This homemade costume for girls entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Brooke, the 'Effie Trinket from Hunger Games' costume creator:
My daughter Ashleigh dressed up as Effie Trinket from the Hunger Games. We made her costume by printing out a butterfly image on iron-on transfer paper and applied them to an old black dress. I printed additional butterflies of different sizes, cut them out, pasted them together so they would be double-sided and hot glued them around the collar of the dress. The hairpiece was made by gluing a small black shoulder pad to a hair comb for the base. I then added pieces of wire, stuck through the base and covered with black drink stirrers and hot glued additional butterflies of varying sizes to them. We purchased a wig, black lace gloves, and false eyelashes that were the most expensive pieces of the costume. She added some white tights, black shoes and a black belt. She did her make-up and glued small cut out butterflies to her face and arms for the finishing touches.
