EW.com shared the exclusive first look at the iconic heroine from The Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen. Katniss is wearing what she wore into the Games and it comes complete with a miniature mockingjay pin, bow and arrow, boots, and her signature braid. Bill Greening gives us further details behind her creation,
“I chose to dress her in the outfit she wears during the games, since this is where all the non-stop action takes place and is instantly recognizable by fans,” says Greening of the Katniss Barbie. “Of course, she wears her mockingjay pin proudly on her lapel. Hopefully Hunger Games fans can appreciate the attention to detail. The doll’s minimalistic style and details — such as her loosely braided hair and makeup-free look — also really embody the heroic character Katniss. I am a huge Hunger Games fan and loved all three books, so it was truly an amazing experience for me to be able to design the Katniss Barbie doll,” Greening says. “I think it really pays tribute to Katniss and The Hunger Games.”
The Hunger Games‘ Katniss Barbie will be available everywhere in August and for pre-order starting TODAY at 12 p.m. ET at BarbieCollector.com and various other online retail outlets. I have to say she looks alot different then I thought she would. Will you be buying Katniss?
