Young Snape and Lily Potter

Inspired by The Prince's Tale sequence from the final Harry Potter film, here are very young Severus Snape and Lily Potter, back when life was happy and James Bloody Potter hadn't messed everything up.

Lily is wearing a simple blue dress with a purple trim. Severus is wearing an ill-fitting jacket (see, it was intentional, not just bad knitting), a cream shirt with tiny buttons, and navy jeans. In the film, if you look very carefully, you can see that he is wearing the classic misfit footwear combo of socks and sandals. I'm glad he didn't carry this look into his adult life. It was too hard to knit microscopic socks and sandals so he just has black shoes.

These two dolls are teeny tiny, compared to my usual 14 inch adult figures. They are around 9 inches tall, so they should be in scale with the adults.

These two youngsters were a special order for an Etsy customer, but if you'd like these for your collection, drop me a line.

Snape treasury

Excellent Snape treasury on Etsy curated by Sharon (who has a very Snape friendly Etsy store). Thanks for including knitted Severus Snape: you are awarded ten house points.

Lots to love in this treasury, but my favourite is Quacked's Severus Snape plush keyring. He looks like he has seen something really hideous (Lily snogging James, probs) and is hiding inside his robes.
