My Hunger Games Attire! {Finally}

 As promised, I'm finally showing you all my Hunger Games t-shirt I made for the midnight premiere!

 Me and a couple gal pals decided we didn't want to pay almost $25 dollars on the Mockingjay shirt from Hot Topic that everyone would undoubtedly be wearing,
so we hopped on over to Jo-Ann craft and picked out supplies to make some ourselves!

We started by printing out a stencil and cutting it out of stencil paper:
Then we used the black and sparkly gold paint we picked out
 to paint over the stencil onto our shirts {that is my friend Emily working on hers}:


Before I stenciled on the Mockingjay, I spray painted some red and orange first to give the appearance of fire/flames behind the bird. However, against my teal shirt it turned out looking green! Oh well!

And here's the final product! The shirt closest to the camera is my friend Shayla's and mine is in the background :)


 I must've been feeling particularly crafty that day because I also made my own ghetto version of the famous pin from a bird necklace I own and a keyring! haha!

On an exciting side note: the whole night would not have been possible if I had not WON the tickets to the premiere thanks to Facebook and this local Toyota dealer! I couldn't believe it! I wasn't going to go because all the showings had sold out, 
but alas Lady Luck saved me :)

The line wrapped around the theater! Oh and apparently Justin Bieber showed up, do ya see him??

 Shirt: Jo-Ann/ pants: Gap/ shoes: Payless/ denim jacket: Ross/ hoodie: Hollister

 I had a total blast and I want to see the movie again! For once a movie stayed completely true to the book. I would suggest reading the books and seeing the movie
 if you haven't already!

This turned out so great! I didn't like any of the shirts at Hot Topic and then the ones on Etsy were too expensive.

what a cool idea to make your own THG tee! and I bet it's so much more awesome than the original ones sold in the stores. at least you know you're the only one who has it ;)
