Here's a quick update featuring Maggie. She's wearing a simple gown with elegantly embroidered plaid trim. It's a good sturdy afternoon gown for receiving visitors at home or perhaps going out on a walk.
My sister and I have been re-watching the first two Batman films before the Dark Knight Rises comes out next weekend. Anyone else a fan of the super-hero movie genre? Batman is my favorite (ever since I was a little girl), but I've really enjoyed watching Captain America, Thor, the Avengers, and the new Spiderman. You probably won't see me trying to do a super-hero paper doll (I have tried and failed), but they're always fun to watch.
This costume was one of the ones that inspired me to create a paper doll of Katniss. It is described so vividly in the book and has so much potential for being an incredibly stunning visual. This is the costume Cinna creates for Katniss as she rides in the chariot with Peeta during the parade at the beginning of the Games festivities. It's described as "a simple black unitard that covers... from ankle to neck. shiny leather boots lace up to [the] knees. But it's the fluttering cape made of streams of orange, yellow, and red and the matching headpiece that define this costume." As those of you who have read the books or watched the movie know, the cape and headpiece are lit with a synthetic fire, causing Katniss to appear as a "girl on fire".
Sorry for the sporadic updates, I've been busy lately with work and weddings and weekend trips and well, all of you have lives so you know how it goes! I haven't had a chance to draw lately, but hopefully will in a month or two. Never fear, though, I have a pretty large buffer set up of costumes to post (it's just up to me to have the self discipline to sit down and write some rambling drabble and actually post the costumes).
