It'll make sense next year after the movie comes out

I dressed up like Katniss Everdeen for Halloween. You know. The heroine from The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins. If you don't know her, it's cool. Nobody else did either. Whatevs. The movie will come out and everyone will dress as her next year.

Until then, know that she's the badass in a dystopian future situation and she rocks a bow and arrow. For some weird reason, my two colleagues and I decided to wear Katniss Everdeen costumes. Here's a picture of us. That's Katie on the left and Heather on the right. They are twenty years younger than me and it all seems ten thousand times more appropriate on them. Still, all of it is thrifted!

The best part? Heather added a totally perfectly topically wonderful sign to her costume. See it up there on the right? Occupy the Capitol! (The Capitol is the big bad in The Hunger Games). I know! Awesometimes! But then...check out the other side:

I have such creative envy of this brilliance.

  1. Collins writes a series for younger readers (beloved son is 9) about Gregor the Overlander and his journeys to the Underworld. Good guys: Bats and Humans, Marginal Guys: Spinners (Giant Spiders) and Crawlers (Giant Cockroaches), Bad Guys: Rats (also, giant). Excellent books! Made us cry at the end of book one.
