2:10PM - Because YOU demanded it (or not)!
7:21PM - Stay classy, Twilight merchandising. Stay classy.
After some consideration, I've decided to x-post this from the sparklefield because it's a very special kind of transcendent, as in...how is Twilight the first fandom to actually Go There with this sort of merchandising? Srsly.
I think I'll let the product speak for itself since I cannot -- well and truly cannot -- find the words:
You can now have RPattz's face buried in your crotch any time you wish. Think I'm kidding? Check out the completely classy detail painstakingly created for the panty lining.
*just looks at y'all*
11:26PM - A Revolutionary Girl Utena themed wedding from down under
Anli & Laura's Lesbian Gamer Geek WeddingHere's the music the couple used for their processional: Hikaru sasa niwa.
The offbeat bride: Anli, data analyst
Her offbeat partner: Laura, public servant
Location & date of wedding: The Old Stone House, NSW Australia — 5 September 2009
What made our wedding offbeat: We wanted a ceremony that reflected our geeky, romantic, pink aesthetic, while at the same time being profound and meaningful. Our ceremony was themed around the video game Portal and the anime series Revolutionary Girl Utena.
We incorporated lots of geeky details, from the table names (Revolution, Sierra, Katara and GLaDOS) to the choice of music. We also kept several traditional elements such as bouquets, dresses and bridesmaids. However, we both walked down the aisle unaccompanied and skipped the garter/bouquet toss.
And we walked down the aisle to an obscure piece of music from Utena.
Go click on through to the Offbeat Bride story. There are lots of lovely photos, including a slide show.
As for the Portal part, a commenter on Kotaku pointed out, "So the cake wasn’t a lie afterall…"
