The Best of Hunger Games Halloween

First thing first! Welcome to our newly designed site! We decided it was time for a change, a new look that added some funky fresh levity around these parts– we are a humor site, after all– and something that doesn’t make you nauseous if you’re on the site too long! Kudos to TFGeekGirl for the design!

But there is some bad news– Sadly, one of our favorite nights of the year, Halloween, has come to pass. It’s the only night when it’s perfectly okay to dress up like a huge fangirly geek and act like a total fool in a large crowd of people! We miss it so!

Therefore, we have found some of the best Hunger Games Halloween garb from this year and years past for your viewing pleasure, a few of which came from the official Hunger Games Facebook!

Let’s just start with the Overall Winner, shall we?
Little boy Caesar Flickerman costume The Hunger Games
*Over the continuous chorus of ‘Awwwwww’s* Oh little one! Perhaps your best Halloween has occurred before you’ve even developed a long-term memory, which is a shame! We don’t know where your mommy even managed to scrounge up a shiny blue suit that fit a toddler, but we would like to give her the highest of fives for this achievement. Let’s just hope you don’t develop a costume complex in the future!

Onto an oldie but a goodie, Best Handmade Design!
The Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen Girl on Fire costume
There’s probably somebody out there who now seriously regrets bringing their old wedding dress to that thrift shop, but we cannot feel sympathy for them because the end result is too fantastic: Katniss, mid-transformation between the Capitol wedding dress and Cinna’s Mockingjay dress. Even though it’s only the bottom of the dress, it looks like making that would be a bit painstaking to put together! 10 cookies from Mellark bakery to the lady behind this getup!

When you’re not really sure what you’re doing, just go for the Best False Confidence!
Katniss Everdeen Finnick Odair Halloween Costumes
It takes a lot of cojones to dress up like Panem’s equivalent of the sexist man alive, Finnick Odair, especially with those sandals and the guyliner and the awkwardly burned seaform shorts. But this guy looks like he’s got a rousing chorus of “I’m Sexy and I Know It” pumping through his head as he stands next to Katniss. We don’t know anyone else who could pull that off! Bravo, good sir!

Want to get wild? Check out the Best Take on Capitol Citizens!
The Hunger Games Capitol Citizen Halloween Costumes
Clearly, the girls were WAY more in this than their male companion, who just kind of looks like Willy Wonka. All the same, it’s pretty hardcore to see the Prep Team out and about. People from the Capitol other than Effie need love too! All the points to the woman who was gutsy enough to paint a large portion of her skin green, despite the fact that most people wouldn’t get the reference!

Last but not least, the Best Use of Sports Equipment!
The Hunger Games Child Peacekeeper Costume
Football pads? Baseball helmets? If you’ve ever played sports or know someone who has, you know these things don’t always come cheap, so why not fashion them into pure, unfiltered badassery in your spare time to save extra money?! Add some white clothes and it’s super simple, yet effective! You don’t always have to go crazy to make an impression, after all.

You may have noticed that we didn’t showcase any Effies! It’s not because none of them were great, it’s because this year was a veritable EFFIE EXPLOSION and too many of them were great. Just search “Effie Trinket costume” to see what we mean. Seriously, we could dedicate several posts to that hotness, but then you all may start to judge us.

Until Next Year, Shine On You Crazy Diamonds,
The Girl With The Pearl


  1. I applaud your applause! Sometimes this fandom makes me want to bang my head against the wall, but it’s great to see how creative and artistic so many fans were this Halloween! (Mine was totally spoiled by the “superstorm”, sadly.) As for the new look, since there are three canaries featured on the “masthead”, and three admins for this site, I am very curious as to who each canary represents! 😉

  2. Thank you for putting my son’s picture up here 🙂 I just got a regular toddler’s suit and used Martha Stewart blue glitter fabric paint. The wig was the hard part 😀
