There has been a serious adjustment period for me when seeing the stars of Harry Potter in other roles. Of course this has nothing to do with them as actors, but I'm so used to seeing them in their Hogwarts robes, wielding wands that seeing them play other characters was a little weird at first.

For instance, seeing Daniel Radcliffe in The Woman in Black felt a lot like...

Luckily, this feeling is starting to subside. But it doesn't help matters that some of the HP stars are just like us, and love dressing up as their favorite characters. Whether it's a Comic-Con or just Halloween, these Harry Potter stars love showing off their favorite fandoms.

Keep in mind, the following images are not the work of some cleverly crafted Polyjuice potion or tricky Transfiguration!

Daniel Radcliffe as Spider-Man

Since they're recasting Spider-Man for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, can we just make this a thing?

Daniel Radcliffe as Boba Fett

Or this! Let's just have Harry Potter play everyone. Don't mind the little girl's seemingly disappointed expression. She's just not that happy to be standing next to Elijah Wood (joking).

Rupert Grint as Alex from Clockwork Orange

Clockwork Orange is one of those movies that I don't think should ever be remade, but if it is, I wouldn't be as upset if Rupert Grint played Alex.

Evanna Lynch as Katniss Everdeen

It looks like Evanna Lynch is looking to shirk the quirky, good girl role when she cosplayed as The Hunger Games' Katniss at LeakyCon a few years ago. I would have paid good money to see her fighting in the arena.

Matthew Lewis as Sweeney Todd

I know that this character is a murderous barber, but I would still probably pay to sit in his chair and let him sing to me. Well worth the risk.

Tom Felton as a Ghostbuster

Since Ghost Corps plans to make another Ghostbusters film counterpart to the the Paul Feig-directed, all-female cast, maybe Felton can dust off this costume and have a shot at busting some ghosts!

Which of these Harry Potter stars had the best costume? And if you could see one of them playing the roles they're wearing, which would it be? Let me know in the comments section.
