For Halloween this year, I originally intended on being one of the Spice Girls with some friends. Luckily, they got an idea for a smaller group costume so I could duck out of the group and be one of my favorite book characters ever: the Girl on Fire.
This was a really easy and cheap Halloween costume to make. It cost me approximately $5! Here’s what you need to be Katniss Everdeen:
- A braid (kind of essential)
- A brown shirt that looks kind of rough (got this from Goodwill + I added some cuts to mine with some makeup as “dirt” and “blood”)
- Olive green pants
- Brown boots
- Mockingjay pin (I just printed one off the Internet, but you can find them at Hot Topic)
- Extra credit: a bow and arrow (I saw some tutorials to make one but I ran out of time)
- Makeup wise, I just wore foundation + blush + bronzer + mascara and added some “dirt” (brown eyeshadow) to my face.
Here’s the result! I’ll be wearing this to my Halloween party tonight.
I know I did the finger symbol wrong. I’ll do better tonight at the party!
…and here is the result.
You’ll have to click over to find out how funny I was.
So, I do this thing sometimes, where I get really, really into stuff.
I guess you normals would call it an “obsession”….cause that’s pretty much what it is.
Obsessions that I have had in my lifetime:
Twilight (I am so embarrassed right now. This one is for sure OVER WITH.)
My current obsession?

I know, I’m like a year behind all of the cool hipster Hunger Games fans, but OH MY GOSH. These books may not be high literature, but they have action, a couple twists, funny names, and romance. I will read anything that involves two people who should be together but aren’t. And it’s really refreshing to read a book where the girl isn’t falling all over herself over a dude once he confesses his love. I mean, Katniss has way more important things to worry about, like her sister and, you know, staying alive. Props to you, Everdeen.
SPOILER ALERT FOR MOCKINGJAY BEHIND THE JUMP.
(So help me God, if Katniss and Peeta hadn’t gotten together in the end, I would have thrown my computer across the room (e-book), yelled at my dogs, kicked some stuff, and taken one serious angry nap. And never discussed the Hunger Games again.)
‘the hunger games’ cupcakes.
Still haven’t seen this movie yet, y’all! I know. I know. I’m crazy. These cuppycakes will do the trick, though, right?!
