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.

All that friendship, compassion, mild rejection... poured out  into one song. Amazing. Tear jerker right there! *sobs* Okay... now that I'm done be extremely melodramatic, I agree 100% with what has been said. Loyalty to your friend is definitely what's best in the situation -and you've seem to be following through on this. Good. Now... can you just leave the girl alone? It might be better if you just ignore her.  thankyou, thankyou :P can you guess where my inspiration was from? :D
