Etsy Tuesday: Avatar: The Last Airbender

So I’ve been completely caught up in learning how to teach a class, and I haven’t written anything on Red Dead Redemption or Portal 2 (which I finished a couple weeks ago). I’ve decided that I probably won’t–it’s too untimely. There was something I wanted to muse about regarding Red Dead Redemption, but I managed to do so with a friend.

I’m also trying to salvage a couple of DIYs, so hopefully one will be up by Saturday.

So, back to your scheduled programming: Etsy Tuesday–Avatar: The Last Airbender edition.

Today’s Etsy Tuesday was prompted by my sister. Back in August, my brother and I were talking about our Avatar cosplays for Chicago Comic Con. We were going as Azula and Zuko, and my sister wanted to know what she could be. Of course, I told her Appa. Then I went on Etsy and found this for her:

Though she didn’t get it (and neither my brother nor sister ended up cosplaying with me), I still think this is the cutest thing in the world. I might even get it myself for my workplace Halloween costume and air it with some white clothes. I doubt anyone in the Political Science department will get it, but I will still enjoy it.

The shop GeekinOut¬†also has a particularly adorable R2D2 hat, a Gir hat with ear flaps, and a Cthulu mask, all crocheted. There’s tons of other products, too (twelve pages of options!), so I’d definitely recommend giving it a look.
Next up is another great option for my geeky-enough-that-I-love-it-but-not-distracting-enough-so-I-can-teach-in-it jewelry collection: an Earth Kingdom pendant. It’s beautiful, and only those people who are familiar with the show will recognize it as anything but a regular pendant. It’s made by Meagan Dibb, and sold in the shop MeaganDibbJewellery. This is another shop with tons of geeky options–you’ll be sure to find something that suits your fancy.
$20.00 USD
While I would love to own this next set of glasses, the truth is that I own way too many glasses as it is (seriously, my cabinet is completely full). So one of you will have to buy these, so I can live vicariously through you. These are a set of pint glasses with the Avatar elemental nations/tribes symbols etched on them. I particularly like how well-sized these symbols are–they’re commanding of the front of the glasses, but you can still see the whole thing. They’re sold in the shop Partywareinc, which also sells these in shotglass size.
$46.00 USD

I have always wanted my own air bison, so I love the idea of this Appa pillow pet (I know, I know, apparently MoMo gets no love). It’s constructed just like the pillow pets you’d find in stores, except that Appa is way better than a hippo or a moose. It’s made by Meghan O’Laoghaire and is sold in the shop DemonicDJKitty.

$40.00 USD
I particularly like this final piece because it’s not so blatantly attached to Avatar, but it is inspired by the White Lotus secret society. I think it’s a beautiful piece, with the pearls, the flowers, and the metalwork behind them. The shop owner, KA, makes beautiful jewelry and a few more pieces are connected with ATLA in ways that I find clever. This is from the shop jewelrybending, which you should definitely check out if you like Avatar or Asian-inspired jewelry.
$43.00 USD

Well, that’s all for today! Hopefully I’ll get a hang of this lesson-planning thing soon and have time to be a better blogger. As usual, if you have any particular theme you think I should pursue for Etsy Tuesday next week, leave a comment!
