Also included in the catalogue are some Catching Fire related items (click to enlarge):

From Jim Tyson (costume supervisor):
"The Hero jacket from The Hunger Games was reused and also became the Hero jacket in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The jacket was altered to better fit Jennifer Lawrence and was reconditioned to make the leather softer."
"Because this pair of boots fit Jennifer Lawrence best they were the pair chosen to be used again in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" 

Woody Harrelson liked his vegan boots so much, he asked for them to be used in Catching Fire 
and Mockingjay too! Those "slip resistant pads" must have been good in avoiding icy slips..

Every costume you can think of from The Hunger Games movie is available, so why not pick your favourite(s) and place a bid. You never know...

Thanks to The Hob for the tip!
