Katniss Everdeen - Reaping Day by Verdaera Katniss Everdeen - Reaping Day by Verdaera
Here is a full shot of my Katniss Reaping dress, complete with shoes. I managed to snag a pair of the screen-accurate shoes which were more affordable because they were 'imperfect'. I dyed them several times to get them from bright red to a brownish tone. I made the dress from a floral/leaf rayon print on vintage fabric, which I stripped back the color and overdyed in blue (exactly how the original was created). I put on clear, faceted buttons from my grandmother's vintage button collection.

***PLEASE NOTE: My work is not 'cosplay', it is costuming. Costuming is the art of creating costumes and designing a character look. 'Cosplay' is the activity of role playing while in costume, which not an activity I participate in, and is often confused for costuming.. Please only refer to my work as Costuming. Thank you for your understanding.***

I love how you've rendered all the little details, like the gathers/smocking near the shoulders, and all the little darts at the waist.
