Effie Trinket Barbie!!!

aye aye
No, seriously, it's real! That being so, you have to ask yourself, is it wrong and a betrayal of the deep message of the Hunger Game books to run screaming to a toy store to get one, or not?

It's ironic, right?

I have a Katniss Barbie though.. So I'd probably go out and get one with my grubby little mitts.

If it makes you feel any better, I've been lusting after Cinna's gold eyeliner since the first movie stills came out.

I found her in Target (if you want to get her, ask for the holiday toy catalog and you can get $5 off) and as a doll collector, I love her. She's on an incredibly cheap body so I put her on an articulated one and now just need to figure out how to pose her to make her look like she's saying "That is MAHOGANY!" somewhere.

The Katniss doll is also beautiful, this year they sculpted her after Jennifer Lawrence instead of using an older mold they had on hand.

It's just one of many reminders that the vast majority of us are not from the districts, we're from the capital. I do think it's interesting that the people who do this merchandising don't see the irony there.

Isn't it just typical that the movie makers have to make all this other stuff just to make more and more money.

It is kind of ironic. I'm not buying it. I wouldn't buy it even if I had more money.

I did buy Hunger Games nail polish last year though, so I do not get to judge people who do buy this doll or any others. I actually had to order the polishes online because they were sold out in brick and morter stores.

My life may not more closely resemble that of a citizen of the districts to a degree, but there are parts of the Capitol lifestyle that make me happier.

You can have a deep and meaningful thing and still enjoy having fun toys of it! I vote there ain't no shame in fun.

That's awesome! And I celebrate it even more, knowing that her look was designed by Ve Neill!
