Way back when, when the Hunger Games movie came out, I wanted a Mockingjay pin, but I didn't feel like shelling out ten dollars for one on the internet, so I made myself one out of shrinky-dink. Then I decided on a whim to make myself a military-style beret and wear the pin as a beret flash.

I'm in the rebel army now! This is also the face I made for my passport photo.

They're showing the movie on my campus so I dug the hat out again, and then I put on makeup and took webcam photos 'cause I didn't want to study Chinese.

This is the snapshot I send home to my family in District 11.


Military people out there, please, judge not my salute.


Don't you know there's a war on?

It turned out way too gathered and ruffly to look properly military. Oh well. Also the blue reminds me of U.N. peacekeeping troops, which reminds me of Peacekeepers, so it's sort of a fail. But that's the fleece I had on hand.
Thanks for looking! What do you think?

I'm looking for Simplicity 6340 (the 1970's sailor dress). PM me if you've got a copy to swop or sell! Cheesy
