Luna Lovegood’s Wand

Rochelle May 12, 2017 @ 10:04PM

If you want Luna Lovegood's wand you might be surprised to see how many variations there are. You can buy a traditional wand, an interactive wand, or even a handmade custom wand.

Luna is one of a handful of characters from Harry Potter who had more than one wand. Her original wand was taken from her from the Snatchers who kidnapped her so Mr. Ollivander agreed to make a new wand for Luna. To the best of my knowledge, this is the only known instance where a wand was custom made for a person.

The wand seen here is the one most commonly associated with Luna. This is Luna's second wand, the one made for her by Ollivander as a way of thanking Luna for her kindness to him during their confinement in Malfoy Manor.

Wand Wood

The wood that Luna's second wand was made from is unknown.

Wand Core

The core of Luna's second wand is unknown. Mr. Ollivander might have chosen a core that suited Luna since he got to know her quite well. My guess would be the tail hair of a Thestral since Luna was known to enjoy spending time with ​Thestrals in the fifth film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

Wand Length

13.5 inches​

Wand Design

This wand is very feminine looking. It is slender, and the end is shaped like a tulip. Mr. Ollivander made the wand in the spring, and the tulip is a spring flower. That might be merely a coincidence, but I wonder...

The color of tulips symbolize many different things. Luna's wand doesn't have a color other than wood, but I find it curious that yellow tulips symbolize cheerfulness and sunshine, something that I think Luna often exhibits in her own unique way.

I do want to mention one thing about this wand. The ends of the wand are a little bit sharp. Not sharp enough to cause cut your skin, but I want to make you aware of this since it might not be a good choice for young children.

Ollivanders Wand

This is the wand that you will see for sale if you are fortunate enough to go to Universal Studio's Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It comes in one of Mr. Ollivander's boxes that is lined with a soft material to keep your wand safe for years to come.

Interactive Ollivanders Wand

Interactive wands are Ollivander wands, but unlike the traditional Ollivander wands, these can be used to cast magical spells at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios. There is an interactive version of Luna Lovegood's wand that looks identical to the one seen above, except at the tip. I wrote about interactive Harry Potter wands if you are unfamiliar with them.​ You can read about them here.

The Noble Collection version of Luna's wand includes a different box than the Ollivanders box and a removable name tag. The Noble Collection wand is a bit darker than the Ollivanders version. Noble Collection boxes are lined with a soft material to help protect your wand.

Custom Wands

There are many sellers on Etsy who have made their own versions of what they think Luna's wand looks like. Some are of her original wand (the one that chose her in Ollivanders Wand Shop when she was 11 years old), and others are of the tulip wand.
