The Warner Bros Studio Tour in Watford is already an essential destination for any dedicated Harry Potter fan, but if you're in need of an excuse to re-visit this summer, the new 'Wizarding Wardrobes' costume exhibit is just that.

Coming this summer, this new addition to the studio tour will take fans on a journey through the intricate design processes that brought the costumes, hair and make-up effects of JK Rowling's wizarding world to life, from initial sketches to the instantly memorable end results.

Joining the costumes already on display will be the pale blue uniforms worn by Beauxbatons students (including Clemence Poesy's Fleur Delacouer) in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which featured hats designed by fashion's favourite milliner, Philip Treacy, as well as the 1940s-inspired outfits worn by malicious gossip columnist Rita Skeeter (Miranda Richardson) in the same film and costumes worn by Hogwarts professors Lupin, Umbridge and Lockhart.

Over 10 years of filming and eight feature films, more than 25,000 unique pieces of clothing were created especially for the Harry Potter series, including a staggering 600 sets of Hogwarts robes to kit out Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson and numerous extras.

The exhibit will also explore how costumes were realistically distressed before appearing on screen, made to look centuries old or battle-worn.

The Wizarding Wardrobes exhibit will run from Friday July 21st until Monday September 4th at the Warner Brothers Studio Tour.
