Katniss Everdeen Costume For Kids

Updated on October 3, 2015

Dress Up Like Katniss Everdeen For Halloween

Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games is one of the hottest heroes around this year. Many girls consider her a great role model and want to dress up like her for Halloween, or even just for fun.

Welcome to Katniss Everdeen Costume For Kids! I have put together some resources to help you put together the perfect Katniss Everdeen costume for girls sizes 7-14.

If you are a teenager or woman interested in dressing up as Katniss check out Katniss Everdeen Costume for clothes, ideas, and character photos.

I am also showcasing Catching Fire Costumes for kids. They look great and they are perfect for fans that can't wait for the next movie. Keep reading to check them out.

Click the thumbnail to see a larger photo. This is a sweet shot of a fairly calm moment in the games. You get a good view of the boots. None of the boots I have suggested look exactly like this, but I think any of them are a great option.

Click the thumbnail to see the photo. This is a good view of the jacket worn in the arena. Since the official jacket is only in adults sizes, you will need to create your own with a black jacket, orange, and gray duct tape. Use the photo as a guide of were to put the tape.

A good reference for Katniss's arena clothes is from the new Katniss Everdeen Doll available from Mattel. If you zoom into the photo of the doll you can see a lot of the outfit details. Mattel did a good job of replicating the arena costume.

Katniss Costume Poll

This page features the items needed for a Katniss Arena costume. I'd like to add more of the different Katniss outfits if girls are interested. In my Katniss Everdeen Costume page it seems like the arena costume is the most popular one. Check out the page for ideas on other looks.


Which Katniss costume would you most like to dress up in?

In The Hunger Games book Katniss and other other tributes wear a khaki pant. In the movie, they are wearing an olive green cargo pant. That makes more sense to me from a camouflage standpoint. You can choose either for your costume. These two pants shown are both good options. Olive leggings, jeggings, or Dockers style pants would also work.

The official Katniss Everdeen arena jacket is unlikely to fit most children, even at the smallest sizes. It should work fine for teenagers. The best option is either to wear a plain, black jacket, or to use colored duct tape to achieve the look of the arena jacket. Using photos of Katniss you should be able to reconstruct a passable likeness of the jacket. You can vary the type of jacket depending on the weather in your area. Costumes for kids with jackets are always helpful!

A black t-shirt should be worn under the jacket. Of all the items for the Katniss costume this one is probably the most flexible. Either long or short sleeves will work fine, and the shirt can even be embellished if the coat is going to worn all the time. It is likely something can be found already in the closet! If not, this item is easily re-used as regular clothing following Halloween.

For me the Mockingjay pin is a must-have. I have one and really love it. It looks very authentic and it is such a great symbol of Katniss and the movie.

Really any footwear would work but boots really make the outfit and add a great touch to make it look authentic. Besides, they are super cute and can be worn any time.

This is a great first bow set for a girl or boy. If you want something that looks authentic, but can also be used for archery then this would be a great choice.

The first bow and arrow set I selected is an actual archery sets for beginning archers. It would be a great purchase for a responsible kid, especially one that is interested in learning archery. The prices on the set is pretty reasonable. The last choice is a toy bow and arrow set with suction cup arrows. This is perfect for very young kids, or those interested in the bow and arrow set strictly as a costume prop. If taken care of, the toy bow and arrow set can be re-used for other kinds of archery costumes for either a boy or girl. It is actually for a Merida costume from the movie Brave, but it works great for the Hunger Games. This would also be a great choice for taking to a school, movie theater, or other public place where people might be concerned about a real bow and arrow set.

More Accessories

Both the arrow quiver and the shooting glove are great additions to the costume, especially if you've invested in a real bow and arrow set. They not only look great for costuming purposes, but they'd be useful for archery.

If you are lucky enough to have long brown hair, or long hair of any color really, check out the video tutorials below on how to create Katniss's beautiful braids.

If not, I highly recommend buying a wig to complete your costume look.

      @anonymous: I don't set the prices unfortunately. Try finding clothes from Goodwill or Salvation Army that are similar to the ones on the page. Good luck.

      @anonymous: I think more ppl are likely to dress up as Katniss, so if you want to be more unique you could dress up as Effie. If you love makeup that is also a great choice for that reason. Either one is great, though. If you decide to be Katniss one arrow on the bow should be enough, at least unless you plan on shooting it :)

      @anonymous: If you mean the hair braids on the wigs, then yes. They are pre-styled that way.
