Black Milk’s Harry Potter Line Is Almost As Good As Getting Accepted To Hogwarts



[View All on One Page]

On sale in just a few hours is Black Milk’s long-awaited Harry Potter collection. I’ve been tempted in the past by their offerings, specifically the many geek licenses they’ve picked up recently but this is the first time I’ll be reaching in my wallet. Unlike most of their past collections, Black Milk’s Harry Potter line features more than just images from the films on leggings, swimsuits and more. Take a look at what they have to offer this time around.

    I hope one doesn’t need to be that skinny and stoned (or are those models just bored stupid?) to wear this collection.

    Ummm, what’s with the middle school meanness?

  • http://www.thenerdybird.com/ Jill Pantozzi

    Please do not make comments about the physical appearance of the models.

  • Rebecca Pahle

    Just because they’re models doesn’t mean you get to be nasty about their physical appearance.

  • LifeLessons

    HI. I think I understand where you are coming from Bexley. The models look great, the clothes look great, and I hope they have something in my size. :)

    Why does the Weasley bathing suit have an orange crotch? Is that fashion now? Is that the hipster fad?

  • Anonymous

    Do they have anything for us…manly…yes, MAN-LY men?

  • Sara Clemens

    That Weasleys’ Weather in a Bottle t-shirt dress is super cute! I like how it’s a little more subtly geeky and doesn’t just scream “Harry Potter.” Not that I’m above rocking the eff out of those Slytherin leggings.

    Because I will. I will rock them.

  • Sara Clemens

    I don’t think it does and it’s just some weirdness with the picture.

    HOWEVER. Would a fire crotch in a Weasley specific bathing suit be the most appropriately inappropriate thing in the history of ever or what?!

  • http://www.thenerdybird.com/ Jill Pantozzi

    On their facebook page I saw two guys wearing the undesirable #1 shirt.

  • Anonymous

    While I’m a bit weirded out by the lack of pants in the pictures with shirts (Hogwarts has no pants, Hogwarts needs no pants?), I’m really digging the jersey-style ones. Wishing I had several sets of these for a HP themed party. hmm……

    I’m not normally a Harry Potty apparel kind of person, but that Weasley’s Weather in a Bottle design is just cool!

  • http://www.justplainsomething.com JustPlainSomething

    Nothing against leotards, but that’s a lot of leotards. Or swimsuits?

  • http://www.justplainsomething.com JustPlainSomething

    Especially with the girl riding the broom. Two words: wind chaffing.

  • Anonymous

    That orange crotch is the ms pacman thingy when pics load.

  • http://www.thenerdybird.com/ Jill Pantozzi

    They’re technically swimsuits but I know a lot of women who wear them out with skirts or pants over them.

  • Anonymous

    I hate all of these. What the hell.

  • DarthRachel

    those two guys are the designers! and there are def guys who wear black milk! to start: http://sharkiemen.tumblr.com/

  • Eisen

    on the first look I thought her legs where tatooed. Guess from far away it will turn some heads.

  • Eisen

    I don’t get why they look stoned to you. For me it looks like they had quite fun with the shooting.

  • Anonymous

    These cuts are all super unflattering to my figure.

  • Cranium Rinse

    oop, looks like you’re right. Thank god.

  • Cranium Rinse

    Not the most inappropriate thing ever, but pretty tacky, nonetheless.

  • http://anna.balasi.com/ AnnaB

    Love the cut of the Hedwig dress, adore the design of the Weasley’s Weather in a bottle, and would love to rock the Wanted outfit. But I admit–I find those tights hella intimidating.

  • Elizabeth Suess

    Can’t they use a more diverse set of models? I have nothing against being a model, but it would be really nice to see the clothes on someone with a figure *other* than stick skinny. I’m hesitant to buy anything because I have no idea how they would look on someone built like me.

    Although…I am really REALLY tempted by that Weasley Weather dress!

  • Anonymous

    Haha. Love how all the models are posing: I’m looking at a map, thinking about absolutely nothing. Cause you can’t have women looking smart when trying to sell clothes. Impossible!

  • Eisen

    I think it looks neat because of that! How cool would be a marauders map tattoo? :>

  • Iqeret

    Meh. The only thing I actually like is the Sorting Hat and robe, which aren’t (I assume) part of the collection. I get the impression that they have 1/2 bits of clothing and then they slap graphics on them until they get something that works. Then rinse and repeat.

    i was thinking the very same thing until i got the the sirius black girl, then i just didn’t get enough bloodflow to my brain to think of anything, really.

  • Anonymous

    definitely that, and definitely chuckle-worthy when she’s munching as the page loads.

  • Nat

    leggings =/= pants and shouldn’t even be CONSIDERED to be pants. Really disappointed with the lack of diversity of the cuts for this line. I was so excited too.

  • Anonymous

    man Black Milk, consider making some dresses that aren’t butt-cheek length and might look good on a pear-shaped lady. Please.

  • http://www.thenerdybird.com/ Jill Pantozzi

    I disagree wholeheartedly. Leggings are totally pants. They aren’t see-through, just tight. They’re pants without pockets!

  • Nat

    I gotta respectively disagree. I mean, I wear leggings under dresses/skirts because I have a thing about covering my legs. I can understand if you wear like those super long shirts with them? But the whole regular sized shirt and leggings are just… not something I think looks good on anyone in public (I remember walking through LAX and just seeing people who did not look very put together). But if you feel comfortable in them that’s you and I have nothing against that. I just mean personal taste.

  • Anonymous

    You guys are missing the cutest pieces! The inside/outside Marauder’s Map dresses. WANT.

  • BatiHoney

    I really liked most of these. Then I saw the prices and decided I didn’t like them as much anymore. Nothing goes lower than $60, and $85 for a pair of leggins? Come onnnnn :cccc

    Also I don’t what’s everyone talking about, the models look gorgeous and they are doing their job, which is modelling. I agree that they should throw models with different body types into the mix, tho.

  • Amanda Burke

    Black Milk constantly makes me wish I was richer and thinner. Mostly richer, though.

  • http://www.thenerdybird.com/ Jill Pantozzi

    Well to that i guess I would just say, just because you don’t like the look doesn’t mean they aren’t pants. :)

  • http://www.thenerdybird.com/ Jill Pantozzi

    I think people forget Black Milk is designer clothing. It costs just as much or less than things like Gucci.

  • http://www.rubyvelour.com/ Ruby Velour

    Considering they’ve added new styles of shirts to their range specifically for this collection, I can’t understand why you’d be disappointed. Until fairly recently all they offered were leggings, swimsuits and super tight dresses/skirts. The new tee’s and jerseys are an awesome addition that are very different to what Black Milk usually offer!

  • http://www.rubyvelour.com/ Ruby Velour

    I was like that at first but they’re not made in sweat shops, in fact everything except their stockings are designed, printed and sewn in Australia (the stockings are produced in Italy). The licensed stuff incurs slightly higher prices because I can only imagine how much they pay for the licensing fees!

  • Guest

    The leggings do look awesome (love the Daily Prophet one!), and I guess they’ve picked models who can just show them off as pieces in their own right; that’s their job! But yeah, if I was wearing them, I’d add a skirt or shorts.

  • Chiara

    The cost is super high, I agree, but the quality is amazing.
    I own a couple of pieces (two pairs of leggings and one dress) and the quality is very satisfying.
    They are also both warm and comfy, which I didn’t expect from a completely syntetic type of fabric.
    That said, I ordered a Ravenclaw shirt now and a pair of N7 leggings, but I don’t think I’ll place many more orders in the future, due to the cost.
    Especially since I am Oversea and I have to add a silly amount of taxes to that…

  • Jen Rock

    Leggings were pants in the ’90s. I see no reason they can’t be pants again.

  • Renee I.

    Realize you are trying to be kind, but just because something stretches doesn’t make it flattering (I’ve tried on their clothes). :)

  • BatiHoney

    Oh, that explains everything! I didn’t forget, I just didn’t know. Thanks!

  • BatiHoney

    I don’t doubt for a second that all of these is super quality, but unless I were very rich, I just can’t see myself spending so much on clothing, you know? I know how much of a pain is to order something overseas, I feel you :(

  • BatiHoney

    I see o: thanks for the info!

  • Mandy

    Trying not to be snarky here but where is the line about what is acceptable to wear as bottoms? Everyone feel free to chime in with opionins here. I’m just curious what people’s thoughts are. If leggings are acceptable to wear alone why not tights? Some tights are opaque some are not. What is the difference? Are the leggings as pants trend only for young thin people? Are they only approriate in casual settings? I’ve just never understood this random trend of anti-pants.

  • Caitlin

    Hm, their size chart lists 49″ for the hip measurement – do you think that would stretch all the way up to 54″?

  • Heather Lynn

    I’m not too impressed, except for the Quidditch jersey. I want that more than I’m willing to admit. (Ravenclaw FTW!)

  • http://taste-is-sweet.livejournal.com/ Aundrea Singer

    Leggings were pants in the 80s, baby. :) With long tee-shirts that covered your butt, or under cut-off or rolled-up jean shorts. And maybe it’s because I first saw leggings and tights worn that way and that way only (you would NEVER have worn them without a long shirt or shorts over!), but I can’t consider them as pants now.

  • Bexley Lister

    Wow, okay, I *wasn’t* trying to be mean about the models themselves, sorry guys. These women are probably all nice, smart people with a healthy body size for their particular genetic makeup. The way the models are presented in some of these pictures, though – the vacant expression on the Slytherin model in the group shots, the puzzled look on the model with the map, the airbrushed thinness, the super short dresses (surely those are t-shirts?) and crop top with side-boob… When I think of the women in HP I think of intelligence, resilience, bravery – Hermione, Molly, Minerva, Ginny, etc. etc. – and I think the same about the fans of HP. They are people who read and play sport and can follow a map. They are people who have varied body shapes and sizes. People who know that not every player on a sports team would have the same number on their jersey. ;-) Why then present clothing for us, the fans, in a way that implies that people who’d wear this would want to look like sex objects without a thought in our heads? For me, this is like the “princess-ification” of the Merida doll. I found it insulting and unnecessary. I’m sorry I offended Mary Sue moderators and readers by making a snarky comment and not stating more clearly what I thought was wrong about this.
