"My heart going boom, boom, boom HEY! He said, grab your things I 'm gonna take you home" -Solsbury Hill

Happy new year!


To begin, here's some last month's Harry Potter idea designs & more Marvel (baddies) silhouettes









Kingsley Shacklebolt & Tell-Tale Tunic: mini invention about an inherited tunic which tells the past, present & future with specific images. Even the most expert fortuneteller will have problems understanding them, because they're constantly changing. Yeah kinda silly, who the heck cares about Kingsley Shacklebolt. Anyway.




Minerva McGonagall, the animagus- i highlighted her spine to reflect her pose towards complicated situations and to show off her... coldness.





Mrs. Weasley, sweet as a peach (thus the peach-shaped head)




Naughty, naughty Ginny, thinking of half-naked boys at your age. Naughty, naughty me.




Dear Ol Mr. Weasley- always working on Muggle stuff so I guess he never has the time to eat- that's why I made him skinny. Ah yes, and a muggle shirt. :)




Another person who's always working and never has the time to eat. Plus a large, old Greeky toga (not ambiguous tunic/toga like thingy) which makes him majestic (and sexy), as a symbol of the moral weight he has to carry.

basically:
old = past
heavy = pain in the ass




Trelawney must be a superstitious woman, so she avoids black as much she can on her clothes. Rowling describes her glasses made her look like an insect, but she didn't specify which- so I chose a mantis. Plus endless jewelry collection.



Lupin, probably one of my favourite characters :) his tight trench coat is some kind of metaphor about his animal-persona retention by the Whomping Willow. He's poor, so he always has difficulties on nutrition.. but when he turns into a werewolf I guess he has this "all-you-can-eat" feast- hence the "extra belly"





Tonks- Yep, agreed, gothic - but I added a bit of colour, that's how more or less I picture her- "gothic-cute"


Patroni
