Effie Trinket, the escort of the District 12 tributes, including Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark, is a character with costuming beyond life. Her fun, colorful, quirky ensembles make for great costumes. The talented designers at Etsy have created these wonderful Effie-inspired pieces for you to enjoy.
This hand-stitched butterfly dress is inspired by the one-and-only Effie's outfit during the Quarter Quell reaping. The attire comes with gloves, and the infamous butterfly hat. Available at purpleseed, for $450.00 and is custom made to order.
The first reaping is where Effie was introduced to us as a character. Her whimsical suit is the first glimpse we get to see of The Capitol, in contrast to the dull, bland colors of District 12. ncluded in this costume are: jacket, skirt, neck piece, wig, and flower clip. You can purchase it at at Deconstructress shop here for $750.00
Katniss Everdeen, the heroine of The Hunger Games, dresses a bit more conservatively than Effie Trinket. Wool, dark colors, and comfort are the name of the game, and these pieces are a bit more wearable than her escort's couture.
Katniss' hunting cowl was worn in the opening scene of Hunger Games: Catching Fire. She wears it over her father's hunting jacket when meeting Gale in the woods. According to asoutherndaughter:
This pattern is very similar to the cross body cowl worn by Katniss is "Catching Fire". Her's was a beige/grey but you can have one in a variety of colors.
Last, but not least, Katniss' chariot costume from The Hunger Games, was definitely head turning, especially to those at The Capitol. It was the first introduction to the Girl on Fire. Writes creator, RetroSewCo,

Embedded in the small shiny scales are tiny multi-color specks that catch and reflect the light as if lit from within. This snug fitting corset-styled tunic has a zip front and lightly boned seams with decorative top-stitching. The neckline features a large pointed collar that can stand up or lie flat and the long sleeves have exaggerated bell-shaped cuffs and pointed shoulder epaulettes like the movie costume.
May the odds be ever in your fashion favor!
