My Harry Potter Studios Trip!

On the 30th April, I took a trip to Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studio Tour with my boyfriend and fellow Geek Masher, Casey. I've wanted to visit there ever since the studio opened its doors a few years ago, but I never had the opportunity to visit. Thankfully, as a birthday treat, I got my chance this April! 

As a massive Harry Potter fan (both the books and the films), I was looking forward to seeing all of the props, costumes and sets up close and in person. A lot of the sets seemed smaller than they appeared to be in the films, which was both surprising and impressive. The Great Hall was an example of this! 

It was also pretty bittersweet seeing everything from a series I absolutely love, complete with music from the films piping through the speakers too. I took a lot of pictures, but here's a few below!

I also filmed a few brief videos whilst walking around. Check out my Instagram (username: 8BitGirl88) to see these! 

And it ended with...
An engagement! Casey proposed to me at the Hogwarts castle, complete with a Harry Potter themed proposal! The answer was yes, of course. Here's what he used:

Quidditch ball set! The ring box became a replacement Snitch!
