Today in “Awwwwwwwwwwww” is the story of Shelby Stein, whose boyfriend of five years, Jared Weissman, made her a Nimbus 2000 from scratch as a Christmas gift.
The build took him three weeks. He used a 2×4 piece of pine for the handle and basket reed and styrofoam for the broom. Those were covered in a mahogany stain and polyurethane. He even hand-painted the Nimbus 2000 logo and made a kickstand out of plastic rod and painted it gold.
But, he didn’t stop there. Knowing Shelby was a serious Potterhead, he went all out. As she told Seventeen:
“It was wrapped in brown paper and twine just like it was in the movie when Harry receives in the Great Hall from his owl Hedwig,” Shelby said. ” I could tell what it was from the shape of it, and I just remember being so excited and even cried!
They even cosplay together! I’d say he’s a Keeper.
