district look

What if Peeta and Katniss hadn’t been forced to talk during the training sessions? Would Katniss not know what the bread from district 11 looked like? I wonder if she would’ve figured it out after she got the parachute or if she would brushed it off as a small sponsor gift? Would Katniss have still behaved as rebellious and independently during the games without that acknowledgment from the people of district 11?

Victory Tour District Looks: District 7

Is that mahogany we see??  The plates on this smooth jacket, comprised of the finest-grain wood from the forests of Panem, could only have been crafted by the small, nimble hands of a District 7 craftsperson. Ferocious victor Johanna Mason would certainly smolder beside a Capitol consort adorned in this wooden masterpiece.

They say freckles are angel kisses but what do you do if you are a literal angel

kaz, post crooked kingdom, walking along the canals of financial district, looking up from under the brim of his hat (bought by inej!!!), nodding at passing merchers who tilt their hats to him in return. 

kaz brekker operating a proper business and earning the misplaced trust of the mercher class.

kaz brekker mysteriously managing stakes everywhere from first harbor to the warehouse district. 

kaz brekker never losing his street boy iron edge. never striking a deal without having a slightly shady back-up plan. 

kaz brekker will probably never be able to stop himself from making documents disappear off mercher’s desks when he’s discussing business with them. 

kaz brekker standing at his window, intently looking in the general direction of the harbour on days he’s heard of a slaver ship being on its way to ketterdam. 

kaz brekker showing he faintest of smiles as he offers the wraith his hand to shake while they stand in his office (he will never know how she crept in) 

kaz brekker clutching his hands in inej’s hair as he hesitantly kisses the top of her head.

  1. Do some research as to which stores are located in your area.
    If you’re in America you can look up national chain locations such as Joann Fabrics or Hobby Lobby, or regional chain locations such as Hancock Fabrics in the Southeast.
    If you’re in Canada you can look up national chain locations of Fabricland or Fabricville (depending on the Frenchiness of your location).
    In both America and Canada, Michael’s craft stores carry a wide variety of sewing supplies but only a small selection of actual fabric. Walmart and Target (RIP Canadian Target) also carry sewing machines and occasionally carry fabric and sewing supplies in their craft section (but it can vary greatly between stores/regions).
    If you live in a big city see if there is a fashion, textile or fabric district and look on various sites such as Yelp for reviews on various locations.
  2. Look through your local flyers and check online to see if any of the stores in your area have coupons or if they are having any sales. Also see if any of your stores offer discounts for paid memberships. I had a Fabricville membership that cost $20 CAN/year and got me a ton of savings with or without sales. I would say I saved about $300 on fabric last year alone.
  3. Print out or bring references of the outfit that you are making.
    Also bring the pattern package or take a picture of the back for the pattern(s) you will be using. I liked to circle my sizes in pencil on the back of my pattern envelopes then take a picture to save in my phone so I could remember how much of each type of fabric I would need and what types of fabric and interfacing the pattern suggested. Having references and pattern information also can really help if you’re trying to find a specific type of fabric and need to ask an employee to assist you. If you’re embarrassed to say you’re making a costume for a “nerd convention” I would sometimes just say I was a fashion or theatre student working on a project to avoid having to constantly explain myself to nosey employees. Also you’d be surprised how many cosplayers work at chain fabric stores. If you got to any chain fabric store in Canada or the US I can almost guarantee you’ll find at least 1 cosplayer, theatrical costumer, or die-hard renaissance faire-goer working there who would be more than stoked on discussing wacky costumes projects.
  4. Bring a friend with you.
    Shopping for fabric in a large chain store can be overwhelming. Shopping for fabric in a fashion district with 3 dozen stores with fabric piled 8 feet high can be extremely overwhelming. Bring a friend. Not only can they act as a second opinion when it comes to choosing colors/textures/patterns, but you can also divide and conquer bigger stores if you have time constraints. Plus they can also help boost your confidence if you’re a naturally shy or introverted person but need help from the store employees. Oh and they can also be a pack mule but don’t abuse the pack mule clause or they might not want to help much after a couple trips haha.

Victory Tour District Looks: District 2

Honor the source of our nation’s military might with this dynamic headdress.  Hardened leather and metal studs make any ensemble militant-chic in a minute.  This look is sure to please even the Peacekeepers escorting our victors on the final leg of their Victory Tour.

anonymous asked:

Do we know anything about Erwin's mother? What we do know is that only his father was killed, right? So is mrs Smith alive somewhere? Thoughts?

Nope. There is no information in canon about Erwin’s mother. His childhood district is also completely unknown.  I wrote some thoughts about Erwin’s backstory in this post. Aside from losing his dad, he appeared normal and well adjusted during his teen years. It makes me think that despite it all, his childhood was pretty ok.

Someone took care of him. Someone gave him the education and the manners and grace we see in the canon story. You don’t learn those things in the military.

My head canons though… his dad seems like the type who’d live in an outlier district looking to help the less fortunate. I picture Erwin’s mom being from a wealthy family. After her husband’s death, she took Erwin back to them, using money and influence to shield him from the MPs. Since she’s never mentioned, I assume she died at some point during his youth. All conjecture of course!

This may be a long shot but can you draw tired parent!Mcpriceley having to look after district nine?

the tired family all nap at once

Holy shit a Democrat, Jon Ossoff, might actually win the Georgia 6th this is a fucking west wing episode with the dead candidate and so niño but instead it’s Trump as a president and faulty equipment and ELEVEN REPUBLICANS OUT OF 18 CANDIDATES at the very least this is gonna have the house RUNNING to the left because this is THE GEORGIA SIXTH AND THEY MIGHT LOSE THIS IS UNPRECEDENTED THEY HAVEN’T BEEN DEMOCRAT SINCE FUCKING/NIXON/ FOR THE PAST TWO DECADES REPUBLICANS HAVE WON BY 20-100 PERCENT THAT’S NOT A TYPO

The REASON they’re having a special election is bc the former representative was a Trump appointee AND RIGHT NOW THE DISTRICT IS BLUE

THE HOUSE IS ELECTED EVERY TWO YEARS IF THIS DISTRICT EVEN JUST LOOKS LIKE THEY’RE GOING BLUE NOT EVEN NECESSARILY GOES BLUE. REBUPLICANS ARE GOING TO BE SHitTING THIER PANTS THE GOAL OF EVERY POLITICIAN IS TO BE REELECTED, REGARDLESS OF PARTY

THESE AREN’T PEOPLE THEY CAN CLAIM ARE “HIRED” BY THE DNC THESE ARE THE ACTUAL VOTERS

AND THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE, DOESN’T HAVE TO WIN. HE JUST NEEDS TO NOT MONUMENTALLY LOSE

AND IF HE DOES? ALL THE BETTER

You better get up while you can.
