Dress to kill

And talking about rebellions... David Bowie's song came to my mind...

"Rebel Rebel, you've torn your dress

Rebel Rebel, your face is a mess..."

Just loved the costumes from all the Hunger Games movies series, especially the Mockingjay outfit Katniss wears in battle.

"Revolutions often come with a uniform, from the pantalons of the French sans-culottes to Che Guevara’s military fatigues. So when Katniss Everdeen joins the uprising in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1, she has to dress the part." TIME

The sketches were made for the movie and they appear in one scene and that's how it caught my attention.

"Design team Kurt and Bart say they took inspiration from the armor collection at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as historical depictions of Joan of Arc. The result is this sketchbook, depicted in the film as belonging to Katniss’s stylist, Cinna." Time

"The designers say creating the outfit through that character’s eyes was a helpful approach to the process. “He knew [Katniss] was to become not only an actual on-the-ground leader of a rebellion,” says Kurt, “but also the symbol of the revolution. Symbol and soldier was our mantra.” Time

About "The Hunger Games" costumes designers:
"Judianna Makovsky (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) handled the first film in 2012, and Trish Summerville (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Gone Girl) was responsible for the elaborate, runway-ready looks in 2013’s Catching Fire. But for the series’ final installment, director Francis Lawrence went with design team Kurt and Bart, whose previous credits include Dallas Buyers Club and Stoker.
They had their work cut out for them, since Mockingjay: Part 1 and 2 represent the darkest and most austere chapter of the trilogy." Mtv

* Rebel, rebel... waiting for "Mockingjay - part 2" ... #Unite

Happy Hunger Games!!

Yes ... happy! If "The Hunger Games" was a Disney movie, of course it would be about the story of an enchanted princess with a happy ending ...

Have you ever stopped to think about it?! Of course not, right?! ... Just some crazy fan of the series or even I could do such thing - 'cause I've been watching the film so many times already and now I'm reading the books as well!

Could I justify saying I like the story of revolution of a society against its oppressive government, it may even be that ... but being honest with you it is all because of Peeta - "the bread boy" (the way Katniss refers to the boy in the book) and their love story... hahaha ....

Anyway ... as it is approaching the release date of the last film of the series - "Mockingjay - Part 2" and we're anxious to see it, I decided to create a series of posts too about all the movies and books ...

This's the first one: real characters transformed into cartoon.

Here we have the warrior princess - Katniss - who goes to war to defend her family...

and she has a lovely little sister, fragile and innocent everybody wants to protect

The animals of the forest who are always around to help the princess... even if it's just to sing :)

The best friend, who actually is in love with the princess.
And he's also is a great warrior.

Peeta!! "Oh! no, not him!" The bread boy... 
You never noticed, but he's have watching you from a long time

He's able to turn himself into a prince charming to conquer the love of princess

Oh! Of course we have a villain!

And an eccentric fairy (but she has good intentions)

That friend that helps you to address your problems

A poor little girl we all wanna protect...

And that beautiful warrior who makes every girl fall in love with him
He might seem tough, but actually has a good heart

The final scenes, you already know, as we're talking about a fairy tale, 
everything will turn out ok ... The prince gets the princess!

She gets a beautiful dress of her fairy godmother

And after the gala that is given to the whole kingdom to celebrate the end of the war,
they lived happily ever after!

The End
