Hogwarts Houses: Ravenclaw

Ravenclaw is characterised by the colours blue and bronze, and by an eagle. I always thought their animal should be a raven, but there you go.

Their house motto is 'wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure' because they are known for their intelligence.

The look I created is based on the house colours more than anything else, and I found it quite difficult to think of a flattering look that combined these colours. So I decided to throw in some rhinestones to counteract the possibility of it not being particularly pretty. I love the opportunity to use bright blue, but mixing it with bronze was a challenge. Thankfully I think it turned out OK, though!
