The cake topper

"Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today..."

"Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today..."

OK, I’m finally getting these posted. The wedding was Saturday, worked Sunday and today was hectic as well.

In any event, the idea came to me after finding a blister of Shredders for 50% off. Wade, the groom, plays Legion. Haley, the bride, plays Circle. There’s a bit of a height difference so a Shredder and Mannikin made sense. The couple liked the idea too.

Staggs suggested using the Covenant, and I wanted to go with Severius as the officiant. Dibz had a spare Sevvy and the plan was in place.

But in typical fashion, I waited until the very end to get everything done. True be told, I’m surprised at how well it came off. I’ll let my readers be the judge of that, however.

Yes, I used a very fine pen for this. And practiced the writing several times.

It was a fun little piece to make. It would have been nice if I had gotten the bowtie to work on the Shredder, but in the end it all worked out. Funny thing is, aside from the basing, Wade could use that Shredder with the rest of his Legion with no trouble.
