Just to add to what Necromancer said :
there are books published about the "mythological sources" that Rowling uses : "the sorcerer's companion" is a good example, as is the science of H.P."... Although some might argue that the novels are for kids (which they're not) , these two books undoubtedly can be a great source of inspiration for the bizarrist...
And Baba, I just KNEW you would change your mind quickly Smile . Sorry, bro... That was not what I meant...

Let it not be forgotten that as a youngster I watched Scooby Doo, the Addams Family etc. and they all helped inspire me to develop an interest in the bizarre. So possibly the same will be true of Harry Potter.

Wand wise, check out mine on my websites.

Anyone that actually wants one of these style wands should check out the Magic Juggler Shop here in ABQ. The url is http://www.magicjugglershop.com and they have a good amount of handmade, one of a kind wands that look like they came out of this movie. I don't know if they're listed on the site, but you can email the owner and have him send you some pictures and prices. They are very nice and all made from different woods and have different designs.
Yes, that is my real name. Yes, I am a real person. No, you probably won't agree with me.

Why not just make your own: find a phoenix, get a tailfeather, the rest is a cakewalk.

Jim Gerrish, as an owner of Losander's Dancing Broom I would like to know how to contact the link you privide about whether they have permission to duplicate his copyrighted broom. They don't provide contact info on the site that I can find.

If not, I will be passing the information on to Losander.

It's not Jim Gerrish's site that has the Dancing Broom effect, it's mine. A broom is not subject to copyright... just the instructions written for the effect. The original Dancing Cane was invented by Hofzinser, Johann (1806-1875). The Dancing Cane as we know it today was popularized during the ninteen-fifties and sixties. I started doing the Dancing Broom in 1964 when I began my Wizard Magic transformation and long before Harry Potter was conceived. I performed it to a segment of Paul Dukas' Sorcerer's Apprentice. In 1998, after the first Harry Potter book was published, I dusted off the routine and redesigned it around the idea of actually flying on the broom, rather than just dancing with it. The copyright on my routine dates from 1998. I doubt if Losander's routine is anything like mine, but feel free to contact him and if he feels it is necessary, we can compare notes to see if there is any copyright infringement and who has prior rights.

Thanks for bringing my attention to the missing contact information on the Web page. It used to be at the bottom of every Web Page but in the last overhaul of the Web site, it inadvertantly got erased from some pages. It's back in place now.

O.K. I am going to tip the secret of the "Harry Potter" wands.

Step 1: Learn how to do the common whipping (Rope tying technique)
Step 2: Get a gnarly but straight-ish 10-12" twig end
Step 3: Use some hemp rope or other natural looking fiber and tie a common whipping to the thick end of the twig end (Approx 4-6").

This is what a "Harry Potter" wand is.




As an aside. There are no real unicorns or phoenix.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

Now see what you've done? The Ministry of Magic is going to "get you" for revealing secrets on a public forum. Especially the ones about unicorns and phoenixes.

I have just received my owl this morning. No Hogwarts this year for me. I will have to sit in the Leaky Cauldron with Hagrid and reminisce about the old times.

I will probably have to join you in the Leaky Cauldron. It looks like Euangelion is "out to get me" for not "prividing" a contact link for Spellbinder's site, even though it's posted all over the place. I think he's going to "tell" on me.

You can show me how to whip a Potter wand. The idea sounds better than Spellbinder's use of moulding compound, although the results won't be as elegant. I also like the "earthy" look of a twine-tied wand. Do you suppose we can hand tie a dancing broom, if Evangelion and Losander don't mind?

Feh.

Last time I was in Phoenix, I picked up a feather. I have a real Phoenix feather.
