Want to hunt like Katniss Everdeen or dress like Peeta Mellark? Well, now you can thanks to an auction of "Hunger Games" memorabilia on May 20.

The event was announced by Lionsgate, the studio responsible for the Jennifer Lawrence-led blockbuster film franchise, which has made over $1 billion in revenue, according to Box Office Mojo.

Those wishing to bid can show up at the Los Angeles-based auction house or simply participate online.

The studio partnered with Hollywood auction house Profiles in History to sell around 500 costumes, props and set pieces from all four movies.

This is the first time a studio has done an auction of this magnitude, according to Profiles in History publicist Jeff Hare who spoke with CNBC.

Fans and collectors can expect the opening bids to be anywhere from $100 to $10,000 depending on the item, said Hare. There will also be a chance to win giveaways.

"Everyone will have a chance to acquire items from their favorite characters and moments of The Hunger Games series," said Joe Maddalena, President, Profiles in History in the announcement's press release.

"We're extremely proud to offer a collection of this caliber for such a beloved studio franchise."
