Ever the prim and proper hostess is Effie Trinket. Like her fellow Capitol residents she is known for her outrageous fashion in the Hunger Games Trilogy. A woman obsessed with both fame and etiquette, Effie seems to be in a competition with herself in a game of fashion “one-up-man-ship.” What can be a more perfect Halloween DIY than a character whose one outfit is more outrageous than the next?
For our Effie Trinket we mixed a little vintage with some over the top makeup and voila! You just made yourself a quick and easy and “oh so Glamorous…” Effie Trinket! Look out Panem, there’s a new Effie in the Capitol.
- A vintage dress (we opted for royal blue).
- A vintage blazer (our choice was hot pink)
- Flower Hair Clips
- Feather Eyelashes
- A Pink Tutu
- A Grey Wig
- A Makeup kit
- Glitter eyeshadow
- Temporary Tattoos
- Gold Hair spray
- Eyelash glue
To Make Effie Trinket’s Outfit:
Effie’s outfit was a simply DIY -just find some great vintage pieces and then accentuate them with a few eccentricities; we belted a vintage dress and added a pink tutu as a collar.
Take a piece of lace and measure it around your waist and cut to fit. This will form a belt.
Spray the lace gold.
Once the lace is dry add Velcro to each end to secure the belt in place.
To complete the look try a vintage blazer and a vintage dress belted with lace. Don’t forget Effie’s decadent collar which can easily be created with a pink tutu.
Effie’s Hair and Makeup:
Effie’s look is all about the hair and the makeup! For our Effie look we added a lot of glitter and some decadent false lashes.
Start with a bold color on your eyelids like glittery pink. Add pink to the tops of the lids and underneath the eye.
Add a more neutral color to the upper part of the lid.
Outline the eyebrows in a bold yellow glitter.
For the cheeks start out by smudging white on your cheeks from the makeup kit. Smudge red over the white to create a bright rosy pink.
For the lips -paint the entire lip white then focus a bold red in the center of the top and bottom lip.
To finish the look try adding a intricate temporary tattoo across the forehead.
Now the odds are sure to be “ever in your favor”! Let the games begin!
