GUESS where where we were last night, ummm ~ or should I say, this morning!!!!
And of course, Ellen had to go in costume! And her costume required feathers, lots of feathers, lots and lots and lots of feathers. Feathers that she cut off of boas (that I don't usually even like to have in the house because of all the little floaty feathers that come off of them!) and used to decorate her shirts to be the Mocking Jay.
All of her friends had read the books, and one was frantically reading the last chapter
before she saw the movie!
The fact that my children have so much fun with life ~ making their own costumes and dressing up when any occasion presents itself delights me, and I always encourage it...but when I say that I will be cleaning up black and white feathers for the next year...that is not an understatement!
Here they are putting the finishing touches on the costume, counting
down the hours until the movie starts!
Just wanted to prove to you that I was not exaggerating....take this scene and multiply it times ten!

"Ta Dah"............. :)
If you did not read the book, a Mocking Jay is a bird in the book that is genetically altered Mocking Bird with Blue Jay, and it can perfectly mimic what it hears...and if you did
not read the book ~you should!
It is really a good series! One of those books you cannot put down!
Here they are "flitting" around the theater....people would stop them to take photos with them...of course, that made their day ( or night )...Did I make it clear that this was the midnight premiere?
A few others dressed up...it wasn't near what you see at the Harry Potter Premiere but
it was festive.
These girls had a very festive time!
But, going to bed at 3:00 AM (yes, that is what time it was by the time we got home!) makes getting up at 6:45 AM a bit difficult...however, these girls pulled it off! I did ask them to show me what they
really felt like.........
I thought so!
