We are trying to work some nerdy details into our wedding and I am searching for other people who have maybe done something similar to point me in the right direction.
We are looking to put the ship from Firefly on top of our cake but I haven’t had a lot of luck in finding one.
Also, has anyone ever made a clap trap replica (character from the borderlands video game series)? We are thinking of making one for our card box.

This will be my frist post, but I love both Borderlands and Firefly, so it seemed like a good one to respond to.
ThinkGeek has this Serenity replica which is ~8″ long, so I’m not sure how well it would fit on a cake (it’s also $100):
Also, if you don’t want to make a claptrap, you can always just buy a Borderlands loot chest (also $100) and use it for cards:
And then use some of the small claptrap figures for decoration (yellow and blue claptraps can be found on eBay, but they are expensive, and Gearbox is going to be making a Jakobs themed claptrap this summer).
Also, I would check Amazon b/c frequently you can find stuff ThinkGeek sells for less money (and free shipping) on Amazon.
Hope this helps.

@littlemisst08: Thanks! I’m pretty excited for the little details (even if only a few guests get it lol) Idk if you play Skyrim but I’ll be walking down the aisle to a group of musicians playing a clip from the song Ancient Stones from the game. Also, the grooms cake will be the Tardis from Doctor Who! 49 day left and getting really excited!
