So if The Mortal Instruments can get turned into a movie and then get turned into a TV show three years later, I think we can have Harry Potter TV show WITH THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS:

  • Sarcastic, messy-haired Harry with eyes that actually match his mother’s
  • Loyal, brave, smart, AND funny Ron (not comedic relief Ron)
  • Flawed perfectionist Hermione who follows too close to the rules, makes color coded study schedules, drives Ron and Harry up the wall, is sometimes a goody-two shoes, and has some serious insecurities with regard to her academic ability
  • SPEW
  • Peeves
  • Sarcastic, popular, badass Ginny
  • Accurate Marauder era portrayal
  • Neville visiting his parents at St. Mungo’s
  • Harry smashing Dumbledore’s office
  • Winky
  • Kreacher’s full story
  • SPEW because the oppression of house elves in the books is such a huge deal. It was, essentially, what killed Sirius, and the alliance of house elves on both Voldy’s side and Harry’s side made significant impacts on the outcome of the prophecy.
  • Phineas Nigellus
  • “Have a biscuit, Potter.”
  • “There’s no need to call me sir, Professor.”
  • Ginny and Harry bonding over the fact that they’re the only two people who have been possessed by Voldemort.
  • Dumbledore’s full backstory
  • “It unscrews the other way.”
  • Harry disguised as Barny Weasley at the wedding and talking to Viktor Krum about Gregorovitch
  • “Give her hell from us, Peeves.”
  • The brain room in the Department of Mysteries
  • The time room in the Department of Mysteries
  • Blast-ended Skrewts
  • Rita Skeeter being an Animagus
  • Percy’s full story
  • Actually give Fred’s death justice by showing it because FRED AND PERCY
  • All of Tom Riddle’s memories
  • Tonks’s patronus
  • Neville being the potential Chosen One

Feel free to add.

If you know me well, you know I idolize “The Lisas” when it comes to style–Lisa Bonet, Lisa Turtle, and the creator of fluorescent unicorn turds, Lisa Frank.  With that said, you should also know that my favorite accessory is a fly ass leather Unicco Jeans fanny pack and that I also gladly payed for the download of The Best of Cece Peniston. Twice.  That’s right folks…I’m an 80’s baby and couldn’t be more proud!  Which is why I had to share the gem that is KOKOROKOKO with all of you!  

About 2 weeks ago on a random Tuesday off, I was out exploring my new ‘hood and just happened to step into this awesome 80’s and 90’s-inspired independent boutique.  KOKOROKOKO had me drooling over their racks of affordably-priced polka-dotted minis, Bart Simpson tees, ALF dolls, and Jodeci boots until I couldn’t contain myself anymore!  After pouting because I couldn’t buy the whole store, I came home and looked up the boutique and found rave reviews–including their recent achievement: Chicago Reader’s “Best Place to Retro-fy Your Wardrobe.”  They’ve also recently been featured in Lucky Magazine and named as one of Time Out Chicago’s “Top Ten Vintage Stores.”  I didn’t need all of those credentials to sell me because I had already fallen in love when I saw the Salt & Pepa vinyls near the door!  Even if you’ve retired your Fresh Prince of Bel-Air fashion sense, just visiting this place will make you feel like you’ve found the fountain of youth!

Check out the store’s blog above and also keep an eye out for them at the next Vintage Bazaar on September 18th at the Congress Theater.
