New week and new Monday Meme by the ever so lovely Strawberry Singh. This time she urges us to dress up as a movie character. My first thought was Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games but it just felt too easy. I wanted a proper challenge. So I opted for Effie Trinket from the same movie.
I had a couple frustrating hours trying to find something, anything avantagard enough for Effie. Then I found this lovely cocktail dress aptly named Capitol Cocktail from Dead Dollz and it was pretty much smooth sailing from there.
I love Effie. I love how positively out of place she is in the Districts, how she almost always keeps a smile and a positive outlook, even though the people around her makes her grind her teeth. And I love her progression from absolutely clueless to the workings of the world, to the sensitive and understanding woman she becomes.
Effie today, Effie tomorrow, Effie Forever.
