Mommy’s Little Airbender!

We love playing with makeup…  it’s just not always used the way it’s intended.  I’ll do my makeup roughly once or twice a month (seriously, I rarely wear any, and when I do it’s usually just a touch of it here or there.  It’s a highly unusual occasion that sees me with eye shadow, lip gloss, mascara, dusting powder, and blush).  The girl likes to do her own makeup though, and tends to go all out when given the opportunity.  However, when she asks me to do hers?  We usually come up with something extra fun.

Today the girl decided she wanted to have an arrow on her head just like Aang (from Avatar the Last Airbender – for the not avatards among us).  So I pulled out my blue eyeliner – which I have for just such occasions, cause goodness knows it’ll never be used on my eyes, grabbed her blue eye shadow, scoped out her blue glitter (made sure it wasn’t crusty yet) and held her bangs out of the way.

First I drew and coloured in the arrow with my dark blue liner.  Then I dabbed over the entirety of it with her light blue shadow.  For that extra punch, I then lined it with the blue glitter.  So, yeah…  purists may argue that Airbenders don’t have an outline around theirs, but come on…  blue glitter!  Ya gotta use glitter when you get the chance.  Sparkles just make everything better!

Voila!  Instant airbender!

Here are a few shots I nabbed with my iPhone:

I keep a wipe off marker board with four markers and an eraser in the car.  It helps keep the girl busy when she’s tired of being cooped up.  It’s got a number of slide in sheets that can give it a different look, and allows her to switch out the background whenever she likes.  The sheets have things like lines for practicing her writing, tic tac toe graphs, blank open space, grids…  and she can flip them out and around all on her own.  It’s a perfect thing for in the back seat.  I love it!

Today we were in the car for a total of about twenty minutes.  We had to get groceries and then stopped for slurpees at the co-op convenience store on the way home.  During this time she did four different drawings, and asked me to share them.  They are all of different members of “Team Avatar”.  And for those of you who are fans of The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, you should have no trouble at all identifying each character.  She still has a couple she’d like to add, but here are her creations thus far:

I love all the detail she put into the Cabbage Merchant…  she even passed the board up to me in the front seat so I could add text into her speech bubble.  It says “My Cabbages!!”

A Bunch of Benders

After supper the three of us sat down to watch the season finale for The Legend of Korra.  It’s a show all three of us enjoy together.  It’s well written, and humorously animated.  After watching the finale, the girl began pondering what each of us would be able to bend, should we be benders.  We all took our guesses at one another.  We had a good laugh, and had fun teasing one another about who among us might be “Tootbenders”.  Then I proposed we check online and see what we could find.  After a quick search, I found a couple of quizes that reveal your bending tendencies.  Here are our results.

Quiz One:  http://quizilla.teennick.com/quizzes/4887819/what-bending-type-best-suits-you-avatar-quiz

Lily-Ann

You would excel at Waterbending.
Water is a unique and fascinating element, strongly tied to the will of the Moon. The Moon and water work together, push and pull, and create harmony. Water is also the creator of all life, healing and assisting. One suffiecient in Waterbending would need to have strong ties to the Moon and much grace.

It said that I too would be an Airbender, which I’m sure wouldn’t shock anyone.

The second quiz was a lot more in depth, but wasn’t quite as fun.  LOL  I loved the “camping in the woods when a bandit comes along” scenario in the first one.  It cracked us all up as we imagined ourselves in that situation.  But I LOVED the little chart that actually breaks down exactly how you fit into each element on the second quiz.  Very cool.

Damon

You Scored as Firebender

Firebending origin is still unknown, but it has been mentioned that it has a strong relation with the sun. Firebenders’ fighting style is fast, precise, aggressive and sometimes vicious. An experienced firebender can create lightning or a kind of blue fire, like Azula, that is hotter and with more impact power. This element lacks in defensive properties, but if you took this result you must be the kind of person that likes to be the one that gives the first step and attack first, giving the enemie no opportunity to strike. Warning: Firebending exiges great discipline, because if used lightly, it can hurt the bender and people around them – by that you can see that a firebender can still get burnt. They weakness is low temperatures and high moisture.

You Scored as Airbender

Airbenders learned their art from the Sky Bisons. They have a peaceful philosophy and avoid conflict. Their airbending abilities allow them to fly (with a kind of glider), enhance their jumps, speed and reflexes and can create an Air Cushion to break falls. If you took this result you’re the kind of person that likes to feel free and have a great imagination. Airbenders’ advantage is that they have no problems about the enviroment to bend, since there’s air everywhere. But, underwater, airbender will have difficulties to find air, because they would have to use the air from the surface, or take out air from underground, what would spend too much energy, depending on the distance of both. Another weakness of airbending is the lack of deadly finishing moves, but there is a vicious technique that the airbender could use, that is to take the air out of the enemie’s lungs, but since airbenders are totally against harming seriously someone, they would never do this.

Now, considering I scored as an Airbender on this one, and Damon scored as a Firebender?  Her result is super awesome!  As she ended up tied between both.  I mean, seriously?  How cool!  😉

So, curious at all?  I know I’d be.  LOL  So why don’t you hop on over and do a quiz, and then run on back here and tell us all about your bending skillz!  😀
