Katniss Everdeen Hunger Games Costume
A good halloween costume idea if you’re a girl – one that most people will easily recognize and is fairly distinctive without going overboard – is the Katniss Everdeen costume from the movie the Hunger Games!
Katniss is the protagonist in the movie. Coming from a small village, Katniss volunteers to go into the gladiator-style competition that is held each year, called the Hunger Games. She goes into the game representing her district – District 12. Although the movie is set in the future, the world that Everdeen lives in is without technology and quite simliar to a world of the past. Because of that, the costume choice is fairly easy for you to assemble!!
Main Prop you will need to be Katniss:
The main costume item that you need to be this Hunger Games character is the BOW. Katniss hunts for her own food, and so is skilled in archery and the use of a bow and arrow. She carries her bow around with her constantly. For this prop, you’ll want a set of arrows in a pouch slung across your back. The actual bow you can carry in your hand!
What Katniss looks like
Another key component of this halloween costume will be hair styling as this is one of Katniss’ main physical features! Everdeen has long brown hair that she often wears in a braid which falls over one of her shoulders. If you have naturally brown hair, then you are in luck! If not, you can purchase a wig fairly inexpensively online or in a local halloween shop.
A great accessory – which is not absolutely necessary, but will certainly add a touch of authenticity to your costume is a mockingjay pin. Katniss wears the pin when she competes in the Hunger Games. You can make one yourself with a little bit of cardboard and paint / markers!
Everdeen’s clothing is fairly simple. She is not overly girly, and tends to wear dark leather or black jackets with her arrows or some other pack slung over her back. Her pants should be a dark brown color and somewhat form fitting.
That’s all there is to this Hunger Games costume! Pretty simple! 🙂
