Newton Fido Scamander was just a name to Harry Potter and his fellow Hogwarts students, a name found on a book they had to read for school. But attached to that name was a man and his life.
We get to learn about Newt's life in the movie trilogy, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, taken from his book of the same name.
In the movie we watched as Newt met, then later befriended, Jacob Kowalski, Tina Goldstein, and her sister Queenie. We also got to see the wonderful collection of creatures that Newt kept inside his briefcase, including a niffler, demiguise, and bowtruckle.
Perhaps one of the most interesting things to witness in the first movie was watching Newt navigate his ways around the world of people, magical or muggle. He would much rather be in the company of his beasts than humans, but he started to understand that there are times when having friends is a good thing.
I had a lot of fun researching what you might want to dress up as Newt. From his signature blue coat and clothes to his wand and suitcase, here is everything you need for a Newt Scamander costume.
