Hot Fancy Dress Trends for 2011

(PRWeb UK) February 11, 2011

All Fancy Dress has recently announced that 2011 will be the year for fancy dress as business levels have risen dramatically; fuelling expectations that interest in fancy dress costumes will continue to rise.

Book Day Costumes are also seeing an increase in interest as the event will be hosted early in the next month. Fictional characters such as Harry Potter and folklore characters like Robin Hood are becoming increasingly popular with children and are set to become some of the biggest trend setters for Book Day.

Another big trend that has also been spotted for 2011 is gangster fancy dress. It has always been a popular theme, but in recent sales activities the demand for such costumes has grown. With inspiration from the likes of Al Capone, Vito Corleone and Tony Montana these gangster costumes are signalling gangster fancy dress could be one of the biggest trends of them all.

Matt Foden of All Fancy Dress commented: ?People find inspiration for dressing up from many different sources, whether its comic books, the movies, history or some of the more traditional themes. Gangster costumes are particularly popular at the moment, perhaps because people like the sense of power and bravado such characters lend them.?

Article by NetwebsiteDOTIn

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 is an upcoming 2011 epic fantasy film directed by David Yates and the second of two films based on the novel of the same name by J. K. Rowling. It is the eighth and final instalment in the Harry Potter film series, written by Steve Kloves and produced by David Heyman, David Barron and Rowling. The story continues to follow Harry Potter on a quest to find and destroy Lord Voldemort’s remaining Horcruxes. The film stars Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, alongside Rupert Grint and Emma Watson as Harry’s best friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. The supporting cast features Ralph Fiennes, Michael Gambon, Alan Rickman, Helena Bonham Carter and Maggie Smith.

Principal photography began on 19 February 2009 (2009-02-19) and was completed on 12 June 2010 (2010-06-12), with the final day of reshoots taking place on 21 December 2010 marking the series’ closure of ten years of filming. Part 2 will be released in 3D, along with 2D formats, in IMAX on 15 July 2011 (2011-07-15).

After destroying one Horcrux and discovering the significance of the three Deathly Hallows, Harry, Ron, and Hermione continue to seek Lord Voldemort’s remaining Horcruxes in an attempt to destroy him. Meanwhile, Voldemort has obtained the as of yet unbeatable Elder Wand, and he aims to complete his final stage to ultimate power. He launches an attack on Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in an effort to bring Harry to the final battle against the Dark forces that threaten to take over the Wizarding and Muggle worlds. In the end, the final battle between Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort takes place at Hogwarrts, when they fall of the edge of a cliff, and Harry says “It’s going to end where we both started” and he holds on to Voldemort as they fall, they land to the ground and start fighting.

In an interview with Architectural Digest, production designer Stuart Craig remarked on creating sets for Part 2. On the Gringotts Wizarding Bank, he said, “our banking hall, like any other, is made of marble and big marble columns. And it has great strength. The fact that the goblins are the bankers and tellers at the counter helps that feeling of grandeur and solidity and the big proportions. That was part of the fun of the set: we exaggerated the size of it, we exaggerated the weight of it, and we even exaggerated the shine of the marble.” About the multiplication of treasure in one of the bank’s vaults, he noted, “We made literally thousands of pieces for it and vacuum metalized them to be shiny gold and silver. John Richardson, the special effects supervisor, made a floor that was capable of rising on different levels, so there was kind of a physical swelling of theCraig spoke about the Battle of Hogwarts to Art Insights Magazine, saying that “the great challenge is the destruction of Hogwarts. The sun rising behind the smoke … the massive remains of destroyed walls, the entrance hall, the entrance of the Great Hall, part of the roof of the Great Hall completely gone, so yeah. A big challenge there and an enjoyable one really – maybe it helped me and the guys in the art department sort of prepare for the end … we demolished it before we had to strike it completely.” When asked about the King’s Cross scene near the end of the film, Craig said, “We experimented a lot, quite honestly. I mean it was quite a protracted process really but we did experiment the sense of it being very burnt out very very kind of white – so we experimented with underlit floors, we experimented with different kind of white covering everything: white paint, white fabric, and the cameraman was involved in how much to expose it, and a series of camera tests were done, so we got there but with a great deal of preparation and research.”

Visual effects companies that worked on Part 1 (including Double Negative and Industrial Light & Magic) also worked on the visuals for Part 2. Visual Effects Supervisor Tim Burke said that “It was such a major job to stage the Battle of Hogwarts, and we had to do it in different stages of production. We had shots with complex linking camera moves from wide overviews, to flying into windows and interior spaces. So, we took the plunge at the end of 2008 and started rebuilding the school digitally with Double Negative.” He went on to say that “It’s taken two years – getting renders out, texturing every facet of the building, constructing interiors to see through windows, building a destruction version of the school. We can design shots with the knowledge that we have this brilliant digital miniature that we can do anything with. With a practical Hogwarts, we would have shot it last summer and been so tied down. Instead, as David Yates finds the flow and structure, we are able to handle new concepts and ideas.”

On the quality of 3D in film, Burke told Los Angeles Times, “I think it’s good, actually. I think people are going to be really pleased. I know everyone’s a little nervous and skeptical of 3-D these days, but the work has been done very, very well. We’ve done over 200 shots in 3D and in the visual effects as well, because so much of it is CG, so the results are very, very good. I think everyone’s going to be really impressed with it, actually.” Producer David Heyman spoke to SFX magazine about the 3D conversion, saying that “The way David Yates is approaching 3D is he’s trying to approach it from a character and story point of view. Trying to use the sense of isolation, of separation that sometimes 3D gives you, to heighten that at appropriate moments. So we’re approaching it in a storytelling way.To View The Full HD free_movies_online_for_free

The Harry Potter book series

If you haven’t heard about Harry Potter, where have you been hiding?  Harry Potter is a character created by the brilliant writer J.K.Rowling, and first came known to us in 1997. 7 books later and with nearly 500 million copies sold, there must be something pretty special about them.  Each book became a major film production which all broke box office records and the books were translated into 67 different languages. The seven books are titled Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows.

So for those who have been in a coma for the past 14 years or have lived under a stone,  the series is about a young wizard named Harry Potter.  Sadly the story begins in his home where he is an orphan and lives with his Aunt and Uncle in a cupboard under their stairs.

He is treated pretty badly and life isnt great for the young harry.  His life takes serious change when he finds out his is a wizard and attends the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to learn how to use magic.

With two great friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, Harry encounters lots of adventure with some fabulous mythical creatures like dragons, trolls, werewolves, and to name just a few. It isn’t long before Harry learns that is he quite a famous wizard and the is the key to defeating the most powerful dark wizard Lord Voldemort.  He learns that Lord Voldemort was responsible for the death of his parents because they didn’t wasn’t to use their magic for evil. At the time he tried to kill Harry but he failed leaving him with a lightening scar on his forehead.

The first movie Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone or Sorcerer’s Stone, viewers get completely drawn into the world of wizardry.  The Hogwarts school itself is an amazing spectacle.  The rooms tend to move around as do the stairs including the grand staircase. The pictures on the wall are like little movies as they move and talk to you. To get to the Hogwarts school you need to take the Hogwarts express which is boarded from Platform 9¾ at King’s Cross station in London.

The Harry Potter book series is enjoyed by people of all ages around the world.  There is pretty much every type of merchandise available and even movie location tours.  Also a popular theme park attraction opened up at Universal Orlando in the spring of 2010.
