A comprehensive, full-color compendium of the key characters in all eight of the Harry Potter films, filled with never-before-seen photographs and illustrations, covering the costumes, makeup, weaponry, and behind-the-scenes story that brought each personality memorably to life on the big screen. Harry Potter: The Character Vault offers fans a deeper look at the creative development of the characters introduced in the books and brought to life in the theatrical series. Jody Revenson brings you closer to Harry, Ron, Hermione, and the students and faculty at Hogwarts, the bureaucrats at the Ministry of Magic, the Triwizard Tournament competitors, the wizarding world families, and the dark forces against them. Each profile in the book includes design sketches and unit photography showcasing the costumes of each character, along with an image of his or her wand, and other iconic props specific to the characters—brooms, Harry’s invisibility cloak, Mad-Eye Moody’s eye and prosthetic leg, and more. Discover how Quidditch gear and Hogwarts’ robes subtly changed as the characters grew up, discover the fashion and artistry behind the Weasley style, the Yule Ball dresses and robes, Slug Club party wear, and Death Eater masks and costumes. Interweaving interviews with the special effects experts, costume designers, makeup artists and the cast, Jody Revenson shows fans how the magic happens, revealing the unique filming techniques used to change particular characters’ sizes, such as a giant Hagrid and Madame Maxime, as well as special makeup processes that created the look of Harry’s Stinging Hex and Peter Pettigrew’s rat-like visage. Featured throughout are intriguing profiles of the special makeup effects artists who share the most memorable effects they’ve used to transform ordinary actors into their extraordinary fictional counterparts.

Through classroom activities, wizard rock concerts, and organizations like the Harry Potter Alliance, Harry Potter fans are using creativity to positively impact the world. This collection of essays and interviews examines how playful fandom—from fanfiction to Muggle quidditch, cosplay, role-playing games, and even Harry Potter burlesque—not only reimagines the canon but also challenges consumerism, questions notions of identity, and fosters participatory culture. The contributors explore issues applicable to fan studies and performance studies at large, such as the role of performance, the nature of community, and questions of representation and ownership in the digital age. Presented in three parts, the essays discuss discrepancies between sanctioned versions of Harry Potter and fan creations, the reenactment and reinterpretation of the original narrative in fan performance, and collaborative and participatory performances that break down the boundaries between actors and audiences.
