Why did I read this book?
Let me tell you one thing: I’m beyond excited to watch Hunger Games. I mean, Hunger Games is awesome. It is one of the best books I’ve ever read, aside from the epic Harry Potter series. I still remembered the time I jumped in happiness when they announce that Hunger Games will be made into a movie. Sure I frowned at the casts, since my Peeta is kind of different with Josh Hutcherson and my Katniss somehow looks tougher… but well, mostly I’m just granted that now more people will soon know how awesome Hunger Games is. I cried in happiness when Taylor Swift, who is my favorite singer, finally released her song, Safe and Sound, for Hunger Games soundtrack. Oh, just imagine my excitement when I watched music video for Safe and Sound. I practically spent a day texting everyone I know that Safe and Sound is one of the most beautiful music video ever!
I don’t usually buy or read a movie companion, and this is my first time buying one. This book is quite informative. I enjoyed pictures from the movie, and it’s really fun to learn more about Suzanne Collins. I guess the most I enjoyed from this movie companion is pictures of Capitol residents. I have to admit that in my mind, Capitol people are people with zero fashion sense and full of silly outfits. I can’t be more wrong. The fashion amazes me. It’s outrageous, but somehow, it is also pretty. They use bright and hideous colors, colors I don’t think I will ever wear in real life, but the color palettes fit right as Capitol’s colors. They look like dolls, people who are only seen in fashion magazines and runways. I don’t think that the costume designer can do a better job on it!
Since they said a picture paints a thousand words, you can see for yourself:
Aren’t they look *ehem* stunning?
I think it might be a great idea to wear Capitol fashion for Halloween this year! I may would be the lady with fancy nail polish. If you know what I mean…
It’s too bad that there aren’t many good photos of Katniss and Peeta in this book. Since I’m Team Peeta, it’s kind of unacceptable. Anyway, Liam Hemsworth as Gale makes me intrigued to have a Gale poster in my bedroom. Now I know why Katniss is torn between Peeta and Gale... err, my new love for Liam Hemsworth is a different topic I guess.
What do you think of the
Capitol fashion movie companion book? Are you as excited as me to watch the movie? :)
