Katniss Everdeen Recap

In 2011, I dorked out severely, and dressed up as a character from a book for Halloween. At the time, my costume was questioned by almost everyone. Those that recognized “Katniss” gave me the ol’ nerd nod.
Okay, I made that up. Maybe it was more of a high five.
Obviously now, Katniss Everdeen is the well known character of Hunger Games, the movie…and this post has been getting quite a few hits. Why? ‘Tis the year of the Katniss Kostume!
So I figured I’d break it down for y’all.

-The jacket is the only piece I actually owned. I bought it in 2007 at Nordstrom. Obviously a more accurate one, based off movie Katniss, would be some sort of black windbreaker.
-Mockingjay pin I ordered with a book set from Scholastic. They are all over the place now. Hot Topic perhaps?
-Shirt, pants, and belt are from a little mall boutique. Something along the lines of Agaci or Forever 21.
-Boots are Guess from a department store.
-Bow and arrow are from a costume warehouse – Frankel in downtown Houston.
-“Dirt” is brown eyeshadow.
-Hair…mine. Those are some mad crazy side braid skills, eh?

That’s the gist! If you decide to be Katniss for Halloween, may the odds be ever in your favor.

Sorry, I had to. ๐Ÿ™‚




  1. I actually prefer the leather jacket to the windbreaker. I think this costume is Katniss before getting in the games like just happily hunting in the woods with Gale. ๐Ÿ™‚ Very nice job! I really do love this costume. Makes me want to reread the trilogy again! ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. I love that you dressed up as her last year! Good on you for being so ahead of the times! Well done with the costume! Really does look perfect!
