Harry Potter fans are the fiercest kind of loyal, so it should surprise no one that upon finding out a statue of beloved house elf Dobby was caged, visitors began protesting by leaving socks near his case. (That’s a nod to the only way to free a house elf — by giving them a piece of clothing.)

Fans began sharing photos of Dobby in the Warner Bros. Studio Leavesden, surrounded by socks — J.K. Rowling retweeted one below — and another Harry Potter devotee posted one from a Paris exhibit.
