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.

"A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight!"
