„Against his will, Magnus found a smile curving his lips as he rummaged around for his big blue coffee cup that said BETTER THAN GANDALF across the front in sparkly letters. He was besotted; he was officially revolted by himself.“
– What to buy the Shadowhunter who has everything by Cassandra Clare
The Mortal Instruments series including The Bance Chronicles by Cassandra Clare is hands down my favorite book series of all time. If I could ever only read one single book for the rest of my life, it would definitely be one of this series. It’s so good that I’d wish I could read that series again for the very first time. A good book can not work without great characters and I can’t even tell you how much I love all of these characters, especially Magnus Bane. Magnus Bane is the most amazing book character ever created and I will always be thankful and love Cassandra Clare for creating this awesome story with all these awesome characters. Thank you!
Well, since I’m a huge fan of the TMI series I love to collect any kind of TMI merch. I always wanted Magnus‘ mug; I searched the whole Internet for such a mug but couldn’t find one. So I decided to make one myself. It’s pretty easy though. It doesn’t exactly looks like the mug is described in the book but I love it anyway.
So all you need to make your own Better than Gandalf-mug is a (blue) coffee cup and a ceramic marker. That’s it!
