Halloween Inspiration Board: Tris From Divergent

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / October 21, 2013

The Hunger Games is sooooooo last year, you guys. This year’s dystopian young adult series that older folks are late to the party on is Divergent by Veronica Roth. The books — there are two out, with a third hitting shelves in a few weeks — are being made into a movie series starring Shailene Woodley as Tris, the teenager born into the Abnegation faction (known for their selflessness) who decides to transfer to Dauntless (known for their bravery). Dressing up as Tris for Halloween simply requires a tough-meets-sexy all black wardrobe (a nice change from Abnegation’s dull grey style), comfy shoes (for jumping from trains, natch), and a few key fake tattoos — the three ravens on the collar bone representing Tris’ mother, father and brother, as well as the symbols for Abnegation and Dauntless on the shoulder blades. Get the details on the costume above, after the jump!
