of the creepiest looks this Halloween. Known by his nickname Wormtail, Peter hasgrubby skin, thin hair and a bald patch. He has strange rat-like features that give the readers/audience an extremely eerie feeling.
Remember the howling letter Ron received from his mother after stealing the flying car? Dressing up like the note isn't a bad idea. The magical letter comes in a red envelope, and a high-pitched voice of the writer reads the angry words aloud.

Nearly Headless Nick, also known by his official name Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington, is a famousGryffindor house ghost. He is known for the fact that his head was attached to his body by a single flap of skin. He is seen in the movies nearly separating his head from his body.
Bellatrix Lestrange personifies what a film or book villain looks like. Known asone of the most evil witches in wizarding history, she tortured her victims and carried out other cruel acts. Bellatrix killed Sirius Black, Harry's godfather, and tortured Neville Longbottom's parents. Her curly hair and pitch black robes have become a symbol of evil.

J.K. Rowling describedVoldemort as "the most evil wizard for hundreds and hundreds of years". The white, noseless wicked wizard's look is an ideal Halloween costume.
Dolores Umbridge and her all-pink dresses have become a symbol of cruelty, with some saying she is a character more hated than Voldemort is. She punished her students with harsh methods, for example, she forced Harry to slash "I must not tell lies" onto his hand with a magical quill.”
Professor Quirrell, a disciple of the Dark Lord, is deemed evil because he chose to follow a person as evil as Voldemort. His bald look, coupled with his eerie expressions if one can impersonate them, could make an amazing Halloween look.
Looking like Dementors could be a good Halloween costume idea simply because of how frightening they appear –tall, black-cloaked figures with rotten, skeletal hands. The creatures are known tosuck a person's soul out and drain them of feeling of happiness.

Moaning Myrtle, a ghost who haunts a girls' toilet in Hogwarts, is actually an innocent girl who was killed years ago. However, her glum face and thick glasses make her appear strange and scary.
