Closed Giveaway: Official Vampire Academy shirts & more


Red Vampire Academy bookmarkBlack Vampire Academy bookmarkVampire Academy fans can finally purchase official merchandise — shirts, bookmarks, keychains — from the series. While there are some great fan-made shirts out there, if you look hard enough, it’s much better to have the real-deal. These ones have been signed off on by Richelle Mead. She loves them. We love them. Now, you get to love them. (Jump to the giveaway.)

The company creating and producing the new line of VA goodies, Arcane Vault, actually designed the molnija mark for Richelle.

If your memory is failing you, there are three different tattoos the dhampirs who become Guardians receive: first is the promise mark indicating they agree protect the Moroi, next comes the molnija which signifies each evil Strigoi they’ve slain and finally the third one, which Rose made necessary, is the Zvezda mark, which says you killed so many Strigoi in that battle we lost count. Now you can see what each mark looks like, and wear it with pride. (The items with the Zvezda mark are open for pre-order right now. We like this one.)

In addition to items featuring the Guardian tattoos, Arcane Vault has created a few shirts with the “Property of St. Vladimir’s Academy Athletic Department” emblazoned on the front. We wear this one with pride, and pretend we’re spending all those hours practicing with Dimitri. (We usually wear a small, but went with a medium and it fits great. Hits just below the hip. Also, way cute.)

A couple notes, if you’re going to order some of the Vampire Academy shirts. Check the sizing charts for each different shirt style. They do vary. We found the babydoll shirts fit nicer a size up, additionally, those babydolls are very lightweight. (We wear a black bra with the black molnija shirt just to be safe.) All the other shirts, this is not an issue.

Arcane Vault is working on new items, and has invited Vampire Academy fans to fill out a survey telling them what items and designs you want. We’re not big on logos, so we’re happy they haven’t gone that direction so far, but maybe you really want a nice VA shirt. You can let them know here.


And now for the fun part. Knowing how big of Richelle Mead and Vampire Academy fans the Vampire Book Club readers are, Arcane Vault was kind enough to provide shirts, bookmarks and keychains for a giveaway. We’re going to have four winners, and here’s the breakdown.

These are the four shirts up for grabs:

  1. Black molnija babydoll T-shirt (Size large, but does run smaller. Full details.)
  2. Dark Blue ‘Property of St. Vladimir Academy’s Athletic Department’ T-shirt (Ladies large, fits true to size. Full details.)
  3. Berry promise mark T-shirt (Ladies large, fits true to size. Full details.)
  4. Gray molnija mark unisex T-shirt (Unisex large, fits like a men’s large. Full details.)

    I have to say I’m a Dmitri fan. The end of book three and all of books 4 and 5 have killed me and I’m hoping Richelle will bring it full circle in book 6:) I like Adrian, but it’s been Dmitri from the beginning for me!

  2. Louise says:

    Thanks for this awesome giveaway! Rose is my fave character. I love the struggle she has between what she wants and what she’s been trained is her obligation. It makes her very interesting. 🙂

  3. Sheila Koch says:

    Dmitri is definitely my favorite. I love the bad boy vibe you get and can’t wait for more

  4. Alyssa Speaker says:

    I can’t say I have one favorite I have a few. Rose, Dimitri, and Adrian. I connect more with Rose, because I feel like I am Rose when I read the books. I just get so absorbed into it I just can’t help but feel that way. I like Dimitri cause he reminds me of my husband. Adrian, because he would do anything for Rose and that also reminds me of my husband ♥

  5. Melissa says:

    My favorite character is Dimitri. He fights for the ones he loves and cares about people. He’s kind, brave, strong, fierce, passionate, caring. He is such a good man, with a good and compassionate heart. And aside from how hot he really is those are the things that made Dimitri a very much appealing character, plus I can relate to him in the whole forgiveness of the soul art.

  6. Cem says:

    Two favourites, Rose and Dimitri. I just love Dimitri, the way he is, the strength of his character and I can’t get enough of him (and him and Rose together). Rose, I love because she’s strong, but far from perfect, she’s grown up so much though the series and learnt a lot about herself along the way. I get so involved with her when reading any of the books that it feels like I’m right there with her. I don’t always agree with her actions and get pretty mad at her at times, but that kind of makes me love her, and the series, more because I can feel that way.

    Oh and thanks for the great contest!

  7. areli says:

    My favorite character is christian . i am sacrcastic like he is, hte way he is with rose reminds me of my reltionship with my cousin.

  8. My fvaorite character, hands down, is Adrian!! I love how funny and sarcastic he is! And Also I tend to like to root for the underdog. XD

  9. Jon-Anne Fisher says:

    Thanks for an awesome contest! I would say Rose is my favorite character. She is crazy and impulsive, but also strong and loyal!

  10. Ashley says:

    My favorite character is definitely Rose. I connect with her so much. She’s sarcastic, but can definitely be serious when needed. She’s so funny and badass and she’d do anything for her friends. Rose is an amazing role model for females, she doesn’t rely on her boyfriend to survive. Everything she does is truly for herself and her friends.

  11. Jessica says:

    My favorite characters are Christian and Dimitri. Christian is just so sarcastically awesome, and I love Dimitri’s sense of honor.

  12. Magen says:

    Oh, Christian, definitely. He thinks for himself, he’s okay with being on his own, he thinks that their government and society is messed up for what happened to his parents, he’s into controversies, he’s the most sarcastic person I’ve met (literary and literally) and yet he has a sensitive side. He’s like my best friend. 😀

  13. Melissa Beruete says:

    This is a hard desicion but I have to say that Rose and Dimitri are my favorite characters. I love dimitri but I hated him for what he did to Rose. Dimitri is strong, he listens and understands he’s a badass he has passion for life and everything he does he has a sense of loyalty and honor he has control, and dedication to his role as a guardian. Not to mention his glorious body but the one thing I really hate is the fact that he is secrative when it comes to the one he loves. I think we share the same qualities espeacially when it comes to love. I also love Rose because she is like dimitri and like us she is far from being perfect she is learning from her mistakes and is growing up along the way. And that is why they are my favorite characters.

    -p.s Thank you for the chance to be entered in this amazing contest you guys rock:) and good luck to everyone.

  14. Aileen says:

    I love this series.
    If I were to choose someone for Rose i would definetly pick Dimitri. I’m hoping that Richelle Mead will let her be with him in the end. Adrian is also my other option for Rose if Dimitri were to be dead or still Strigoi. Adrian has this bad boy side to him that everyone wants. He’s sweet when he needs or wants to be. He’s hot, rich, and not snobish like other royals. Dimitri needs to let his guard down every once in a while though. Thats for sure.

    Christian is like my best guy friend so I like him alot. I think he’s perfect for Lissa cuz they balance each other out. Rose and him are like brother and sister although they’ll never admit it.

    Cant wait till Last Sacrifice in December!

  15. Jessica S. says:

    I definitely like Rose. As many might! 😉 I think I connect with her because at times I have the same attitude as she does. A bit snarky and sarcastic, that type of thing!

  16. Britney Wyatt says:

    Adrian!!!! He’s just so multi-faceted and really sexy!

  17. Jamie says:

    Thanks for the great contests. I am currently reading the 3rd book in the VA series, loved them all. Rose is my favorite character, I just love her attitude and her sarcastic comments.

  18. Dania Homsi says:

    I like all of the characters, but my favorites are rose, dimitri, and christian, simply because they kick ass!!!

  19. Jessica Styer says:

    I like Lissa she is stronger than she realizes and she loves people through thick and thin. She is sweet and come on how cool would it be to be able to heal.

    I like Dimitri. He tries to do the honorable thing. He recognizes Rose’s stregnth and does not try to stifle it or make her a damsel – he supports her. And he fights like a bad ass.

  21. kennifer says:

    Follower +1
    Question +2
    I like Rose. I identify with her most because people don’t really know her. They assume she is a certain way (slutty) when she is not. I admire her because she is strong, independant, fierce, fearless and sassy.

  22. i think i am most like rose. we are very protective and would do anything to protect people. Plus we both have attitude. plus she is very confident and i love that about her

  23. elaing8 says:

    I like Rose.Rose cause shes such a strong woman who can take care of herself but has a soft vulnerable side,who’s loyal to her friends.

  24. Stephanie S. says:

    Oh my gosh, I love all of the main characters in this series! They are all so dynamic and fun to read about! I really hope Dimitri and Rose get back together again in the last book; I like Adrian a lot, but I think the aforementioned pair are perfect for one another!

  25. Nicole says:

    i relate the most to Christian because i stand up for myself and don’t let what other people think affect me. I have my friends and popularity isn’t what i’m after i’d rather have a few true friends

  26. Daisy Ruiz says:

    Every character has something that I can relate to, but the character that has the most traits and challenges that resonate with me is Lissa. Like her, I always feel the need to do the right thing and help as many people as I can. And like her, I am a loyal friend that would do anything for the people that I love.

  27. Meranda says:

    Love this series

  28. Viki S. says:

    Really nice shirts. Thanks for the excellent contest.

  29. Stacey Smith says:

    I like the Shirts
    I Think that Adrian is very entresting Character

  30. Lily says:

    I love Rose, I know she is the main character and so a lot of people will pick her but she is such a strong role model for girls these days, I know she is fictional but I would much prefer them to be looking up to her than some of the famous women around these days… She is loyal, protective but also has a softer side. She also shows that women can ‘kick butt’ too and lets not forget, she has such a way with words 😀

  31. Mandy says:

    I love Rose. I love her strength and how she still has struggles. I love her wit and sarcasm and her attitude. I don’t know if I relate to her so much as I wish I was more like her. 🙂

  32. Kristie C says:

    I’m going to be totally unoriginal here. Rose is my favorite character. She’s a true warrior, but she’s also a typical teenage girl. She has spunk and strenght, but she’s also vulnerable and hot-headed. Her sarcasm is so my sense of humor! Unfortunately, I’m unable to relate to her. I’m not a sexy warrior torn between two hot guys. I’m a librarian. 😉

  33. jessica b says:

    my favorite character is adrian. besides being hot hes also really sweet and caring towards rose.

    I love Adrian! I think he’s a bad boy but he’s also really sweet and whenever he’s in a scene…idk I just melt…….

  35. Amy Jacobs says:

    I am a Rose fan because she kicks butt!! LOL

  36. Rachel445 says:

    My favorite character is probably Rose, with Dimitri being a close second. I love that she’s strong and independent, and will do anything to protect the people she loves. But I like that she also has flaws, such as not thinking things through, because it makes her more realistic.

  37. Amie C says:

    Great giveaway! As with most, Rose is my favourite character, but i’d identify more with Lissa. She feels the constant need to help everyone around her, even animals. She also proves that she is stronger than people take her for and I can truely identify with this.

  38. raychel says:

    Favorite character? Rose. Yes she is strong and independent, but I like her best because she makes huge mistakes with huge consequences. And she deals with it all with stubborness and grit (and sometimes even more mistakes).

  39. Melissa says:

    Rose Hathaway, because what we have in common i’m sarcastic a major smart ass and love Dimitri. Plus shes strong independent and she may make gigantic mistake but she fixes them some times making an even bigger mistake but she takes it all with stubborness and will power.

  40. Armelle says:

    My favorite character is Christan. I love him because he has a good sense of humor and he is hilarious. I also like fire!

    The character I really connect with is Lissa. She’s a lot like me – shy and quiet, but able to speak up and defend her cause when it’s necessary. We’re both ready to go to hell and back when it comes to our friends and the things we believe in. And like her, when something or someone makes me mad I really lash out despite my otherwise calm personality. It happens rarely, but when it does, people say I become scary. Just like Lissa. 😀

  42. Aashna says:

    Awesome giveaway!
    Total Dimitri lover, but Adrian is awesome too! <3
    Rose i my favorite character and I love her relationship with Christian! =)

  43. Wow! Awesome contest!! I gotta say I love Dimitri, I can’t help it!! There’s just something about him!! Thank you for the contest!

  44. Maribel Alanis says:

    The character I love the most of the Vampire Academy Series I have to say is Tasha Ozera. I love how she went from being reliable on guardians to believeing she can protect herself. Now that’s what I call self-motivation! 🙂 I connect with her in that way! I went from being just in clubs to signing myself in a boxing class! I learned alot in that class and now am able to protect myself as well. They may not bge strigoi out there but I am confident in defending myself long enough to call for extra help!

  45. Megan Dubyuh says:

    I am a Dimitri fan like everyone else. There is just something about him that makes you feel all melty inside even when he was all evil and Strigoi.
