View Full Version : Gryffindor patch?

11-27-2011, 11:20 PM
I have been looking and looking for a good Gryffindor patch. I want it to be close to the movie version (poa and up if there is a difference) as possible. I have found a few good ones but do not know which is more like the movie.... I can't seem to find too many reference pictures (the ones I have aren't too good) that really show it off. Here is the few I found, any opinions/suggestions would be great!

Any help is much appreciated! Thanks! ^_^

I personally like number one. I think it looks the most like the movie. But really it does not have to be exact. Hope that helped.

I like this one (3) (http://www.scifigeeks.com/product_info.php/products_id/6409?osCsid=272aa340116257a6ea0a96362e281d7c). I like that it is done without a border. I don't care for the one with the yellow border (1) (http://www.ebay.com/itm/HARRY-POTTER-GRYFFINDOR-Large-Embroidered-Robe-Patch-/190572649056) which has the "TM" after Gryffindor. In general, I don't care for that kind of laser cut patch and in the picture the edges look a bit rough. Of the two done on black fabric, I prefer 4 (http://www.scifigeeks.com/product_info.php/products_id/6410) to 2 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Gryffindor-patch-Harry-Potter-House-TOP-QUALITY-/320633001052). Design 2 has too much black space in the red and yellow. The only "inaccuracy" that I can see in the SciFi Geeks badges is the red border around the "GRYFFINDOR" banner. :/ But I sincerely doubt that anyone is going to notice.

Why not get the Patch Palace one?
It's relatively accurate as the design was help done up by a Fan. Only thing not accurate for the PoA one is the Base Fabric used which is Cotton Drill instead of Felt like the Movie-Used ones.
