Wizards getting political this year at three Harry and the Potter booth @LeakyCon (Taken with Instagram)
I was helping sell these this weekend. The “Voldemort Can’t Stop Barack” shirt was probably the most popular. While I was off getting some food I happened to miss the greatest reaction to the shirt. Luckily my buddies were very happy to tell me all about it.
A woman, who obviously took offense to the sentiment, walked up, pointed at the shirt, and proceeded to declare, “You are delusional!” Really, she’s right. Obviously, a fictional character can totally stop Barack Obama. After all he does have his posse of Death Eaters and a useful Avada Kedavra up his sleeve. Oh wait…
I was there, and it was wonderful. I also now own one of those glorious blue shirts, and that is also wonderful.
Designed these a while ago, but I needed to tweak them to export slightly bigger images.
I don’t really like putting those watermarks there, but this is the internet.
This is like that fake-FX Auror TV show, except these fans are using Kickstarter to make it into web series. As BuzzFeed points out, let’s hope they don’t get shut down by Warner Bros. for copyright infringement. Regardless, this trailer is pretty kick ass.
