Theme Park connection starts to clean up its Hunger Games auctions

Well Im very pleased to announce that due to the volume of emails and phone calls Theme Park Connection has had
it looks like they have started pulling items and relisting them.

Paul Wintner, a trust member of the prop community relayed to me he had been in contact with Brian and that things had started to be
altered from there end as of today. Looking at the auctions and my own personal records it seems the Katniss reaping costume has been
ended early

I also wrote up a piece for the movie prop forum about this piece. Here is a copy of that information.

reaping costume

Firstly it looks like the reaping dress was pulled and retitled

1: first listed as

HUNGER GAMES Jennifer Lawrence Worn KATNISS Reaping Dress Original Movie Costume

I’ve highlighted worn as that has been removed

2: Second listed as

HUNGER GAMES Jennifer Lawrence KATNISS Reaping Dress Original Movie Costume

Both titles used a different subheading

1: 100% AUTHENTIC ORIGINAL SCREEN WORN MOVIE COSTUME

2: 100% AUTHENTIC ORIGINAL PRODUCTION USED MOVIE

The main body of the text still says in the listing

1:This costume was worn by actor Jennifer Lawrence in her role as heroic District 12 Tribute in the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen!◾This blue reaping dress was worn during the iconic scene where Katniss volunteered as tribute to take her sister’s place in The Hunger Games

2: This costume was worn by actor Jennifer Lawrence in her role as heroic District 12 Tribute in the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen!◾Katniss wore her blue reaping dress during the iconic scene where she volunteered as tribute to take her sister’s place in The Hunger Games

◾So fine…I see some changes made buts its still confusing and misleading. In other words its a get out of jail clause.


Sill says this further down:

One of the key characters in The Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen is the District 12 female Tribute in the 74th Hunger Games◾As played in the film by Jennifer Lawrence, the story centers around Katniss as she takes her sister’s place in the annual Hunger Games competition

◾This costume is featured prominently in the film in key scenes including Katniss volunteering as tribute


I highlighted this again to show that the wording is just atrocious. So we have basically gone from a hero piece to a production used piece…..to a “prominently used piece”……

So yes changes have been made but I think its only gone to muddle the original intent and now the listing really makes no sense.

Now this Arena shirt was listed yesterday and they did a great job.

katniss shirt

Correct heading, stunt shirt, everything. Perfect.

The same goes with a lot of items going up including production made but unused examples of various costumes. This is how to present the stuff. Much better.

We will keep you updated including prices as the items finish this week. Just remember if you are bidding on this auction they have over 1000 pieces so there are many multiples, check the listings carefully and if in doubt ask. There is NOTHING ever wrong with wanting to know what your spending your hard earned money on.
