This edition of Katniss' Presentation outfit is an unlined, very fitted, zip-front, lightly boned bodice. The fabric is a wonderful unusual slightly stretchy vinyl/PVC embossed black velvet. Embedded in the small shiny vinyl scales are tiny multi-color glitter specks that reflect the light and give the illusion of being lit from within. The body conscious corset shaped bodice has a curved hem and is fitted through the torso with seams that are lightly boned and reinforced with decorative top-stitching. The neckline features a large pointed collar. The long sleeves have exaggerated bell-shaped cuffs and dramatic three-point shoulder epaulettes just like the movie costume. The full length "fire cape" of sheer red iridescent mirror organza shimmers and sparkles under the light and attaches to the tunic shoulders with small hooks. I designed the the neck "fire" ruff to resemble the flames surrounding Katniss as she rode into the Presentation parade. The ruff is a separate accessory consisting of a collage of pointed shards of sheer organza and sparkly netting shirred on to an adjustable cord that ties at the neck front over the jacket collar.
***Please note that you will need to supply your own leggings and footwear to complete this outfit.
Size: approximately US dress size 8
This fabric has some stretch and will fit snug at the upper measurements. If your measurements are larger those stated this costume will be too tight and will not look it's best. If you are smaller this tunic can be taken in through the waist. Please convo me for more information about size or shipping to other countries.
Have you seen "Catching Fire" yet? I'm planning on making a version of Katniss' Quarter Quell Presentation gown....please convo me for more details.
