Peeta Mellark: Spirit of Strength
Capitol Couture has been waiting eagerly for the next wave of incredible images of our cherished elite, and here they are! Fresh from the excitement of the most eventful Quarter Quell to date, we are thrilled and honored to present the new Capitol Citizen Living Portraits.
As our Quarter Quell victors, Peeta Mellark and Johanna Mason hold the distinct honor of being the first Capitol citizens featured within a Living Portrait. Peeta stands tall and true in his Capitol Citizen Living Portrait, his matte leather Unconditional ensemble showcasing a stone-like texture and channeling the victor’s quiet strength, completed by shirt and shoes courtesy of Maison Martin Margiela. The paper collar piece, designed by David Mason, mirrors the sculptural elements in Johanna’s dress and gives a stern ambiance to the baker’s son. With an unprecedented two victories under his belt, Peeta is no longer the boy who bravely faced the 74th Hunger Games, but a true Capitol hero.
Citizens can witness the artist’s hand-selected series of Living Portraits in person at SOCA this summer.
Whoever is guiding the marketing campaign for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 is really earning their paycheck this time around, because so far they are crushing it. (it’s Lionsgate’s Tim Palen & team, Carve, Watson/DG). They generated those subversive fashion posters that turned some of Panem’s most oppressed citizens into glistening, tragic models. Then they delivered President Snow’s ominous televised address to the nation, which teased Peeta’s duplicitous place in the new order. And now they’ve returned with another address from President Snow, only this one’s a little different.
It may seem silly to praise a movie’s marketing campaign, but it’s hard not to admire the way Lionsgate takes the Hunger Games fans so seriously. Every other young-adult franchise out there seems to gloss over the fan base that got the movie a green light in the first place, but here Lionsgate is not only giving them juicy morsels to chew on between now and November 21, 2014, but the studio is also treating this winter release like it’s a huge summer movie.
Lionsgate is putting it on a pedestal, engaging the fans, expanding the world of the movie, and so far it’s doing it all without showing us every single second of footage from the movie. That’s just plain fun.
FlyLo is playing at a venue like 25 minutes from my house in November. If I don’t manage to see him this time around I will be very disappointed in myself…
However loving his parents may have seemed, he [Simon] knew that, scratch the surface, and they’d scream and run away. And here he’s confronted with a guy who is just everyting he thinks is wrong about a person, who comes back for him when the chips are down because he’s on his crew. To me, that’s a real parent, and that is an extremely beautiful thing to get to, and I think it’s very real… But the most important thing about ‘Safe’ was that relationship.

fuck you, Joss….
Being sick in the summer is the worst. Not because I’m “missing out” being outside or anything… more like, here I am coughing with a sore throat and sweating like a pig but also it’s super hot and muggy weather, which just exacerbates things. BLERGH.
