Hey, what’s up? I’ve found out that Entertainment Weekly (EW), courtesy from Lionsgate, has rolled out a brand new still featuring the tributes of District 12 for the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark, along with their stylist, Cinna. Look at the image below and you’ll say that it perfectly fits what was written in the first book — a pair of black tight clothing that represents the coal and mining life of District 12. Read what director Gary Ross has told EW about the Tribute Parade costume and the person behind it:
“This is one of those moments where Cinna’s character syncs up with the creativity of our costume designer Judianna Makovsky,” says Ross. (Makovsky earned Oscar nominations for her work on Ross’ previous movies Pleasantville and Seabiscuit.) “What Cinna was trying to do was create something that came out of District 12, out of a coal mining world, with a fresh, bold look to it. So Judianna went to this wonderful black reflective material that glistened like coal or graphite and would obviously work well in the Tribute parade where Katniss becomes the Girl on Fire.”
I’m pretty excited how they will interpret Katniss’ fire costume in the Tribute parade. Are you with me?
