How to Dress Like Neville Longbottom
Neville Longbottom is often the character of choice for fancy-dress parties, themed parties, Halloween, etc. As a costume, It's very simple, yet very effective. So follow these steps for an authentic Neville look!
Wear a lot of knitted cardigans and jumpers. If you watch the movies, you'll see that he wears these often. Also, if it's cold, wear a big coat and some scarves, maybe even a Gryffindor scarf if you can get hold of one. If you can knit, make your own.
Carry some books on plants around. It's a pretty well known fact that Neville likes Herbology and is good at it.
Try a striped shirt and a sweater vest. This is worn particularly in OOTP.
Wear some pinstriped trousers and smart looking shoes.
Maybe try to act a bit shy and hunched up. Also try to perfect a northern accent.
There isn't really a specific hair style. Neville's hair has varied throughout the movies, so don't worry about whether your hair is curly or straight. Don't worry too much about color either, as even though his hair is brown in the movies, in the books it is described to be blond.
Neville is a Gryffindor. If you're dressing as him in his uniform, try to get some Hogwarts robes and a Gryffindor scarf, as mentioned in step one.
- Neville often looks as though he's trying to look smart and intelligent but isn't doing very well.
- Don't be too bumbling, or you may trip over something. (Although this would be very Neville like)
