Katniss Wig for $10.70

September 7, 2014

Katniss WigWe are surprised that we have not seen official Hunger Games costumes, and it is forcing everyone to continue to get creative in creating their own costumes.

We found this wig on Amazon called “Rubie’s Costume Adult Contestant Wig.” Obviously they couldn’t come right out and say “Katniss wig,” but it is pretty obvious my calling it a “Contestant Wig.”

Also, in the description it says “Perfect to wear when you’re competing on reality television or just practicing your archery.” Hmmm…do does that sound like?

What do you think? Would this be a a good wig to wear for a Katniss costume? It is reasonably priced at only $10.70 plus free Prime Shipping.

Lots of fun stuff this week for Hunger Games fans. The most exciting news was probably the poster release, but it is also fun to hear from the actors themselves what they have to say about Mockingjay.

Lionsgate finally revealed the first poster featuring Katniss for Mockingjay, through the OLTM mobile app. The image was accompanied with the caption: “Our leader the Mockingjay arrives on 9/10.”

 

It may be a slightly tenuous record – but Lawrence deserves some good news after her recent travails. Katniss is named highest-grossing action movie heroine by Guinness.

 

Mockingjay promises to have some extra Effie scenes for us. Great news for Effie fans! What do you think about the extra Effie scenes added to the movie that were not in the book?

Ahhh so ready for Mockingjay to come out!! Hope you enjoy!!

 

Lorde spoke about the announcement that she’s been put in charge of the Mockingjay soundtrack. Not only will she be singing but she will also be curating the rest of the songs.

 

Natalie Dormer will be turning heads with her portrayal of Cressida in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. Read more about her shaving her head, applying a tattoo to the area, and sporting army gear and a semi-automatic rifle.

 

In the “just for fun” department. Take the quiz and see which District is right for you! Seems a lot of people keep getting District 12.

This was a week full of a lot of exciting Hunger Games news. Plus we added in a few things that we just found funny!

Instructions on the first District 13 hack of the Mockinjay App. Get into Cressida’s Secret Capitol File.

 

New billboards for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 have an extra feature that is cool. Have you seen them around anywhere yet?

 

Change in marketing strategy? “The ‘Rebel Warrior’ pictures is a departure from older Mockingjay marketing. Previous advertisements came from the perspective of The Capitol and its dictator, President Snow, but now Mockingjay symbols are overtaking the propaganda.”

 

Just what we have been waiting to hear! “And there won’t be any major changes from the novel—although Lawrence worked closely with screenwriter Peter Craig, producer Nina Jacobson, and Collins to create new elements that will “surprise even fans of the book.”

 

No IMAX release for Mockingjay Part 1? Read some pretty persuasive research that points to that conclusion.

 

The Star Squad (Gale, Cressida, Boggs, Messalla, Castor and Pollux) have been revealed by District 13 in some brand new character posters!

 

So it’s not really Hunger Games NEWS related, but it does feature two of our favorite guys. Definitely some fun video watching!

 

Stay and fight Mockingjay Parody By Tori Salazar – YouTube
“Are you gonna stay and fight? Some of us won’t last the night.” Fun Mockingjay parody.

mockingjay-teaser-trailerWe’re getting our first look at “Mockingjay” finally! It’s become a thing to release “teaser trailers” about a minute long before the actual trailers are released. Today we got our first look at that teaser trailer for “Mockingjay Part 1.”

A few different characters appear in the trailer including President Snow, Gale, President Alma Coin, and Plutarch Heavensbee. Katniss doesn’t appear until the very end and actually only speaks 4 words “I am. I will”

Seeing Philip Seymore Hoffman in it is a little bit eery. It makes me wonder what the movie will feel like with him in it.

Have you watched the teaser trailer yet? Does it make you excited for the movie release? Too bad we have to wait until November 21!

Lots of Hunger Games news this week! Everyone was talking about the new touring exhibition, the possibility of a theme park, and the new mobile game. Plus, will there be a Hunger Games theme park? What would it look like? And in a case of art crossing with politics, real protesters have taken to using the Hunger Games salute. Here are some of our favorite articles from around the web this week.

Can you imagine a Hunger Games theme park? It might happen! And until then, get set for “The Hunger Games: The Exhibition,” which will tour the US in 2015.

 

‘The Hunger Games’ is becoming a mobile game. Interactive entertainment company Kabam announced Friday that it agreed with film studio Lionsgate to make a title for play on smartphones or tablet computers based on the dystopian books and films.

 

DuPont State Recreational Forest regularly draws fans of the movie, which was filmed there in 2011. Hike, mountain back, or ride horses through over 80 miles of trails.

 

What might be a part of the rumored Hunger Games theme park? Hypable came up with 8 things they do NOT want to see including Subway sponsoring “Peeta’s Bread Factory” and Blueberries mixed with Nightlock.

 

Thailand’s protesters are demonstrating that life can imitate art. Anti-military coup protesters are mimicking the “Hunger Games” three-fingered salute after the country’s army chief Paryuth Chan-ocha declared martial law in late May, Reason reports.
