Lionsgate continues its Hunger Games: Mockingjay marketing effort where it’s bringing us messages from the Capitol resigned to quell rebellion in the Districts with a mix of platitudes and veiled threats about what will happen if they don’t quieten down.
That continues with the ‘living portraits’ below, featuring Peeta and Johanna, who are essentially being held hostage by President Snow and used in his efforts to end the disquiet – and of course showing them off shows Katniss that she’s risking their lives by doing anything troublesome.
Take a look at the portraits and the Capitol’s messages about them below.
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. 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.
Here we also see Johanna in an exquisite Alon Livne creation that “juxtaposes the flowing drapery of classic statuary while the super modern and sculptural iridescent white bodice references the branch motif of the Panem Seal.” With plunging lines and slits as daring and divine as the warrior woman herself, every element of Johanna’s ensemble exudes her fierce strength and enduring pride- a true darling of the Capitol.
