If you like to dress up and want to go as something quite original this year, why not take a cue from Effie Trinket from the Hunger Games movie? While the main characters Katniss and Gale are dressed quite plainly, you can have a ball going as Effie pictured here. Effie Trinkey is played by actress Elizabeth Banks though you wouldn’t know it with all that heavy makeup. It’s a fun one for sure and is instantly recognizable for anyone who has seen the movie. The Effie Trinkey costume uses a very frilly dark pink dress with ribbed skirt and very puffy shoulds. The dress is quite intricate as she is quite dressy in that her top is like a business woman’s suit. She wears a black turtle neck underneath and you can embellish it with a small batch of pink roses. Her hair is a very light pink and a very large dark rose is displayed prominantly on her coif. The makeup is quite extreme too: you’ll have to whiten your face nearly completely. This step can be optional since the Effie costume is already quite ostentatious and recognizable.
