A new season of True Blood doesn’t return to HBO until the end of June, but there’s something to hold over die-hard fans (including us) in the meantime—handbags inspired by the show. Los Angeles company Hammitt teamed up with HBO to create a five-item collection, and each piece features details relating to the characters. “I tried to stay true to each character and hone in on their individual style and essence,” designer Sharon Rodriguez told InStyle. “As a huge fan of the show, I was ecstatic to be given the opportunity.” The options include a suede Sookie-inspired satchel, faux-fur Alcide handbag, riveted-leather Fangtasia bag (above), metallic black leather Layfayette bag, and studded Eric bag (our fave!). The pieces are available for pre-order now at store.HBO.com for $395 to $675. So, take a break from obsessing over Bill and Sookie’s unsure future—fans, you know what we mean—and find your True Blood bag match in the gallery. Your favorite may surprise you! True Blood returns June 26th at 9 p.m. EST on HBO.

Scarlett Johansson also showed off her latest hairstyle in a sea foam green Elie Saab dress that offset the color of her freshly dyed red bob.
