    The earrings
    Hot Topic

    His earrings were the whole reason I ever started watching the anime in the first place. So cute, yet so menacing: what a vibe!

    Hot Topic

    Ofc, nine-year-old me had a huge crush on Hermione, so I probably would have gone to Gryffindor, too. No judgement here, Harry!

    This zip-up jacket is made in Slytherin house colors, there's a house crest on the left chest and the back has a super rad fishtail hem with a drawstring. There's also *three* pockets: two at the hips and a hidden one for your wand. (Seriously: it comes with a wand pocket!)

    The bag
    Hot Topic

    Just remember what you put in it, lest you interrupt class by singing "What's this? What's this?!?"

    It's polyurethane with two zip-closure pockets (the bigger one has another little pocket hidden inside!), and it includes adjustable straps. It's small — 9" x 4 1/2" x 10 1/2" — but that's more than enough space for your keys, phone, wallet, tablet, and umbrella.
