Entertainment Weekly Reveals First Exclusive Look For Katniss Everdeen Barbie

Entertainment Weekly has exclusively revealed Katniss Everdeen Barbie which is aimed towards ‘The Hunger Games’ fans and also collectors.

Now, EW is happy to share the exclusive first look at the iconic heroine after being filtered through Mattel’s Barbie-making factory. This Katniss isn’t wearing her reaping dress — instead, and rather fittingly, she’s wearing what she wore into the Games and comes complete with a miniature mockingjay pin, bow and arrow, forest-tromping boots, and that one, plump braid. You can find a full-body shot of the Katniss Barbie — as well as further details about the doll’s creation from its designer, Bill Greening — below.

Katniss Everdeen Barbie designer, Bill Greening, talks about his thoughts when designing it:

“I chose to dress her in the outfit she wears during the games, since this is where all the non-stop action takes place and is instantly recognizable by fans,” says Greening of the Katniss Barbie. “Of course, she wears her mockingjay pin proudly on her lapel.”

Designers at Mattel created Katniss’ look by going straight to the source and examining the actual costume that Jennifer Lawrence wore inThe Hunger Games. “Hopefully Hunger Gamesfans can appreciate the attention to detail,” Greening says.”The doll’s minimalistic style and details — such as her loosely braided hair and makeup-free look — also really embody the heroic character Katniss.”

Of course, it took a true fan to create such a doll. “I am a huge Hunger Games fan and loved all three books, so it was truly an amazing experience for me to be able to design the Katniss Barbie doll,” Greening says. “I think it really pays tribute to Katniss and The Hunger Games.”

The Hunger Games‘ Katniss Barbie will be available everywhere in August and for pre-order starting today at 12 p.m. ET at BarbieCollector.com and various other online retail outlets.
