was anyone else kind of disappointed by the Capitol looks in the film? In the books they're really unpleasant (implanting whiskers, horns, ears, dyeing their skin, lots of surgeries, etc, to stand out more and more) but in the film it was just like outrageous Lady Gaga style.
>>
>>8767138
I liked it t.b.h. because it was a much more obvious connection to real life media culture, where people already dress like this. It would have been nice to see some more over the top styles but making your villain(s) really ugly on top of evil seems boring to me.
>>
>>8767138
Agree somewhat but the make up and wardrobe for Tigris to me was spot on
>>
>>8767153
I thought that she was so beautiful.
>>
>>8767138
>>8767144
I feel like the over the top style worked in the books but when you translate it visually, it's too silly for the world of the film. The idea behind the OTT appearances of Capitol citizens is that the Capitol is so absolutely disconnected from the life in most of the districts, they have the time and money and general luxury to come up with crazier and crazier styles and aesthetics. At banquets and parties, they aren't worried about hunger: but about being able to try everything, hence the liquid that makes them barf.

The style of the film accomplishes "the District is this wealthy, shallow, disconnected place so oblivious to the starvation and poverty of most of Panem" without crossing the line into being comical.

Pic related. Ignore the guy but the women's costumes are based on the prep team from the books. (Although I remember the girl's skin being more pastel green than dark emerald, but it's been a while)

what the fuck that has got to be the actual johanna from the movies
>>
>>8767144
i mean the regular capitol citizens weren't exactly the villians. they were normal every day people who really have no idea what life is like in the districts.
they're not evil. they're oblivious.

Every time I see a baby cosplay an angel gets its wings and my heart is filled with joy

>>8767138
I agree, I was really looking forward to that when the movies were gonna come out. The crazy outfits and body mods etc were one of my favorite parts about the books.
But yeah, like >>8767175 said, it's probably hard to do without going into goofy territory.

Pic unrelated, some girl I follow who did an Effie inspired look

I would actually put it down more to the cost of the necessary prosthetics than just the fact that it would go into goofy territory. You can't devote too much time to dressing extras, after all. And prosthetic make-up takes time and effort.

You also can't run the risk of letting the extras be people doing it themselves, because the quality won't match, or the actual final aesthetic will be all over the place.

Plus, having one or two that really stand out (ie: Tigris) makes for a bigger impact in the end.

can i be honest? this weird scarf thing is so ugly. uglier than pretty much any other thing in any of the movies. i hate it. i think its awful and disgusting. i have never felt so salty about an article of clothing.

>>8777018
This is the best cosplay I've ever seen period
>>
>>8766542
Dyed prom dress then photoshop?
>>
>>8778164
Photoshop yes, dyed prom dress no. It was a WIP a few years ago but I don't think they ever finished adding the details or if they did, they never posted photos.
>>
Has anyone ever attempted to do the book interview dress without photoshop? In the book it's described as being covered in jewels and diamonds to get the 'fire' effect
>>
>>8778011
That bow doesn't look properly strung...and that being a real bow could be dangerous...
>>
>>8778595
I can see what you mean, someone's not checked the string, but it should be fine just for pics like that. however if she tried to do a shooting pose she could accidentally either pull it into the right position, which is just a scare (strange sound and string 'gives' more suddenly), or the string could snap down from the notch making the bow unstrung + possibly damage it and her.
tldr check your prop safety and know what shit is supposed to look like
>>
>>8778595
>>8778751
If this was shot at a con, a lot of cons require you not to use a real bowstring, even on a real bow. It's possible she's just put cheap elastic on instead, and that it got stretched out doing poses where she had an arrow nocked? The other possibility is that it has no give and was left over-long for nocked poses, then wrapped around the end for at-rest poses. That would account for the slack, since she wouldn't be able to wind it fully tight without any stretch.

At least, those are my guesses.
>>
>>8778755
very correct, I forgot about con safety rules. could've wrapped it around the bottom end, would've looked a lot neater. I'm less concerned about this Katniss' safety now tho
>>
>>8778755
>not use a real string

that's even MORE dangerous...seriously, people don't realize that the string isn't the part that does work. It's the arms. If ya'll are gonna use a bow as a prop, PLEASE use a fake bow where the arms are already "pulled" back.

She's using a real bow and those arms being stretched back makes it just as dangerous (if not more) than a properly strung bow.

The lesson here kids is please use a fake bow where the arms aren't actually being pulled back.

>>
>>8778595
Yes, only using it as a prop and never shooting it is soooo dangerous. Wow much trigger.
>>

They asked James St James to send in a tape as a crazy cat lady and this is what Mathu Anderson did for him.

But they never heard back

Looks like Bette Midler if she decided to become a cat!

I liked the look in the film. It was out-there enough to look like she'd be shunned by the Capitol
>>
I can't believe this movie series has been going since I was in high school and I never got around to making a costume when I love so many of the designs. How much longer until I miss the window and can't avoid looking like someone that doesn't have any sense of relevance? One more year, maybe?

>Can't we start a fashion inspired by the capitol?
YES PLEASE DO WANT

Sounds really weird, but I would like much more Hunger Games in my life. I don't want to copy characters who I like, I want to feel like some original character from the series. Capitol or districts inspired. It seems so much fun to me.
Or I ate too much chocolate today. Sorry.
>>
>>8789986
I understand anon's dilemma - it's more fun to cosplay from a series that people you pass by in the hall can get excited over. I still plan on making an Effie cosplay, but I'm a little sad I missed the boat when the movies were in their prime.
>>
>>
>>8790577
ON youtube there is some official or some shit tutorials(?) for fashion from the capitol
the hunger games youtube page has them i think
and they have some youtubers as guest acting as "people living in the district"

>>
>>8778259
I really, really wanted to make it a few years ago when I was super into the books. I even had a plan for how many fake jewels to buy, dye, and sew onto the dress to make it look right.

I'm not into the series that much anymore but I still might make it one day. I've since lost the paper with the plan on it but I might redraft it and make it when I have the time and money.

Are there any Alma Coin cosplayers? I love her character so much, both in the books and in the movies.
When she appeared in the 3rd movie, did any of you notice her obvious contact lenses? None of my normie friends who saw the movie noticed, but my friends who went to a con at least once saw it right away.

It's not image exclusive because comments contribution or replies don't necessary need photos. Typing "bump" is not a comment and thus stupid.

How are the arms pulled back if it's just a fake string? If that's a real bow there's no way it would have the arms in the correct position if it didn't have a real string in it, and if it was a real bow with a real string, there wouldn't be slack in the string. Tension is what makes the bow work. It's a fake bow with the arms already bent. It's probably what >>8778755 said, and that obviously requires arms that are fake.
>>

where would you get fake bows like that?

not strict cosplay but Capitol inspired
