To say I live under a rock is an understatement. I don't watch TV, I don't listen to the radio, I don't read newspapers, because mainstream media just gets me aggravated. So it wasn't until last week, after a friend convinced me to join Tumblr, that via her fangirling there I even knew The Hunger Games was coming out. I immediately asked my boyfriend if he wanted to go – I had to wait until Sunday as the previous two days of the weekend were already booked in for a Sub Atari Knives gig and a Blacqk Audio/Evanescence concert.
Like many of you, I totally loved every second of the movie. So when I got totally frustrated with an assignment I was working on, I decided I should go into the kitchen and get frustrated with some cupcakes instead.
I baked a batch of vanilla cupcakes, topped with buttercream and set about designing the toppers.
I chose to do two of my favourite symbols and two of my favourite scenes (I know, as if you could ever pick two).
They did such a great job with the district logos, if I had time I totally would have done them all. I had to leave out some design aspects of the #12 logo just because it was too cluttered.
THAT IS MAHOGANY.
Effie was an amazing character with some of the best lines.
The same can be said for Haymitch. Both upon introduction are portrayed as very unlikeable characters, but you can't help but fall in love with them.
I had to recreate the mockingjay pin. With a lot less accuracy that I would have liked. All three mockingjay designs from the cover art are stunning. I had thoughts of making them all, but that can wait until the trilogy is out.
Can't say enough how much I loved the aesthetics of the movie. I can't wait to see it again, although the budget dictates that I may have to wait cause I can't afford repeated cinema trips.
What about you guys? Have you seen it yet? What were your favourite moments?
