I knew pretty early on that we weren't going to get an accurate reproduction of the jewel fire interview dress in the "Hunger Games" movie. The top of it made a brief appearance in the early trailers and that was enough to show that there were no jewels studded on the bright red gown. The reason was obvious - sewing on that many jewels by hand would be an intensively laborous task, and the budget apparently couldn't handle it.
I was fairly pleased with their solution - loved the jewel stickers on Katniss's face - but still missed seeing a good rendition of the gown that most captured my imagination in the series. The solution of course was to draw up my own version. I completed the sketch back in November, but due to loosing my tablet pen, was unable to color it until today.
It was well worth the wait, don't you think?
