If I could choose any character from the Harry Potter series to learn more about, Narcissa Malfoy would be near the top of my list. How did she and Lucius meet? What are her morals? Is she really evil, or has she simply made terrible decisions? I don’t know if I’ll ever get those answers, so I’ll take whatever Narcissa-related things come my way — like this costume by Alexie Star Cosplay.
She crafted her Lady Malfory ensemble months ago. This is a costume you could absolutely piece together from existing clothes if you wanted, but Alexie went above and beyond. She said:
This outfit is made from a Wool Felt fabric in green that we (an amazing friend by the name of Krystal came over and helped me sew lines) had sewn wavy lines into, using a silver metallic thread to get the proper texture. I used a premade pattern that I then heavily modified and added the collar using a draping method.
You can see a close-up of the altered fabric just below.
The two-tone wig is the perfect finishing touch. She’s accompanied by Elliot’s Cosplay as Lucius in the above photo.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
