My project is very interesting so far. I have finished 3 of my A2 research sheets and am currently working on my outfit for my character. I am a bit worried that I won’t finish the project in time just because we have been given so much work. My aim is to finish the projects always as soon as possible so I don’t have that much work to do the day before the deadline in November.
My chosen character is Ching Shih, a Chinese prostitute and later pirate lord who lived during the Qing dynasty. The research on English websites was very limited, so I asked one of my Chinese friends to help me out with Chinese resources. I find her a very interesting character as she stood up for women, was fair but ruthless and had a such untypical role for a woman in society. I felt that she would really fit in the Hunger Games in the role of one of the tributes. The fact that she has history as a prostitute and a pirate would make her costume very interesting. I also chose this movie as my inspiration because I truly love the costumes in it. Clothes play a very big role in the Hunger Games, especially in the contrast between the colourful and crazy clothes of the Capitol and the dull and practical clothes of the districts.
