One of my beefs with The Hunger GamesÂ movie was that despite it moving from first-person to third-person POV, we still didn’t see a ton of the other tributes in the pre-Games portion of the film. We caught glimpses of their interviews and training, sure, but the focus was on KatnissÂ and PeetaÂ as the underdogs from District 12.
One particular sequence I would have liked to spend twice as much time on was the tributes parade after they’ve all traveled to the Capitol. This we see mostly from Katniss’ perspective, as CinnaÂ lights their costumes on fire and they blaze into the hall in a flaming chariot. It’s a breathtaking sequence, but that means we only skim over the other twenty-two tributes’ costumes. Seeing as Cinna makes such a point of emphasizing that each district’s costumes match their livelihoods, it’s an unfortunate omission.
But thanks to some enterprising Hunger GamesÂ fans, we finally get a closer look at the costumes! As far as I can trace it back, Tumblr They’re Not Gonna Pick YouÂ put the photos online first; perhaps they came from one of the movie companion books? Check them out in the gallery below; sorry for the size, but I couldn’t find any larger versions.
