hunger games, the costumes (and giveaway)

I am sorry to bombard you non-Hunger Games fans with all of my Hunger Games obsessed posts.

And by that I mean I’m sorry for you if you haven’t yet joined the Hunger Games bandwagon.

Read it.

You’ll like it.

I promise.

So this is my third post (read the party plan here and menu here) on my awesome sauce Hunger Games party with friend and fellow blogger, Brittany.

I think my favorite part of the party was dressing up as Effie, because let’s face it grown-ups just don’t get the opportunity dress up often enough.

And under threat of death other people dressed up too! I promised the best costume a prize but since I couldn’t very well play Effie and Gamemaker simultaneously I need you my fabulous blog readers to vote your little hearts out and help me pick a winner.

The winner for best costume will receive a gift certificate to Barnes and Noble. And for helping with this difficult task one of you will receive a $50 gift certificate to Amazon to continue your reading endeavors.

To win please vote for your favorite costume in a comment below (or using the survey). For additional entries subscribe to my RSS, follow me on Facebook, follow me on Twitter, tweet this giveaway (leave a comment for each). The giveaway will remain open until Wednesday 3/28/12 11:59PM PST

We have in no particular order: Katniss the girl on fire, citizen of district 2, Glimmer, citizen of district 4, Octavia, citizen of district 12, Katniss on reaping day (please note the forlorn expression), and citizen of the capitol.

    Since my head was the victim of gun pointing and since I put my family in danger to BURN parts of my costume and since you failed (to seek me out of hiding) to take a pic I just win. K? Good.

  37. While I am totally digging your Effie-ness, I have to go with Octavia. LOVE the pink wig.

    And now I really think I should read the books.

    And crawl out from under the rock I’ve been living under. As usual.

  41. The look on Reaping Day Katniss’ face is killing me. So serious. Love her and had to vote for the braid. It’s how my daughter has been doing her hair ever since she saw the first trailer.

    Go Hunger Games! (And you. Love the enthusiasm. Bring it on!)
