This Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games costume cost a total of $10 to make, it’s amazing what you can find in you own house, I decided to do Effie Trinket because I need something colorful and fun. I started with a old jacked then started to visualize. I had an old Santa Clause wig (any white wig will do). I cut it short, with a curly tail in the back, had some old Halloween spray (purple) to give the hair a purple tint look.
knew I had to get a puff look for the shoulders so I went to my local thrift store and purchased a $3 dollar 80’s prom dress, it was perfect!!! First I cut the bottom, and left about 3 inches around the waist and left the bow on back. The dress was a little small so pulled the back zipper down and cut a straight line up the front of the dress. I placed the dress around the jacket as I had it on to fit my body, then took hot glue to pin point where the dress need to be sewed, as I only sewed on shoulders points and along the front to where the buttons are lined, sewing makes it secured, any loose ends I touched up with fabrice glue or hot glue.
As for the accessories, I glued a flower on a head band that was big enough to stretch around my head. As for the gloves/head piece, I had from old costumes, added a black knee length skirt and any pumps or boots. As for the make up, I purchased lashes, $6, and watched a make tutorial on how to do Effie trinkets make up with my own flair.
This was a very fun costume, hope you like it. PS always save your old costumes , you can always use something from them.
