In the season finale of Heroes of Cosplay there was lots of drama with Team Los Angeles verse Team Atlanta at Kansas City’s Planet Comicon. One of its cosplay stars Victoria managed to dodged all the drama and found herself being part of her very own Stars Wars proposal.
Here’s an alternative idea to a traditional white wedding dress for brides looking for something different (and geeky) for their wedding day. Based on a sketch by artist Anne-Louise Richards this Tardis ball gown was created by Redditor queenofhearts, a three month labor of love of over 120 hours of work, nearly 10m in fabric and 1500+ rhinestones swirling along the skirt.
Proposing to your boyfriend dressed at Thor and him as Loki at Youmacon 2012 is not only the geekiest thing I’ve seen today, but also the sweetest. Having met at a previous Youmacon it was the perfect setting for a proposal for two longtime cosplayers. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but let’s just say, the two are shopping for Loki and Thor related wedding items.
The amazing Jervy Santiago who shot Ingle + Aimee Left 4 Dead Engagement Photos is at it again, this time he’s photographing couple Kristal and Alex in a Full Metal Panic themed shoot. Full Metal Panic is a manga series written by Shoji Gatoh and illustrated by Shiki Douji. The series follows Sousuke Sagara, a member of the covert anti-terrorist private military organization known as Mithril, tasked with protecting Kaname Chidori, a spirited Japanese high school girl. The series has been adapted into different media; including three animated television series: Full Metal Panic! by Gonzo, Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu and Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid by Kyoto Animation.
“It is nice to see couple really getting into it (specially the groom!!!) … They had their outfits tailor-made, shared inputs with the story, up to how it is suppose to be done with the editing. And to make it even more authentic, the pages are read from right to left. Just like the “manga” style.”
This lucky couple was chosen over 499 others by T&G wedding planners to have their wedding under the life-sized Gundam at Odaiba, Japan in 2009. A 1:1 scale model of the classic RX-78-2 Gundam mecha, built to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the franchise. It was then taken apart and brought over to Shizuoka for exhibition until it got damaged in the earthquake. This couple is so madly in love with Gundam that they even named their newly born daughter “Seira”, which isn’t a Gundam character; but Seirra from Gundam 00 is, or it could be Char’s sister Sayla, either one of them. The groom wore a federation uniform from the series.
