How to Dress up As Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games)

Hunger Games Archer Jacket
Adult Hunger Games
District 12 Costume
Just saw Catching Fire and realized I still don't have a post on this site for cosplaying as Katniss Everdeen! Well, I had to sort that out right away. Its a very easy and iconic look to pull off. If you want Katniss' standard look (the most famous), then just pick up the jacket above and combine it with a black v-neck t-shirt and some black or green cargo pants. Easy as that!

Hunger Games
Mockingjay Costume
Alternatively, you can go for one of her training outfits. On the right is the Training Days outfits from the original Hunger Games movie.

Costumes for the later movies are also not available only - her bad-ass Mockingjay armour is one of my favourites and you can find an excellent replica on the left. Her jumpsuit from the Hunger Games in Catching Fire is also available right here.

Next up you'll want to style your hair to match. If you have long brown hair I recommend checking out the video tutorial below and doing up your hair yourself as its a very easy look to do at home even if you don't have much experience with hair. If you don't have the right hair color or length, don't worry, there's a wig you can use instead, featured here.

There's a few fun accessories for a Katniss costume that I recommend having too. Don't forget to pick up a bow and a cute mockingjay pin to finish off the look. If you really want to go all out, you can check out this replica sack from the games.

So there you have it, everything you need to dress up as Katniss Everdeen for Halloween, a convention or just for all year-round partying. Hope you have a lot of fun!
