Harry Potter Exhibit review

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review,    

Last weekend I, JAS of Bitter Balcony, ventured out into the harsh cold reality of Seattle’s mean streets [SNICKER] and attended the Harry Potter Exhibit. Pacific Science Center is currently providing the space where one can see mock mini sets, props and costumes from the series of films. Fans of the series were in attendance, of course, excited to find out what “house” they belonged to. I wasn’t selected to find what out what that was for me, but as long as I write for Bitter Balcony I suspect I’ll default to Slytherin, just like Voldemort. The sorting hat would have spoken and who are we to disagree with a talking hat.

While wandering the passageways fans pointing gleefully at every talking painting and detailed wand it’s easy to see that anyone who enjoys the series would find the experience entertaining. Costumes are set next to props, labeled with the character’s names and the actors that portrayed them. For Twilight fans, there are two articles of costume fanciness that were worn by that amazing talent that is Robert Pattinson.

After getting past the first part of the costumes and just before the props you are treated to Hagrid’s over-sized home and a costume for the giant man (not the actual actor). Some of the props included one and a half centaur models, Kreature, Dobby and a Griffin model that was used to help the actors and special effects crew. The details on these models were pretty amazing and the centaurs above all were pretty freaky to look at.

All in all the experience was worth the expense and a must see for anyone who considers themselves a fan of the series. I don’t fall into that category, but can respect the work that goes into these projects and the attention to detail that went into the costumes, props and the exhibit itself.

It's cool that things like this exist, but the Potter series is a tad lame and doesn't embody what the exhibit could be.

The exhibit looks awesome. Too bad I can give a crap about Potter.
