It's funny how things work out. I was bummed that I wasn't gutsy enough (and was too broke!) to put a bid in on any of the items sold at the auction for The Hunger Games costumes two Saturdays ago. If I had my druthers, I would have tried to have won the Katniss Reaping dress and one of the hunting jackets, but then again, they probably went to the die-hard bidders who have the space and money to display the pieces properly in their homes.
My folks took me down to a vintage flea market in San Diego the next day and lo and behold, I found this beauty.
I'm planning to work with my mom to try to transform this dress into my own replica of the Reaping dress. I'll post pictures as I start to progress.
