Mockingjay PinsI am a sucker for a good deal and when it happens to be on Hunger Games merchandise, that makes me even more excited!

Searching around on eBay today I found a bunch of different Mockingjay pins and necklaces for really great prices. Some of them are official and some seem to be fan-made.

You can see the difference in the early Mockingjay pins (where it is facing down) and the later ones, where it has its wings spread and is flying up. The early ones are supposed to represent the one that Katniss actually wore during The Hunger Games and is great for any Hunger Games fan or someone putting together a Katniss costume.

The later ones are harder to come by because they will coincide with the Mockingjay movie release in November. The official ones that are for sale were from 2014 San Diego Comic Con (SDCC). There are not a lot of them, so they cost more. But it is likely the exact same ones will go on sale at places like Hot Topic and Amazon some time this month.

The cheapest one that I found was for $1.62 and included free shipping!

The best I could find on the SDCC one was $4.00 plus $2.25 shipping—still not bad!

All of them are “Buy It Now” which means that you do not have to bid on them. You can just buy them outright.

Happy Hunger Games shopping!

Lorde Mockingjay Soundtrack

“Yellow Flicker Beat,” the first song for the new Mockingjay soundtrack has finally been released! Listen to it below and then comment telling us what you think!

Lorde has been teasing us via her Instagram account for weeks! She started on September 4 and gave us the first 3 lines via images that represented the words.

I’m a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm
And the scars that mark my body, they’re silver and gold.
My blood is a flood of rubies, precious stones.

lorde-1
lorde-2
lorde-3

We can’t wait to hear the rest of the songs!

Just in case you don’t already have your own copy, it’s good to know that you will be able to watch The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on Netflix as of October 22.

 

Fun dystopian move comparison video. Compares The Maze Runner, Divergent or Hunger Games: Catching Fire. We’ve seen all 3 and can say that this is pretty much spot on!

 

Cute picture that we found from The Hunger Memes. Oreos made to look like The Mockingjay! The question is…would you eat it or just look at it?

 

In addition to the exclusive Instagram revelation of content, looks like The Hunger Games Explorer will also be updating in the next few days with promotion for Mockingjay: Part 1. Plus actor bios for Liam Hemsworth and Natalie Dormer.

 

Here’s the American Library Association list of 2013′s most challenged books. Of course we know The Hunger Games was on it!

 

Lorde has been teasing us with the first lyrics from the new Mockingjay soundtrack. ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’ will be released September 29.

Katniss Wig for $10.70

September 7, 2014

Katniss WigWe are surprised that we have not seen official Hunger Games costumes, and it is forcing everyone to continue to get creative in creating their own costumes.

We found this wig on Amazon called “Rubie’s Costume Adult Contestant Wig.” Obviously they couldn’t come right out and say “Katniss wig,” but it is pretty obvious my calling it a “Contestant Wig.”

Also, in the description it says “Perfect to wear when you’re competing on reality television or just practicing your archery.” Hmmm…do does that sound like?

What do you think? Would this be a a good wig to wear for a Katniss costume? It is reasonably priced at only $10.70 plus free Prime Shipping.
