Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark, the triumphant victors of the 74th Hunger Games have embarked on their historic Victory Tour, and we’re bringing you every glorious detail! As the dominant duo makes their way across our nation, we’ll keep you apprised of every heroic speech and dazzling photo op.
Everdeen and Mellark’s first stop was District 11. Panem’s agriculture hub greeted our victors with open arms on the verandah of the stately District 11 Justice Building. The mayor gave a rousing speech and the victors received gorgeous bouquets of flowers and commemorative plaques. Mellark’s moving acceptance address even elicited a kiss from Katniss!
The jubilant pair was then whisked off to prepare for a formal dinner in the rotunda of the Justice Building. Every D11 dignitary attended the glorious fete which featured delicacies straight from District 11’s agricultural bounty.
Katniss and Peeta danced the night away, and were caught not once, but TWICE trying to sneak away to be alone. Those star-crossed lovers are borderline delirious in their love for one another! After a whirlwind celebration, the love-birds were back on the train and ready for their next stop - District 10.
We at the Ministry always encourage creative expression of your love for the Capitol! We'd like to share some exceptional examples of this expression by some incredibly talented citizens.
Grodansnagel/The Frog's Nail is a digital artist from Sweden. Her evocative edits of the Capitol Portraits are beautiful and thoughtful. And some of the portraits we missed have been brought to life in her wonderful work. Don't tell President Snow, but we like some of these better than the originals. Follow her on tumblr and check out her deviantArt!
Check out this fine example of Capitol patriotism! Michael Dorcy has created a handcrafted model of President Snow's mansion, complete with Panem's flag! Incredible! In addition to making models, Michael is an artist who draws, paints, sculpts and also does set design. Maybe we'll see Michael winning the Panem Academy Award for set design someday. Check out his many creations on youtube.
Last week the Capitol unveiled 11 Official Capitol Portraits. Now that we've all had a chance to see the official versions, we thought you might like to take a look at what some of our favorite online artists have done with them. Here are some of our favorite edits:
Our favorite edit thus far is by tumblr user I-want-to-know-nothing (@thelosttribute on twitter). This beautiful edit features all eleven portraits.
Nikola Stojkovic is a tumblr user and digital artist that we really admire. His edits are always gorgeous and inspiring! Here's part of his series of Capitol Portrait edits.
Ariverofpureemotion did what most of us wanted to do - put Peeta and Katniss together in one portrait! The Everlark/Peenis shippers can now breathe a sigh of relief.
Another version of Katniss + Peeta by AliciaPoole:
And AliciaPoole also did a favor for the Gale and Katniss shippers:
And now for the boys! Gale, Peeta and Finnick by katnisspeetamellark.
Last, but certainly not least, is Buttercup by tributedesign on deviantArt.
