'Mockingjay Part 2' Inspired Fashion To Prepare For An Uprising & Channel Your Rebellious Spirit
I am counting down the days to November 19th when Mockingjay – Part 2 will hit movie theaters. There has been an onslaught of awesome teaser trailers that feature Katniss Everdeen's new Mockingjay — Part 2 fashion and act as positive propaganda for the Mockingjay movement in Panem. There is even an entire website dedicated to the uprising against the Capitol, which features information about the leaders of the Mockingjay movement the, "Pillars of Panem," which informs followers of the movement how to channel characteristics of their favorite heroes and heroines, and a "Dispatches" section where you can share powerful imagery in relation to the cause. It's so realistic and epic that it makes me want to stand up holding my three fingered salute high while performing the Mockingjay whistle.
The new trailers and teasers for the final instalment of The Hunger Games saga feature the battle ready Katniss Everdeen. She has transformed from the start of her journey as a participant in the games to a leader for her people, who have been and still are, under tyranny. Her style and overall image has changed along with her outlook on life; once seen in dirty, loose fitting clothes and combat boots, she now wears a fantastical ensemble fit for a warrior and leader of her people. Katniss looks powerful, modern, and body confident in her new Mockingjay attire.
So here's how to channel Ms. Everdeen and her Mockingjay apparel to help you feel like a fashion rebel.

Doesn't Katniss look incredible in this all black, rebellious outfit that makes her look ready for a war? Although figure hugging, it is still quite androgynous with its armor style accessories and biker boots.

The Fiery Fashion Pieces
From the very moment Katniss entered the gaze of the public eye, her stylist Cinna made sure she stood out from the rest of the contestants. He did this by adding faux flames into her garments, which gave her the nickname "girl on fire." Without this clever design work, she may not have caught the attention of her sponsors during her first time in the arena and thus she may not have survived this far.
Cinna was also responsible for her iconic Mockingjay inspired bridal gown, which on first glance appeared to be a normal wedding dress, but when Katniss spun around while wearing the dress, it transformed into a Mockingjay design. The flames associated with Katniss appear to be a metaphor for the growing rebellion that will soon engulf the Capitol, and the threat of destruction that such a rebellion would bring. I would love to see Katniss in another fiery ensemble to rally the troops and ignite everyone's passions.
