I battled Abernathy from the Harry Potter universe and managed to get a few items, so if you’d like to see how that went down, see below! (Want to watch this? – WATCH VIDEO)

The other weekend I met Kevin Guthrie, who plays Abernathy in Fantastic Beasts, and of course I wanted to get an autograph but I didn’t just want to get an autograph…


I also wanted to get a photo because he was doing a photo opportunity, because I find that getting a photo it kind of puts you more into the Wizard World, well at least is does for me…

 


Anyone who hasn’t seen the Crimes of Grindelwald yet then watch out but, after meeting him, I did have a discussion about him and that it was actually him in the beginning of the film…

 

playing you know Grindelwald and then changing into him and I was asking him about his leather coat because I was considering cosplaying him when I did meet him…

 


but he had this like amazing long leather coat and I was like that’s a bit short notice to get it, like you know, a screen accurate leather coat…

 

 

and I asked him, like did to have a wand pocket and then he said, it did have
wand pocket, so I thought that was really cool that it did actually, that they put a one pocket in the coat for him…

 

and that he had the elder wand so I was like, what was it like holding the elder wand and he was like it was really cool…

 


and then it turned out that he was actually a really big Harry Potter fan as well…

 

which is always wonderful to hear that that people that play in the films are big Harry Potter fans as well because it just makes it feel even more amazing that they get to experience this…

 

and I feel really happy for them that these incredible fans like Evanna Lynch and also Ezra Miller, like they are these really big fans that get to be in the universe…


so I was like, I can only imagine the life they’re living, I just envy them so much – it would be so amazing, but also very happy for them that they get experience such an amazing time…

 


While we were talking his coat and the wand pocket, I got thinking to myself…

 

I don’t actually, have his wand yet…

 

Shamefully! I was like I’m meeting Abernathy and I don’t even have his wand, so I was like, I’m so stupid, I should’ve bought his wand and then had him sign the wand!..

 

and I already had the blood pact and I did bring it with me to the convention because I was going to a photo shoot with him later and I thought funny if I did a kind of funny spoof about that…

 


and so I already had the blood pact but I didn’t have his wand, so I thought well, okay let me look around all the stalls…


and if they have his wand, then it’s the universe telling me I should get the wand and then I will go from there…

 


surprising there was only one stall that sold Abernathy’s wand and I find that very shocking because like he was gonna be there, you’d think that most of the stalls would at least have the stock…

 


so I was very grateful for that stall, because they had Abernathy’s wand and I’m really pleased with how it is it’s got like a cool kind of swirl handle which I didn’t actually notice before…

 

and it’s got quite a plain, like wooden, rest of the wand, but it’s really cool, so I did buy it and then I took it and then I had him sign it…


so as you see this is Abernathy’s wand and I’ve seen a lot of people get the outside side but, as you may have noticed up here, that I have a lot of my wands stacked…



and I do get the boxes in and out, now and then and get the wands out when I use them for videos…

 


so I thought if it’s signed on the outside and it doesn’t sit, it’s not situated at the top it, like his autograph might rub off and obviously I don’t want that…

 

so I decided to get it signed on the inside because I thought it would be a little bit more protected, and then I can stack it without any worry…

 

and so then I got his autograph in there as well…


so I did actually get another one as well but this is the the main one that I’m so pleased with, because this is the actor that plays him, this is the wand, so I was just like, me living my Harry Potter life!..

 

Getting it signed, I don’t know if he could tell how excited I was because I was like WAH!

 

So not only did I get his wand and get it signed by the actor that plays Abernathy, but I that also managed to get two autographs…



The other autograph is this one, which I thought was a really cool because that’s when he changed and I just thought his hair looked cool there as well…

 

it says To Rodney, Lovely to meet you, Kevin Guthrie…

and then, this is the photograph that I had taken with him

 


which I’ll do a close up and basically to explain it this is that glove hat that I wear, which is like Dumbledore’s pointing glove…


and it’s like stuck to my hat and then I’m holding the Blood Pact pendant and I gave him his wand and I said, like if you wouldn’t mind holding it and so I was like – “this is my pendant, like I’ve got it now” ha ha!


and then he’s like, he’s just thinking like “what am I doing”…his face, this is such a funny photo!


So – What did you think about my photo? I really enjoyed doing it and I know it was
super geeky but I really had fun doing that…
