|I love the books, and can't wait for the movie. When I saw this image of the over-dressed, ridiculous perky Effie Trinket with her pink and lavender wigs...I knew it had to be done!|
May the odds be ever in your favour!

Adventures with wigs (Posted 18th March 2012)
Effie's known for her vibrant and often ridiculous wigs, and that's one of the parts I've been looking forward to the most about this costume!
I ordered a short golden blonde wig which came in tight ringleted curls; then washed and straightened it to utterly destroy the curls it was originally in. Then I put an ash blonde toner through it to take down the golden blonde colour into a paler hue and proceeded to give it an old-lady-hair-parlour-style rinse to achieve the lavender blonde colour. Afterwards I painted in some bolder lavender streaks with a tint brush.
It's a very thick wig so it took a while to dry - then I curled it in sections with straighteners, then teased and hairsprayed the hell of it!
I'm very happy with the result and can't wait to wear it!
