Yes, I know, this isn't really a blog specifically about beauty, but I must express my excitement somehow. In exactly one month from today, The Hunger Games will be released into theaters. This trilogy has my favorite books of all time! I could only hope that the movies are just as good as the books. The story line and creativity just blows my mind and I was immediately hooked after the first few pages. To make it even better, the website The Capital - The Official Government of Panem was created to enhance the reader's imagination. On this site, you are able to register as a citizen and get stats and news about each district. Oh...and in case you were wondering, I am a citizen of District 8!!!
Yup...I even have a District 8 Identification Pass
Now here comes the make-up lover from within me. The make-up and costume design for these stories are incredible. From what the film trailers for The Hunger Games have shown, the movie seems to capture the vision that Suzanne Collins wished for all to envision. The most talked about fashionistas in THG are Katniss and, of course, Effie Trinket. I for one CANNOT wait to see the costumes that Cinna has designed for Katniss, especially that fire dress! And from what I have seen from pictures and coming attractions, designers and artists had a lot of fun with Effie! Personally, I just LOVE Cinna...well Lenny Kravitz as Cinna. My new favorite THG website is Capital Couture, a blog dedicated to the fashion of The Hunger Games. And I must say...their latest blog about Cinna's fashion makes him look so handsome and dapper...I think I have a crush (shhh...don't tell my hubby!!!) Furthermore, Cinna seems to be the only man that can truly ROCK gold liquid eyeliner! Check out the site and you'll see what I mean! I am so excited to see the make-up and fashion trends that come out of this movie!
Another thing I am super excited about is on March 1st, The Hunger Games Nail Polish Collection from China Glaze will be released. Before writing this blog, I just happen to stumble upon an online distributor that was selling the collection. Me, being the crazy lady that I am, decided to buy the collection.
