I was Effie Trinket for Halloween
I made my own Hunger Games Christmas Tree ornaments
I drove to Washington, DC to see Suzanne Collins at the National Book Festival
My friends and I shot our own version of the games in the backyard
And more of our own HG
And even more
We came up with a playlist
And a potential cast list
And we wrote HG themed haiku
And cried like a baby at the end of Mockingjay
It's safe to say I really love these books. So, obviously, I've been dying for the movie to come out and Bestie and I, along with some other plans, had big plans for costuming. We bought out tickets early and last night we all got together to enjoy the movie and dress ourselves up.
As far as the movie itself goes, I'm just going to say that I loved it. I'm sure you can find a TON of reviews analyzing every aspect of it, but I'm not going to go through all that on here. I thought it was perfect. If you somehow managed not to go at midnight last night, GO NOW!
