Moaning Myrtle Makeup

Myrtle attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizadry until 1943, when she was killed by the giant king serpent Basilisk - also known as the Serpent of Slytherin.

She was a witch considered Muggle-born because both of her parents were non-magical.

Since her death, she roams the bathroom facilities at Hogwarts as a ghost and prefers to haunt the girls' bathroom at school where she died.

Nobody missed me even when I was alive. Took them hours to find my body - I know, I was sitting there waiting for them. Olive Hornby came into the bathroom - 'Are you in here again, sulking Myrtle?, she said, 'because Professor Dippet asked me to look for you-' And then she saw my body…ooooh, she didn't forget that until her dying day, I made sure of that!

Poor Myrtle was constantly teased and made fun of by the other students and cried a lot because of the bullying. Because of her sobbing, the kids began to refer to her as Moaning Myrtle.

Moaning Myrtle appears in the these Harry Potter movies:

  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
  • Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
