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.
On a dark, haunted night, a Russian oligarch dares a circle of international chefs to play the samurai game of 100 Candles--where each storyteller spins a terrifying tale of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings--and prays to survive the challenge.
Inspired by the Japanese Edo period game of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai, Hungry Ghosts reimagines the classic stories of yokai, yorei, and obake, all tainted with the common thread of food.
First course: With bad consequence, a ramen chef refuses to help a beggar, and a band of pirates get more (and less) than they were bargaining for after their encounter with a drowning woman turns ghastly.
Hungry Ghosts is cooked up by the infamous author and chef, Anthony Bourdain (Kitchen Confidential, Emmy-Award winning TV star of Parts Unknown) and acclaimed novelist Joel Rose (Kill, Kill, Faster, Faster, back again from their New York Times #1 best seller, Get Jiro!). Joining them this issue are stellar artists Alberto Ponticelli and Vanesa Del Rey, with amazing color by Jose Villarrubia, and a drop-dead cover by Paul Pope
