Let’s talk about this scene: I haven’t seen this scene discussed before in this context but look at Effie during this moment. For a split second, she was relieved that Haymitch was chosen because in her mind, it meant that Peeta was saved. Spared from the Games. Sure, she was distraught that Katniss was the only female tribute from District 12 but she couldn’t control it. But with the males. Haymitch & Peeta. She had two options and her hope was not Peeta and it wasn’t.. But what she didn’t count on was that Peeta can volunteer to take Haymitch’s place and all that hope she had was now gone. To further expand on her development; this moment of volunteering is different to the first film: in the first film, she was excited about the prospect… a girl volunteering for her younger sister. But now.. not anymore…
This is the moment when she realises how terrible the Games truly is and this is the moment that for how ever long she has been a escort for the tributes of The Hunger Games, Effie Trinket is no longer thinking about the entertainment she brings to the Capitol; she is now thinking how much her humanity has been lost by sending these innocent children into a deadly arena.
Many Ladies wear it this way
FUCK I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS GIFSET SINCE THE MINUTE I SAW THOSE PHOTOS
