A polyjuice potion, as seen in Harry Potter, is an advanced and difficult potion to brew, it allows you to change your appearance in to that of any other person.

It takes about a month to make a polyjuice potion and it needs to be brewed over a flame. Plus you'll need a few magical ingredients...

1. Lacewing Flies

You'll then need to leave your potion to brew for 30 days, which is equivalent to one Earth month. After this time you'll need to add a bit of the person you want to turn into, such as a lock of hair.

Stir in the hair and then immediately drink the potion and you will instantly turn into the person you desire to look like for about one hour.
