The Marauder's Map by Groovygirlsuzy17 The Marauder's Map by Groovygirlsuzy17
I had made my own Marauder's Map a couple of years ago but it was very different from the real one, so I made a new one. This time I used burgundy ink and yellow parchment paper. I sketched out the map first before going over it with ink, which I'm glad I did. There are tiny little areas that I don't like where an accident happened (the ink soaked into my U in Marauder's) but other than that I really love the final outcome. It is a little cramped though because the parchment is much smaller and a different shape than Harry's map in the movies.

Did you copy the one that NECA (this company that sells all of this Harry Potter merchandise) came out with? Because they look exactly the same! The only difference between theirs and yours is that your ink is a little bit brighter than the one they used. Good job! :D

Fantastic! Does it unfold as well?`
And how did you know all the writing? I've never seen all the text on it before..

Link didn't work...it's [link]. The pillow I'm talking about is almost all the way down the page, in the middle.

Nah it doesn't unfold. I was lazy and only wanted to do the front, lol. I knew the writing because I have a pillow that has the Marauder's Map all over it...I got it from Whimsic Alley in Santa Monica: [link]

I've been wanting to make one myself, but I've never been able to see all the writing on it..

Woah, this is amazing! There wouldn't be a map of Hogwarts tucked inside, would there? If so, I think I may steal it.
Even if it's just the outside, I'm still gonna steal it ;)
Good job. You can really tell you put a whole lot of work into it!
