The Hunger Games Mockingjay Costumes
The multimedia powerhouse that is The Hunger Games franchise continues to be wildly popular.
Mockingjay is the final book in the trilogy, and all three books have been made into dramatic and enjoyable movies as well.
Set in the imaginary futuristic world that is Panem, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay has created some popular Halloween costumes.
The star of The Hunger Games is Katniss Everdeen, a favorite Halloween choice of teen and tween girls every year.
Her basic look has been seen in all movies, and includes a single braid worn over her shoulder as well as a formfitting black outfit.
Separate pieces of this Mockingjay Costume, which was also seen in The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, include a black tank top or T-shirt, black pants and a black jacket.
To complete the look, purchase the Mockingjay pin Katniss wears in the movies.
Another great Katniss costume is the simple Mockingjay dress Jennifer Lawrence wears in the two-part film of the same name.
Black and sleeveless, this dress draws in tightly at the waist. Pick up a set of black Mockingjay wings online and you are complete.
You can also add makeup to accessorize your Mockingjay Katniss costume.
At various parts in the different movies, our heroine is made up in smoky gray and brownish colors or bright reds and oranges.
You can also accessorize with false rhinestones placed below the eyes.
Of course, there are multiple Hunger Games Mockingjay costumes available for purchase online, due to the incredible success of the book and movie series.
Peeta Mellark is played by Josh Hutcherson, with the character representing District 12 in the Hunger Games.
He develops a very special bond with Katniss Everdeen, and is usually seen in the same outfit in the movie.
Young men portraying Peeta need simply where a black shirt and dark green, black or brown jeans.
There is also an alternate white suit and dark black suit, which has red trim on the pants and coat.
A black bodysuit with silver arms and black boots is another Peeta costume alternative.
Gale Hawthorne is the best friend of Katniss, and another important male character from the film.
Basically dark shirts and pants make this character, but you can add a knife and hiking boots to be more effectively recognized.
He is also seen in all three films wearing a green vest over multiple long sleeve shirts, and an officially licensed Hunger Games jacket is available as well.
The most identifiable Hunger Games Mockingjay costume is probably Effie Trinket.
A tightly curled and coiffed hair style of purple, pink, blue or green will get you recognized immediately.
A very pale, washed out complexion and stark red, purple or bright color of lipstick and oversized hair flower complete the look.
