The Real Star of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire: That Cowl

Can we talk for a minute about the real star of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire? I'm not talking about Jennifer Lawrence, or Philip Seymour Hoffman. We already know they're great. I'm talking about KATNISS' COWL:

This cowl popped up in the first few minutes of the movie, and it's all I could think of this morning while getting dressed in my drafty old house. Designed by Maria Dora and costume designer Trish Summerville, the cowl was hand knitted! According to this interview, "the cowl was woven entirely by hand and it took two people several weeks to knit it."

There are similar ones on Etsy, if you have the funds:

Found a couple of resources online for knitting your own (and I'd love to see them if you do!) 

Really, all of the costuming was great, and a lot of it was real-world wearable, too:

At least, I wish I could wear this somewhere:
