Hollywood Halloween How-To: Katniss Everdeen

Want to be Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games for Halloween this year? Here's Kidzworld's How-To for 2012!

Games Costume

The games costume is all about stealth and movability, so it's also a comfortable one. Your basic outfit is either an all-in-one black catsuit or a form-fitting v-neck black t-shirt over a pair of fleece or nylon running pants. High brown boots round out the base of this costume.

For hair, if you don't want to go for two days without washing, you can just as easily apply a thin coating of hair mud or shaping clay to keep it looking damp and piece-y. Braid hair into a loose side braid.

The accessories make the outfit. Katniss wears a black hooded rain jacket or a faux leather brown coat. Her mockingjay pin is available on sale at Amazon.com or other costume retailers, or you can print out a copy, cut it out and duct tape it to a safety pin to make your own. For the quiver of arrows, you can buy a fake quiver at any costume store or make your own by rolling up black posterboard into a tube-shape, strapping it to your back by running a black belt through the center of the tube and across your body on a diagonal. Pick up some fake arrows or if you're crafty fashion your own using tape, paper or feathers and scissors.

Interview Costume

Katniss' interview costume was not only a hot one-shoulder formal dress, it also was ringed at the bottom by the illusion of fire. To get this look, you'll to look a bit like Katniss to pull it off. You'll also need an off-the-shoulder long red dress, preferably with a gauzy or crepe hem. Pull your hair up into a messy bun at the back of your head and pile on the makeup like it's prom night.

It feels like no one cares about me at school. I really can't trust anybody either. I started to quit eating at home and at school only eating snacks every now and then. I am also losing Weight. I used to get called fat and i wasn't even fat. I have been abused by people who say my butt is smexy and huge and it's not. I have even been slapped on by them. I tell my mom and dad that i've been called fat and my dad ignore's me and continues whatever he's doing. I'm getting to the point again where i'm losing my temper and emotions right on the spot. I can't be bipolar cause it has to run in the family and my mom says i don't have it. People get mad at me when i don't laugh at their jokes when they expect me too cause i really don't listen. But when i say something funny they roll their eyes and give me mean looks. I don't even want to be around people that much. I just want to be outside in the fresh air during school but it's high school so their's no outside time. I also fake smile's at people to make them happy. But i just hurt on the inside. I just want advice.  Hi there. I'm sure you have people who care about you at school, just sometimes it's hard to see it. Dear, you have to eat. I assure you, you're not fat. (smexy isn't necessarily a bad thing)  You have to understand, that people say things just because they can, or to make themselves feel better. Never give them that opportunity, just ignore them. When you're about to lose your temper, think of something that makes you really happy.  If you need someone to talk to, you have your guidance consular, trust me I have social anxiety, and reallly hate talking about my problems, I find it easier for me, to message them. It's their job to listen, but not only that, they really care for all of their students. Talking helps, believe me.

Things happen for a reason, normally to make others stronger. Trust me, nothing is worth taking your own life. If you need to talk I'm here, however I would suggest you talking to an adult.  Friends come and go. you have family, and if not, you have me, Trust me, it's not worth it. please, don't.
