Effie Trinket (Lavender brocade) - The Hunger Games (movie)


Amecon 2012




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!

Moved to Amecon as I ran out of time/money to do her justice for Kita

This is actually awesome. A friend of mine wants to do an Effie costume for the Hunger games convention in June.

Yey Effie <3 Brilliant job with the wig! Looking forward to see more :D I hope to do Katniss again for Ame, or a version of her at least. Excellent work on your Game of Thrones costumes at Kita too by the way! ^^

Adventures with wigs

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!
