My cousin, Pammie's daughter, Alicia and her fiance, Joel, are not only in to it, but they are an avid comic couple. They actually have the artistic talent to draw and write their own comic adventures.
So when they decided on their wedding reception date, they also decided to embrace the entire comic con theme. Hmmmmm, okay, I say (being the hip cousin that I am), I can make your wedding jewelry around this theme.
Luckily, Alicia had decided on Lime Green and Purple as her primary colors for the big day.
She picked out a strapless, tea length, white gown and wanted a lime green sash for it. No problem, I can do this. I have been making sashes for other brides in the traditional ivory and white, so this should be a snap, right?
Honestly, I found all the supplies I wanted/needed and started to design. I needed to keep her age in mind and her choice of theme. Anyone who knows me would understand she had me when she mentioned 'Star Wars' since it is one of my favorite movies and I probably have the lines memorized I have seen it so many times.
I came up with the sash utilizing a method of melting satin and creating some flowers to tie everything together. Let me know what you think.
Oh, yes, I liked the way it turned out. Okay, now I'm on a roll so I made her garter along the same theme.

The cake was a combination of the Darth Vader helmet with a Storm Trooper helmet on top--of course, Hans and Princess Leia were on the very top!
Oh, I was truly in my element now! No, I won't be growing up soon, so just give it up.
The couple endured the agony of cutting the cake and deciding how to feed each other. They decided on forks--how gentile was that?!? I do not like it when the bride and groom smears cake on their new spouse's face, so this was awesome to me.

My favorite picture of the night will give you a little insight into the fun these two will have throughout their new life together.
