Harry Potter but more nineties...

The Harry Potter was largely set in the nineties, right? I know that there are a few references to nineties fashion (Lavender Brown’s ornamental butterfly hair clip for example) but it could be a lot more nineties…

-Harry not looking that out of place in his baggy jeans and jumper in his later years of primary school because it was the early 90s and every kid wanted to dress like The Stone Roses

For non-Brits, that’s this lot…

-Dudley playing loud Acidhouse tunes out of his boom-box

-Dean loving the heck out of Oasis and Blur in the mid-nineties, and introduces Ron to both bands. Ron prefers Oasis, and ends up copying Noel Gallagher’s haircut

-Hermione dressing a little like Julia Roberts in her muggle clothing, but trying out a little black choker in her sixth year for a bit. It wasn’t really her thing.

-Lavender and Parvati putting up posters of Take That in their dormitory, and singing all the songs so much that Hermione puts a silencing charm on both of them until they agree to stop singing after 10 o’clock

My eyes, THEY BURN!…

-Tonks dressing in a mix between Riot Grrrl and Elastica, and giving Ginny a pair of her old Doc Martins to wear

-Michael Corner and the Ravenclaw boys being enormous fans of Kurt Cobain during their first few years at Hogwarts. In their last few years at Hogwarts, they got into Radiohead.

-All the Muggle-born students being very confused as to why Professor Lockhart looks like the guy from that ‘Henry the fifth’ film their parents made them watch.

That would be very confusing…
