In Honor of The Hunger Games' DVD Release, Target Is Selling a $999 Mockingjay Pin

On August 18, prepare for Hunger Games fever to set in once again—that's when the action flick will (finally) become available on DVD and Blu-ray. But for this particular event, Target's not content to simply offer fans copies of the film itself. To coincide with what's arguably going to be the biggest DVD release of the year, the superstore is rolling out three limited-edition collectibles priced far higher than its usual merchandise.

If you were one of the many Katniss-lovers who scrambled to pick up the protagonist's lace-up Frye boots, you'll be happy to know you can finally snag Target's matching leather jacket for $349. The retailer's also offering lithographs signed by 10 Hunger Games cast members, including Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, for $699. And if that $10 Mockingjay pin you picked up last March is starting to look a little rusty—Target will be selling a 14-karat gold replica of Katniss Everdeen's symbolic brooch for $999.

The jacket hits Target.com on August 18, the lithograph on August 19 and the Mockingjay pin on August 20. But here's the catch: only 100 of each item will be available, meaning you might have to battle your way to becoming one of the lucky victors—er, buyers.

Don't want to pony up hundreds of dollars to support your Hunger Games addiction? Target's also got less-costly fan merch in stock already, like this $19.99 cardboard cutout of Peeta and, um, this $15.99 District 12 lightbulb.

The retailer's also offering a special three-disc deluxe edition of the film in both DVD ($20.99) and Blu-ray ($25.99) formats, both packed with 45 minutes' worth of cast interviews, "Tribute video diaries," and making-of featurettes. Those are now available for preorder right here, and there are plenty of 'em to go around—regardless of whether the odds are in your favor.

    What to wear on every kind of date

    It’s the best and worst time to be a single girl in the dating world. On the one hand, past generations of women didn’t have the freedom, financial independence, access to birth control (depending on your state and employer, of course), or plethora of options to meet new people—online and off—that we enjoy today. On the other hand, they also didn’t have to worry about sexting, selecting the best selfie for their profile picture, or accidentally swiping right on a coworker.

    Your guide to hair accessories

    If you’re anything like me, you probably haven’t gone anywhere near a hair accessory for years—save for the few stretched-out Goody elastics tumbling around at the bottom of your handbag, the slightly rusty bobby pins gathering dust at the back of your medicine cabinet or that scrunchie you use to pull your hair back when washing your face in the morning. For as long as I can remember, hair adornments have been slapped with somewhat of a childish reputation; when’s the last time you saw a girl over the age of 11 wearing a barrette or witnessed a woman past her teen years sporting a headband?
