Though The Hunger Games presence at Comic Con might have been small in relation to other films, the excitement around the books/film was definitely in the air. The pins and posters flew out of Lionsgate’s booth, so much so that yesterday EW named the Mockingjay pin the most essential piece of SWAG from the Con. But that’s not the only thing that was making waves on the Convention floor. Barbara Dillion from Fanboy Comics, chose this year to do her first cosplay and made a splash as none other than Katniss Everdeen,
Although I feared that no one would recognize my Katniss costume, I was overjoyed to find a rabid Hunger Games fan base in attendance! In fact, there were a few other Katniss cosplayers walking the convention floor in various incarnations.
Barbara took some great photos with fans of the series, as well as some fantastic shots of herself. Here are just a few. (click each image to make it larger)
You can see even more of their photos from Comic Con on their Facebook page. The staff at Fanboy Comics also did an audio commentary of their thoughts on The Hunger Games and Barbara’s thoughts on her Katniss cosplay at the Con, and you can listen to it here.
The site is also doing their own Comic Con Giveaway, so be sure to check back on their site later this week for details.
UPDATE: Fanboy Comics has now released details of their Hunger Games Giveaway. Check out their site to find out how to enter.
Thank you so much to Barbara and Fanboy Comics for letting us know about their experiences at Comic Con.
