Inside: A review of the Harry Potter WOW! STUFF Invisibility Cloak
We are massive Harry Potter fans in this house! I read all of the books years ago and have passed down my love of all things magical to the children. They have seen all of the movies and Grace has read all of the books.
We can’t get enough!
This year Grace wanted a Harry Potter themed birthday party and so, with Pinterest as my guide, I pulled out all of the stops. We had themed activities, themed food and played the soundtrack throughout.
It was awesome.
We were very lucky to be sent a few extra props for the day, including the fantastic Invisibility Cloak from WOW! STUFF.
I have to say I was dubious at how well it would work but I can tell you now, it is super clever and will impress everyone!
How does it work?
It uses green screen technology to match to the background but other than that I think it is just magic.
Wear the cape one way and it looks like the cape as you know it from the movies – it will make any budding wizard or witch feel the part.
The inside of the cape has bright green lining though and this is how the magic happens.
You need to download the WOW! STUFF app to make the cape do its thing. You also need the activation code, which is found on the instruction booklet. Once you are set up you are ready to go.
First of all, you must set the camera phone up on the handy stand provided. It is key that the camera is kept still. Press the button while they are ‘off-screen’ so that the app can do its magic and then invite them back into the frame….
How clever is that?
You can either press record at this point to do a video (as above) or you can take a photo. For the party, we took photos of each guest in the cloak so they could have an extra memento of the day.
The cloak itself is a nice quality and is great for just swishing around the house in while they practice their spells. But with the added fun of the app, it turns a cool cloak into the coolest cloak around.
We were gifted the cape but all words and thoughts are my own.
