During the first Hunger Games, Katniss hallucinates under the influence of tracker-jacker venom/stings.

She recalls her father's death and then there is a scene with her mother.

I'm curious why Katniss Everdeen was wearing her games/arena outfit in the scene with her mother.

  • Some context here would be useful. Which movie are we talking about and which scene?

Because it's a hallucination not an actual memory.

Obviously, the audience needs to understand that she's not really talking to her mother here...she's still affected by the tracker-jacker venom and leaving her in her arena outfit helps us understand that.
