The Hunger Games Series: District 4 - Fishing
Hey everyone! So first of all, apologies for how long it took me to get this look up! I actually did another look originally but due to the dark weather outside, it came out extremely dark and washed out. I then the very next day spilt a pint of water all over my laptop, which as you can imagine, didn't end well. After a weekend in the airing cupboard the poor guy pulled through but understandably, he did suffer a loss in the form of his keyboard. I have plugged in an external one which is a pain in the bum, but alas, means I can blog again! So apologies for my brief absence.
So District 4 represents the fishing district and consequently is one of the richest districts. Many of the tributes from this district are very skilled and often go into the arena as careers. One of my favourite characters from the series, Finnick, is from District 4 and I'm very excited to see how he is portrayed on the big screen in Catching Fire, which I have yet to see (I KNOW!) So I am a lot happier with the second version of this look, which came out a lot better and true to my vision than the first did. So without further ado... District 4!!
My idea behind this look is fishing = fish scales and I somehow wanted to incorporate that. I went very blue and whimisical and basically had a lot of fun getting creative which I truly do believe District 4 was perfect for. From the book and little previews of the film, you can see the stylists get very creative with District 4 and their outfits when they are being shown off and Finnick himself wears very creative outfits. The "scales" were actually created using the netting that onions come wrapped in (how professional of me!) Initially I tried satsuma netting but I liked the look with the onions more as it was smaller and the netting is a bit thicker so allowed me to get a really precise line. The rest of the look is done using various Lime Crime palettes!
So I hope you enjoyed seeing what I came up with for District 4! It was probably the most time consuming and creative district i've done so far and I really enjoyed it :)
Have you seen Catching Fire yet? What did you think? I'm seeing it Saturday!
