I wanted to post an update on the catalogs. I know many Hunger Games fans are chomping at the bit to see which costumes will be available at auction and how they look. I can happily announce that the catalog will look amazing. The costumes, of course, are the stars. Here are a few sneak peeks at what the layout looks like:
For those who have pre-ordered the catalog, you will be glad to know that it is being printed as I type this sentence. We anticipate to receive a shipment in 3-4 weeks and we will begin fulfilling pre-orders by the end of October. Interested bidders will have catalogs in hand well before the November 16 auction date.
One of the main concerns that I’ve heard is that the prices will be astronomical and that “real” fans won’t get a chance to own a piece. This isn’t new. In fact, this was the same concern with the Captain America Auction and Lost Auction that I was a part of. In both those instances, prices started low and there was something for everyone. There were things that went really high, but there were also bargains. As with those two auctions, the Hunger Games Costume Auction will have something for everyone, at all price ranges. There will be plenty of District costumes, training outfits, Arena Games outfits, Capitol City fashion suits and gowns, and hero costumes to choose from. There are lots of Katniss. You won’t be disappointed.
