A lot of the Hunger Games news this week was surrounding the MTV Movie Awards. “Catching Fire” came away big with wins for Movie, Female, and Male performances. But that’s not all that is going on with The Hunger Games. Parents are still complaining about the book not being appropriate for kids and Mockingjay filming continues.
I’m always on the lookout for creative Hunger Games shirts beyond the ones that I see everyone else wearing. When Redbubble gave me the chance to review their shirts plus give away a certificate to my readers, I jumped at it!
First Redbubble sent me a $50 certificate to pick out whatever I wanted (keep reading to find out how you can win one yourself). I immediately knew I wanted to get a Hunger Games shirt for myself and also wanted to check out what my 13-year-0ld daughter might like.
We were like kids in a candy store trying to figure out what we wanted. So many fun pop culture inspired shirts! Some of my favorite Hunger Games inspired shirts included:
- Professional Fangirl
- Varsity Archery
- Be My Peeta
- Make Bread Not War
- Just One More Chapter
- Everdeen 13
- Mellark Bakery
- And a lot of images you just have to SEE!
While I quickly settled on “My Patronus is a Mockingjay” (because I geek out to both Hunger Games AND Harry Potter), my daughter started down a path of finding shirts inspired by Divergent and The Mortal Instruments. The selections for those were just as cool. She is a little infatuated with TMI right now, so she ended up with a shirt that said “We live and breathe w0rds. –will herondale” and she customized it to be pink.
Speaking of customization. One of the things that I love about Redbubble (other than the fact that it encourages creativity and art!) is that you can customize most of the designs. I went with a darker shirt with a regular t-shirt cut. My daughter wanted something lighter (but not pink) and wanted a girl’s cut shirt.
We were so excited waiting for them to arrive that my daughter actually asked EVERY DAY when she came home from school if it was here yet. We ripped open the package and fell in love with the shirts. the quality was top-notch and they were exactly what we ordered. We’ve now worn then and washed them and they are still in great shape.
So how do you get your hands on cool shirts like ours? First, you head to Redbubble and check out their selection. You might end up buying one right now to show it off before school gets out! Second, you can enter our contest below (must be 18 or older and U.S. resident). If you are the lucky person to be picked, you will get a $50 certificate from Redbubble to order for yourself.

More Hunger Games news this week including some deleted scenes, fun things for fans to do, and MTV Movie Award nominations.
We came across these shirts at CafePress that say “Train Like You’ve Been Picked for the Hunger Games” and thought they would be perfect motivation for working out.
You can get them in tank tops, short sleeved t-shirts, and long-sleeved t-shirts. Depending on which you choose, they also come in a variety of different colors. Matching buttons are on sale today for $1.99. They also ship internationally.
Perfect for the Hunger Games fan who needs a little extra boost during their exercise routines.
Hunger Games: Catching Fire is about to be released on DVD and Blu-Ray! Do you have your copy ordered yet?
Amazon has 2 different options. The DVD comes with an UltraViolet Digital Copy for $15.99. The better deal is the DVD/Blu-ray Combo + UltraViolet Digital Copy for $19.99. Both come with their Pre-order Price Guarantee that if the price falls between now and when it ships, you will get the lower price. I’ve had this happen to me a couple of times.
Looking around, these seem to be the best prices. BestBuy is selling them for $17.99 and $22.99. Walmart has the DVD for $17.99 but the Blu-ray for $19.96. For 3 cents difference, you are better off ordering from Amazon because their shipping is more reliable.
Hopefully Amazon will offer something where if you buy it from them you can also watch it digitally for free. We saw that happen with other similar movies like Twilight but we haven’t heard anything so far.
Have you pre-ordered your copy? Will you be watching Catching Fire this weekend?
