Return of the Look: Gryffindor (Harry Potter)

"You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve and chivalry
    Set Gryffindors apart
" -Sorting Hat

After Ravenclaw, Gryffindor would be my next pick for a house at Hogwarts. Gryffindor is the most memorable house because most of the characters from Harry Potter that we came to know and love were from this house. I personally love the Weasley family (Weasley twins FTW!) so I have to love Gryffindor! By the way, for those of you who are not familiar with my "Return of the Look" series, it is a series where I redo looks I did in the past. Well, this is a redo of my Gryffindor look that I did a while ago.

Keep reading more for a pictorial!
