SORTING HAT NOT INCLUDED

What you wear on the first day of school is a big deal. How you look might set the tone for your entire school year (second only to your class schedule). Do you have the right backpack? Are your clothes on trend? Are you – gulp – wearing the same shirt as someone else?

Luckily, things were a bit different for the young witches and wizards of Hogwarts as they walked into school for the beginning of each new year. Hogwarts’s uniform was a plain black robe with no marks, colors, or crests, designed to make each student equal (but it’s hard to hide a lightning bolt on your forehead). Recreate the look with this Harry Potter Replica House Robe. This full-length, adult-size replica robe has a lining, hood, clasp, and a house crest on the chest.

Minecraft Light-Up Enchanted Apple

Consider yourself lucky that you don’t have to craft an Enchanted Apple yourself. It used to take 648 Gold Nuggets just to make one of these, but now you just have to be fortunate enough to come across one. That’s a lot of patience for Absorption IV, Regeneration II, Resistance, and a Fire Resistance buff. But it’s worth it for the ability to take a stroll through some lava.
