One of the foulest creatures in the Harry Potter universe are Dementors. They thrive in dark, filthy places filled with decay and despair. They feed by draining people of hope, peace, and happiness. Getting close to a Dementor means feeling as though you will never be happy again.
As awful as that sounds, there is something even worse that Dementors can do, something called the Dementor's Kiss. The Dementor's Kiss is what it is called when a Dementor sucks out and devours a person's soul.
The result of a kiss from this horrid creature is that it leaves a person in a state of non-existance. The body is still alive but the person is gone forever, and there is no hope of recovery.
Harry Potter and Sirius Black both came very close to having their souls sucked out. Fortunately for them, a future version of Harry was able to save them with a very strong Patronus (thanks to Hermione Granger and her Time Turner).
Dressing as a Dementor is easy enough if you know what to wear, and I've gathered the items needed for you. From the flowing and tattered black robe to a mask and hands, here is everything you need for a Dementor costume.
