The Hunger Games Don’ts of Etsy, Part 2

People think fans of The Hunger Games will buy ANYTHING. No, seriously! It’s not just the book publishers or film studios trying to do it these days! If you thought some of the products they’ve put out for production were a little over the mark, just spend a little time on Etsy and you’ll be running back to the comfort of NECA’s lanyards and pencil sharpeners.

We highlighted some of the outrageous things Etsy sellers have the cojones to sell to Hunger Games fans in an earlier post, but there’s just so much more out there that we had to write up Part 2!

The Hunger Games Movie Scene Print Art, Drawn Left Handed

Once upon a time, some dude took 5 minutes to draw and color the chariot scene with his non-dominant hand and the result was… somewhere between Beavis & Butthead and The Muppets. Put that on high quality paper and it’s totally worth $15, right? …Or just have some 8-year-old recreate the scene for you sometime.

BOOBS Real or Not Real Embroidery

The *cough* artist behind these babies claims it’s a Hunger Games item because it uses the book quote in a way that mocks the series by using the “real” meaning of the question “Real or Not Real?” Also, NOT REAL given how hideously uneven they are, even from a side view!

Sexy Hot Team Peeta Flame Sparkle Totebag

Step 1: Take a promotional still, photoshop on fake cuts and make Josh Hutcherson’s eyes look demonic. Add text that is EXTRA PIXELY.
Step 2: Print image, iron on to bag.
Step 3: Add rhinestones and MOAR FLAME, this time in a bow.
Step 4: List product under every word that might excite an 8-year-old girl!

Hunger Games Crazy Lady Novelty Pin

You mean you’ve NEVER wanted to show your fandom love with a pin in which some deranged looking character with coils for hair and beads for limbs is wearing a cut up Hunger Games poster as a dress?! That’s got a lot of charm and sentimental value, right there!

Katniss and Peeta Couple Earrings

For those of us who have decided it’s not enough to dangle Katniss and Peeta on either side of their face! We must frame them against bright red bows, like a tacky old Christmas portrait! That will show the world how much we love the series!

Jennifer Lawrence Devotional Candle

MOTHER OF GOD! Most of us like Jennifer Lawrence, but not this much! You can now praise her (or one of many other celebs photoshopped into a biblical scene) with this image on an 8-inch candle. We’re not sure if we should laugh or cry.

We’re Laughing and Probably Going To Hell,
The Girl With The Pearl

Many thanks to Savanna from Hunger Games Fireside Chat for finding a couple of these, including that last kicker!

  1. Oh my goodness I cannot stop laughing. The top one is killing me. Who draws like that and thinks it’s an okay idea to SELL the artwork? The Real or Not Real one is also hysterical. Oh and of course the Jennifer Lawrence candle.

    The scary thing is, I’m sure SOMEONE in the world is going to look at that Team Peeta bag and think it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. *shudder*

  2. Thank God I just woke up because these items are the stuff of nightmares. *shudder* Wish there was THG police to arrest the bozo who desecrated one of the best book quotes with boobs.

  3. The boob embroidery is at least creative. 😀 But listing it as a THG item… Nope. I’m laughing and crying simultaneously. But more of the latter when I think about how some people will actually spend real money to any of these things.

  4. This is the funniest! I laughed so hard that my ribs hurt! I think you’ll go to Heaven for the send-off on JL as the Mother of God.

  5. Hilarious. The one with Jennifer Lawrence as the Mother of God is just insulting, I believe. The first picture (if you could call it that) looks more Bevis and Butthead than Muppets, the handbag one looks tacky, as well as the others. No wonder Hollywood thinks fans are made up of those who’ll buy anything. It’s the ones that do buy everything and anything that makes the others look like loons.
