The New 'Hunger Games' Capitol Portrait Series Is Basically the Best Thing Ever

(Photo via The scene where Katniss volunteers to go into the Hunger Games still gives me chills!

I have a confession to make. I'm a hugeno really, huge — geek when it comes to the Hunger Games. Way back before Jennifer Lawrence was ever Katniss Everdeen, back even before the third book hit shelves, I saw this weird fan thing on Twitter where you could sign up to be a citizen of Panem. Obviously, I had to do it. (Fun, or not so fun, fact: I was cast into District 2!) 

My fandom obsession didn't stop there. I also registered to be a member of the "Capitol Couture" club. Yes, that's exactly what it sounds like, it's an official Hunger Games fashion club! (Are you laughing at me yet?) 

To be honest, I kind of forgot about my membership — for shame, I know! — that is, until today, when I received this in an email titled, "Introducing the Capitol Portraits."

Are you ready for this?

BEHOLD: the first-ever Catching Fire Capitol Portrait starring the one-and-only Effie Trinket!

According to the Capitol Couture website  — yes, there's a website —  "Effie enchants in an exploding silhouette of chiffon and organza blooms. Never one to waver in her fashionable footwear, her heel-less boots are shod with a golden horse-shoe platform."

There's also a countdown on the site that's ticking down the time until the next portrait in the series is released. From the looks of it, the next one goes live at 6 p.m. (ET). You know, I'll be watching the clock — Katniss has got to pop up some time!

Are you a major Hunger Games fan, too? Did I oversell the coolness of this whole thing in the headline? I'm dying to know your thoughts! Sound off in the comments, below.
