First off, do you know what today is?!?!? Mockingjay Part 1 premieres. Ok, well really for the fan girls and boys, last night. I won’t be able to see it until next week but I am fangirl ecstatic!!! I love the Hunger Games books, minus the ending. But I won’t ruin that for you that have not read or just haven’t caught up yet. It isn’t an ending you would quite think of though, so I guess there is that. If you ever got a chance to read my about me, then you know I love YA literature. It is something I am still drawn to and haven’t grown out of. I have grown into some other fiction, but not out of that.
So you can imagine my excitement when I found out Rae Gun Ramblings was doing a whole tour dedicated to Hunger Games, well I jumped right on board. Even more exciting? I got the date of the movie career! I call that the lottery in blogland!
There is so much inspiration from the movies and books that I didn’t know which way I wanted to go. A printable? A screenprint shirt or pillow? Something fashionable? Quotes? I was struck with the fashion of Katniss. Some of her normal daily fashion struck me, but since I am glamour girl, I went with her black dress from Catching Fire. The feathered shoulder really stood out to me and signified the Mockingjay without being too literal.
So I decided that I would put together a really fast tutorial on how to make a fun and fashionable accessory to help you get your Katniss on. Have a big test coming up? A tough meeting? A date night? Girl, we got this! So carry on to the tutorial…

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial. If you have any problems or questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I tried to make this quick and simple, but what may be simple in my mind, may be mass confusion to you.
