Capitol Citizen Luna





Outfit Post March 23rd 2012

When I fangirl, I fangril hard. My newest obsession is "The Hunger Games."

The Hunger Games
 is a young adult novel written by Suzanne Collins. It was first published on September 14, 2008, by Scholastic, in hardcover.[1] It is written in the voice of sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives in a post-apocalyptic world in the country of Panem where the countries of North America once existed. The Capitol, a highly advanced metropolis, holds absolute power over the rest of the nation. The Hunger Games are an annual event in which one boy and one girl aged 12 to 18 from each of the 12 districts surrounding the Capitol are selected by lottery to compete in a televised battle in which only one person can survive.

When I first read the book I was immediately hooked. Now the first instalment of the trilogy has been made into a movie, and it's finally here! I usually attend midnight screenings of my favorite book-to-movie premiers (like HP)  because of the crowds; the feeling of anticipation and excitement with a room full of like-minded fandom. Some people choose to dress for the night or simply have a token from the franchise. I chose to dress as a Capitol citizen simply viewing the games.

"Style and fashion are very important to the aristocratic citizens of the Capitol. It is common for them to tattoo and dye their bodies, as well as undergo plastic surgery to alter their appearances. Capitol residents also frequently wear wigs in a multitude of colors. The other districts think the people from the Capitol are both different and odd. Partly because the districts (other than District 1) have no sense of fashion"

  7. Luna you look amazing, I love everything about this outfit! I was wondering if you could answer me this: was the bra necessary you feel, or was it just decorative? What I'm getting at is, does the ASOS suit have good support? Some support? None at all? I'm thinking about buying one too, but all my bras are such unsightly old lady bras (LB is not available to me unfortunately) that I wouldn't feel comfortable with them poking out, but I still definitely need a LOT of support (I'm an EU 90H, I'm not exactly sure what that translates to in US sizing, but the H is a big clue). Should I still go ahead and order or just forget the mesh until I find some prettier bras? Thank you xx
