Many designers and fashionistas have been inspired by the four Hogwarts houses. One can find many outfits portraying the colors and themes of Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. Realm Beyond Sight posted these fantastic designs.

If you are looking for a stylish dress to wear out on the town while still representing your house at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy then Deviant Artist DistantDreamer has the dresses for you! She has created some great Harry Potter couture dresses inspired by the four Hogwarts houses.

“Couture dresses inspired by the four houses of Hogwarts with heavy inspiration from their mascots. Which dress fits your style? ^_-

Gryffindor – The Lion – You might belong in Gryffindor, Where dwell the brave at heart, Their daring, nerve, and chivalry Set Gryffindors apart

Hufflepuff – The Badger – You might belong in Hufflepuff, Where they are just and loyal, Those patient Hufflepuffs are true And unafraid of toil.

Ravenclaw – The Eagle – Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw, if you’ve a ready mind, Where those of wit and learning, Will always find their kind.

Slytherin – The Serpent – Or perhaps in Slytherin You’ll make your real friends, Those cunning folks use any means To achieve their ends.”

Congratulations to Slytherin for winning the inaugural Pottermore House Cup!  So what does one get for winning the House Cup, aside of from bragging rights?  Something pretty special actually.  Slytherin will gain access to the chapters of The Chamber of Secrets a full 24 hours before anyone else!

From Pottermore Insider

Pottermore has witnessed some frenzied brewing and duelling over the last few days and we’d like to congratulate Slytherin on winning the inaugural Pottermore House Cup.

Commiserations to the other houses, but your chance will come again as competition for the next Pottermore House Cup is already underway!

As part of their reward for winning the Pottermore House Cup, Slytherin will be able to explore the new chapters of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, 24 hours ahead of the other houses.

Please be aware that only students who were in Slytherin when the inaugural Pottermore House Cup was awarded, will get early access.

For students who are not in Slytherin, don’t despair. The first chapters of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets will be available for everyone immediately after this 24-hour period.

From then on, all users will be able to explore the new chapters, discover new Moments and continue their journey on Pottermore.

The kennels, established by Edward VII in 1879 to house 100 dogs, are now home to some 20 gundogs, labradors and cocker spaniels of variety of ages, the Daily Telegraph reported.
