I've been drooling over the movie promo shots of the pre-burned wedding dress! Sure, it looks nothing like the book description but it's a fabulous outfit and if I had some place to wear it (don't think I could make it to DragonCon and ComicCon is way too crowded for a ballgown) I'd be so tempted. Heck, I'm still tempted!

The scary thing is, I'm pretty sure I could make it for under $250, if I were willing to invest loads of time and effort into the process. And if I had some place to store it, away from cats and destructive toddlers... Is it wrong that I've already figured out how I'd do the rows of ruffles and trim on the skirt layers?

The only thing stopping me right now from going out and buying supplies is the possibility that the post-burned dress will be even more fabulous, and I'd hate to miss out on the chance to make THAT one instead!

Gorgeous
I almost wish the feathers continued onto the top, but that's a lot of feathers already..

Thank you! <3

I actually thought about that! Unfortunately feathers tend to lay really flat, which doesn't work so well when trying to curve around a bust. I definitely have plans to add more details to the top, and I think I might add some off-the-shoulder 'wings' via sleeves as well!

Ah, right. I didn't think about that.
The sleeves sound nice though.

I'm playing with the idea of cosplaying Fox Face. The problem is the training shirts and sponsor bags all say 12. Does anyone know of a way I could alter the number into a 5? Or some other way around this? I wouldn't mind doing her interview dress but I'd worry about making it recognizable.

I'm now tempted to do Katniss chariot costume from Catching fire after seeing this photo. I still might do Fox Face but this outfit is gorgeous. Does anyone have any ideas how to go about this? It would also be awesome if I could something to create and illuision or suggest flames.

I'm wondering about one of the fancy jackets Haymitch wore during Catching Fire. I thought I remembered him wearing it during the party scene at President Snow's house, but then I found a picture of him from it and he was wearing something completely different. Anyway, the one I'm thinking of was a really cool, somewhat futuristic looking military style jacket that was either black or grey and had white accents. I think it was double breasted, but it had no visible buttons, and there were little gold bars on the epaulettes. Does anyone know what I'm talking about, and do you know if/where I might be able to buy something resembling it? I don't want it for cosplay, just for everyday use because it was an awesome jacket.

I made a cosplay for a Capitol Citizen out of satin with peacock feathers and motifs.

I am wondering if anyone made a post-burned Katniss Mockingjay dress with a set of wings. I also wonder if anyone tried to make a book version of the pre-burned wedding dress...

Cassie that dress is so beautiful~ <3


I've been playing around with the idea of making a Hunger Games cosplay. I'm not sure yet but Katniss' arena gear from the second movie might be fun~

Here's a selfie I took before going to the movie. I don't think anyone realized I was cosplaying due to my winter coat.
