I’m in love. Whenever any world dives into alternative forms of media to express the setting, I squee like a kid in a candy store. While it’s too soon to tell you what I’ve been doing with my own work, today I’d like to share one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a while. The Hunger Games is a young adult series penned by Suzanne Collins and the movie debuts in theatres at the end of March. I haven’t read the books myself, but the concept reminds me of the films The Running Man crossed with 1984 and a teeny bit of Judge Dredd for good measure. City? Evil. Citizens? Victims. Teenage victims that must be sacrificed in the annual Games. Only the winner survives.
A number of sites were constructed that tap into Collins’s setting. Omniously, the hub is called The Capitol and readers get to be the Mayor of the different districts. How cool is that? The one that caught my eye was Capitol Couture, which is dedicated to the fashion in Capitol City. WOW. Very haute couture with an emphasis on a few pieces. Simple content, big pow for impact, and very well done.
