With the final installment of The Hunger Games here, we’re about to have a Mockingjay-sized hole in our hearts. What are we supposed to do without a new Hunger Games movie to look forward to? But before you get too sad, singing a mournful round of “The Hanging Tree”, let’s focus on our excitement of Mockingjay Part II finally hitting theaters. Whether you’re seeing the movie at a midnight showing, you’re seeing it the next day, or you’re waiting a bit, you’ve got to dress for the occasion. While you can go all out and rock some awesome Effie Trinket or Caesar Flickerman cosplay, maybe you want to keep things more chill when you go to bid adieu to Katniss and her fellow District 13 rebels. I’ve got you covered with some solid everyday cosplay outfits, inspired by some of our faves from The Hunger Games series. May the cosplay odds be ever in your favor.
Haymitch’s style is easily somewhere between “sleepy college student” and “hungover and hating life”. Actually, knowing Haymitch’s story, that “hungover and hating life” thing is pretty spot on… Regardless, Haymitch’s style isn’t one of flash. It’s definitely a style focused on comfort and convenience, which is perfect for standing in a long line outside of a movie theater.
Now that our faves are fighting the good fight against the Capitol, they’re clothes are reflecting that change. Most of the characters in Mockingjay Part II are dressed in rebel soldier outfits, so this basic black look can easily work for Peeta or Gale. Of course, if you want to make sure people know whether you’re representing #TeamPeeta or #TeamGale, you can have a crazed look in your eye and play “real or not real” for Peeta, and have a revenge-hungry look in your eye and mutter plans about revolution and silver parachutes for Gale.
You can’t have a Hunger Games post without mentioning the Mockingjay herself, right? Channel her rebel style with this all-black getup (and a mockingjay pin to match, because of course). Extra points for implementing the Katniss braid. Just be sure to practice your Mockingjay call, and keep your distance from anyone cosplaying Peeta…
