Question by Kait: How do you change which books you have read and what movies you have seen on Pottermore?
I wasn’t aware that Pottermore was having early access registration, so my sister’s friend made one for me, then sent me the user name and password. I have been playing on Pottermore for the past couple of days and noticed that my sister’s friend put that I hadn’t seen the movies or read the book, but I have seen all the movies and read all the books. How do I change that?

Harry Potter Costumes Make Your Halloween Magical

J.K. Rowling took the world by storm with the Harry Potter series. This Halloween, you can enjoy the mystical world of Hogwarts and Quidditch with a Harry Potter Halloween costume. There are costumes for both children and adults, so there is sure to be something you love.

We have all been there, getting completely caught up in a world of enchantment with Harry and Hermione. We have spent countless hours reading every Harry Potter book that J.K Rowling sets before our eyes, reading on and on because we are just so captivated with how her story comes to life. Her powerful tale of young boy who dearly misses his parents has touched the lives of so many people in this world. With a story loved by so many, it is no wonder that Potter has become one of the latest crazes out there today.

Adult Harry Potter Robe has gryffindor emblem & clasp.

Obviously, if you decide to see what it’s like to live in Harry’s shoes for an evening, you’ll need those perfectly round framed glasses (check your local drugstore for the proper style reading glasses, and just snap the lenses out, or pick up a pair at any costume shop) and that famous lightning bolt shaped scar (a bit of make-up will work, or you can really make it stand out by purchasing a theatrical make-up kit, which should also be available at your local drugstore).


Naturally, you would want to be Harry. After all, being the Chosen One comes with a lot of perks. But there are several Harry Potter costume ideas to choose from. First is the long, black Gryffindor robe that you can buy in adult and children’s sizes. The Gryffindor robe is the most basic thing you will need. In fact, you are sure to recreate any character from the Gryffindor house with the robe at hand. You just have to dye your hair red if you want to be one of the Weasleys or rumple your hair to make it big if you want to be Hermione.

Hooded robe with attached shirtfront and mask. Just like the Harry Potter movies.

Considering the popularity, it is most likely that you would find Ron and Hermoine, or even a Dumbldore and Voldermort too somewhere in the Halloween party. You can initiate your mini club of Harry Potter buffs, and play your characters throughout. Do refresh your knowledge from the book, so that no matter what, you remain the undisputed Harry fan.

Of course, you can also portray Harry in his crimson Quidditch robes and a number of necessary accessories to complete the look. The officially-licensed Quidditch costume looks exactly like Harry’s robe in the movie, long and flowing with an attached hood and yellow stripes on the sleeves. The Gryffindor house crest is emblazoned on the left chest. If you really want to be the ultra-talented Gryffindor Quidditch team captain, make sure you also get a broom and a Quidditch helmet for your child.

Do not forget to polish your school shoes. While Harry will wear grey trousers, Ginny will wear a grey skirt. Having a wand along just completes the look of your Halloween costumes design.

Tribute To Nataraja; Lord Shiva

Dance, highly popular in todays times, has its roots in the ancient times. Fortunately, it has been preserved till today in The Cosmic Dance of Shiva at Chidambaram Temple. The name Chidambaram itself is associated with Nataraj or Lord Shiva in his famous pose Ananda Tandava. This pose is an emblem for all the worshippers of dance all around the world. In addition to that, the word Koyil in the Tamil Saivite Tradition refers to this famous temple only.

Each pose no matter how contemporary or ancient it is has a special significance to it. Different people have different perceptions to it but there is always something behind the surface. The ancient dance of bliss (The Cosmic Dance of Shiva) symbolises five divine acts i.e. Creation, Sustenance, Dissolution, Concealment and Bestowment of grace. If we take a close look, these things are the foundation of the human life.

The dance of Shiva is no more just another pose of the dance form. This pose, frozen in the metal is worshipped in the Nataraja Sabhas observed in all the Saivite temples of Tamil Nadu. You can experience this heavenly aura once you decide to take the South India temple tour. Other sabhas include Pancha Sabhai, Kanaka Sabhai, Rajata Sabhai, Ratna Sabhai, Tamra Sabhai and Chitra Sabhai. This dance form of Shiva is worshipped till today and no one could come even near to this dance form. The dance performances are commenced with a dance performance of this form as a tribute paid to the form of dance itself.

You will be glad to know that Lord Shiva is more spontaneous than this. He is also worshipped in the formless form i.e. Chidambara Rahasyam. This temple is known for its Aakasa Lingam which represents Lord Shiva as formless space. These phrases may sound odd to the lay man but the artistic minds are well aware of its deepness.

In most of the India tour packages, there is something to see and learn from. This temple is special because it bears special importance to the dance forms. All of us have this spiritual element in us. The degree may vary but in our lifetime, we do dance, it may be just few here and there of footsteps. This inner element in all of us is exteriorised beautifully by Lord Shiva. It is worth extolling and there should be no hesitation in doing that. Only when you learn appreciating others, some else will appreciate you. So, be ready…to appreciate and be appreciated in return.
