And the story...

Bellatrix is a character I find really interesting. I'm a big Harry Potter fan, and as I had already done a Ravenclaw costume, I chose to make something different. As Luce wanted to make a Narcissa outfit, we decided to wear the Black sisters together!
As Bellatrix had not appeared in the movies yet, I was free to create a dress I thought she would wear, because her clothes are not really described in the books. Thus, this is much more an original costume than a cosplay. ^^ I chose to make a younger Bellatrix, that's why it's "Black" and not "Lestrange". With my round face, I knew I would never look like someone who's just spent years and years in Azkaban :P
I wanted to make something a little bit more elegant, with a beautiful cape, but I didn't have enough time to finish properly, so the dress isn't exactly as I wanted it to be :(
