ANFSCD: A Very Harry Halloween

Warning ahead of time… it gets a bit.. um.. collegey in this post.

For this Halloween my friends and I decided to go a bigger then just a simple Halloween party. We decided, why not do a Harry Potter Party, and man was it a success. We had apple cider, butter beer, trivia, movies, expelliarmis shots, and of course… Quidditch Pong.

What’s Quidditch Pong Louis? Good question, Louis. Quidditch Pong is a personal invention that mixes the timely art of beer pong, and the amazing wizard sport Quidditch.

First you have to make the hoops. I made mine with hangers and yellow duct tape. Make sure you make them various sizes!

Then you have to make some butter beer. Here was my recipe:
           7 parts Rootbeer or Cream Soda
           1 part butterscotch schnaaps
           1 part vanilla vodka (for an extra kick!)

You can find some other recipes for butter beer, including non alcoholic, here:

The rules for Quidditch Pong are much like beer pong with a few changes:

  1. Choose what team goes first with your sorting hat!

  2. If the quaffle (ping pong ball) goes through a hoop and makes it in the cup it counts as two (much like if the ball were to bounce)
  3. If the quaffle goes through a hoop the enemy team is allowed to use there bludgers (hands) to knock it out of the way.
  4. When there is one cup left, the snitch must be used. Trust me, this makes things a lot more difficult. I made my snitch by just wrapping a ball in yellow duct tape and attaching a few wings made out of paper, but you could easily use a yellow ping pong ball with glued on wings.
  5. Enjoy!!
We split the party up into houses to make the game more competitive.
We finished the tri-wizard tornament off with some Expeliarmus Shots! You can find the instructions here:

The party went awesomely. We’ll definitely be doing this next year!

How to Crochet: Wings

Man, I got some good puns.

So I recently bought myself a new camera to commemorate the blogs popularity (obviously that’s a lie haha), and to commemorate my new camera, I made a new pattern!

When I was making my bat hat, I looked around for a pattern for wings, but couldn’t find anything that really worked, so I made some and thought of some other uses for them, and thus came the owl and snitch!

Without further ado here it is!

Note: This pattern is for the wings and main body only, the entire pattern for the owl is coming soon, so check back.
