Lord Voldemort costumes and Horcrux props from Harry Potter on display...

You know when a villain is truly evil when you dare not speak his name, but even though J .K. Rowling's 'Lord Voldemort' was a cunning creature, he was still defeated by Harry Potter and his loyal friends. If you're a fan of 'Tom Riddle' who split his soul in eight through murder, then you'll love these costumes worn by the dark wizard and the magical horcruxes where his divided soul resided.

These eerie wizarding robes worn by Ralph Fiennes as the dark lord in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 were designed by Jany Temime and photographed on display upstairs at the Warner Bros. Studios VIP Tour Museum on July 29, 2014.

Using the dark magics on his quest for immortality Voldemort intentionally created six horcruxes and unintentionally made Harry Potter himself as horcrux, though the part of his soul that resides inside his human form means he actually split his soul in eight.

When Harry Potter realizes that the only way he stands a chance of killing Voldemort is to destroy all his horcruxes, he sets out with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger in The Deathly Hallows movies to destroy them all.

Voldemort placed his soul into many objects owned by the founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, including Rowena Ravenclaw's Diadem (or tiara) which was destroyed by Fiendfyre in the Room of Requirement, Salazar Slytherin's Locket which was destroyed by Ron with the Sword of Gryffindor and Helga Hufflepuff's Cup which was destroyed by Hermione with a basilisk fang.

Marvalo Gaunt's Ring, inset with the Resurrection Stone, was destroyed by Hogwarts Headmaster 'Albus Dumbledore', whilst Voldemort's deadly familiar snake horcrux 'Nagini' was killed by Harry's classmate 'Neville Longbottom' with the Sword of Gryffindor.

Another of Voldemort's horcruxes, Tom Riddle's Diary, was destroyed by Harry with a basilisk fang in The Chamber of Secrets when the diary had unknowingly possessed Ron's sister, Ginny Weasley.

Another of Lord Voldemort's costumes on display was this hooded cape worn by the dark wizard in the first movie from 2001, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Sorcerer's Stone in the U.S.), when he is discovered feeding on unicorn's blood in the Dark Forest. This sinister cape was designed by Judianna Makovsky and evokes the Dark Riders from The Lord of the Rings movies.
