Another Hogwarts Icon: Luna’s Spectrespecs

Movie characters sometimes have a piece of clothes or another personal item that becomes characteristic for them. One such example is Luna Lovegood's Spectrespecs, which were also used on the very first Luna Lovegood LEGO minifigure. While available in minifigure scale, with the new Hogwarts Icons set out, I thought it would be nice with a full-sized version. So this is what I did...

REVIEW: Hogwarts Chamber of Secrets
