A couple of you may remember a thread I created a few months ago where I was stuck between two cake toppers – the Geese or the Hedgehogs?
After leaving it for a while and spending some time taking care of other things, I suddenly realised our date’s just around the corner and had to make a decision. So I chose this instead:
My fiance was an absolute Batman freak when he was a kid – he wore the mask and cape all the time and when he wasn’t home, he’d wear it to school and his teachers faced the unfortunate challenge of getting him to take it off every day. His best friend (who is now one of our groomsmen) used to dress up as Robin and there are so many photos of them as children playing with their little capes and masks on!
I haven’t showed him this, nor will I tell him about it… so hopefully he is pleasantly surprised (he’s generally not one for “cute” things, but hopefully the Batman factor will impress him enough!).
Just made the payment to the Etsy seller… Phew. One more thing off the list 🙂

@ksus07: So he’s an awesome caped-crusader, and you’re just…a bride? NO WAY. Get a cool outfit for yours, too.

@peachacid: My original idea was to get a Catwoman mask and ears (as I did dress up as her once for a costume party), but I decided it against it. Obviously if I’d dressed up as Catwoman all the time when I was a small child I probably would have kept it, but in the end, Batman means more to him than Catwoman means to me!
I find more humour in the stark contrast between ‘Batman’ and ‘bride’ too, haha. Besides… he’s the fun awesome one and I’m the sensible goody-gumdrops one, so it reflects us as a couple quite accurately 😛

@ksus07: I think the best part about this topper is that he has no idea about it! Go batman!!!!

@Asichka: Hahaha yeah I think so too! The funny thing is that he knows I’m keeping it as a surprise (he’s always been one to guess presents at birthdays and Christmas, etc. and is pretty good at it) and he keeps asking me about it 😛
Yesterday he wouldn’t leave me alone, but all his guesses were making me laugh – “Aww it’s not one of those crap ones where the bride’s dragging me away, is it?” Haha. He really hates those classic toppers (apparently even the funny ones) so hopefully I’m on the right track!
“It’d better not be something stupid like two losery birds or our initials or some shit….”
Ah. The fact he has such a strong opinion on cake toppers, let alone an opinion on them at all makes me crack up.
Oh and I received a picture of my custom order, which I should receive soon!:
