The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Reveals Living Portraits of Former Champions Peeta and Johanna

Hunger_Games_Mockingjay(PCM) In anticipation of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 November 21st release, The Capitol has released new promotional material, highlighting two former Hunger Games champions, Peeta Mellark and Johanna Mason.

Check out the official statement released by The Capitol below:

The Capitol has outdone itself once again. Still basking in the stoic radiance that was last year’s stunning Capitol Portraits, we here at Capitol Couture have nevertheless been waiting eagerly for the next wave of incredible images of our cherished elite. Fresh from the excitement of the most eventful Quarter Quell to date, we are thrilled and honored to present the new Capitol Citizen Living Portraits.

As our Quarter Quell victors, Peeta Mellark and Johanna Mason hold the distinct honor of being the first Capitol citizens featured within a Living Portrait. Here we see Johanna in an exquisite Alon Livne creation that “juxtaposes the flowing drapery of classic statuary while the super modern and sculptural iridescent white bodice references the branch motif of the Panem Seal.” With plunging lines and slits as daring and divine as the warrior woman herself, every element of Johanna’s ensemble (including her Alexander Wang shoes and hand-carved marble bangles by Chen Chen and Kai Williams) exudes her fierce strength and enduring pride- a true darling of the Capitol.

Already all the rage with the Capitol elite, Capitol families are lining up to view these astoundingly realistic hologram displays in person. Citizens can witness the artist’s hand-selected series of Capitol Citizen Living Portraits in person at SOCA this summer.

Check out the living portraits below!

Mayfly Mayhem on the Mississippi

Mayflies(PCM) Think the swarms of mosquitoes that plague most people over the summer are a nuisance? How about swarms of mayflies so large they cause car accidents?

The Mississippi Valley was swarmed by the recently hatched flies this weekend.

Mayflies hatch and erupt in large swarms on the Mississippi every year, but scientists say this year’s swarm is larger than in previous years.

The mayflies presence is actually a good sign for the area; it denotes a healthy river system capable of supporting life, but it definitely makes life tough on locals.

Reports were coming in from Minnesota of swarms so large that they blocked out the sun and caused poor visibility, even resulting in a 3 car accident that injured three and sent one to the hospital.

Aside from the poor visibility, the swarms of flies have been known to pose a hazard to drivers; when the flies are smashed on the road, they form a thick oily buildup resulting in poor driving conditions.

Some towns have even taken to pouring sand on the road when the mayflies hatch to provide more traction for drivers.

While they are a huge nuisance, completely covering local businesses and homes withMayflies2 their ever-buzzing selves, the mayflies almost slip into nonexistence as soon as they swarmed up.

The flies belonging to the order Ephemeroptera, whose Greek translation roughly translates into “lasting-a-day insect,” have a very short adult lifespan, ranging anywhere from a few minutes to a few days.

While locals aren’t over the moon about the mayflies arrival, experts, scientists, and those in the Department of Natural Resources are rejoicing in the healthy signs of life from the Mississippi.

Mayfly larva thrives in healthy freshwater systems, and the record numbers from this year’s hatching point to a healthy river system with healthy levels of lead and mercury, two pollutants that mayfly larva are highly sensitive too.

This year’s large swarms are also good news for someone else; the hungry fish in the Mississippi and local waterways. The mayflies provide a nice source of protein and nutrients for the fish, making a nice meal that will hopefully support and help grow local fish populations.
