I had friends who came as Cato and Clove and were dressed in weird sewn-together fabric leaves and army colors… I had a couple Effie Trinkets. It was pretty exceptional. People dressed up like tracker jackers. They were like bumble bees, but with huge horns.
Tracker jackers?! I want to dress up as Cinna for the premiere because I can rock that character much better than L.Krav can (should have cast a gay guy!), but I just told Friend Christine & Friend Amy that I’ll go as a giant Cornucopia instead.
That’s called the narrowing of the audience. The movie business has worked very assiduously to discourage you and other intelligent, discerning people from the theater, from the movie theater. They have worked hard to get rid of you, because you don’t go then and buy toys and games.
