First Look: Cinna’s Fire Costumes For Katniss And Peeta In The Hunger Games

So far, when it comes to the character of Cinna in The Hunger Games, we’ve been focusing on how Lenny Kravitz will portray him: His simple outfits save for the signature gold eyeliner, and what he says to Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) in the movie trailer. But what about Cinna’s evocative costumes from the book, and the real-life costume designer who has to match that?

Judianna Makovsky basically has to emulate a brand; since the first Hunger Games book came out in 2008, fans have come up with art and costumes envisioning the pieces described by author Suzanne Collins. But judging from this new image from EW, Makovsky has brought Cinna’s designs to life.

Pictured are Katniss and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) getting ready for their grand entrance into the pre-Games interviews. As director Gary Ross explains,

What Cinna was trying to do was create something that came out of District 12, out of a coal mining world, with a fresh, bold look to it. So Judianna went to this wonderful black reflective material that glistened like coal or graphite and would obviously work well in the Tribute parade where Katniss becomes the Girl on Fire.

As you can see, Lenny-as-Cinna is holding a blowtorch, prepared to set Katniss and Peeta’s flame-retardant costumes on fire.  (She looks more confident than poor Peeta.) We’re also really intrigued by Katniss’ braids; hopefully we’ll get a higher-quality shot soon so we can figure out how intricate they made her hairstyle.

Sorry! This poll is now closed.
