Custom Harry Potter Wand

Yo, my niece is neck deep in Harry Potter and Pottermore.

She apparently tested into Ravenclaw.

Anyone got tips on good collectors wands. I'd like to get her one for Christmas.

    I saw there was a company selling ash wood dowels that you could whittle down? when I worked at Wal Mart

    There are a LOT of them on Etsy, and it's probably your best bet.

    Noble collection has a lot and theyre all great. They are all canon wands, but the include such well known and iconic characters as "Ravenclaw girl" and "Death Eater #5" so at least some aren't recognizable.

    Edit: eBay also has occasionally had modified Noble wands, carved and repainted to be new. Theyre not as big as repainted superhero figures but they show up sometimes. This is also a direction you can go yourself, some of the bulkier wands like McGonagall's lend themselves well to carving with a dremel.

    Oh that's a great suggestion, thank you both. The Noble collection looks great.

    You could also 3d print and paint it as well. Thought agreed on etsy.
    Unless you wanted to make it for her, then maybe reach out to a makerspace in your area? Or make friends with a wood turner? Or see if there's a woodworking/turners club near you.

    Thread reminded me I wanted to make a few people some wands, so I'll need to get off my butt and do that before December.

    I love the idea of making her something but fuck I don't have the time. I've got an 18 month old of my own.

    Her favorite character is Luna Lovegod so I was thinking getting her Luna's wand and maybe her own custom deal from Etsy. There are some guys on Etsy who seem to take this wandmaking extremely seriously.

    It's actually pretty easy to make a reasonable-looking wand; We did this sort of thing with a chopstick and hot glue and paint, and they worked out nicely.

    I got one from these guys a few years ago, and it is pretty solid.
