Got a wrinkle? Make it tingle! Look more femme-ish — blast a blemish! Eyelids saggy and feeling haggy? Try Erla’s mystical creams and be the witch of his dreams! Proudly beautifying mages of all ages since 1928.

Long Description (200 words min):

At the East end of Diagon Alley, Erla’s narrow brick shop sits nearly lopsided, only two metres in width and sandwiched between two neighboring establishments. A large lavender sign hangs above the entrance with golden curly letters: Erla’s Essential Essences for the Modern Magnificent Witch. (“Erla’s Essentials for short,” Erly would say.) A shimmering tapestry dangles off of the doorway with the message: Inquire within for a COMPLIMENTARY CONSULTATION with apothecarian-beautician and anti-haggifying expert, Madame Erla Higginsworth.

Upon stepping inside, customers are greeted by overwhelming smells of lavender, sage, frog’s legs, roses, cat’s bottom, buttermilk – as each customer is unique, each may uniquely experience the strange combination of fragrances in Erla’s shop. The tiny narrow shop is filled with shelves of differently sized and colored vials and jars of serums, ointments, and creams promising to “twinkle away that wrinkle” and “blast off that blemish!”. The walls glow with varying shades of purple, pink, and blue, with an oversized glittering chandelier dangling from the center of the slanted ceiling. Each display is adorned with ribbons, crystals, and sparkling knick-knacks. 

Facing the entryway sits a table with a large magenta sign: COMPLIMENTARY BEAUTY CONSULTATIONS. Here, Erla waits expectantly for new customers to seek advice on their particular beauty situation. Erla is quick to recommend a variety of her handmade creams and essences, using her warm honeylike persuasion and the power of placebo to make a loyal customer of any age and status!

What purpose will this shop serve other than selling things and being the home of your character? Why would people want to RP there just for fun?
Erla’s Essentials is a unique RP destination because every witch (or even wizard) would like a little beauty boost every once in a while! Whether one is looking for anti-aging products or a glowing complexion for a Hogwarts ball, Erla has something to offer (that may or may not be effective or rash-inducing, but worth a shot, right?)! Also, Erla absolutely adores giving free consultations to anyone and everyone at the expense of her time and profits.
