Judging HARRY POTTER Wands By How Aesthetically Pleasing They Are
Ah, the wands of Harry Potter. We’ve all seen them, and many of us probably own at least one of them.

As we know, the main cores of wands are either a unicorn hair, a phoenix feather, or the heartstring of a dragon, but on the outside, the possibilities for what the wand actually looks like are endless.

And so I come to you today to judge some of the most famous wands from the series by how aesthetically pleasing they are. The wand’s power or owner will not come into play here; I just want to talk about whether or not I like the way they look. Yes, I’m that petty. For reference, we will be running through a selection of the officially licensed collector’s wands released by The Noble Collection. There are a lot of wands, so this is only a selection. Don’t @ me.
