hi loves! if you tweeted messages to me in the last few days (for my wee uk contest), check your twitter direct messages. a random list of winners have been chosen. i am near loch ness (its GORGEOUS here), but will be posting prizes later today or tomorrow.
fellow fan feed back please…
i will be in the uk for 10 days… while i was getting some things ready early, i thought about all the fans i know that have never been able to have a plush Appa delivered to them because of steep international postage…
well… then i got an idea…
i could bring a plush Appa with me, and send it to a fan in the uk while i am on holiday. problem is… i can only bring one Appa. i am traveling very light because my trip will be full of trains, planes, and automobiles. i can not have more than one manageable suitcase. so i thought i would host a contest on twitter (for UK Avatar the Last Airbender/Korra fans) to help me choose the recipient of this soft treasure.
but, i am not sure if there will be enough UK fans interested in a sweet cuddly Appa… i am sure i can fit a few copies of Dark Horse’s The Promise 1, 2, and 3 into my carry on for 2nd or 3rd place winners as well.
so friends, what do you think? a little too ambitious? should i save future Appa giveaways for fan panels only, or try to share one overseas?
sdcc seems to be doing things a bit differently than in the past. i was very excited to have our fan panel situated in the actual convention center this year. granted, i was really getting used to the cozy homier atmosphere of our regular location in the hotel. so when we heard we had been relocated, i was enthusiastic about the possibilities, but cautious. would we have new drawbacks? would there be more space for fans?
it seems that sdcc has chosen room 28E to be the new home for fan groups this year. our panel seems to be the first panel in the room for saturday (that i can tell so far). after our awesome fan extravaganza, we will be followed by the twilight fan group, little lulu, lost, and indiana jones fan group.
last year, we were a bit late leaving the room for the twilight fan fiction fan group, so we will try to get our cosplay contest judged and prizes awarded sooner to avoid stealing time from our fan panel brethren :)
Yup, I’m spamming the fanwaves, and linking you lovies with as much SDCC ATLA/TLOK awesome I can get my hands on :) If you have an event, or know of a meet up or after party, let me know! :)
So far, here are a few things to consider if you are attending SDCC this Summer (about 2 weeks away!)
We just keep packing MORE ATLA/TLOK into SDCC :) The first ATLA related panel I am aware of this year is on Thursday at 10am. I do not know all the details yet, but I thought I would give you lovelies a heads up.

10:00a.m. - 11:00a.m., Room: 23ABC
Creators and artists are developing engrossing characters from underrepresented groups. Our panelists from different mediums will discuss their creative processes and how can fans support their diversity efforts! Featuring novelist and comic book writer Marjorie Liu (Astonishing X-Men), video game writer David Gaider (Dragon Age), comic book writer Brandon Thomas (Miranda Mercury), showrunner and screenwriter Javier Grillo-Marxuach (The Middleman), and writer Sarah Kuhn (One Con Glory), moderated by Racebending.com!
Of course, everyone attending SDCC probably knows that Friday morning will be the BIG Korra line up in Ballroom 20D :)

Cosplay planning is still in effect. You can check out Sockai-Chan’s thread on Cosplay.com. When things are closer to being settled, it will be posted here as well :)
If you didn’t stay up too late with Korra panel jitters, head over to room 28E for this Summer’s Avatar Legacy Fan Panel. Here is the description:
July 14th 11:00 - 12:00 Avatar the Last Airbender - Beginning and Beyond - Room 28E - For over 5 years, the organizers of this fan panel have been bringing together both fans and professionals. Moderated by Avatar_Mom, this year’s panel will include Bobby Rubio (Avatar the Last Airbender, Pixar, Alcatraz High), Freelance Concept Artist DJ Welch (Dark Kenjie), Kevin Coppa (Puppet Benders), and Actor/Voice Actor Dante Basco (Avatar the Last Airbender), and perhaps a few more surprise guests. If that isn’t enough, there will be a cosplay contest to showcase the fandom’s talented “fabric benders.”
Then finally, aTallearthbender shared this awesome information. Here’s a snippet of his post for everyone:
…In addition to all the exciting events surrounding Legend of Korra and Avatar The Last Airbender, please come out and support TEAM AVATAR, which consist of some of the biggest fans of the Avatar series. We are excited to be a part of such an amazing event and we hope that all of you wonderful, dedicated fans will join us at this year’s Comic Con Masquerade!!!!!
8:30 p.m. Saturday, July 14 in Ballroom 20 of the Convention Center. The event will run three hours, and doors will open at 7:45 p.m. for audience seating. As the line will start forming long before then, early arrival is suggested. Tickets for seating will be given out FREE to people in the line beginning at 2:00 PM. A ticket guarantees a seat, so you need not stay in line after you receive yours. After tickets have been distributed to the people in line, any that may remain from the 3,900 available will be given out at the Masquerade Desk. Should you be unable to obtain tickets there will also be overflow seating in the Sails Pavilion and in other ballrooms where the show will be projected on giant screens. Reserved seating is available for convention special guests…
Michael DiMartino is on Tumblr. Just in time for the finale :)
… seriously, you all and your ships. you crack me up. personally, i am not interested in the whole, “young girl and older man” dynamic. you know, since we are shipping everything that moves in korra, i think its time to ship lin and iroh. yup yup yup
and btw fandom, you are all so clever to point out that iroh is on a boat xD
Sockai-Chan is getting things going for ATLA/Korra cosplayers attending SDCC. She has started a thread on Cosplay.com for more information. Last year was a tough meet up to plan. There were too many overlapping time lines to really pin down a good time and place. Hopefully, this year cosplayers who want connect will have a few options :)
Thank you Sockai-Chan!
