Dauntless Dystopian Post-Apocalyptic Party Planning

(front of Divergent Party invite I designed)

There are very few things I love more than a good book. A good, dystopian, post-apocalyptic, YA, angsty romance, coming of age book? GIMME. That book turned into a movie? Holy Bible, I'm excited. 


There are also very few things I love more than planning/hosting a good party. A good party to celebrate the premiere of that movie of that book? You can see how it's practically impossible for me to keep things under control. 

This isn't the first time I've gone crazy over a book turned movie premiere. I sorta like to jump on the crazy train in that department on a regular basis.
(so very DAUNTLESS of me, no?)

There was THIS PARTY.

So yeah...I tend to go off the deep end in the party planning department anyhow. But couple it with a book I've been obsessing over for literally YEARS and things get interesting.

I first read Divergent by Veronica Roth almost 3 years ago and I was instantly smitten. The movie premieres in March, which also happens to be my birthday month...so naturally, the party planning has begun. I'm thinking there must be cake. Dauntless chocolate cake. And birds. Black ravens all over the house. There must be tattoos. Perhaps a photo booth with knives and guns and black leather jackets. I'm thinking there should be syringes full of liquor so everyone can take a "shot" and enter their fear landscape. We probably will only eat with butter knives. And no one named Eric or Peter will be invited. I spent a whole year planning a party that had a ferris wheel...so if I could get the El train to whistle through my house, you know I would. 

And because I'm a tshirt addict...this is what I spent last night designing.

(3/14 update: TSHIRT CAME!! It's a good day)

Ahhhh...so fun. And the movie is still 6 weeks away!
This crazy train has only just left the station.

If you want to make tshirts of your own, my design is available for purchase in MY SHOP along with other Divergent Party Printables.
