Rowena Ravenclaw

Rowena Ravenclaw from Harry Potter

There is no official actress for Rowena Ravenclaw as the founder died long before Harry Potter attended Hogwarts.

For this version you’ll need a long auburn wig, a blue gown, matching blue slippers, a wand, and a leather journal with a blue stone. An eagle necklace rounds out the bewitching look.
