Effie's Large Flower Headband
For this project, all I needed was some purple felt, a small fake flower, and a string of pink yarn. I cut out some felt petals (the largest took up just over a half sheet of felt, and then got smaller from there). I cut small slits on the inside of the petals and hot glued them around in a circle, with the smaller petals going over the larger ones as shown. Then I finished it off by gluing a small fake flower to the middle, and then cut small holes in the back to loop through one strand of pink yarn. I tied it around my pink wig and was all set!
Effie's Flower Collar
For this one, I used a half a sheet of black felt , velcro, and fake pink and purple flowers. I glued the fake flowers to one half of the felt, using mostly purple ones and just a few pink ones. Then I attached the velcro strips to the back of the collar. Voila!
For the rest of the costume, I bought a Marie Antoinette wig online, wore a purple collared shirt and pencil skirt, and I cut the sleeves off a long-sleeved purple shirt and stuffed it with other shirts to make the large shoulders. I covered my face in light powder and concealer and used pink eyeliner. I found a clear fishbowl at a thrift store and wrote "Primrose Everdeen" and "Peeta Mellark" on all the slips of paper inside.
It was such a fun costume! There were a bunch of other awesome costumes that my friends made so I'll share a few of them later today. Happy Hunger Games!
