Tomorrow is the premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. Like with past Hunger Games movies, I was eagerly anticipating what new merchandise would be in store for fans of Panem.

However, that doesn’t mean you can’t show off your support of the rebellion with the merchandise below.

One benefit to living in Southern California is our proximity to Disney. Which means, whenever we’re in the area, we love checking out Downtown Disney to see what new items they have in the stores.
I’ve had a pretty busy few weeks, and one of the reasons was I flew out to Atlanta to attend Dragon*Con. While I consider this to be one of the best cons for cosplay, it definitely doesn’t disappoint when it comes to geeky fashion and merchandise. Here is just a sampling of what was spotted at the con.
As we’ve discussed before, adding a little something to your nails is a great way to show off your geeky pride.

What’s great about these is they’re pretty quick to apply and an easy way to dress up your outfit. Check out our finds below!
