Fantastical Friday: Handfasting Recap

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Well, it finally happened. Our handfasting went rather well, the actual ceremony was pretty simple & not very long. Given that I went on & on about this event, I thought you all might enjoy some of the video that was captured, as you will be able to clearly tell, we can be pretty silly. Seems we had some sound issues when live streaming to facebook & the teenager I put in charge of my phone didn’t finalize the one she captured, so it remains silent. She was also a terrible camera person & the phone flips many, many times, enough to make you dizzy. Needless to say, I’m not sharing that video, if you’re interested it is on my personal facebook page (my name is on my about page & I am totally findable on fb with it). I captured my sister’s stream (that was an adventure, trying to get fb to let me download it, lol), my man did a few audio edits on the longer handfasting video so you can actually hear him talking, though it was deemed unnecessary with the comical cake video as the best part of the joke is seen clearly through his expression & body language. The video quality isn’t super high, so you can’t really tell that my earrings are dangling spiders, or that there is a spider dangling from the web necklace I’m wearing, still all in all I think it turned out pretty well. I’m also including a few stills pulled from the vids, not that you can see everything clearly, but still, gives me an image to feature. 😉 I hope you’re all having a blessed day! ❤

Fantastical Friday: Costume Reveal

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Well, this is a long time in coming, we’ve had these costumes for months now. We decided, a while back, to go with a theme for both of our costumes & we considered several ideas along those lines. In the end we decided to go with the sorcerer/sorceress thing. Back when we were making these selections I was briefly an affiliate with Halloweencostumes.com, who despite inviting me into their program dropped me in about a week, so that’s where we did our shopping. I’ve seen my robes on many different sites so if you like it, you can find it almost anywhere, lol. If all goes as planned for the handfasting it will be live streamed on facebook from my personal page (if you look at my about page, my name is there, so I am findable), but you don’t have to follow me to see it, should you want to watch, as the vid will be reshared here, likely next Friday. With today’s post I didn’t find the names or prices of the items pictured, as every site out there varies, but we did get ours from the aforementioned site so the pic gives credit to them. 😉 As a side note, we never had any intention of going with the concept ridiculous beard shown in the shop pic of my man’s robes, lol.

Fantastical Friday: Goth Wedding Decor

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

t’s natural that I would continue to muse on this topic, lol. Some of these beautiful pieces, from Amazon, I will not be able to order in time, with so much being funneled into the big day & the remodel of the room that is to be ours. These are so great that I will likely have to make some later orders for various reasons. I especially love the little wooden coffins & think it might be fun to paint them, perhaps using them as pencil boxes & cute gifts (okay, you probably already knew I was weird, LOL). The candle stand, candelabra & candlesticks are also striking my fancy a LOT so they are also among my wishlist. I think I will have to get one of those lanterns, it’s just plain awesome & in my colors too. So here’s a list of things that would be amazing to have for a goth wedding.

Goth Wedding Decor1) Decorative GREY GRAY Rose Gothic Goth Wedding Flower Halloween Decoration Décor ($1.99)
2) Purple Moroccan Candle Lantern ($12.50)
3) 13 All Black Wooden Rose Flowers ($12.99)
4) Midnight Rose Black & Red Floral Stem Large, Halloween, Goth ($13.19)
5) Accoutrements Lucky Skull Porcelain Teapot ($19.01)
6) Medieval Triple Candle Stand By Little Red Crane ($21.23)
7) Package of 6 – Decorative Unfinished Wood Funeral Coffins For Halloween Parties, Goth and Decoration ($23.98)
8) VERDUGO GIFT Midnight Elegance Candelabra ($28.15)
9) Design Toscano Skullduggery Skull and Bones Sculptural Candlesticks, Set of 2 ($42.83)

The Precious……

Okay, if you’ve been following me for a bit now you know that I am a nerd & the opportunity for a one ring joke was completely irresistible, lol. So what I’ve done for this post is gather 9 selections from 4 different places across the web, that’s 9 each because I realize what I said was ambiguous. What one ring captures our attention so much? Well, that would be an engagement ring! 😛 Most of the selections I have gathered are on the “cheap” end, but they are nonetheless stunning. Let’s face it, very few people in the world are made of money & for a relationship to be lasting it is perhaps for the best that you not spend the rest of your lives & those of your children paying for a $100,000+ ring. Some of the shops I found engagement rings at might just surprise you.

Walmart, yeah, I know, not an expected location to find beautiful engagement rings, but you would be surprised at their amazing selection.

Walmart Engagement 1) Miabella 1/4 Carat T.G.W. Created White Sapphire and Diamond-Accent Engagement Ring in Sterling Silver ($49)
2) 1/3 CT TGW Created White Sapphire and Diamond-Accent Engagement Ring in Sterling Silver ($49)

5) Miabella 1 Carat T.G.W. Princess-Cut Created White Sapphire 10kt White Gold Solitaire Engagement Ring ($159)
6) 1-1/3 Carat T.G.W. Created White Sapphire and Diamond-Accent 10kt White Gold Three-Stone Engagement Ring ($189)
7) 1 Carat T.G.W. Created White Sapphire and Diamond-Accent 10kt White Gold Cross-Over Engagement Ring ($199)

9) 1/2 Carat T.W. Three-Stone Diamond Engagement Ring in 10kt White Gold ($449)

Equally amazing is the array of beautiful engagement treasures that can be found at Target, which is another place that might be a little unexpected to find such things.

Target Engagement 1) Sterling Silver Cubic Zirconia Engagement Ring ($16.99)
2) Tressa Collection Sterling Silver Round Cut Bridal Cubic Zirconia Ring ($22.99)
3) 5 3/5 CT.T.W. Octagon Cubic Zirconia 4 prong Set Engagement Ring in Sterling Silver ($39.99)

9) 1 1/4 CT. White Topaz and 0.06 CT. Diamond 3-Prong Engagement Ring in 10k White Gold ($249.99)

Billy the Tree specializes in jewelry of a diverse nature, so it is in no way shocking that they have some gorgeous engagement rings.

2) 0.34ctw Blue Diamond Bridal Ring 925 Sterling Silver ($224.95)

8) 0.40ctw Diamond Round Center Bridal Ring 14K White Gold ($719.95)
9) 0.33ctw Diamond Round Center Bridal Ring 14K White Gold ($758.95)

And finally we are to Amazon.com which has pretty much everything. You might ask why the ones I’m listing from this shop don’t have the same range of prices. Well, let me tell you, I went through 300+ pages sorted from low to high & never saw a $100 ring. After a bit I thought I would go backward & resorted from high to low, 300+ pages later I was nowhere near $1,000. In the end I went with some truly marvelous pieces that would never break the bank (so many freaking shops that use the site have clearance so affordable is the order of the day).

Amazon Engagement 1) Simplicity Engagement Ring ($15.99)
2) Lab Grown Vintage Style 1.00 Carat Crown White Sapphire Wedding Engagement Ring ($16.99)
3) Classic Sterling Silver Engagement Ring w/Oval Brilliant White Czs ($20.99)
4) J Goodin Brilliant Engagement Ring ($21.00)
5) Amethyst Ring Zircone Female Engagement 925 Sterling Rings for Women with Purple Stones Anillo Bague Femme Ulove J325 ($30)
6) Sterling Silver Oval Lab Opal Engagement Ring ($36.99)
7) Sterling Silver Bridal Cathedral Engagement Ring ($41.71)
8) Ayyara Gem ring 925 Sterling Silver Elegant Bride Wedding Ring ($50)
9) Ayyara Gem PT950 D0.6CT Swiss Engagement Wedding Accessories Rings ($62)
