What happens when two Harry Potter geeks fall in love, plan a tasteful themed wedding, and find just the right photographer?

Magic of course.

Cassie and Lewis Byrom‘s whimsical wedding took place at the Manchester Town Hall, and photographer Kelly Clarke captured the surreal beauty of the event. I have to say, it’s one of the most gorgeous nerdy weddings we’ve ever seen.

Fashion designer and costumer Hannah Barucky knows just how to make Firefly fans happy with these super cute dresses. Originally made as part of a student project, they walked the runway at Amazing Arizona Comic Con and you can definitely see that she’s got a feel for the ‘Verse.

hug hoodie

Cuddling close with a loved one is a tried-and-true method of staying warm. Now you can share body heat AND the love while loitering with the Together Wear hoodie.

It has “special hugging pockets”.

The concept is “to be closer together and to share the warmth of love while hugging,” and to, “feel as one while remaining two.”

Hahaha…gag. It’s cute though. Seriously. Check out the Kickstarter project video below along with additional pics.

So thaaaaat’s how they did that.

How much work went into making Deadpool look as shiny-snazzy-beautiful as possible for his debut solo movie outing? As it turns out, quite a lot. Not only did the design team working on the movie fret over the shape of the eyes and the face, they also had to make concessions for things like stunts and breathability.

Check out the behind-the-scenes snippet below.

McCall’s has teamed up exclusively with Fashionably Geek to premiere the third wave of patterns in the Cosplay By McCall’s collection.

Two new patterns BELLE ROGUE and BELLE NOIR were developed in partnership with Ichigo Black, a designer known for her Japanese fashion inspired line of handmade clothing. Like all of her pieces, these new McCall’s patterns draw their inspiration from gothic, lolita and steampunk styles.

But wait until you check out the pics below. The patterns pop even more thanks to custom pieces from Extasia Jewelry, wigs from Arda Wigs, and some gorgeous DIY bridal bouquets (tutorials for the bouquets will be available soon).

boba fett hair

Anya Goy of Rainbow Hair Colour entered a Star Wars Hair Art contest with this gem. Cosplay has never been more manageable.

It’s not helmet head, it’s Boba Fett—and it’s glorious.

fake nail stockings

I don’t know whether this idea is genius or super genius, but leave it to Japan to come up with it.

Belle Maison has created stockings with pre-painted toenails in a variety of colors and designs. Don’t have time to get a pedicure? No problem!

Plus, they’re fitted to each toe, so you don’t have to worry about your “nails” moving around too much.

Take a closer look below.

her universe TFA styles

As SDCC inches closer (I’m not ready, are you?) Her Universe is having a good time teasing new clothes and planning for the Her Universe Fashion Show. For example, the image above shows off the upcoming Phasma jacket and leggings and the BB-8 / Kylo Ren dresses that will debut soon at Hot Topic.

If you’re in the Los Angeles area, the open call for prospective designers for this year’s Her Universe Fashion Show at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 is this Saturday, April 23rd at 1pm. Just bring your sketches/designs, portfolio and examples of previous work.

If you’re not a designer, you can still be a part of the fun. The Comic-Con HQ channel will be filming for the new series about The Her Universe Fashion Show and you’ll be among the first to see and purchase the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens collection designed by last year’s fashion show winners Kelly Cercone and Leetal Platt.

You can get more information on the event page on Facebook.
