The Hunger Games' Katniss Everdeen Inspired Look!

Alright...I'm a total bookworm. I'm not ashamed of it either! I totally love to read. When I first came across the Hunger Games Trilogy, I didn't think I'd be interested (I'm into sappy love stories and fantasies, lol). But I just couldn't help picking up the first book after reading so many great reviews about it. I have never, ever been so sucked into a book before...I couldn't stop reading! It is intense, unique, fun and terrifying. I definitely recommend this trilogy!


Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen 
From Wikipedia:
The Hunger Games takes place in an unidentified future time period after the destruction of North America, in a nation known as Panem. Panem consists of a wealthy Capitol and twelve surrounding, poorer districts. District 12, where the book begins, is located in the coal-rich region that was formerly Appalachia.
As punishment for a previous rebellion against the Capitol, every year one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 from each district are selected at random and forced to participate in the Hunger Games, a televised event in which the participants, or "tributes", must fight to the death in a dangerous outdoor arena until only one remains. The story follows fatherless 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, a girl from District 12 who volunteers for the 74th Games in place of her younger sister, Primrose. Also participating from District 12 is Peeta Mellark, a boy whom Katniss knows from school and who once gave her bread when her family was starving.

The first look that I created was inspired by Katniss' surroundings; The woods. She lives and hunts there and it is her main source of survival. The green and brown represent the foliage in the woods, and the gold is for the golden mockingjay pin that was given to her by the mayor's daughter. (note that katniss doesn't really wear makeup; this look is INSPIRED by her and her surroundings)
