In the second story, Hazel discovers that the plain dress she is wearing is not so plain after all once she unlocks the magic, making it the perfect dress – just in time for school picture day!

- Hazel – a big-hearted, driven and curious girl with a leap-before-you-look nature, who puts the finishing touches on all the spells
- Posie – a sweet and quirky “Spellerina” who can come up with spells for any occasion with a song and dance in perfect tune
- Lavender – a bright and feisty “Potionista” who knows how to get to the point, stir up potions and put together hip fashions
