The November Want List

The November Want List

Given all of my fashion related posts this month, I’ve decided to focus on other little odds and ends for the November Want List.  Hope you enjoy!

For a Winter Wonderland Themed Christmas Tree:

And shiny, sparkly pine cone ornaments!

For my Steampunk obsession:

…plus I love of Syfy’s Warehouse 13,  so this Farnsworth replica is so me!

In my search to find a Steampunk stuffed animal for my niece’s Christmas gift, I stumbled across this handmade stuffed mechanical elephant on Etsy…and frankly, I’m in love! My niece might get one but her aunt plans to have its twin. 😉

To wear during the Doctor Who Christmas Special:

Fancy Tardis Ring!

In which to place my beverages as to not soil my new coffee table:

Been needing some coasters, and this Etsy shop owner has some really fun The Walking Dead designs.  Go check it out!

If Cinna wasn’t a designer…

If Cinna wasn’t a designer…

Okay, last one, I promise…and then I’ll get back to blogging about something other than Catching Fire!

This is a hypothetical look under the question ‘if Cinna wasn’t the District 12 designer, what would Katniss wear?’ so let’s find out!

Darker more “coal” like eyes:

A dress very un-Katniss like…but definitely more futuristic Capitol-like:

Ridiculous footwear (though I see the embellishment in silver rather than gold):

In my search to find beautiful fashionable pieces for Katniss Everdeen, I stumbled across a look for her sister Prim that I can’t stop thinking about so I’ve decided to post it for all to see!

A Capitol Affair

A Capitol Affair

Catching Fire is now out in theaters! As excited as I am, I’m avoiding the weekend crush and seeing it with a friend on Monday night.  Hopefully, it will be a good representation of the second title in the Hunger Games trilogy.

Now let’s fast forward ahead to the fashion…this is my idea of what Cinna might select for Katniss if she were attending a formal Capitol affair such as a fancy dress ball.  Enjoy!

Dressing Katniss Everdeen

Standard
Dressing Katniss Everdeen

The next film in the Hunger Games franchise, Catching Fire, premieres next Friday.  I’m wildly excited to see it.  I loved the book series and thought the first movie was a decent adaptation…but story aside, I’m confident that Capitol Fashion will be HUGE and INSANELY FUN (and very likely ridiculous) this time around!

Inspired by the movie, I’ve developed my own look for Katniss.  What you’re about to see is my idea of what Cinna might choose if she were attending a Capitol cocktail party.  It’s a more classic mod look rather than overly adventurous, but it still summons the fiery image he shaped for her as a tribute.

No doubt she’d hate attending any Capitol function;  still playacting as the newest, happiest victor would be par for the course, and hopefully, at least, Katniss would be mollified by eating the lamb stew with plums and prunes.  😉

Enjoy!

For the premiere next Friday, I’ll feature a more elegant ball gown concept for Katniss!
