The Hunger Games Costumes at the Hollywood Show

Hope everyone is having a fantastic fall so far. A few weeks ago, my dad and I made a trip up to the Hollywood Show to see The Hunger Games costumes on display before they go up on the auction block. They displayed some of the most prominent costumes worn by Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, and Woody Harrelson.

Here are some of the pictures taken by my dad.

 The famous 'Girl on Fire' dress. This dress cost $25,000 to make, since the bottom hem of the skirt was created with Swarovski crystals.

 Caesar Flickerman and Claudius Templesmith suits

 Reaping Day outfits for Peeta and Katniss. Pink suit is Effie Trinket's outfit for Reaping Day and the white suit is the Peacekeeper's uniform.

 Katniss' nightgown and Haymitch's suit

 Katniss' arena outfit

 Katniss' hunting outfit

 Capitol apartment outfits

 Victory outfits

Peeta's Baking outfit

Pictures couldn't do the costumes justice. The fire dress had a second layer of ruffles with crystal work underneath the top layer and they are only visible when the wearer spins in a circle. Apparently the costume designer, who is known for giving Harry Potter his trademark round glasses, had a very limited budget to work with for costumes but she did an excellent job with what she had. :)
