"The Hunger Games" - Beauty, Fashion, Foods and Crafts Roundup

I am looking forward to seeing the movie "The Hunger Games", which is a young adult novel by Suzanne Collins that has been adapted into a movie. I have not read the book but heard it is sort of like "Running Man" but with a teenage current social issues twist and is rumored to be the blockbuster of the year.

I did spot over at Dealicious Finds where if you are an Amazon Prime member you can access the book for free through their lending library or purchase for a Kindle for $5.   For more information, click here.

In honor of that, I am posting a roundup of beauty ideas and crafts that tie in with the movie.  Click on the hyperlinks below the pictures for the links.

DIY your own District 9 T-shirt with a plain T-shirt, X-Acto Knife, Freezer paper, and iron and mix of bleach and water. (The project calls for using iron cut outs on the "District 9", but I think it would be cooler using the bleach freezer paper stencil that was used on the insignia as that as well.)
