It’s only a few short weeks from Halloween! If you’re going as a Catching Fire character, now is the time to prep! We all know looking your best isn’t always an easy thing, but here’s some tips to help you out!
First off, let’s talk the Catching Fire Arena look. Arena and training gear is the CLASSIC representation of the series, so those who know the series will definitely know what you’re going for!
Depending on your comfort level with spandex, there’s a couple different options here!
First, the more comfy, unisex pants and t-shirt combo:
This one also comes with a sweater option for children, which is nice if you’ve ever experienced Halloween in a region where autumn happens (ICYMI– it’s usually effing freezing.) You can also grab just the shirt.
For the less weary, there’s also the “Hunter Jumpsuit”, as the company trying not to break copyright laws refers to it:
From there, you can customize your character with their weapon of choice!
And if your hair is too short to be hers, there’s always that lovely Katniss “Arena Girl” Wig. Yup, still around!
Want that “burning up the atmosphere” look?
There’s also Cosplay Katniss and Peeta shirts that can be dressed up with some dark pants, though it’s not quite the same effect (and hilariously, the female model is WEARING IT BACKWARDS.)
Unfortunately, there’s one main element to all these things: They’re kinda, sorta, REALLY EXPENSIVE. Which may be fine with you, if you’re big into cosplay or Halloween in general.
For the rest of us.. Believe it or not, it might be easier to be a Capitol citizen. Elizabeth Banks may be in Alexander McQueen, but a big part of Capitol style is that there is no continuity and you can basically make it whatever you want. Go all thrift shop on Halloween’s ass! Get yourself some fabric butterflies and a lavender wig, if you’re crafty! Guys, find yourself an outrageous suit, tack on that glitter fabric paint, grab a blue wig and call yourself Caesar Flickerman!
Really, the possibilities are endless! If you like dressing up for Halloween, it doesn’t have to be a painful experience. Chins up, smiles on!
May The Sizes Be Ever in Your Favor!
