Snape Costume

From his hair, wand, and Death Eater tattoo to his coat and pants, here are all the items you need for a Severus Snape costume.

How would you like to insult and belittle every Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger you come across on Halloween? If that sounds appealing to you, then you need to dress up in a Severus Snape costume!

The unlikable Professor Snape was much loved and hated before the Harry Potter series ended. Before the final book was published there was a large group of fans who just knew there had to be more to Snape than met the eye. It turns out they were right. There is no denying that Snape hated Harry, but he worked harder than anyone to keep Harry safe from the wrath of the returned Lord Voldemort.

By the time the series ended, Harry learned just how much Snape had done to protect him. Harry’s total understanding of who Snape was did not occur until after Snape’s death. It was only then that Harry realized and acknowledged that Snape was the bravest man Harry had ever met, and honored Snape by naming his second son after the professor.

Replica Coat And Pants

Professor Snape was often seen wearing a coat that has a cravat (a cravat is a neckband, which is white on this outfit). The coat seen below is an exact replica of the coat worn by Snape during several of the Harry Potter movies. Click the image below to find the right size for you.

What is a coat without pants? Incomplete, that’s what. There are matching pants to go with this coat. My favorite aspect of these pants is the row of buttons above the hem of each leg. Like the coat, you can click the image to find the right size for you.

The coat and pants go in and out of stock. If you click on either link but don’t see the coat or pants then that item is not currently available.

Severus Snape is described and seen as having shoulder-length, straight, black hair. If you do not have such hair, then you can buy a wig to use to give yourself a more authentic Snape look for your costume. There is no official Snape wig, but that is not a problem. Michael Jackson wigs are a perfect look for Snape’s hair.

As with all the witches and wizards in the world of Harry Potter, Snape has a wand. Author J.K. Rowling has never disclosed what wood Snape’s wand is made from, so feel free to come up with the wood you think best represents his personality. The same is true of the magical element in the core of the wand. Could it be dragon’s heartstring? A bat wing? Or perhaps a troll whisker? You get to decide.

Death Eater Tattoo

As we all know, Snape was once a Death Eater. Since all Death Eaters were branded by a magical tattoo by Lord Voldemort, it would be appropriate for you to use a temporary tattoo to show Snape’s history with the Dark Lord. We never saw Snape's dark mark tattoo, but we know that he had one, so you should, too!
