In honor of Catching Fire I had to share these pics of my daughter dressed up as Rue.
After reading The Hunger Games & knowing we were going to be in the area they filmed the movie she asked if I could make “mommy/daughter” Katniss & Rue costumes for a photoshoot, so this is what I was able to throw together at the last minute.
Later that year (2012) at GMX (after I’d had time to improve her costume some) she met Dayo Okeniyi (who played Thresh in The Hunger Games) & he was so excited that he chased her down to get a picture with her. :D
The pic of my daughter with the much more age appropriate Katniss was of our wonderful foreign exchange student (also taken at GMX, her first Con ever). They were aged 12 & 16 respectively at the time of the photo, just like their book counterparts.
We are not just beautiful, we are dark and powerful. No, more. We star-crossed lovers from District 12, who suffered so much and enjoyed so little the rewards of our victory, do not seek the fans’ favor, grace them with our smiles, or catch their kisses. We are unforgiving.
With the growing popularity of cosplay in the world of pop culture (as well as our own Best Cosplay Ever feature), the cosplay community has grown rich with costumers who specialize in creative and intensive skills, from sewing to prop work to makeup artistry, to help bring their beloved fictional characters to life. However, one cannot deny the integral role that cosplay photography plays in the cosplay community, both in properly documenting costume work and utilizing their own artistic talents in completing the transformation of bringing a fictional character to life. Going forward, this feature will occasionally spotlight a specific cosplay photographer who’s skills could put Peter Parker to shame.
Today’s featured cosplay photographer is Bill Hicks, who specializes in stunning cinematic Star Warscosplay portraiture.
