The hunger games

So those of you that don't know, this fantastic book series is about to become the next teen movie sensation.
To cut a long story short - 24 people (1 male and 1 female from each district 1-12) get selected to play in a battle to the death, winner getting a life of luxury and celebrity status. Catch - the players are aged 12-18, and they are drawn from a lottery. The capital, a excessive community of decadence and superiority is in charge of this "entertaining battle that is televised live".

Sounds a little morbid i know, but a truly interesting read. And has a detailed focus on it main characters.
For me being a makeup artist i have been impatiently waiting to see the faces, and the fashions of "the capitol".
And they have not disappointed. Its was a fine line between creating something visually bold and interesting - without changing the somber mood of the city itself.

Over the next few weeks i intend to re-create a few capital inspired creations myself. In the meantime here is a sneak peek at some of the looks in the movie.
