Finally starting on Katniss’s Mockingjay dress from Catching Fire 🔥 I got the drape done and I’m working on the mock up and playing with fabric choices. I’ve been in a sewing slump so it’s nice to be getting back into it!
“This time around we made Peeta’s character much more masculine,” Ms. Summerville said. She laughed as she recounted meeting Josh Hutcherson, the actor who plays him, and saw how athletic he was.
Using jackets and more structured pieces that amped up his already muscular physique, she accentuated his rapid maturation between the first and second films, and hinted at the emotional and sexual allure that drew Katniss to him initially. Ms. Summerville used a lot of subdued greens in Peeta’s wardrobe “because Katniss’s favorite color is green,” she said, “so subliminally, he’s always trying to woo her.” (X)
I wanted to imagine what it would be like if the Capitol advertised the tributes during the victory tour as if they were happy, sexy people, putting on a show like the Moulin Rouge. I based this concept on Rene Gruau’s posters for the famous cabaret.
Jennifer Lawrence & Francis Lawrence on ‘Catching Fire’ Costumes:
Francis Lawrence: Yeah. Well, sometimes practicality gets tricky. The wedding dress was pretty impractical. Jen was falling a lot in it.
Jennifer Lawrence: Yeah, the wedding dress was incredible, it’s stunning and unbelievable. I’m not good with big dresses, and stairs. I didn’t know that until afterwards, I wish I would have known! [laughs]
