Since the beginning of the year, the short video app TikTok exploded. The app allows users to create short and creative entertainment videos and share them on the app.
And in the middle of hundreds of thousands of videos, you are bound to see Harry Potter fans creating some wizarding inspired videos. Like with Tom Felton’s “Pottah challenge”, some TikTokers have created video trends based on their love for the Harry Potter saga.
A TikToker named @soupytime is an example of that. She posted a video on her TikTok page called “outfits inspired by Harry Potter characters” where with some great video editing she changes outfits to match what each Harry Potter characters would dress such as Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Harry Potter, Draco Malfoy, Ginny Weasley, and much more.
you guys have NO IDEA how long this took #harrypotter
She also created the mashup sound that went with the video. The base of the sound is a scene from Professor Lupin’s Defense Against the Dark Arts in the movie “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”. The audio from that Harry Potter movie scene was a perfect choice since, in the movie, Professor Lupin is teaching Hogwarts wizards and witches how to defend themselves against a Boggart; a creature that can shift into the thing you fear the most.
Makes sense, right? Since she is changing, or “shifting”, from character to character, the audio is very fitting. On top of the main audio piece, she added the audio of all the different characters that she uses as voice-over when she dresses like them.
Her TikTok video was such a hit that over 23.4K videos on the platform have used her audio. Currently, her Harry Potter outfit video has over 34.9 million views on the platform. But, that isn’t all.
The TikToker made a part 2 of her Harry Potter outfit video, but this time, a Hogwarts teachers edition.
don’t come at me for flitwick erasure, ok? #harrypotter
The teacher’s edition follows the same pattern as the first video but featuring inspired outfits and Harry Potter movie audios from characters like Rubeus Hagrid, Remus Lupin, Severus Snape, Alastor “Mad-Eye” Moody, Minerva McGonagall, Dumbledore and others.
