Nerdy props for your wedding photobooth (plus other supplies from ThinkGeek)

By on Jul. 15th

So you're doing a DIY photobooth, and you're thinking to yourself, "Self, I might need some props." And your self replies, "Maybe, but you don't need wooden mustaches. No, what you really need are some NERDY props." Then you and yourself high five and are like OMG YES TOTALLY, and then you start brainstorming.

Here are a few of my suggestions, all from ThinkGeek

As always with these kinds of things, click the pictures to learn more!


Totoro Plush Hat

Domo-kun Plush Hat

It doesn't matter if your family never seen My Neighbor Totoro, or never heard of Domokun — everyone looks cuter in one of these hats.

Finger Tentacles

…because haven't you heard? Tentacles are totally the new "Put a bird on it."

Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver of the 11th Doctor

Because, if you're a Whovian, nothing says "I love you" like a sonic screwdriver.

Star Wars Force FX Lightsabers

Ok yes fine: they're expensive. But epic lightsaber battles ALL NIGHT LONG at your wedding reception? That's a temptation for the ages

Plush Beating Heart

Love can be so metaphorical. So full of poetry. Let your guests get literal: I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY ANATOMICALLY-CORRECT STUFFED BEATING HEART.

Ok, and now SHIT. Now that I'm clicking around ThinkGeek, I'm seeing all this other stuff that would be awesome for your wedding. Hold on, check it out:

DIY Guitar Pick Punch

This guitar pick punch let's you make guitar picks out of old debit cards or plastic packaging or anything else you can think of. Bad-ass DIY wedding favors, anyone?

The ThinkGeek 'Ties Suck' Tie

If your groomsmen or bridesboys aren't toootally sure about having to wear a tie, they could rock one of these ties that read "Ties Suck" in binary code. Or, of course there's always the infamous 8 Bit Tie:

The ThinkGeek 8-bit Tie

And for your bridesmaids:

Wonder Woman Costume Babydoll

Best bridesmaid gifts evar, am I right? Imagine the pre-"getting ready" photo ops the morning of the wedding!

Oh-oh, and if you're going for the '80s retro gamer thing, picture your flower girl in this:

8-Bit Hair Bow

8-bit hair ribbon! OMG ADORBZ.



Ok, ok. I must control myself. Evidently, I'm in an uber ThinkGeeky mood. I mean, CUPCAKE LIP BALM!? Stuffed sushi? HTTPanties? Caffeine Molecule Necklace!?
Omgpwnies Red Ladies Computer Bag
!? None of this has anything to do with weddings, but are you kidding me?!

I know several former Offbeat Brides have gotten wedding supplies from ThinkGeek — anyone want to weigh in with the nerdy supplies they procured?
