Hey! It's Karly here posting about my Happy Hunger Games Tour look!
I am a HUGE fan of the Hunger Games. When the books came out I was very hesitant to read them because of the craze that kind of followed, and after Twilight (sorry, no Twilight fans here...) I really cringed at the thought of another series I wouldn't enjoy and would waste my precious reading time on.
Then my mum started telling me how much the main character reminded her of me (first book Katniss) and I could not resist reading them to find out. Then obviously I couldn't put the books down and a new fan was born!
I was very excited when Marissa stated she was going to have a Hunger Games tour. The Giveaway is just amazing (which do NOT forget to enter!)

I LOVE the styles and designs in the Hunger Games movies and you will be seeing future inspired outfits from me in the future, but today I am sharing our "Girl On Fire" look.
My inspiration was from Katniss spinning and her (pretend) wedding dress catching on fire and changing.
I used the Uptown/Downtown dress and the new (free) expansions. I knew the cowl was perfect for this. Then I went about using RIT dyes to try and do the color ombre effect of her dress going up into flames. I love dying fabric, just in case it wasn't obvious.
I know we are semi crossing movies using Merida's bow in our shoot, but it's the only bow we own. I also may have had her use my knitting needle as an arrow.....
So that's our Girl On Fire look.
