Superhero Themed Wedding For the Win

ww1

Honestly, when done right, you can’t beat a themed wedding. They can be simply the best.

On May 11th of this year, Heather and Kim tied the knot inside the Greenville Children’s Museum. The theme of their wedding? Comic books and superheroes. It looks as if it was a beautiful event, both in ceremony and in decor. Their decorations were superhero themed, including comic strip napkin rings, the color schemes of their flowers, and vintage comic postcards for their guests to write notes on in lieu of a guestbook. Unsurprisingly, there were a lot of superhero logo t-shirts worn under jackets, just waiting to be revealed in the class Superman pose. Heather even baked a beautiful Wonder Woman and Xena themed cake. Yes, it looks like Heather and Kim’s superhero themed wedding was certainly a dream come true for them, and certainly an event to remember by everyone in attendance.Continue Reading

Mike Stimpson Brings Star Wars Lego to Life in His Photography

toy1

If there’s one thing Mike Stimpson excels in, its taking pictures of Star Wars lego. Stimpson has been on Flickr since September of 2006, and has posted six hundred and ninety-two photographs since he first joined. This longtime Flickr user started off his account by posting a mix of nature photography, portraits of material goods, and simple lego figurines; however, the longer he stayed on Flickr, the more he’d share photographs of only lego, usually of the Star Wars persuasion. Stimpson will occasionally still share a nature shot, or perhaps a portrait of himself, but it’s become rare for him to post art that doesn’t involve legos nowadays. While his lego photography first started off as flat and generic, now his photos are detailed and funny. The lego feel brought to life in Stimpson’s photography, as he finds innovative ways to mold them in each picture he takes. Stimpson has also released his first book, Stormtroopers, We Love You, which can be purchased over on blurb for $17.25 (soft cover), $29.31 (hardcover, dust jacket), or $34.58 (hardcover, ImagineWrap).Continue Reading

Geek Interior Design: Intense Portal-themed Bedroom

portal6

Themed bedrooms tend to go one of two ways. If not done properly, they either come off as sad or the lair of a crazy person. However, when done right they can be amazing. Lucky for us, this Portal-themed bedroom falls into the latter category.

Created by Lauren, who credits herself as an accountant/painter/gamer/adrenaline junkie/nerd/everything enthusiast. This bedroom first began garnering attention over on Reddit, and now all of the Internet is abuzz about it. Lauren’s had some experiencing designing rooms before, but never anything so bold as her Portal bedroom. Over on her blog, not only has she shared a slew of pictures of her design and layout, but she has begun to explain how she went about getting her room to look like this. She’s showed what the room looked like before she did anything to it, some of the materials and tools she used in crafting her design, where she purchased the wall art and furniture, etc. The finished product truly is incredible. All she’s missing is the phrase “The Cake is a Lie” scrawled on one of her walls and this Portal-themed bedroom would be all set.Continue Reading

What child didn’t grow up dreaming of having their very own X-wing Starfighter to ride in? One that they could use to fly to far off distant planets (Dagobah, perhaps?), while also fighting off the evil forces of the Empire and saving the galaxy. While this Star Wars fighter is still not a reality and may never be, there is now an awesome life size X-wing Fighter Plane made entirely out of legos (complete with a lego Luke Skywalker inside), which was revealed in New York City last week.Continue Reading

Female Game Developer Calls Boss Out On Sexism Using Poster Of Scantily Clad Dude

hawken1
A female games developer working at Hawken developer Meteor Entertainment had a bit of a problem with a poster that her boss CEO Mark Long had hanging proudly in the office, it featured a lady mechanic not exactly wearing much in the way of clothing and it really really irritated her.

She said

It is the first thing workers and visitors see when they enter the building and the last thing they see when they leave. This little lady’s undermeats have been the open- and close- parens to my work world for the last six months.
