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.

just message him about the situation over text or social media! tell him you still want to be friends & you don't want to let things be so awkward anymore between you two. ^__^

Gurlll, i also can't start conversations either. Well since it's summer? Do you know his social media... like Twitter or Instagram? You can try messaging him about how you feel. I know it seems crazy but just try. Or just confront him in person when you see him in seventh grade. Confidence is key. If he still continues to ignore you  and avoid you, then he's not worth your time gurll. Just ignore him. And focus on your goals and get big and make sure that he regrets avoiding you.  lol you don't have to do all of that, but good luck   :)

Try asking him about his hobbies, whats up, etc. normal stuff. You guys might find some interesting stuff about each other or even more.

So ever since last Monday my crush has been ignoring me, and I didn't want to push him into talking. We smile and wave but that's about it. I don't know how to get a conversation started. I do compliment, and that never works, but I also asked him what his school profile picture was. He answered and the conversation stopped there. Oh, and I don't think I mentioned that my bff doesn't really like him at all.
