Winter Holidays at the Elven School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

Over a week ago, I noticed it was already February and that the Winter Holidays (and 2019) were already far behind us now… Yet I still haven’t written about the photo project, centered around the 2019 LEGO Harry Potter Advent Calendar, that kept me busy in December.

Without any doubts, this calendar was for me the best LEGO ever made. Not a single gift felt unnecessary, uninteresting, too simplistic or lacking details. Maybe this was because of the novelty and maybe the next one (assuming we will get another HP calendar) will feel repetitive like the other Star Wars or City calendars. Yet, I loved it so much that I don’t care if Christmas is long gone and I can’t wait until next year to write about my little HP/Elves cross-over project.

The HP Advent Project

Looking back at SiPgoes53, my favorite part of the project has been to disguise my Elves as witches and wizards and giving them names inspired by Harry Potter characters. When the Harry Potter Advent Calendar was unveiled at the end of the summer, I immediately thought about mixing and matching it with my Elves.

Contrarily to the Friends calendar, I didn’t binge-open it as soon as I got it. So when December arrived, I decided to open it day after day. Something I had never done with a LEGO Advent Calendar.

Faran Potter loves the Winter Holidays because he can ride the Christmas train of the School.

It was hard at the beginning to have to resist and wait for the next day. But I got used to it and it became a part of my daily routine. Once fully opened, I knew I would miss posting every morning a quick improvised smartphone photo as an IG Story.

So to celebrate such a fun and acoustic project, I decided to take indoor photos with my band of Elven Witches and Wizards before the end of 2020. Now it’s time to stop procrastinating and share the result.

Winter Holidays at the Elven School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

Elfus Dumbledore, the Headmistress of the Elven School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, is declaring the Winter Holidays season officially open, accompanied by Professor Elfirus Snape and Minerva McGonagelf.
Santa came during the night with presents for everyone.
Bellatrix Elfstrange from Slytherin hasn’t been that naughty last year and got a big present just for herself.
Elphadora Tonks and her unnamed Hufflepuff friend, on the other hand, might have been quite naughty as they didn’t get a present as big as the other houses.
Rosa Lovegood and her unnamed friend from Ravenclaw also got a present.
Finally, Our heroes Azari Granger, Faran Potter, and Ron Elfsley must have been very nice as they got the most presents.

Faran got a new owl pet, and apparently his letter of admission too…
Azari got a spellbook.
Ron was the luckiest as he got a trunk full of chocolate.
They also got a chess game.
After opening their presents, they decided to build a snowman.
And were finally joined in the evening by Elf Delacourt for dinner.

These are awesome shots, Mäelick. I think you nailed this series and I think you can use some of them for our twenty twenty Xmas card exchange :)

Just saying.
