Professor Severus Snape Costume for Cosplay & Halloween 2020

Professor Severus Snape is one of the youngest professors in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He started during his early 20s as the Potions Master, and taught Harry Potter and his friends during their stay in the castle.

He was a vital part of the war efforts during the first and second Wizarding War against Voldemort, and was loyal to Dumbledore until the end.

Professor Snape wore an all-black ensemble that perfectly mimics his surly attitude. He prefers a Chinese-collared, button-down, top and black dress pants underneath his billowing pitch black robes. Of course, he was also well-known for his long greasy hair. Here’s everything you need to look like Professor Snape.
