A crowdfunding campaign for a role-playing wizard's school adventure has so far raised over $230,000.
Known as 'New World Magischola', the LARP ( Live Action Role Play ) event will see fans of the Harry Potter franchise take part in a three-day real world 'college of wizardry' course featuring everything from potion-making classes to the chance to interact with 'magical creatures'.
Situated at the University of Richmond, the event costs $450 and is open to role-players who want the experience of attending a real-life version of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The crowdfunding campaign
has proven surprisingly popular since appearing online and has so far raised a whopping $283,541 - a total far exceeding its original $35,000 goal.
"We believe that North America needs its own magical universe, and we decided to create it," the campaign website states. "We want to bring it to life through fiction, art, and live action role-play."
