Once a week I sift through the millions of Etsy listings to find the best in geek chic for Blog@ readers. Last week I tried something new by focusing on just one Etsy user and her delightful Gotham Chic prints. I’m going back to basics this week though and showing some love to one of my favorite characters – Batgirl. Surprisingly, there really wasn’t that much Batgirl product on Etsy, so here’s my call to all you craftsters out there: MAKE MORE. Thank you.
Goodness gracious. I almost fell over from the cuteness of this one. It’s the Cupcake Eatin’ Batgirl bottle cap necklace from user anilineblack. For $16 you can gaze at Barbara Gordon really enjoying some cupcakes. And let’s face it, who doesn’t? Also available, Cupcake Eatin’ Batman. Hehe!
Holy glitter Batgirl! (I know, I’m just luring the guys in this week, aren’t I?) This pin-up style Batgirl Glitter Art will definitely brighten up any living space. User tigergalindo has this for $35. There’s also a Wonder Woman piece and several other comic characters from both DC and Marvel available.
Comic book decoupage is a popular craft on Etsy. One day, my whole house will be filled with it. Until then, perhaps you’d like this Batgirl Plate by erindara for $35? Or, if you’d prefer to wear Barbara, a Batgirl bracelet from Customcomix for $17.
Also falling in the adorable category this week, a set of four Super Gals Magnets. User greenbeanbaby also includes Spider Woman, Smurfette, Wonder Woman in the set for $6.25.
As always, bear in mind, since Etsy is a craft website and not a commercial, mass-market dealer, items are almost always one-of-a-kind or in very limited availability. When you see something you like, buy it. It may not be there the next time you surf round. (Yes, it’s a very dangerous site for your wallet.) Also, since most items are created individually, many sellers are willing to customize something specifically to suit your needs. Just ask!
