When the word “sleepover” comes up, manicures, pillow fights, and horror movies often come to mind. However, when throwing a sleepover, it’s nice to go beyond the usual fanfare and add a little flair to the night. For many of us YA fans, any way we can incorporate our latest favorite books and characters into our day to day activities and events is often a welcome combination. Today, for Hunger Games fans, Ultimate YA presents a couple of tips and suggestions to make your next sleepover much more noteworthy by giving it a special Hunger Games twist.
For the first half of your sleepover, make Cinna proud and invite your friends to dress up in their best Capitol-inspired outfits or their best Tribute-inspired outfits. Give your more dressy friends the chance to pull out all of the stops! Bright and neon colored clothes! Hairpieces and flowers! Wigs, too, if they feel like going the extra mile! For your guests that prefer a more subtle look, ask them to channel Katniss and the other tributes and dress up in their track suits, black windbreakers, and boots.
For the second half, when everyone changes into their pajamas, wow your friends with Hunger Games pajamas! CafePress has several styles available. For those on Team Peeta, the “I <3 Peeta” shirts are a must. And for Effie fans, there’s a great “May the odds be ever in your favor” pajama set!
What do you do when you’ve not only lost your best friend, but also the guy you wanted to marry? Not only did you lose him, but you lost him to suicide. When will you ever find joy again?
