Geeky Wedding Wednesday: HARRY POTTER

Welcome to Geeky Wedding Wednesday! Be here the first Wednesday of every month to learn how to geek out your wedding! This week, Harry Potter! Invitations Bring joy to the 11-year-old in all your guests by sending out invitations in the likeness of Hogwarts letters. Aged parchment, calligraphy and wax seals will do the trick. And instead of using that weird tissue paper thing, throw in some owl feathers so they’ll know who really delivered their invite. Maybe something like this from bellybeancards on Etsy. Wardrobe Probably the most iconic dress in the series is Hermione’s Yule Ball gown...

Geeky Wedding Wednesday: CLASSIC MICKEY

Welcome to Geeky Wedding Wednesday! Be here the first Wednesday of every month to learn how to geek out your wedding! This week, Classic Mickey! Invitations Subtlety is pretty key here since you’re dealing with cartoons. It’s easy to throw Mickey and friends onto some cardstock and call it a day, but you’ll likely end up with something that looks more like a child’s birthday party invite than a wedding invitation. I love the Mickey and Minnie kissing silhouettes that are featured on this invite: Wedsclusive on Etsy It’s clear to see what the theme is, but still reads...

Geeky Wedding Wednesday: DOCTOR WHO

Welcome to Geeky Wedding Wednesday! Be here the first Wednesday of every month to learn how to geek out your wedding! This week, Doctor Who! ***Special note to help your guests*** When I was planning my wedding, my future FIL (father-in-law) advised me to make a fairly detailed wedding program to help our guests understand our super nerdy wedding. He felt like some of our guests might catch things here and there but it was unlikely that they would know everything we were referencing. I took the time to put together a program (it was actually a Playbill) with...

JOHN HURT Passes Away at 77

Our Doctor, our wandmaker, our dragon passed away today at age 77. John Hurt had been battling cancer and intestinal problems, but was cleared by his doctors just two years ago. When asked how he felt about death after receiving the good news, he was quoted saying, “I can’t say I worry about mortality, but it’s impossible to get to my age and not have a little contemplation of it. We’re all just passing time, and occupy our chair very briefly.” He was always optimistic about his treatments and continued to work as often and as long as his doctors...

Fantastic Beasts Are Real and Here’s Where to Find Them!

That’s right! Scientists are helping us Potterheads find some pretty magical creatures IRL. Most recently, a new species of crab has been discovered living in deep, dark coral graveyards in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Guam. Biologists have named the crab Harryplax severus, a nod to two of J.K. Rowling’s beloved characters, Harry Potter and Severus Snape. It also happens that the initial research for this discovery was by a man named Harry Conley. The two biologists, Jose Mendoza and Peter Ng, who led the study which discovered the new species of crab inherited his research and...

Russian Hackers Are Trying to Ruin Sherlock!

Russia has been a hot topic lately in the political headlines in the U.S., but thanks to some nerdy hackers the country is infiltrating the Sherlock fandom, too. The fourth season of Sherlock will be coming to a close tomorrow night with a third episode that could also mark a series finale as well. “The Final Problem” is set to air on Sunday, 1/15 at 7/6c. However, a few days ago, the British Film Institute in the UK held a preview screening of the much-anticipated episode for over 400 fans. Almost immediately after the screening, S4E3 was leaked online....

Emma Watson or Justin Bieber? Disney’s New Belle Doll Gets Mixed Reviews

With every great Disney movie comes loads of merchandise and the upcoming live action version of Beauty and the Beast is no different. We still have a couple of months to go before the big premiere but in anticipation of the release, Disney has come out with several toys based on the characters in their new film. While the animated character version of similar toys have been around for years, the newer incarnations of say, Funko Pop dolls, have been heavily influenced by the most updated interpretation. So, something like this: There are obvious differences, of course, but the essence of...

EW Readers: Settlers of Catan is NOT Monopoly!

The board game community has been kicked in the gut by a single phrase, “think Monopoly.” Awards season kicked off last night with the Golden Globes and you can be sure those VIP after parties were on point.  But while probably all of Hollywood was dancing the night away, one of my favorite celebrity couples, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, did just what I would do: GAME NIGHT! Kristen Bell shared an adorable photo on her Instagram of the pair setting up another one of my favorites, Settlers of Catan. The Golden Globe Awards Twitter account even posted a little...

Don’t Blink! Just eat this DOCTOR WHO Weeping Angel pancake

Amazing pancake artists, Dr. Dan and Hank of YouTube’s Dancakes, are trying to kill us. Or at least zap us back in time and space. Their latest video shows a time-lapse of the creation of a weeping angel pancake. Using colored batter and a hot griddle, these two Dancake dudes are able to make some pretty whimsical designs. They’ve also drawn out all 13 Doctors including 8.5, a.k.a The War Doctor, and everyone’s favorite Tardis just to name a few. Each design is drawn up backward on the griddle and then flipped over to reveal the completed image. They use...
