Fleur Delacour Costume

Rochelle March 1, 2016 @ 11:41PM

Fleur Delacour had several distinct outfits that she was seen wearing in the movies. I was able to recreate two of Fleur's looks so you have a couple of options if you want to dress up in a Fleur Delacour costume.

The two outfits that you will find here are the Beauxbatons dress that Fleur wore upon her arrival at Hogwarts for the Triwizard Tournament and the workout outfit that she wore for the final tournament challenge.

I am deeply saddened that neither her Yule Ball gown or her gorgeous wedding gown are available! Fleur's wedding dress was inspired by a wedding gown by designer Alexander McQueen. McQueen has since passed away but I'm amazed that no one associated with his business chose to replicate the dress and make it available to all who want it and are able to buy it.

I was honestly shocked to learn that none of Fleur's outfits have been recreated for the public. Of all the costumes that I have put together to date, Fleur's costume proved to be the most challenging because there are no replicas - with the exception of her hat - and there are very few items that you can use as a substitute. I did my very best to find similar items and hope that they help you recreate Fleur Delacour.

There are two types of product links on this page:

  • Picture Link - If you can click on a picture it will take you directly to that item on a site like Amazon or Etsy. It is possible that the item is no longer available for sale from the seller I have linked the picture to, which is why I created the second type of link.
  • Site Link - When you click on a link to an online store, such as Amazon, eBay, or Etsy, it will take you to that site so you can compare prices for the item seen in the picture. Or, if you are looking at a costume then you might see items similar to the one seen in the picture so you choose the one you like best.

Mandatory Accessories

Wig

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire book described Fleur's hair as such:

"It was the girl from Beauxbatons who had laughed during Dumbledore's speech. She had finally removed her muffler. A long sheet of silvery-blonde hair fell almost to her waist."

Fleur from the books had silvery colored hair, but Fleur in the movies had blonde hair. This means you have a choice to make when it comes to what your hair will look like for your costume. I have included links for both silver and blonde wigs to make it easy for you to find the type of hair you want.

Wand

Fleur's wand was as elegant as she was. Her wand was made from rosewood. Fleur's grandmother, a full Veela, gave a single strand of her hair to Fleur for the core of Fleur's wand. Wand maker Garrick Ollivander stated that wands with Veela hair cores are known to be temperament, but Fleur's wand seemed to work for her at all times.

For those of you who don't know, Veela's are magical creatures that are similar to humans in their appearance, unless they get angry which turns them into hideous Harpy-like creatures. Veela's cast a magical spell on the males around them, who are then irresistibly drawn to the Veelas. Very few men can resist the lure of a Veela, though we saw in the fourth book that Arthur Weasley seemed able to do so.

Folk lore about Veelas says that they will die or change into a form that no longer looks human. We don't know if Fleur's grandmother died after giving a strand of her hair to Fleur, but I suspect that her hair was not plucked, but instead fell from her head on its own accord, as hair so often does.

Beauxbatons Uniform

Replica Dress

I was unable to find a replica of Fleur's Beauxbatons uniform dress at the time that I wrote this, which might make you wonder why I included links to a dress that I couldn't find. Well, I am ever the optimist and hope that someone, someday, will start selling it. There are many creative people who are clever enough to make an exact copy of Fleur's school uniform, so hopefully you will get lucky and find her dress on one of the links below.

Blue Hat

To the best of my knowledge, Etsy is the only website selling Beauxbatons hats. The hats are blue, like the rest of the school uniforms, and have a very unique look to them. The brim is rolled up and is at a slant, giving the hat a rather jaunty look. The hat itself is very round and comes to a gentle point on top.

Amazon has a couple hats that are similar to Fleurs, as does Etsy. None of the hats are exact, but they are very similar. Some hats are plain, like the one seen here. At least one hat has decorations adorning it.

You probably won't be able to find a dress exactly like the one worn by Fleur in fourth movie but as long as you have this hat the rest of your costume will be instantly recognizable.

Blue Dress With Capelet

There is not an official Beauxbatons dress, which means you can either make your own dress or buy one that is very similar. The dress Fleur wore when she and her fellow Beauxbatons students arrived at Hogwarts for the Triwizard Tournament was medium blue, knee length, and had long sleeves. It also had a capelet (a mini cape) at the shoulders. I don't know if the cape was attached to the dress or not.

During my research for a blue dress I was able to find the dress that you see here. It has short sleeves, not long, but it is similar enough that you could wear it.

Unfortunately,  there are not a lot of these dresses available for sale, at least not as of this writing. There are only a couple on Amazon, but eBay has the better selection so I recommend that you start there.

Blue Dress Without Capelet

I found another dress on Amazon that doesn't have a capelet but is elegant and has medium long sleeves. This is a very feminine and elegant dress, just like Fleur. The color of this dress looks to be a little lighter than the hat but I think the colors compliment each other.

Blue Retro Style Dress

There is one more type of dress that I found that you might want to consider. Take a look at 1950s rockabilly dresses. Yes, I know, Fleur didn't wear this exact type of dress, but they are very feminine, just like Fleur, and would work if you add a blue hat.

Black Tights

Fleur wore black tights with her Beauxbatons school dress. You can wear them, too, if you want your Fleur costume to be as accurate as possible.

Blue Shoes

The last part of Fleur's school uniform was her shoes. They were heels that were blue with darker blue wingtips. I've never seen anything like them and couldn't find any shoes that were even close to what we saw in the movie. Therefore, I recommend that you wear a pair of blue heels that match as closely as possible the color of your dress.

Triwizard Third Task Outfit

Black Tank Top

Fleur wore a workout suit with what appeared to be a black tank top when she entered the maze for the final Triwizard Tournament challenge. This outfit is much easier to replicate than Fleur's school uniform.f

There are plenty of black tank tops for you to choose from. You will have your choice of materials and backs (i.e. racerback). Get whatever you are most comfortable wearing.

Workout Suit

The workout suit Fleur wore in the movie was a shade of blue that was almost identical to the blue seen here. Fleur's outfit had a black stripe running up the side of the pants and jacket so if you are crafty then you can add your own stripes. The stripes were subtle so it is okay to leave them off.

I highly recommend at least one addition to your suit - a Beauxbatons school crest or Triwizard Tournament patch. I have this item listed a little further down and patches are very easy to sew onto clothing.

Shoes

The shoes Fleur wore were black athletic shoes, which match the black stripe on the suit and the tank top.

If you already own a pair of black walking shoes then wear those. Otherwise, I've gathered together shoes that will work for this Fleur costume. I did my best to remove shoes that have color but a few might have snuck in despite my best efforts. Look for shoes that are completely black.

Optional Accessories

Beauxbatons Crest Patch

Beauxbatons Academy of Magic is in Pyrenees, which is located in the Southern part of France. Their official coat of arms, seen here and described in the books, is of two golden wands that are crossed. Each wand has three magical stars coming out of it.

If you want to wear a Beauxbatons crest then there is a very good chance that it won't look like this one. The crest seen in the movies has a 'B' on it, and above the 'B' are two wands that are crossed. The crest is highly adorned with golden flowers, and golden leaves, and has a very French feeling to it.

As I stated above, I recommend that you add either a Beauxbatons crest or Triwizard patch if you want to wear the exercise outfit. The patches seem to be one of the easiest items to find so you hopefully you will not have any problems locating one to buy. [1]

Triwizard Tournament Patch

The other patch that you can add to your Fleur Delacour costume is the Triwizard Tournament patch. There are a couple different patches available. The image below shows a collection of patches for all three schools involved, including Beauxbatons, as well as an official Triwizard Tournament patch. The link for these is the Amazon - Emblem link.

There are also patches that are not school specific. There are several of these available at both Amazon (the patch link) and eBay.

Triwizard Cup

Fleur Delacour was chosen by the Goblet of Fire to represent her school in the Triwizard Tournament. There are a couple different versions of the Triwizard cup, including a movie prop replica and necklaces.

Golden Egg

The very first task in the Triwizard Tournament required each of the four Champions to take a golden egg away from a vicious dragon. That was difficult enough, but then each Champion had to figure out the mystery of their eggs to prepare for the second task.

There are several variations of the egg. You can buy a movie prop replica that looks just like the eggs in the fourth movie, you can buy a small pin and wear it on your outfit, or you can even wear an egg pendant.
