Nerdy Find of the Day: Geeky Cocktail Dresses!

If you’re a fan of campy, amazing horror movies, you’ll love The Ash Dress, and probably everything else in Nerd Alert Designs‘ store on Etsy. Crissy, the owner of the store, makes gorgeous nerdy dresses for fans of all different beloved classics, from Star Wars to X-men to Doctor Who. Says Crissy of Nerd Alert Designs:

“Welcome to nerd alert designs- where nerdy meets flirty!
Our goal is to design and create vintage inspired versions of your favorite game, comic, anime, cartoon and movie characters.
Several of our garments are made from recycled or reclaimed fabrics such as sheets, curtains or other former garments.
Other costumes have a ‘day-to-night’ feature, where everything that makes it a ‘costume,’ be it a cape, logo, boots or what have you, is completely removable, leaving you with an adorable and functional dress!”

Nerdy Find of the Day: Tiniest Turrets!

Redditor Pheadlessg just shared these fantastic turret cake toppers!

The wedding is themed around our shared love of books (each table at the reception is themed around a different genre) but I wanted something that reflected my passions as well – I eventually talked my fiancé into letting me have one gaming reference and we settled on these. I spent a couple of hours making them on Friday night.

Pheadlessg ordered the turrets from Think Geek, and added the decorations – the veil is silk and a pre-made flower, and the hat and bow-tie are made out of foam. They’re different! (That’s a turret joke.)

Congrats on the awesome cake toppers, and thanks for sharing! Hopefully there’s really a cake for them to go on top of.

Nerdy Find of the Day: Joker’s Revenge…on a cake!

This may not be the newest nerdy wedding cake to hit the net, but it’s so cool that I couldn’t not share it. City Cakes NY created this amazing wedding cake around the release of The Dark Knight Rises, and the details are awesome, from the screen-accurate joker cards on and around the cake to the painted-on Joker faces on the cake topper. This cake shows serious dedication to a theme, and I applaud the bakery and the couple who commissioned it.

Nerdy Find of the Day: Floppy Disk Save the Dates

ImbueYouIDo on Etsy has some really unique handmade save the dates and invitations, but these floppy disks are my favorite! All of their work is gorgeous but these would be the perfect way to tell everyone that your wedding might be a little nerdier than normal. The labels are available in a variety of colors, and they offer a wide range of amounts, from 25 all the way up to 225.

If you want a different design on your labels, it looks like ImbueYouIDo offers a lot of customization options, and these could probably also by DIY-ed fairly easily if you’re good with typography and spray adhesive. Quick, find that old box full of floppys!

Nerdy Find of the Day: Badass Boutonnieres

Ben & Mimi’s wedding (captured by Jagger Photography) had a ton of DIY elements, but the coolest by far were the boutonnieres – Mimi asked the groomsmen who their favorite superheros were, and found action figures to replace their boutonnieres! Check out the rest of the post for more photos… Continue reading
