Peeta Mellark: Spirit of Strength

Capitol Couture has been waiting eagerly for the next wave of incredible images of our cherished elite, and here they are! Fresh from the excitement of the most eventful Quarter Quell to date, we are thrilled and honored to present the new Capitol Citizen Living Portraits.

As our Quarter Quell victors, Peeta Mellark and Johanna Mason hold the distinct honor of being the first Capitol citizens featured within a Living Portrait.  Peeta stands tall and true in his Capitol Citizen Living Portrait, his matte leather Unconditional ensemble showcasing a stone-like texture and channeling the victor’s quiet strength, completed by shirt and shoes courtesy of Maison Martin Margiela. The paper collar piece, designed by David Mason, mirrors the sculptural elements in Johanna’s dress and gives a stern ambiance to the baker’s son. With an unprecedented two victories under his belt, Peeta is no longer the boy who bravely faced the 74th Hunger Games, but a true Capitol hero.   

Citizens can witness the artist’s hand-selected series of Living Portraits in person at SOCA this summer.

This is freaking terrifying and heartbreaking. Watch it all the way through. He’s turning, turning and you’re like OK. They brainwashed him, dressed him up in televangelist white, and are turning and filming him. Then he comes around just past the first 360 rotation and catches sight of the camera and gets visibly uncomfortable. Like he forgot what was going on. Cameras haven’t done him any good and no matter what they do to him, I don’t think they can get him to like being on camera. His gaze slides elsewhere. He keeps turning. As he’s coming around to face the camera for the third time—you can see him trying to steel himself, swallowing hard. His eyes are shifting about. And the look he gives the camera is haunting. And then he has to look away.

Contrast to Peeta on camera during the games or at the pre-game interviews. He played to the crowds so perfectly. He worked them. He acted. But he knew who he was then and he wanted something very specific. He wanted to save Katniss and to a lesser degree himself. Now he doesn’t know who he is or what he wants and so cameras are terrifying.

There is some A+ marketing going on for this film, that’s all I have to say.


So @TheCapitolPN tweeted this

which was promptly deleted. (G-Bb-A-D are the notes to Rue’s whistle.)

But if you had clicked inspect element before it was deleted


"You silence our voices, but we are still heard."

HOW COOL IS THIS MARKETING?!?! Like the rebels are hacking into the capitol’s twitter!!!!

(Thanks toastbabeis and mockingjaysource for noticing it and jenliamjosh for reblogging)




this broke my heart

like he looks at her like she’s his little sister

and they’re playing some game

Can I have the AU where the two that survived were Rue and Thresh? Imagine Rue finds Thresh right away and they team up and Thresh makes a pact with her — he promises if he can get them both to the end that he will make sure she is the one who goes home. Where he says, “Fuck them and their games. I’m going to protect you, little bird. I’m going to get you home.”

Watch the gamekeepers try to kill them right away because of what Thresh says. Because he’s fighting, not to win, but to protect Rue from the games. But the sponsors keep sending her and Thresh food and medicine and the Districts too because watching Thresh carry Rue through fire and get injured protecting her is too much to bear. 

Can I have the AU where it’s Thresh and Rue with the nightlock, after the mutts attack and Cato is dead and it’s Thresh about to take the poison and send her home? But it’s Rue who won’t let her ‘big brother’ go alone after so many already died protecting her (imagine Katniss dies protecting her) and they decide, okay, together and…

Rue has always been the Mockingjay, but imagine that she lived.

"I just don’t want them to change me."

“How would they change you?”

“I don’t know. They’d turn me into something I’m not.
I just don’t want to be another piece in their game, you know? [..]
If I’m gonna die, I want to still be me”.

"She was Finnick’s mentor, you know. […] She was half his family.”
