The Wizard Fashions

In the invitation delivered by Owl Post, McGonagall's accompanying letter advised that "since the surrounding area is well-protected by Memory Charms, it will be safe to wear normal wizard attire, but if you miss the Hogwarts Express or are unable to Apparate and must come incognito by way of Muggle transportation, feel free to arrive dressed in the Muggle manner." Many guests got wonderfully into the spirit and came in "costume" and they are included in this gallery...for the Muggles, you'll have to look for them in the Webcam Highlights or the Party Photos pages, since they're not wearing Wizard Fashions. ;-)
