Last night I was fortunate enough to nab tickets to the 8:00pm showing of Catching Fire at Tinseltown. As we walked into the theater we were surprised--there was no line, the theater was half empty, and while everyone was very excited to watch Louisville's own Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, there wasn't the frothing crowd I expected. But when we exited the theater after the movie (it was AMAZING. Stay tuned for Louisville.com's review on Monday) this is the sight that greeted us:
Yes, those people were all in line for the midnight showing of Catching Fire! And so were all these people:
There were a few incredibly good costumes, including this ultra-cute Effie Trinket:
She was fabulous.
This lovely lady went as a Capitol citizen, complete with ultra sparkly dress and eye makeup:
And my personal favorite costume was this young lady, as Katniss in her wedding dress mid-transformation:
For those of you who haven't seen the movie or the trailer, Katniss wears a wedding gown that catches on fire when she twirls:
For the next midnight premier, I'm going to dress up as Haymitch Abernathy (Katniss's ever-drunk mentor). So basically I'm going to bring a bottle of whiskey to the theater and pretend it's part of my costume.
Did you see any good costumes at the midnight showings last night? Tweet us  or leave it in the comments!
