The Most WTF Unofficial Harry Potter Merchandise (PICTURES)

There's no denying Harry Potter has a recession-proof touch, boosting sales of everything from amusement park tickets to Legos to knockoff children's novels. So it's no surprise that individual fans are looking to cash in on the brand as well, and the upcoming release of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" should mean a surge in entrepreneurial fan activity across the web. But mix hardcore fandom with an enterprising spirit, and you can end up with a recipe for disaster -- especially when arts and crafts are involved.

With that in mind, we searched Etsy for some of the most ridiculous products Harry Potter capitalizers had to offer -- and the results did not disappoint. Check out our favorites below:

Hogwarts school colors are like lifeblood for the sartorial visionaries of Harry Potter fandom, with Gryffindor's scarlet-and-gold banner an overwhelming favorite in costumes, accessories, and apparently, pet clothing. But this oddly-shaped, ear-crushing dog "hat" goes a little too far.
