And here another Hunger Games fanart.
I did this for a sadistic exchange with :iconmordaunt: (who made me a model of the Stargate. yes, with all the symbols, yes, she insulted me. A LOT).

I had a thousands problem with this one. I spent most of the time researching bridal gowns (you've to understand I'm NOT one of those girls who like to think about what they'll be wearing at their wedding so I apparently know almost nothing and had to start from the ABC) and trying to fit the 3 different characters should be synthesized in this gown:
Katniss's own personality (since Cinna would certainly keep her in mind)
Cinna's style (very fabric-centered)
Capitol's taste (because they voted this one amongst many others).
All thinking about the black version which SHOULD look like a bird.

Honestly. It's been a puzzle and I don't think I've found the perfect solution. I've lost a bit of katniss' personality.

(ATTENTION: I DON'T do exchanges, this is an exception as ~Mordaunt is a close friend of mine)

Wondeful. I like how the weddig dress burn and we can see the mockingjay dress appears. It seems so real :)

This is beautifully done! :love: I love it, how you still have all the pearls on the dress too, and you kept the uber long sleeves, unlike some artists (no offense to them, everyone has their own interpretation)
It's really pretty! Great job!! :D
