I'm kicking off this week's Reader Round-up with pumpkin-unicorn card monster because “pumpkin-unicorn card monster.” ‘Nuff said. This fabulous monster was the creation of Sarah Lewis, the sister-of-the-bride and co-maid of honour. That shit is AWESOME.
In fact, we have a lot more awesome shit for you this week. How about I show you an engagement ring that even Cthulhu would love, a Nightmare Before Christmas cake, some Calvin and Hobbes action, and a bride enjoying her cocktail hour. Let's ogle all the awesome shit our readers uploaded to our Flickr pool…
Is that a tentacle engagement ring? Why yes it is. I do appreciate this photo being shot at Cannon Beach. Where else would tentacled things hang out?
This photo is entitled “the bride enjoying her cocktail hour.” I am thoroughly enjoying this photo of Tribesmaid Knitty.
Look at this Nightmare Before Christmas wedding cake! I'm nutso over it. The cake is covered by all sorts of movie monster characters, covered in “stitches,” AND it's flanked by Jack and Sally “toasting mugs.” (I heart toasting mugs.)
We were stressing about our Save the Dates until my partner came up with this amazing idea. It was so much fun looking for the perfect comic together — it turned stressballs into amazeballs!
Speaking of amazeballs, here's a sneak peek of Jenni and Karen getting ready for their wedding. I can't wait to see how their vastly different styles came together for the wedding! Keep the pictures coming, friends!
