On The Hunger Games Merchandise ( + GIVEAWAY!)

(Picture from hungergamesdwtc.net)

There’s only less than 50 days before the The Hunger Games will be showing in the cinemas around the world and I know all the tributes (me included!) are heck excited to see Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson to be in the arena!

When I read the book for the first time last 2009, I really liked the book and I’ve been looking for THG merchandise but that doesn’t exist in our country. I’ve been trying out contests and giveaways for years to have one mockingjay pin but I’m sort-of unlucky when it comes to random raffles/giveaways (like, from TheHob.org, The Hunger Games Philippines). IF I COULD JUST BUY THEM, I WILL DEFINITELY BUY THEM. I know there are online stores like Etsy but It’s hard and hassle for us here to order there because shipping/delivery of goods may get lost in transit, etc.

Anyway, just this month, I was referred by my fellow The Hunger Games fan that there’s an online store that customizes necklaces and CAN YOU BELIEVE IT, THEY HAVE THE MOCKINGJAY DESIGN! I mean, it’s not the pin like in the book, but still, it’s the mockingjay logo! I want to get it in my hands and ordered right away!

I got these precious Mockingjay necklaces from Personalized Accesories on Facebook and I really liked the necklaces. The pendant is made of acrylic material which is very light and not easily bent or damaged. What good about this store is that they have their own acrylic machine for easy customization of their products! Aside from the Mockingjay design, they have others like Harry Potter and Pacman, or if you want, you can send them a picture of the design you want and they will make them for you as long as the design doesn’t look like it’s easy-to-break. Actually, I already have a couple of designs in mind when I order again like:

The Doctor Who TARDIS

Fairy Tail Logo

DFTBA/Nerdfighteria logo

Okay, enough talking! Here’s the best and most exciting part of this post, We’re giving away FIVE MOCKINGJAY NECKLACES to five lucky readers of In Lesbians with Books! Don’t worry, the mechanics are easy! You don’t have to kill each other in the arena to win these precious Mockingjay necklaces.

    a. If you are one of the tributes for the Hunger Games, what will be your weapon choice in the arena?

    I want to use my charms to fight the other Tributes. LOL Just Kidding! I’ll probably need a gun or a chainsaw so I can easily kill them and win the The Hunger Games!

    b. If you are to customize a necklace, what design (book-related or not) do you like to do?
    Probably a Down With the Capitol sign! or Capitol logo!

    Twitter: https://twitter.com/#!/hoorayjoy/status/168912107675463681

  4. a. Throwing knives
    b. “Real or not real” on a cutely designed bread miniature

  5. Tricia! Not a necklace person, but I know someone I can give it to. You will rig the randomizer to pick me, right? Right. :P
    a. Broadsword. I don’t know how to swing it but it can be learned. A cursing staff will also do, but dang, Panem isn’t an epic fantasy land.
    b. Battlestar Galactica emblem. Kind of like this, just replace the W. Adama nametag(cause Apollo’s kind of lame) with K. Agathon(cause Helo’s really cool). My birthday is on October, Tricia. haha

  6. a. If you are one of the tributes for the Hunger Games, what will be your weapon choice in the arena?

    -It’d be the spear. It can be used for long range attacks and close up combats — as long as it has a blade on its tip– good enough to fend myself from anyone. plus i could use it for a makeshift umbrella by piercing a giant leaf on the middle with it– in case it rains in the arena.

    b. If you are to customize a necklace, what design (book-related or not) do you like to do?

    -I’d probably go with Stitch (from Lilo and Stitch) :D Nothing beats a cute and lovable blue alien displayed on an acrylic necklace!

    A. A WHIP. So I can get hold of my targets easily and definitely whip them ’til they surrender. I don’t want a weapon that can kill. I just want something that can make the enemies put their guards down.
    B. I want to win two necklaces because I would like to give the other to a special someone. Nevertheless, I want the original one with embedded words “You’re gonna be fine” to remind the one who will wear it that everything’s fine–ALL IS WELL.

  24. (Sorta kinda late haha)

    If I were a tribute: crossbow. Because I can’t fire a bow and arrow (the LARP at the Mockingjay launch proved that), so I need something automated. :P

    What design: I don’t think this is book related…but I just want a star. Because it’s so hard to find star accessories here. :/

    Tweeted, and liked the Facebook page :)

  25. A. Taser (that can kill and not just stun). Hopefully I’ll have more than one so battery life won’t be an issue. :)
    B. The design from the Claddagh ring that Angel gave to Buffy.

    Twitter.com/minavesguerra

  26. A. A LIGHT SABER – I don’t care if it is not in the Cornucopia but I know it could kill!
    B. The design would be the symbols of the factions (Dauntless, Abnegation, Candor, Amity and Erudite) from Divergent by Veronica Roth.

  27. a. If you are one of the tributes for the Hunger Games, what will be your weapon choice in the arena?

    Bow and Arrow. You don’t have to get close to your opponents to attack them, with a bow and an arrow you can attack anyone from afar. And they’re not heavy so there’s less hassle. I can move swiftly and run around quickly.

    b. If you are to customize a necklace, what design (book-related or not) do you like to do?

    I would like Hermione Granger’s time-turner. :)

  28. If you are one of the tributes for the Hunger Games, what will be your weapon choice in the arena?

    Easy; GRENADES.

    If you are to customize a necklace, what design (book-related or not) do you like to do?

    The symbol of DEATHLY HALLOWS.

  29. a. a pack of daggers. It`s handy useful. Great for basic survival stuffs and easy to maim on.
    b. I want the logo of the Gallagher Academy.

    -a camera which shots the enemy from afar. like the camera that was used in the movie johnny english reborn

    b. If you are to customize a necklace, what design (book-related or not) do you like to do?
    -virgo lady design

  31. a. If you are one of the tributes for the Hunger Games, what will be your weapon choice in the arena?

    Dagger. I find dagger to be an extremely good weapon when it comes to protecting yourself. Yes, it is not a range weapon, but when you are inside the arena, the fighters should posses these three qualities: 1. technique, 2, style, and 3. stealth. And guess what? A dagger is one, if not the best, of the weapons that can help a good fighter become A GREAT FIGHTER.

    b. If you are to customize a necklace, what design (book-related or not) do you like to do?

    If I were to customize a necklace, I would design the logo of Fairy Tail. I want to embody the principles of a great guild- from friendship to love, from fighting to caring, and from embracing the freedom to protecting everyone you love. I want everyone to know how Natsu, Gray, Lucy, Erza, Happy, Wendy, Carla, Mirajane (especially when she decided to fight Freed to protect her brother), and everyone in Fairy Tail gave all their best just to let everyone feel that no matter what happens, there will always be someone willing to welcome you with open arms and without apprehensions.

  33. A. If you are one of the tributes for the Hunger Games, what will be your weapon choice in the arena?

    I’m glad Katniss picked the right weapon that suits me best. Any guess? Well, the arrow and the bow. Although I’m not good or for short, never tried using bow and arrow, I fall in love to that weapon since high school. The only problem is, my parents don’t like me to use that bloody weapon. Anyway, I’m glad that books can offer things that reality can’t give. My arrow will pierce you to death. Arrrg!

    B. If you are to customize a necklace, what design (book-related or not) do you like to do?

    The Fairy Tail tattoo, I love that anime! Some designs in my head are already found in the site. Browsing more gold totems.

    a. my kage bunshin technique and some shurikens :))
    b. aside from the mockinhjay necklace, i’d like to to do something related to Clockwork Angel :)

    https://twitter.com/#!/callmeteepee/status/170129765628518400 :)

  35. Answers:
    1. Im choosing SPEAR. I love SPEAR since i was a kid. And like a bow and arrow, it is a long range weapon that i can use for far opponents.
    2. Maybe i want EIFFEL TOWER to be my design. I want this because it symbolizes LOVE for me.

    Email : brianne_russel@yahoo.com

  36. Not very original, but I’ll bring in a magic wand with me into the arena. So I could Expecto Patronum and Avada Kedavra everybody else’s asses off and WIN. This wand could get me anything, too, including other opponents’ weapons. ACCIO, GRENADES! ACCIO, AXES, ACCIO SWORDS! Therefore: Die, other districts, die.

    And if I were to customize a necklace, I would pick a sort of mini bookshelf. That way, it will fall right on the spot on my chest where my heart supposedly is.

    [Something alarming: My SNS accounts are private! Could I post about this on my other accounts instead? Like here? https://www.facebook.com/bookbed/posts/336834696359109

    Thanks for having this giveaway!

  37. a. If you are one of the tributes for the Hunger Games, what will be your weapon choice in the arena?

    My weapon of choice will be the bow and arrow because it has been my favorite weapon ever since. It can shoot targets at a long range while keeping yourself protected from the enemies and it is a weapon that requires an eye for small details.

    b. If you are to customize a necklace, what design (book-related or not) do you like to do?
    I would like the logo of Slytherin as the design of my necklace because it is my favorite house in the Harry Potter series.

    Bow and arrow. aside from the distance, you can use the arrow head as a short-stab when they get too close like what legolas does in LOTR. You can also use the bow as another weapon just in case plus, it just makes you look cooler! ^_^
