My Big Fat Geek Wedding - Food and Lembas Bread Favor Tutorial

I believe that the food you serve at a wedding is integral to the overall theme. Can you imagine if we served sushi or snow cones at our big day? Love both of those things but not for a medieval affair. We took most of our food inspiration from the ren faire. Turkey legs were a given in addition to honey mead and earthy veggies. I was also adamant about guests drinking from goblets and tankards. Though I am not a fan of pie we also included some fruit pies because that seemed very "Hobbit-Like" and because other people like pie (fruit should never be warm imo, blech).

Our menus were etched into pieces of wood, rustic no?

Geek Chic Perfume and Scents - Black Phoenix Alchemy Laboratory GIVEAWAY

Ever wanted to harness the scents of The Last Unicorn, or HP Lovecraft, or Labyrinth? No? Well you SHOULD and you CAN! Thanks to the crew over at Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, all your geek favorites are now harnessed in perfume form. Their team was gracious enough to send me a sample pack of the RPG Series which included rogue, halfling, dwarven ale, mana, and others. Need the perfect scent to rock at your DnD match? Look no further!

Sample Packs, I've always wanted to smell like a dwarf! P.S. It smells much more delicious than it sounds. HAHA.

Full vials (I feel so fancy using that word) look something like this. I love the custom artwork. These look like legitimate alchemy potions to me. The scents come in a 5ml full size or a sample size. This way you can try a couple without breaking the bank. I feel like perfume is such a personal thing and I like the option of trying a couple before committing to a full size.

Want to win your own RPG pack of scents? The items in the above picture could be yours! Enter your information in the widget below for a chance! You can earn extra entries for following Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Geeky Glamorous social networks. Contest open to United States residents only. Entries accepted until April 16th, 2014.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Pre-Screening Event

Thanks to the team over at Skype, I was invited to a pre-screening of Captain America: The Winter Soldier! Accompanied by my boos Michelle and Yume we headed out to the Arclight Theater in Hollywood for an evening of abs, patriotism, and fun.
All the Marvel clothing I own is Spider-Man themed, so I opted to dress 'murrica themed instead.

The film was amazing, like Iron Man 1 good. It really surprised me. The trailer lead me to believe it was just another "action flik" but it's super well written. The banter between the characters was great and the action sequences literally made me nervous. Michelle said I was acting like an old lady, haha rude. Make time in your schedule to see this film friends, you won't regret it!

The response J and I have received from all you is amazing, we're so happy that so many of you liked the show and our special day! I know some of you international readers haven't been able to view the episode but not to worry I'm doing a play-by-play of all the aspects of the wedding here on the blog! Of course if we do end up finding a video available online I can assure you I'll be posting it here!

I'll be breaking down the wedding in multiple blog posts so if you don't see something you want specific details on, check back! Or, make sure you leave me a comment in this post so I can know to cover it. Thanks!

It is not easy to find a castle in Los Angeles. We just don't have old architecture. If there are castles they are usually accompanied by a miniature golf course and/or go-karts...hah. So when we stumbled across Lobo Castle, Julian and I were ecstatic. LOOK AT IT.
