Panel
When:
10:15 AM, Sunday 11 Aug 2019 CDT (1 hour)
Where:
Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center - Puffskein Room (D163/165)
How:
Imagine being a member of the South Asian Diaspora waiting to see a piece of your culture on screen in the Harry Potter Universe: Padma and Parvati Patil's Yule Ball Gowns. Now imagine watching Goblet of Fire and realizing that the twins were dressed in the equivalent of a jersey maxi dress to a fancy-dress ball. Were those colors even what was in the book? (No!) The hosts of the Jilted Indian Podcast discuss why the Patil Twins' Yule Ball Gowns were an insult to the characters and a missed opportunity for representation, then walk through examples of Muggle Indian fashion fit for the modern witch.
