Like all you Harry Potter fans, we were excited to see that they were opening a studio tour in London, we promptly booked tickets to go. We were not dissapointed. The details from the exhibits were amazing. I didn't think you'd need such good details for the films. I am probably still basing my thinking on how badly the models for Star Wars were made. But that was the 80's right and they were good for then.
I have made a few layouts from the visit. I am grouping all my Harry Potter Studio tour layouts here. Sorry if you have seen these layouts as some might have appeared in other blog posts separately.
I was so excited to see large posters of film scenes on the walls outside, I just had to snap the guys from the back. I drew and cut out some owls, broomstick, hat etc for my own magic scene.
The flying car was one of the first thing we saw when we got inside. I shot maybe 10 photos of it but as it was dark and there were a lot of people around to spoil the shots, I didn't get a very good photo. I was delighted to find another, outside, in the backlot. I let the boys drive.
In the wand room, all the wands are indivually boxed, labelled and neatly stacked up. Each one "belongs" to a cast from the films. One of the visitor at the time was a crew member and she very kindly pointed out her wand from the thousands in there.
Did you get a chance to taste butterbeer ? I thought it tasted just like rootbeer...we used to have a lot of this from A&W when I was growing up. Diagon Alley was perfect in every detail...especially the book shop...I could spend many hours browsing in there if it was a real book store. I still have a few Harry Potter layouts planned that I will continue to add to this post.
