##Putting together your Lucius Malfoy costume##

Step 1: Put on a long, platinum blonde wig of straight hair to achieve Lucius’ aristocratic mane.

Step 2: Put on a high-necked shirt or white dress shirt with the collar turned upwards, folded slightly down and held in place with a brooch.

Step 3: Put on a long black frock coat or black fur coat over your shirt. (If you wish, you can pick up a yard or so of black faux fur fabric and adhere it to the lapels of your coat with fabric glue for an even more darkly regal wizard look like Lucius sports).

Step 4: Pull on a pair of black trousers and lace up a pair of black dress shoes.

Step 5: Add a medallion over the top of your ensemble which will be offset nicely against the stark background of black.

Step 6: Pick up a walking stick or cobra cane with a snake’s head topping it off in silver, the snake being a symbol of both Slytherin house and Voldemort himself!
