May the odds ever be in your favour.

Today I'll be doing a longer post (to get me going as I am in writers block for my essay) on The Hunger Games! Last night after dinner I went to watch the movie with a friend at 10:30pm. Exhausting to watch a 2 and half hour movie in the middle of the night... I have personally read the book myself and really enjoyed it, finishing it in a day. It provided a whole new aspect of the world, something that is realistic in the sense it is always possible to end up in a state like Panem.

As I watched the movie I noticed they altered certain aspects of detail, which I didn't really mind because it was a movie. But what I didn't like was the fact some of the things they took out or changed or completely cut out of the movie made the movie lack in terms of a smooth storyline. It made it hard for people to actually understand the movie unless they
1. really payed attention the whole 2 hours

2. read the book previously

3. able to interpret things on their own

Now the movie was very visually appealing and the amazing amount of extras was mind-blowing to me. It did tell for the most part what the story was about, but it really lacked appeal in terms of conversation and plot line. It took out a lot more of the idea of "star-crossed lovers" which is very key in the novel. It also really removed the connections between the characters, only really focusing on Katniss and her world and decision, not really her relationships with others, something that i found really important in terms of the novel. The movie ran in a fast paced environment without much explanations and that was what really disappointed me. I enjoyed the actors and actresses because they played their part well. Jennifer Lawrence definitely had the perfect personality and acting to go with the character Katniss, she exuded the charms of Katniss with her acting and definitely can't wait to see more of her. (I liked her in x-men as well haha)

On to the next point of my post! As someone who really loves fashion, and loves affordable fashion I was inspired by the outfits in the movie. I love the down to earth, huntress kind of look Katniss Everdeen had, with the braids, wavy hair and not too feminine style of clothing. It's a style anyone can interpret back into their day to day clothes and with spring coming the weather is perfect to try this style out when you're out and about. So i'll show you multiple pieces that i've found and put together of ways you can dress up in the same style!

Some inspiration for those who love Katniss's style just as much as I do. Keep the accessories minimal with maybe some bracelets and a simple necklace to match. For Bags, try to go for earth tones and canvas/cloth material with hobo bags, bucket bags, messenger bags or a slouchy backpack. Just braid or crimp your hair and you're ready to go!

Hopefully some of you enjoyed this post ^-^
