For as much as I love TV, I typically try to refrain from collecting collectibles. Besides the numerous DVD sets, I’ve only got a replica Angel puppet doll from “Smile Time” (5×14), a Buffy lego-like character, a couple of TV show posters, and a replica monkey bookend from Wonderfalls. But lately I’ve been on the lookout for any cool Christmas tree ornaments. After all, it’s a useful collectible item that doesn’t take up space year round.
Perhaps I was being a bit picky, but I was having a hard time finding something worthy of going on the Christmas tree. I didn’t want an ornament with an actor’s photo on it or a weird character bust. Seriously, isn’t it creepy to hang basically just the head of your favorite character?
But then I found a beautiful Firefly Serenity Christmas ornament on Etsy from ThroughThickandThin. It was exactly what I was looking for!
This hang-able version of Captain Malcolm Reynolds’ beloved spaceship Serenity is made from mirrored acrylic and is about 4.5 inches long from bow to stern. And as you can see from my picture above, it looks pretty damn good on the Christmas tree too. Fellow Browncoats are sure to love the simple nod to the show, but for the uninitiated it’s doesn’t seem out of place either.
Although it’s probably too late to get your own Firefly Serenity ornament in time for Christmas, there’s always next year.
