You knew it was coming: In a year when “The Hunger Games” took Hollywood by storm, holiday gifts for the dystopian literature-lover are the big thing this Christmas, especially for girls who want to be just like Katniss Everdeen when they grow up (albeit minus the starvation, burn scars and mass violent death).
From Capitol couture stocking stuffers and must-have fashions for the arena, to equipment that’ll help hone the would-be tribute’s survival skills, to the latest entries into the “Hunger Games” oeuvre by other talented authors, this group of gifts will be right up the alley of any girl who’s had her imagination captured by Suzanne Collins’ trilogy about a world gone mad.

It’s not much, but we’ve finally gotten a little tiny glimpse of the arena from the upcoming “Catching Fire“—and of Katniss and Peeta taking a dip in the dangerous waters of their island paradise. The follow-up film to “The Hunger Games” has been shooting in Hawaii, and a couple pics have finally leaked of Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson in the Quarter Quell arena—an island environment that includes a whole mess of aquatic hazards—getting ready to rumble in their Capitol-issue bathing suits.
Okay, so we’re using the term “bathing suits” kind of loosely; these little numbers are definitely more function than fashion…although there is something a little bit sexy about them too, right? And while we can’t see much more of the landscape than a pair of platforms surrounded by water, it’s pretty exciting to get a sneak peek at the action in store with that shot of Jennifer in mid-dive. Girl’s got GAME FACE.
