Katniss Everdeen is the next big thing since Harry Potter, so you are sure to thrill with one of any Hunger Games Halloween Costumes. Katniss costumes are easy to customize to make each one your own.
Catching Fire Katniss Costume
After the original Hunger Games, there was Catching Fire. Katniss Everdeen’s sleek jumpsuit from the movie is available as a one-piece Hunger Games Halloween costume with knee pads. The long sleeves end with a stylish thumb loop to keep it in place, meaning this costume can be worn with or without gloves. However, this costume is perfect for accessories, and a lovely three-fingered archery glove is available to match for both women and tween costumes.
You’ll also need Katniss’s iconic mockingjay pin to make this costume instantly recognizable. The pin only comes in black, but if you want to make your Hunger Games Halloween costume look exactly like the movie, a quick visit to a craft store for some gold paint is all you need. You will also need your own shoes, which gives you the opportunity to wear your own or buy black shoes or boots that you can wear any day of the year. Combat boots are an excellent choice for authenticity, but black running shoes will work in your favor for comfort. The Katniss Catching Fire Halloween costume is available in women’s and tween sizes.
Mockingjay Part 1 Katniss Costume
After Catching Fire, there was Mockingjay Part 1. The Hunger Games Halloween costume for Katniss Everdeen’s outfit in Mockingjay is a one-piece jumpsuit with padded torso armor, knee pads, shin pads, and an attached mockingjay pin. The shoulder and torso pads are intricately detailed and are part of what makes Katniss appear so strong and powerful in the film. Again, black shoes and an archer’s glove would match perfectly with this costume. For even more accessories, a costume bow will make sure you are recognized instantly. There is even an official Hunger Games quiver to go with it. Mockingjay Part 1 costumes also come in tween and women’s sizes.
An important part of any Hunger Games Halloween costume will be Katniss’s long, brunette braid. If you don’t sport long, brown hair yourself, you can buy a plain brunette wig and braid it yourself. There are no official Katniss wigs, but a few wigs have cropped up that are pre-braided as well, so buy one for a perfect addition to your Hunger Games Halloween costume. You could even cut the wig a bit (if you feel comfortable) to create the wisps of hair that frame Katniss’s face.
If you’re looking for couples costumes, Peeta’s outfits from any movie are easy to recreate. A black leather jacket, black pants and a black shirt match his attire from the first movie. A Catching Fire jumpsuit would be difficult to DIY, but a white suit with a white shirt and gelled hair from Mockingjay Part 1 is an easy Hunger Games Halloween costume that anyone can replicate.
With one movie still to come later this year, a Katniss Everdeen costume this Halloween will be very on point. Then perhaps it can double as a costume for opening night of the movie. Either way, you’re sure to have fun this Halloween as Katniss Everdeen. In a Hunger Games Halloween costume, you can liberate your friends from an oppressive regime and be the icon your people need. Serious.
