- "Ferret fur is in - leather is out!"
Frogue Magazine, or simply FROGUE, is a Witch and Wizards fashion & current affairs magazine, lead by the frolicsome wizard Isembert Dump, an international celebrity.
The magazine seems to spotlight those of influence or flocking fame and has an antiquated style that would receive great scorn in the muggle world, yet in its own, has a followship so large and devoted, it is considered the second biggest issuer in Britain, after the Daily Prophet.
The FROGUE headquarters are based in London, and are said to be "Beyond the Boy and Frog statue", in Queen Mary's garden.
The magazine is owned and edited by buoyant, pink-pantellete wearing wizard, Isembert Dump. As founder of the magazine, if true, this would make him exceptionally old.
The magazine endorses all manner of witch and wizards, Celebrity or Political. Philomena Pest, a Daily Prophet columnist was featured in both the Winter 2023 and Spring 2024 editions.
The Spring 2024 Edition was released on the 7th of April 2024 and spotlighted a number of contemporary subjects, such as how to wear a yellow snapdragon to a funeral, how to murder the neighbours cat and wear it well, and hearsay on the upcoming potions olympics.
The Winter 2023 Edition, released on August 13th 2023, spotlighted the resurgence of ferret fur, and the slow cessation of fox fur & leather, alcoholism among celebrity body guards, and exclusive information on Philomena's upcoming tell-all book 'WarLOCKED out of Hogwarts' which later failed to reach publication due to unknown legal reasons.
