PictureKatniss, Effie, District 12, District 1
     It’s that time of year again, when kids dress up as their favorite cartoon character or something scary like a zombie or clown – shivers! Now it can get awkward when you have this great costume idea that you can’t wait for people to see, but then when they do, they ask, “What are you supposed to be?”

            This year my suite mates and a couple of other friends decided to dress as the representatives from each district in the Hunger Games, along with Effie Trinket, the escort of the tributes of District 12. We had great ideas for each and were super excited about them. Well, lo and behold, several of our friends either couldn’t do it or decided not to go, so we were left with District 1, District 12, Effie, and Katniss. When we were all together you could see what we were trying to do, but if we didn’t stay together, the one dressed as Effie was the only one who looked discernible as her character. Several times at our school’s Monster Mash Halloween party I was asked if I was a princess, a goddess, or an angel. I had to explain many times that I was representing District 1, the luxury district of Panem

            Key note for your next Halloween costume idea: make sure that, if you have a group costume idea, all commit to being at the party! Otherwise, you may feel totesawk and...disappointed.

            Have you had any embarrassing or disappointing experiences with Halloween, either from costume confusion or just awkward situations in general?
