Getting my dork on in honor of MOCKINGJAY

Prof Pic
PIctures from last night's MOCKINGJAY party at Powell's (note: it's not so much of a party as a line). But hanging out with Suzanne Young and Sara of Novel Novice made it fun like a party.

As I contemplated going last night, I realized we had a bow and some arrows, complete with a quiver. How could I not dress up and channel my inner Katniss? Oh yes I did! Suzanne Collins would be proud of me, don't you think?




Here's the three of us. Every time we tried to curl in close for a picture, my hat poked them.




Some of the line outside of Powell's. It wrapped all the way around the building. Lots of people!




Here's Suz and Sara refreshing their memories, getting ready to read the new one!




Once inside, the books were in a BIG cornucopia.



People from the Capitol were there to assist in the book distribution.




I never stay up late, so it feels like quite an accomplishment, having stayed up until one a.m. But what better reason than for a book, huh?

Happy reading everyone!

Thanks - it was fun. Except now, at 11:00 am, I need a nap.

Oh, that is so awesome. You look adorable, like a cross between Indiana Jones and Katniss. Thank you for sharing the pics! Enjoy Mockingjay!

Thanks! Yes, the only hat we could find was a bit like Indiana Jones. I went with it. :)

Love the costume! Hope you're enjoying the book. I can't wait to get home from work & start reading mine, which my husband picked up for me today. I want to be Effie Trinket for Halloween!

You are so much fun, dressing up and everything, Lisa! Yet another reason I wished I lived in Oregon...
