Local Artist Creates (and Sells) Custom Harry Potter Wands!
Artist Jon Kilgore wants to make your Pottermore wand a reality!
In the world of Harry Potter, wands are one of the most unique and awesome accessories a wizard or witch has. For one local artist, it's become a fun business venture. Jon Kilgore started making wands for fun but quickly realized that people were willing to pay to have their wand come to life. When asked about how he got into it, Kilgore had this to say:
"I made six wands for me and my best friends for Christmas after we all discovered our wands on Pottermore. The following week I had the original six done and it got me thinking about making more wands for people. Making them unique and one at a time either based on their Pottermore measurements or their personality."
As opposed to just duplicating wands from the Harry Potter movies, Jon creates custom wands based on what you are assigned on the super-popular (and official) Harry Potter website Pottermore. Because he isn't restrained to making a perfect copy or replica of an already existing wand, his artistry can shine!
At this point, you should be yelling "HOW CAN I GET ONE OF THESE?!" Jon has a new website where he is taking orders. You can place your order here. Custom wands start at just $15, which is a MAGICAL price (What? You thought I wouldn't make at least one terrible pun?).
Jon was nice enough to create a wand for me. Here is a pic of this incredible piece:
And here is my sad attempt at a "Cool Wand Pose":
You don't want to be the only person that shows up to upcoming Yule Ball without a wand, do you? Let Jon make you the wand you deserve!
