Harry Potter and The Chamber Of Secrets may be darker than the first film, but its Hong Kong premiere was awash with bright lights. But not only celebrities posed for the flashlights, hardcore Harry Potter fans also became stars for five minutes with their impressive costumes. We were told to come dressed as our favourite Harry Potter character, but it wasn't always easy to tell if people had dressed up like the children in the film or were cold and just happened to have put on a stripey scarf before they came out. Most of the cameras were trained on two girls in perfect Harry Potter costumes. Carol Chan Suk-tang, posing with Harry Potter's sword, said her costume had cost her several thousand dollars. 'It is an official Harry Potter outfit manufactured by Warner Brothers, I ordered it from overseas,' said the 22-year-old teacher. However, prices for different Hogwart uniforms are not uniform. Carol Chan Hiu-ching said that her outfit, which looked exactly the same as her friend's to less die-hard fans like me, only cost her $300. 'It's tailor-made in Shenzhen. I am not as dedicated as [Suk-tang],' said Hiu-ching. However, attention to detail was not a deciding factor when it came to judging the costumes, as neither girl won. Cuteness seemed to be the order of the day - with glasses larger than his face and robe dragging on ground, five-year-old Brian Rogan won the best costume prize.
