I was so very lucky to receive some wonderful gifts from a friend who visited Harry Potter World in the Universal Studios of Orlando, Florida. I have been a Potterhead since the age of 10-11 and I always appreciate HP themed items till today. I have been wanting to go there ever since it opened because A) I want to try the butterbeer at Hogsmeade. B) I wanted to get the merchandise. C) I have watched too many documentaries on it. I can now proudly tick off the option B off my bucket list of HP related stuff. I am so, so, so grateful for these collectible items.
The things I got are a Hogwarts Diary with a beautiful metal engraved emblem (which is too pretty to write in),Gryffindor Quidditch Badge, Deathly Hallows keychain, Deathly Hallows bangle (My favourite) and a gyffindor badge string (Maybe something modern day Gryffindors would be told to wear around their neck at all times of the school day). In case you are wondering, the Hogwarts Express ticket was not included. It is something I got at a Comic Con two years and initially I wanted to use it as a bookmark but I didn't want it to get lost or ruined so I just kept it with my books and it has finally been of some use today. I played around with my camera to try and get some tumblr-ish photos(I tried) of the items and here's how they turned out.
