True Blood Giveaway: Viking Dog Tags

This contest is now closed. Congratulations to the winner – Patrice!

Erik Nordman dog tags - inspired by True BloodWe have a really cool giveaway for you this week, Truebies. Janet Cadsawan, a jewelry designer who created the bronze engraved buckle and Thor’s Hammer pendant, along with other items, for the Viking flashback scene in “Never Let Me Go”, donated a set of “Erik Nordman dog tags” for us to give away. Inspired by our favorite Viking vampire, Janet writes:

The truth of the matter is that when vampires die the second time, all that is left is a pile of ashes – hence the necessity for dog tags. We hope that Erik Nordman’s are never recovered but we know he wears an ancient Viking double dragon talisman to protect during battle and that his Vampire ID shows his rank as Sheriff of Area 5.

PS a varnish is added to protect the oxidation and blood stains from fading. The varnish will fade over time from use and if worn in water. Apply acoat of beeswax or furniture wax to maintain color if this happens.

Want to win a pair for your very own? Here’s how to enter:

  • In the comments below, tell us which flashback you’d like to see on True Blood (character, era, event).
  • Be sure to use a valid email address when you leave your comment.
  • Comments must be posted by 11:59PM PT on Thursday, August 13, 2009.
  • One (1) winner will be drawn from eligible entries and notified via email.

Good luck!

NOTE: A few people have commented on Eric’s name being “misspelled” on the dog tags. For copyright reasons, Janet is using the Nordic spelling of his name, which is probably how it was spelled for a significant portion of his life (and unlife).

  1. I would like to see a flashback of Sookie’s parents and her grandmother at a young age. Maybe give us a quick glimse at her grandfather :) It may even be a new way Sookie uses her powers. She could see this after touching something that belonged to her grandmother? Maybe the item is broken by Tara’s friends so it is very upsetting? Just a thought…love the books and the show!

  2. I would like to see flashbacks from when Vampires first started coming out after Tru Blood was invented. How did that go down? How was the idea of vampires being real taken by the public. This would be very interesting.

  3. I’d love to see more about Eric. More about his past, how he turned Pam (and their relationship) and how he came to Louisiana.

  4. I would love to see Eric turn Pam…I love the flashback in the books and would love to see it on screen!!!

  5. I would like to see a flashback of Mary Ann in ancient Greece, a flashback of Sookie’s parent’s deaths, and flashback of Eric and Pam or Bill in the 1950′s since it was known for the most part as a conservative, uptight era!

  6. I would love to see a flashback of Godric turning Eric into a vampire. Eric seems so strong I wonder how he succumbed to Godric.

  7. I would like to see a flashback of when Mary Ann first met Eggs, a flashback to when Sookie first met Tara or some events that went on in there lives to show how close they are, or definitely some more Eric.

  8. Personally, I would be very interested in seeing more of the relationship that Eric and Godric had in the past. With the love and respect they seem to have for each other, I would be very intrigued to see how that came about.

    Or even how Godric came to be, or soon before he had changed Eric. A combination of all of those would be superb!

  9. For me I’m new to True Blood this season (2) so I would love to see any type of flash back from season one that could help explain some of the story lines for me.

    It would be very interesting to see a flashback featuring scenes of Eric and Godric in the past hunting humans when Eric is first turned vampire, such as the older scenes of Bill & Lorena.
    Keep up the brilliant work and the creative writing, talented actors, hard work and superior cinemaography is truly appreciated!

  11. I would like to see a flashback to when Eric separated from Godric. They mustve separated at some point since Godric is now in Dallas, and Eric is in Bon Temps. I would also like to see when Eric turned Pam, i would like to see if she was opposed to being turned, seeing as how now she is loving being a vampire

I would also like to see more of the vampires past like isabel, pam, eric, stan, and godric. I would also like to know why glamouring dosent work on ppl with special powers and also why maryanne can’t control ppl with special powers. I also want to know were everyones powers come from like sam and sookie and other ppl are they born with them or do they get them as they get older. Last I would like to know were vampires come from.
