If you're a) lazy, b) without a Halloween costume, and c) a fan of Harry Potter, then boy do I have some good news for you: A Harry Potter Hogwarts robe onesie exists in the Muggle world, and it's available for purchase right now. You know what this means, don't you? Not only do you not have to try even a little bit when it comes to putting together your Harry Potter Halloween costume, you also get to have maximum cozy pajama times in a distinctly magical fashion.
HelloGiggles noticed that this magical garment is currently for sale on ThinkGeek.com for the reasonable price of $49.99. (And if you think that price is a little steep, don't forget you are buying a hooded sweatshirt, sweatpants, AND booties, all in one package.) It comes complete with a fake printed tie, shirt, and sweater across the chest, with a House emblem over the wearer's heart. Sadly, only Gryffindor and Slytherin robe onesies are available at this time, leaving us Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff identifying wizards forgotten about, like always. Ugh, what I would give for a little representation, am I right? Just kidding. Representation of women and minorities in media is a serious problem that isn't the same as a fictional wizard house. But still.
Not only is this an amazing piece of merchandise that makes me love capitalism more than I ever thought I would, it also come with an amazing product description on ThinkGeek.com that will make an Harry Potter fan smile. The product description reads,
What do Hogwarts students wear when they're hanging out on the weekend? These loungers, of course! We have to admit, being magically inclined would be really helpful when getting dressed. Clothes have sat in a pile for the last week? No problem. Use a spell to straighten out the wrinkles. Use a spell to instantly dry off when you get out of the shower. Use a spell to remove all the pet hair before you leave the house. Yet more reasons we're sad to be Muggles. Enjoy the magic of this Harry Potter Slytherin Onesie Lounger that's a hoodie, pants, and shoes transmogrified into a single piece of clothing. Even better, this lounger gives the illusion that you're wearing your Slytherin House robes, when you're really in this super-comfy fleece. It'll be our secret. (Note: not protected by the Official Magical Secrets Act.)
Is that or is that not the best product description you've ever read? And no, ThinkGeek is not paying, I just genuinely think this product and product description is really awesome. Who doesn't want to be both repping their Hogwarts house AND magically comfy at the same time?
And like I said, now is the perfect time to buy one of these babies, too, with Halloween right around the corner. You know DIY Harry Potter costume ideas list I put together for y'all? Yeah, forget about all that Goodwill hunting and closet-digging crap. This onesie would make things so much easier.
My only critiques would be to again, get these in Ravenclaw colors. I'm not prepared to go around repping Gryffindor jocks or Slytherin snakes like some kind of phony poser. And second, ThinkGeek, would you consider maybe adding some pet sized onesie robes to your collection? No, I do not actually own a pet this time, but I would just feel a lot more comfortable with this product endorsement with the knowledge that somewhere in the world, dogs and cats were proudly donning their Harry Potter Hogwarts house colors somewhere in the world. I wrote you this flattering article, ThinkGeek, so I think the least you can do for me is crank out some magical pet-sized onesies.
