When enjoying the great movie series of Hunger Games, we remain unconscious towards the immense work done on costume design of characters. Indeed, the costume designers and the whole crew have made an effort to reflect the book author’s imagination on the screen and to create unique looks for every character in the movie, even for the 500 extras for the party scene in the second movie.
To break down the style and fashion chosen for the movie characters it is important to highlight that a very distinct difference was created between the looks of population in Capitol and districts (designers made efforts to differentiate styles for each district separately). Keeping the layers of society very distinguish, the difference is apparent from the first look. While the people in Capitol are extremely bold, dressed in vibrant colours with dyed hair in unbelievable shades and eye-catching make-up, the population living in districts wear old clothing in muted colours prevailed with grey, khaki, black, dark blue and brown highlighting washed-out tones.
Throughout the movie, when the story develops, the main hero – Katniss Everdeen – becomes a symbol of a revolution against the Capitol. Consequently, her appearance becomes inspirational for everybody following the uprising. Not only this character has inspired the futuristic society, but also the current 21st century people are prone to dress like Katniss or other heroes of the movie. That is why I have created a number of sets inspired by Hunger Games, which reflects the clothing of both district areas and Capitol.
And here are some sets reflecting the style and soul of the Capitol – bold, colourful and vibrant – all extremely eye-catching.
