I'm doing Glimmer for LFCC this year. Am really short on cash so am having to find the nearest matches I can on ebay at the moment. =)

I want to do Glimmer eventually as well. But probably more of a book version (I liked the description of the District 1 tributes being painted silver for the Opening Ceremonies). Though I really loved her fishtail braids. :D

4 hours shows dedication to her cosplay. and i for one am amazed at how accurate moonflower is on her costumes. her Amy Pond costumes are spot on (which is important when its a simple outfit/regular looking clothing) and her training outfit katniss looks great. that wig is so well done! so 4 hours dosn't equal no life, it equals a really impressive costume.

Eh, just ignore Grapes. That kid has been trolling moonflower in other threads as well.

anybody have any good ideas for some cheep tribute boots? I know the Banddit ones by steve madden have been popular but they're a bit expensive for me.

Eeeee, finally saw the movie. I am so in love with Effie's pink suit! Time will tell if I can get around to it...WANT!

This thread has been VERY helpful! Thanks a bunch to you all! :heart:

Though, I had a quick question: What kind of wig is everyone using for their Katniss costumes? I've been trying to find somewhere that sells full Lace Front wig (With lace in both front and back and it at a reasonable price), but haven't have much luck.

Any help or tips would be GREATLY appreciated!

Mine's not based on the movie, but I just got a long dark brown wig with some long bangs and braided it down the back. I don't really see the need to have a lace front wig for it (especially one with lace in the back. I didn't even know they had those, but I bet it would be expensive, anyways).

#26 alpha_helix on 7 years ago

The make full lace wigs that are glued or taped to the head instead of pinned to the wearers hair. These are meant to either be a very realistic prosthetic for people who have lost their hair due to chemo or other medical reasons, or are used for high budget films as they cost a couple hundred dollars.

Anyway, I'm a wig noob and haven't attempted them myself, but I do know that with patience you can make you own lace front (and thus lace sides and back!), also, if keeping baby hairs on the back of your head contained is a concern, you can add a few extra wefts in the back, or also cut 'em short to give the wig its very own baby hair. Or, you could get your hair stylist to shave a little off of your back hairline--totally unnoticeable if your hair is longer than your chin, but makes a big difference in a wig.

Yeah...I have a super low back hairline, so I think about these things a lot.

i got a lace front wig, but mine has a normal wig back and I love it. i braided it the same way as the film, cut the bangs into it, and it looks really natural on.

It looks like there's going to be a lot of Hunger Games at Dragon*Con! I've never been there, but if there's Hunger Games and cosplaying, count me in! :D I'll definitely want to cosplay Katniss, either Hunting, Training, or Arena depending on my time and money. What day is Dragon*Con this year?

It's in atlanta, over labor day weekend. but if you're planning on going and you're not local, you're going to want to book a hotel room asap. all of the main hotels sold out months ago, and the ones around them are mostly sold out too, but there's a few farther away that might still have rooms. it's definitely an awesome con.
