Newt Scamander is the Magizoologist played by Eddie Redmayne who works at the Ministry of Magic. He wrote the book, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, later becoming the standard textbook at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The film is a spinoff of the Harry Potter series created by the one and only J.K. Rowling. The film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was released in November of 2016 as the ninth movie in the Harry Potter series.
You can get the wizard look of Newt with a Newt Scamander Coat, a Newt Scamander Vest, a White Dress Shirt, a Tan Brown 3-piece Tweed Suit, and a pair of James Lace Up Boots. Add to the cosplay by accessorizing with the Newt Scamander Bow Tie, a Newt Scamander Wand, a Vintage Brown Suitcase, a Hufflepuff Knit Scarf, a Brass Binocular, and a Deathly Hallows Pocket Watch.
Most wizards have generally the same styles if they came from the mind of J.K. Rowling, but Newt Scamander is one wizard who always needs to be prepared to face any magical beast. So, to give you the same look and feel of Newt, we have pieced together the most magical look to recreate his costume. Let’s get started with this cosplay!
First, you will want to get your first layer put together. Start with a white dress shirt and a retro tan/brown tweed suit. Throw on a Newt Scamander bow tie which is just a pin striped bow tie. For the outer layer, you will want to grab a Newt Scamander coat that is bright blue. Add a pair of lace up boots, a Hufflepuff scarf, and a vintage brown suitcase to complete the look. Your other accessories should include a wizard’s wand, a brass binocular, and a Deathly Hallows pocket watch. You can throw those in your pockets or carry them for everyone to see so there’s no doubt you are Newt Scamander of the wizarding world! Check out other cosplays for even more ideas, and make sure to submit a picture of your cosplay when you have it completed!
Ever since we got a taste of the wizarding world from J.K. Rowling, we just can’t get enough! Now that Newt Scamander has made it to the movie screen, it gives us a whole new reason to obsess over magic and the world of wizards. Newt Scamander is before Harry Potter’s time, but that doesn’t make him lose any interesting qualities. Newt has a passion for magical creatures, and he too attended the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. After attending school, he joined the Ministry of Magic where he took part in the Beast Division.
Later, Newt wrote the book, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which made him a best-selling author and highly respected in the field of magical creatures. J.K. Rowling brought Newt’s character to life in novel and film after getting everyone hooked on the Harry Potter series. She didn’t disappoint with her next story even though it had nothing to do with Potter’s life.
