    I would love to see my own pair of retractable fangs to wear when watching and in a True Blood mood. Also character dolls would be awesome Thank you guys, love the podcast.

    I would love to see some of Sookie’s sun dresses, the actresses accessories, some TB sunglasses, vamp teeth, maybe some temporary tattoos like Godrics and other characters!

    It would be awesome if there would be some Pam outfits in the shop (you know jackets, sexy tops, skirts, dresses), with matching jewelry maybe!!! She is really wearing the most beautiful stuff so it would be absolutely great to be able to look like her. It would also be an idea to have some sexy True Blood lingerie….Bright red with black lace tongs maybe or corsets with pretty designs

    I would love to see more Eric related objects in the HBO store. Or Pam related items. Both of them are phenomenal characters. Especially after Season 4.

    I would like to see some nice, framed posters/pictures from rememberable moments of the show. Even some that are signed by the cast would be nice!

    ALSO, I’d really really like to see TB skins/phone cases for a bigger variety of cell phones BESIDES iPhones!!! I like to show my True Blood pride!

    More T-Shirts with sayings from the show itself.

    And, well, I guess thats about it. Lol. TRUBIE at Heart! S5 Here we come. #waiting sucks

    I would love to see more phone items like Fangtasia/Merlottes phone covers and cases. Even ipod cases. Changable character cases for phones and ipod cases. Everyone wants to walk around with Eric or Alcide on the back of their phones 🙂

    Some new merchandise with the new Authority logo on it. I’d also love to see action figures.

  12. Sarah E.

    May 13, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    I would absolutely love to see Fangtasia and Merlotte’s plug in neon light signs. I think there should be two sizes. One small enough to fit on a desk and another one ‘life size’ that would look good hanging on a wall. I’d buy both in a heartbeat.

  13. Danielle Chiaro

    May 13, 2012 at 8:09 pm

    I would love to see action figures and even home decor to resemble some of the best pieces that each character has In their homes.

  14. ALICIA

    May 13, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    How about large Maps of Bon Temps Highlighting all of the locals that we love.

  15. Shannon

    May 13, 2012 at 10:10 pm

    Oh, I second the idea for Fangtasia and Merlotte’s neon light signs!

  16. Elsa

    Wow, there are a lot of good ideas posted here! Hopefully somebody is reading these that might be able to do something with them! I’m with those who want to see more extended sizes in the clothes, and I love the idea of the map of Bon Temps that marks all the places we’ve heard about, and events and characters spots. I’d like to see more Fangtasia stuff and jewelry.

    I think it would be amazing if there was some of the sundresses that Sookie wears especially the yellow tie dress I am in love with that one! I know that Audrey makes them but it would be awesome if there was recreations of them online!!

  20. Stephanie

    May 14, 2012 at 3:11 pm

    I’d really like to see more Halloween items. My husband and I dress up every year and it would be fun to dress up as something or someone recognizable from the show. Something more than just the cute apron.

  21. Melody Gross

    May 14, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    I would love to see a decent set of fake retractable fangs, shot glasses, clothing from the show, cell phone covers, and decals. LOVE some True Blood!! Counting the days for season 5! Thanks for the giveaway!!

    A few ideas..

    *Some of the clothing that is shown on the show is amazing. All of the characters look so comfortable BUT stylish. Actual clothing designed from the show would be great. (In extended sizes please – XXS, XS, & S is not options)
    *Lingerie line inspired by the characters 😉
    *Car Accessories! Floor mats, steering wheel covers, etc.
    *Nail Polish Line inspired by our characters – If the Kardashians can have an OPI line I think our True Blood characters deserve one =)
    *Actual show memorablia would be nice, there is a good variety in the HBO shop now but I would like to see more available now that we are going into season 5
    *Calendar with the characters special dates added in and with actual pictures from the episodes
    *Definetly more character costumes!
    *Lifesize cardboard standups
    *Make-up Kit – All of the characters have there own style and a make-up kit including a booklet to recreate the styles would be nice.
    *Accessories – The purses that they have available are really nice, but there is not many options. More affordable would be nice also. Bookbags.Blankets (pillowcase,sham,comforter).Workable fangs would be superb!!!

    Thank you for the contest! XOXO Kim

    I would like to see more Fae related items. Although, vampire fangs in their own true blood coffin would be cool too!

    Have been searching for some time now for official Iphone True Blood Cases. Would also like to see more True Blood insppired clothing like the Grane sundress

    I would love to see some bigger sizes for the women’s t-shirts, also, I’d love to see more skins available for laptops and for cell phones other than apple products.

    I think it would be awesome if you could sell more small items, I’ve seen some knockoffs of true blood stuff for the refrigerator and for key chains, this would be awesome.

    Can’t wait for the Season 5 #waiting sucks


    May 15, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    I would love to see sleep shirts with the characters on them. I would just love to sleep with Alcide and or Eric…lol

  29. Lance Johnson

    May 15, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    I would love to see a naked calendar of the characters in it. That would be a great treat for everyone.

  30. Brittany Hipple

    May 15, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    I completely agree on wanting to see Sook’s sundresses. Also some fleece blankets with either wolves, the characters, or the pictures used for the DVD covers for each season.

  31. Jennifer T.

    May 15, 2012 at 11:24 pm

    I would LOVE to see the men of True Blood calendar. A calendar with all the hotties like Eric, Bill, Jason, Alcide, etc. I think millions would buy them! Another fun thing would be some fangs and more Fangtasia memorabilia, especially for those of us who want it for halloween parties! Thanks for all the TB news!

  32. Nan chichi

    May 16, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    Would love to see some phone cases and a wallet a purse with the fangtasia designs please

  33. Danni

    May 16, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    I would love to see some vinyl car/window decals with different True Blood logos or character’s faces. A collection of Pam’s shoes would be great. I’d also love to see them bring back more jewelry like Sookie’s necklace at Moon Goddess or the FotS honesty rings, etc. And I think they should make a Sookie fairy perfume to entice all those sexy supes who just love the scent of fairy blood. 😉

  34. Kristen

    May 16, 2012 at 4:29 pm

    I would love to see more fangtasia bar items. Maybe a martini set, or something like that. Also love the above idea of a Sookie fairy perfume 🙂

  35. Nicole

    May 16, 2012 at 5:33 pm

    I second the ideas on home decor items from the show ( how cool would that be!) and tattoos. Also, would love to see more jewelry (something worn by Eric). Would love an adult version calendar. Autographed items would be great, too. And a fangtasia night light.
    I can’t wait for season 5 to begin!

  36. Toyia noble

    May 16, 2012 at 6:03 pm

    Well I hope I don’t get blocked or reported for this one but how about some adult toys…I would be first in line for a viking vibrator!

  37. Sandi Davis

    May 16, 2012 at 6:34 pm

    I’d buy a watch that had a backing that turned white outside and dark inside, like day and night. That’d be cool.

  38. Melanie

    May 17, 2012 at 8:34 am

    I would LOVE to see some makeup for recreating our favorite looks from the show — how about Pam’s decaying face? Gross… but AWESOME!

  39. Teresa

    May 17, 2012 at 8:35 am

    more barware maybe a blender

  40. Lacey Mayes

    May 17, 2012 at 8:46 am

    I would like to see some cool fangs or retractable fangs! Some of the cast have awesome clothes. It would be cool to see some of the more popular styles from the show. And more TB items for the house would be fun!

  41. Emilee Curry

    May 17, 2012 at 9:21 am

    Life size posters!!

  42. Melissa

    May 17, 2012 at 9:29 am

    Since it’s my birthday, I’d like to see true blood birthday candles/accessories for the perfect birthday cake. Maybe some red wax to show the blood, some white candle fangs, etc. 😉

  43. Jenna Babcock

    May 17, 2012 at 9:55 am

    There are so many great ideas already posted! I like the idea of True Blood inspired nail polish colors, so I’ll go w/that.

  44. Melanie Hernandez

    May 17, 2012 at 10:08 am

    I would love to see more Eric and Pam related merchandise such as clothing, acessories, even shoes. Vampire teeth would be nice also.

  45. AJ

    May 17, 2012 at 11:18 am

    I have so many preferences for what I think they should sell that it hurts!

    I think it would be neat to have cardboard stand-ups of characters.

    Maybe a decaying pam doll that has like a muscle layer and a baby skin layer and just a pam layer haha.

    A glass urn (talbot inspired) that i can serve cherry jello in.

    Gloves that look like Maenad hands for winter.

    Or like true blood hygiene products – ie ( Dr. Ludwig bandaids, Fairy peach face scrub, Red bubble bath, an eric/pam hair highlighting kit 🙂 ..) stuff like that!

  46. Olivia

    May 17, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    A life size Eric doll…or Eric himself!

  47. lindsey benway

    May 17, 2012 at 5:51 pm

    Some Fatboys of the cast and Pams over the top wardrobe.

  48. Trish

    May 17, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    I would love to see the clothes that Pam wears and also some lingerie that fits her style and some home decor like what is in their homes would be awesome. Yard memorabilia would be great too.

  49. jadah

    May 17, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    i think more things like true blood drinks(love those) and different things in merlotts like maybe a sign thats in there or even sale the bar look alikes and anything like that to fans and restaurants. Make more things like snooki shirts and things or sale clothes that where like hers and erics or bills etc. This would be awsome because i would buy a sign from merlotts
