  • A trend started by TikToker @soupytime has creators putting together outfits inspired by characters from the Harry Potter franchise.
  • As part of the trend, people lip-sync along with a number of iconic lines from the Harry Potter films, switching up their outfits throughout.
  • Others are also putting their own spin on the trend, with Harry-Potter-inspired makeup looks or even phone cases.

The latest major fandom TikTok trend to take over the popular video app is a challenge that has creators dressing up in outfits inspired by the main characters from the Harry Potter franchise.

TikTok creator @soupytime, who has approximately 2.3 million followers on the app, kicked off a trend.

The trend itself is driven by its audio, which @soupytime said in a comment that she made herself, encouraging others to use it as well. Backed by an uptempo jazz track, the sound features sound bites from many of Harry Potter's main characters, including Harry, Ron, and Hermione as well as Draco Malfoy, Neville Longbottom, Luna Lovegood, Ginny, Fred, and George Weasley.

In the video, @soupytime changes outfits and lip-syncs along to the character's lines.

That original video, posted on October 16, has amassed approximately 6.4 million likes and over 27 million views. one reupload of the video on Twitter has over 10 million views, reaching nearly 300,000 likes. A follow-up video featuring outfits inspired by the professors of "Harry Potter" has approximately 1.7 million views.

Plenty of other people have hopped on the trend as well, using @soupytime's sound to put their own spin on Harry Potter character-inspired outfits. While many used what appeared to be closet pieces, others brought in elements from the franchise itself, ranging from wands to Luna Lovegood's iconic "Spectrespecs."

Others extended the trend past outfit curation, creating makeup looks or even phone cases inspired by Harry Potter characters.

@soupytime's TikTok went viral on Twitter as well — one repost of the video with the caption "make fun of this tiktok or her and i will find you" has amassed over 10 million views and nearly 290,000 likes.

In a tongue-in-tweet quote reply to that tweet, @soupytime — whose handle on Twitter is @georgsoup — said, "uhh people are saying this is good?? it's actually kinda cringe lol, i'd be embarrassed if i were her. yikes."

Now, in the comments of @soupytime's original video people are tagging Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the movie adaptation of the series and is now known for interacting with fans on TikTok.

"If he sees this I might actually have an aneurysm," @soupytime said in a reply to a comment tagging Felton on her original video.
