it's time to fangirl.

I am so excited.

I'm trying really hard not to think about it or talk about it too much because if I do, I get too excited and it feels like the next thirteen hours and forty-eight minutes will last forever. Thank goodness I have work for most of the morning and a date after work.

This might go on record as the longest day this year.

I'm planning to buy some gold eyeliner, Cinna-style, and pass it around to all my friends when we're waiting at the theater this evening. Libby has a pretty fantastic t-shirt tutorial. (for me, it would read Finnick & Finnick & Finnick & Finnick. I just love him so much.)

Are you dressing up at all for the movie tonight? Will you be there for the midnight showing tonight? Are you as excited as I am?


  1. you just described my feelings exactly. i'm going to make a shirt that says "real or not real" on the front and then it'll say "real" on back. i'm so excited. oh my gosh. i'm so excited.
    -jocee <3

  2. oh my gosh, I'm freaking out. so crazy excited. like, I have NO idea how I'm going to do school or work today, or even work out. I'll just pretend I'm being chased by tracker-jackers or something. oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh. thirteen hours!

    breathe, breathe, breathe.

    braiding my hair katniss style and HOPING to buy some gold eyeliner. any idea where I can get it?

    also, jocee, your t-shirt is the best. for real.


  3. Definitely going to the midnight showing :D My hair is a little short to braid, but I'm probably going to try anyway XD Gold eyeliner is a must.


  4. LOL you're possibly the most adorable fangirl I've ever met. ;) I'm going to tomorrow with Ben, I think. My grandma said she'd take me while all the other kids weer in school. lol...
    Don't ruin it for me tonight though! I swear I'll stay away from every phone and computer known to man until I've seen it.
    Haha, have a great time. :)


  5. Oh my gosh yes! I am so excited! I'm going to be decked out in a HG shirt, Mockingjay pin, a braid, and HG nail polish! I didn't think of the gold eye liner though, that's a good idea! But I seriously don't think I can wait I'm so excited. And obsessed. :)

  6. I want to see it tonight SO bad, but I can't go tonight. Ahhhhhh D:

  7. Going tonight of course, there really is no other option:) Decking out in homemade t-shirts. A large group of us are wearing them. They have a district number on the front and "let the games begin" on the back, sort of like we were all heading into the arena ourselves. I cannot express how excited I am. I wanted to sleep in but I woke up at 7:30 this morning and I couldn't go back to sleep:) Cannot wait!


  8. Katie--it's three hours until I walk into the cinema. Already I'm in my Hunger Games top, I'll be figuring out a Katniss braid soon, and I'm filled with the irony of this whole thing.
    Also, on Radio 4 (the super-posh facty cultural radio station) they talked about the Hunger Games. So yeah, yay!

  9. Well, I'm not going all out fangirl, though I do love the series. :) {I did the midnight showing, fangirl thing for the final HP film.}

    I was hoping to get to see the film on Saturday, but it looks like it'll be a bit longer. Oh well-might give me a chance to reread the first book before then!


  10. Me and my friend are going to the midnight showing tonight! :D
    Homemade t-shirts and lots of energy! Gah!

  11. oh, sigh. it's all so exciting. i love a good midnight showing. PB talked me into braiding my hair, i didn't want to because i knew every other girl would but it's going to be humid here (and possibly rainy) so it'll be best to have it up. i'll be making gold eyeliner, it will rock. happy hunger games! i'll blog about our adventure tomorrow...

  12. oh my goodness! it's nice to see that i'm not the only fanatic!
    i went to the movie last night,i got into an early viewing!!
    it's so amazing. i am going again to tonight.
    i'm not sure what i'll wear tonight but last night was a red carpet event so i wore a cocktail dress!

  13. oh... so am i missing out on anything?

  14. I'm going tomorrow!! So sad that I can't go to the premier.....but I'm happy to be able to go :D

    I love love love finnick too!

    ...my absolute favorite ever.

  15. I am SOOO excited! I can't go to the midnight showing because it's a school night :/, but I'm going to go that night... time is going really slowly for me too! Waiting, waiting, waiting until I get to see it :):):) soooo excited!

  16. Love your blog. Your photographs are beautiful:)

  17. I love Finnick too. I hope you liked the film! Wasn't Effie awesome? I'd have to say aside form Katniss my fav characters are Finnick and Effie.


go ahead. make my day.
