5 Things You Should Know About The Hunger Games Costume Tour

We've got quite a year ahead of us, Hunger Games fans! Catching Fire buzz has just now begun, (not to mention award season) and we are getting crazy excited for it all. But there is one event that is happening all throughout this next year and we DO NOT want you to miss it. The Hunger Games costumes are going on a nationwide tour, ending in an auction at New York Comic Con. Last Saturday we saw a sneak preview of the costumes at The Hollywood Show, which really got us excited for this tour.

So what's new this time around? We got an even bigger sneak peek at what's to come in this costume tour, so here are our FIVE things you should know about Blacksparrow Auction's Hunger Games Costume Tour:

Katniss' final interview dress!
1. Blacksparrow Auctions has ALL the costumes from the first film. Every tour stop will have about 10-20 costumes, but know that they are choosing from literally EVERYTHING.

2. The AMAZING detail. Folks, there are things about these costumes that you can't even hope to notice on film. They are detailed in ways that are indeed true to the books, and some even in ways you did not expect.

3. I'm sure you are thinking that you probably aren't going to be able to own a piece of the first Hunger Games film because dude, you're not a millionaire. WRONG! This auction will have something for everyone. They are not auctioning off just a few outfits, but the whole shebang. Odds are (see what I did there?) you can probably get your hands on something for a decent price.

4. More stops are likely to be announced in the future! Don't give up hope if you don't live near any of the cities already signed up for the costume tour.

5. This is a one time opportunity! These costumes are going for auction and they'll likely never be seen again. To be in the presence of these finely crafted costumes is unreal. If you have the chance to see this, we highly recommend you take it.
