The first image of the highly awaited Hunger Games Barbie 2012 has just been published by Entertainment Weekly. The doll is created by Bill Greening and is wearing the games costume that Jennifer Lawrence wore in the film.
“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. 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. I think it really pays tribute to Katniss and The Hunger Games.” said the designer.
The Hunger Games Katniss Barbie will be available in August and you can pre-order starting today at 12 p.m. on BarbieCollector.com and other official Mattel dealers. Are you going to buy her? She’s not on my list.
