Just in Time

So, Have you seen the TV show on Nickelodeon called Avatar: The Last Airbender?
Yes? Wonderful!!! Aren't you excited to see the movie Last Airbender? Cause I am!
No? What is wrong with you! Go see it all now!!!

Arguably the best show on Nick when it came out, and still, it is a fantastic series following a few main characters, the most prominent of which is Aang, the avatar and last airbender mentioned in the title. His love interest from early on is Katara who sports this lovely hand carved necklace. So I decided to make one of my own. I know you can get pretty good replicas in resin from a few places on the internet, but I'm not that crafty. Instead I opted for paint.

On the reverse side? The White Lotus Pai Sho tile from Uncle Iroh's set. Pai Sho? It's a fictional game, I think, that they play in the Avatar TV series. Seems to be kind of like chess I would think. Not to mention there is a great little subtle plot line around the White Lotus. Anyway, its just in time for the movie and I can't wait to show it off. Along with my Appa hat!
