zelda wedding 1

Alex and Grace met through a mutual friend and both of them joined a gaming group that got together every week to play titles like Dungeons and Dragons and Link’s Crossbow Training. They became friends but didn’t start dating immediately—and when they did, it was long distance. As you might guess from the title of this post, they eventually got engaged and decided on a Legend of Zelda themed wedding. They explained to their photographer:

We are both huge fans of the Legend of Zelda video game series by Nintendo and our mutual love of the game has been a pretty strong point in our relationship. Alex and I both had seen quite a few articles about game-inspired weddings on websites like Kotaku and Offbeat Bride, and when we officially started planning our wedding, it seemed like a Zelda theme would reflect our love very well and be enormously fun to plan.

The Zelda touches included cupcakes topped with green rupees, elf ears for the bridal party, potion cocktails, and subtle placement of the Triforce symbol.

This shirt will explain to the world why you’re not all chipper and ready to go first thing in the morning. You’re not lazy. You’ve been up all night fighting evil by moonlight. The work of a Sailor Scout is never done.

I saw it on tumblr

How strange is the Internet world? Well, this post is inspired by a tweet about how people say they saw things on Tumblr.

Anyway, here’s the tote bag. I’m pretty sure when you buy it and a friend asks, you can now say “I saw it on Fashionably Geek, who saw it on Twitter, who saw it on Tumblr”.

Gorgeous Korra Cosplay

korra cosplay 1

Korra, current Avatar and protagonist of The Legend of Korra, is one sassy, kick-butt, and occasionally bratty character. I love most of her qualities, and cosplayer Ally, a.k.a. CosmicNya, really communicates the character’s spunky personality in this photo series. Also, it doesn’t hurt that her Korra costume and hair are spot on.

I’ve never played The Witcher: Battle Arena, but this cosplay of Philippa Eilhart by Issabel Cosplay have definitely intrigued me. This version of Philippa is from a rare skin called Avian Legacy and I think it’s gorgeous.

While we’re talking gorgeous, the photos by MLC foto are that and more.

Head after the break to see more of this fantastic cosplay.

batgirl costume 1

What if Batgirl from Batman: The Animated Series met Batgirl of Burnside? That costume mash-up would be amazing, and cosplayer EmberPhantom has made it happen. The outfit has the yellow Doc Martens and accessories from the new Batgirl comics but pairs them with a black body suit rather than a purple one. I love it.

This fantastically intricate necklace recreates the maze from The Shining. It’s made from Brass Alloy #260 and takes 18.6 million revolutions on a CNC machine to create. The maze measures 2.25″ x 4″ with a 23″chain. If you prefer not to wear it, the necklace comes ready for display in a shadowbox with a reversible black velvet background / rug pattern from the Overlook Hotel.
