The Hunger Games 2012

So, this year at Fan Expo, me and my friends will be cosplaying characters from "The Hunger Games"!
I am being Katniss Everdeen, my boyfriend is Peeta Mellark, my one friend is Haymitch and we even have a Ceasar! We have one other person in our group that is undecided about his character.

Is anyone else cosplaying The Hunger Games? If so, who are you being?

I'm not going to be cosplaying from the Hunger Games, but my friend will dressing up as Katniss as well! I'm so excited for her as FX 2012 will be her very first convention

I think I'll squeezes in an Effie Trinket or another Captital female look at some point but not this year. lol Catching Fire comes out in November of 2013 and if I'm like they will have more costume photo's posted in time.


I wish I can say I loved the movie but spent most of it with motion sickness because of the camera shaking all the time in the wrong directions all the time. Next time I'll be buying some motion sickness medicine before entering the movie. (pretty bad you have to be drugged to enjoy a movie when the direction decide to EXPERIMENT with filming techniques. )

Okay first off, an Effie Trinket would be fabulous. Second, I TOTALLY feel your pain!! I was sick during the whole thing too : ( I would've understood if they kept a shaky camera for the fighting (my friend told me they didnt want it to be too violent to keep it at a PG rating), but for the whole thing? Daaang.

Anyways, my friends all love the Hunger Games (I'm not into it nearly as much as they are), so I'm sure they'd love to see anyone dressed up from it!

I agree with the shaky camera techniques. My problem was I just couldn't focus and got confused. No motion sickness for me. But I did enjoy them movie.

The camera panning over the fight scenes makes sence (I was expecting PG-13 at least) but every moment the actors were going one way and the camera seem to have the jitters.

My Dad saw it too and couldn't focus either. He hatted the movie for the cinematography as well.

Bourne Ultimatum and Black Swan I was ok with as the camera used the shakiness in scenes rather then style. After this movie ended I ran outside to stretch and breath deeply.

I'm fact everything after the Hunger Games I was fine with on the worst rated for motion sickness. (have not watch The Blair Witch Project though as I knew in advance that it was motion sickness fodder.)

I almost wish that the might try to clean some of the panning up when it goes to DVD/BluRay.


I want to do this outfit but I have not really seen it from below the wait in focus yet. Of Course find the texture will be an issue. The use the same fabric in the Fascinator was well.

My husband plans on wearing his Ceaser cosplay. He wore it for the movie release and everyone loved it. It's one of those twists of fate where he actually looks exactly like the character, once we put a Bumpit and some blue spray in his hair. I have an Effie cosplay, but it's not nearly as strong, so I'm still not sure if I'll wear it.

Ceaser design in the movie was what I imagined in the book. ^_^ Envisioning that in red makes me laugh.

I'd really like to do an Effie Trinket cosplay (reaping outfit from the movie) but I don't know if I'll be able to get it together for this year... but if I did, I'd be really stoked.
