hHagrid is one of my favorite Harry Potter characters and definitely in my top three. He’s one of the first we are introduced to alongside Dumbledore, Professor McGonagoll and Harry in the first ever scenes on Privet Drive. Further along he is the first person to tells Harry who he actually is, a wizard!
It’s at this first encounter that Hagrid gives Harry’s cousin Dudley a pigs tail for eating some of Harry’s birthday cake, he does this using not a wand but a magical pink umbrella.
Interestingly I read an interview with J. K. Rowling where she was asked how Petunia and Vernon explained the tail to doctors and she said they explained it away as a wart that had gotten out of control.
If you want a similar umbrella to the one Hagrid uses in this and other scenes or if you’re creating your own Hagrid Halloween costume this year then check out the umbrella pictured that has a similar ruffled design.Buy Now
