Happy Yuletart, dualbunny!

Title: Victor Paper Dolls™ Presents Kiss Me Katniss: The Girl on Fire
Gift for: dualbunny
Artist: kaiserkuchen
Rating: G
Fandom: The Hunger Games
Characters: Katniss Everdeen
Artist notes: In my mind, the Capitol totally has a line of Hunger Games-themed merchandise (compilations of "best" kills, come on you know this to be true) so this could be part of the line focused for children. Get 'em while they're still young and all that. dualbunny, I hope you like it and that this counts as "expanding the universe" for you ♥!
Summary: From the makers who brought you Fancy Finnick Odair! The latest design for the popular Victor Paper Dolls™ series is finally here: Style Katniss Everdeen, Capitol's newest darling, in 3 stunning new outfits!



dualbunny, your artist has also offered to send you a higher quality version of your art after the reveals.

*laughs* Oh this is so great! I might just have to cut it out and make it into a real paper doll!

Thank youuuu! I'll probably make a post on my own LJ with the bigger HQ version soon, could ping you with a link when that happens?

Cool premise! And I like seeing your interpretation of the outfits Katniss wore.

Thanks! I love drawing clothing and especially dresses, so this was great fun <33

excellent stuff - what a fabulous idea, too - paper dolls are awesome.
Love the jumpsuit on the right!

My inner eight-year old still believes that paper dolls are totally rad, so I am very glad to hear that I am not alone here :DD Thank you!

These outfits are great! I love the pattern on the one on the right. And the detail on all of them. Great job!

One of the things I loved the most about the books were the fashion descriptions of all the crazy Capitol outfits, so I had a blast coming up with my own spin on things. Glad you liked!

Awesome and really creepy idea. And lovely outfits ... now I kind of do want to play with the paper doll.

Glad to have amused and perhaps vaguely creeped out ;DD. I will most likely be putting up a post on my own LJ with the bigger version soon, I could ping you with a link then if you want?

PS love the icon!

OHMYGOD. oh my god. I am absolutely speechless. The concept and the clothing designs are just fabulous, and then presenting it as a piece of in universe merchandise....?! BRILLIANCE. I EXPLODED.

HEE <33 Thank you so much! I was pretty pleased with how it all turned out in the end-- clearly the best inspiration comes from walking home from work, late at night XD

Oh! Such a clever idea! I love all the little details and side texts. Brilliant!
kaiserkuchen

Thank youuu! I had the most fun with the detail work and the coloring, ngl :DDD

This is AWESOME. And also kind of creepy because the Capitol would so do this.
kaiserkuchen
Jan. 7th, 2011 05:30 am (UTC)
Hee, thanks! I figured that well, if they already pimp out their Victors, a little ~merchandising~ is the least that we can also expect from them XD.

Cinna would be so ashamed his designs were used like this by the Capitol, but omg I admit I love them!! ♥
kaiserkuchen

I bet he would rail about this in private to Haymitch or something but then have to give flattered soundbites when asked about this ("Even Cinna, the official stylist of Katniss Everdeen approves! BUY THE NEW SET NOW, SUPPLIES LIMITED.")

This is a brilliant concept and so in keeping with everything else we know about the Hunger Games world! (I mean, really, why not collectable merch for children?)

I enjoy how you did the fire dress, that is adorable and I want to wear it :D
kaiserkuchen
Jan. 7th, 2011 05:35 am (UTC)
It's a fun mental exercise-- because really, where would the Capitol even draw the line? CLEARLY THERE ARE NO LINES.

Thank you so much! Figuring out the fire dress was a challenge for me at first. In my head it was originally a floor length one, but since I already had the long wedding dress, it became a kicky cocktail-esque frock to balance things out instead :D

EEEEEEE. :D :D :D

THIS IS SO PERFECT. I CAN'T WAIT TO MAKE THEM AFTER REVEALS.

Seriously--thank you so much mystery artist! The concept is fantastically clever all by itself, *and* they're gorgeous. \o/ I *adore* how you designed the costumes, and the 12 on her top makes me ridiculously happy for some reason. *g*

I AM SO THRILLED YOU LIKE IT, AHHHH ♥

I was torn at first between doing some stylized portraits like you mentioned in your wish-list, but then once this idea got hold I just couldn't resist. MMMH COSTUME DESIGN <33 I'll ping you once I get a post together with the HQ versions up on my LJ then~

Also I am especially amused that we ended up doing art for each other and thank you again for that fabulous megafoxyawesome Caroline! I keep going back to that entry and preening about its loveliness :DD

What a clever concept (and delightfully warped)! I love it.
kaiserkuchen

So happy you liked them, thank youu <33

I have never even heard of this fandom but this is so cool! I think these people would have gotten me early on without much trouble-- I love paperdolls >_>

I particularly enjoy the little note that "the FUN starts here". Haha.
kaiserkuchen

I can really recommend the books, they are nearly impossible to put down once you start :DD

(and yeah, I totally couldn't resist adding that little note :DD Glad you liked!)

I can't get over how amazing this is, from the innovation of the concept to the execution of the paperdoll flat itself! I love the caveat at the bottom, I love the outfits, I love everything about it and I haven't even read the books! Magnificent!
kaiserkuchen
Jan. 7th, 2011 05:59 am (UTC)
So your comment basically made me roll around in flattered delight when I got this, so thank you so much for that ♥ ♥.

I can really recommend the books and if you want, I can ping you when I've set up a post on my LJ with the HQ version?

This is great! I LOVE the girl on fire dress, and the wetsuit is basically exactly how I pictured it in the book!
kaiserkuchen
Jan. 7th, 2011 06:00 am (UTC)
For all that I was was nervous about doing the wetsuit design, I'm really pleased with the lovely reception its been getting! Thank youuuu :D
