Hear our new Moaning Myrtles song in the video of our live performance I just posted on youtube.com/laurenfairweather 🎶 It’s about Myrtle’s scene in #harrypotterandthecursedchild and that time JK Rowling accidentally named her after Elizabeth Warren. We had so much fun reuniting for the Yule Ball shows and I’m so glad we finished the song in time for them!
I’ve been busy! A very limited amount of each of these plushie designs are now available again in my etsy shop.

Here's a photo with @harryandthepotters that we took tonight after an incredible weekend of Yule Ball concerts performing as The Moaning Myrtles, compared to the last photos the two of us took with them (2005). • Fun fact: We took those older photos the day before we started The Moaning Myrtles. These guys and their enthusiasm and creativity changed our lives.
Backstage at the Yule Ball with my pals, the puppets. ✨

Loving the Brooklyn Yule Ball so far! I got to see my sister and a bunch of wonderful friends including these Weasley twin doppelgängers, @jeffreywest and @jeremyswest!
The Moaning Myrtles, reunited! We're ready to perform at the D.C. Yule Ball. We'll be in NYC tomorrow and Boston on Sunday! ⚡️
Why do wizards even bother having locks if any 11-year-old can just open them with this spell? 🔑Learn how to make this metal stamped keychain (which you could customize to say anything, but naturally, I stamped mine with all sorts of Harry Potter inspired phrases) in my newest tutorial video, which is sponsored by @impressart! You can watch it at youtube.com/laurenfairweather or click the link in my bio. Which phrase would you stamp on your keychain?
Myrtle is almost ready for the Yule Ball this weekend, hand-stitched Ravenclaw Peter Pan collar and all!

This morning, I helped my son work on an art project! I am so excited that my little pal wants to make stuff as much as I do. • Thank you to @lovepipsticks for sending us a kids sticker pack to test out! He had a great time sticking them onto some paper and he kept taking the finished pages down to show to his dad. The trucks and emojis are his favorites so far (and I may have snagged a few sheets for myself because they were so cute). 🎨
