Make Katniss Everdeen’s Wedding Dress for Ten Dollars
Katniss Everdeen has to put on a show for the Capitol in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and pretend she’s preparing to marry Peeta. Her stylist Cinna creates a stunning wedding dress to show off to Panem, and YouTuber Koalipops re-created the dress for only $10! He has a series of videos with $5 costumes, but the extra $5 made a big difference with this dress. Koalipops and his friends went to the 99 Cents Store and purchased ten items. Their purchases included tissue paper, white plastic tableclothes, and snowflakes. He used some other items he already owned to fill it out. Watch the video to see how the final look comes together:
It’s not the sturdiest of costumes, but it looks lovely and would be great for a single wearing.
