Geek Fashion: Dress Like A Tribute

After a wildly successful opening weekend, it looks like The Hunger Games will be sticking around for a while. Lucky for us, many of the characters/costumes in the movie are pretty easy to recreate (especially since they didn’t take the Capitol people to the level of body paint and whiskers).

NECA (National Entertainment Collectibles Association) has come out with some great Tribute/arena gear that could easily take you from cosplaying at a convention to your local gym without anyone batting an eye.

Which character are you wanting to cosplay as, now that you’ve seen the movie?


  1. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I love these! Though I’m pretty sure I’d rather buy her pre-game dresses…

  2. Agreed! I really want her red dress.

    District 12’s tribute training shirt looks pretty preppy. The additional hood give it a bit of functionality. I just hope they wouldn’t do something like prom dresses long island that will look like the previous shirts.
