Maergery’s only in three of the pictures. Can’t you just feel the love?

Guy Proposes to His Girlfriend With Awesome Video Game He Helped Develop [VIDEO]

In super adorable things that make our hearts melt, an artist named Robert Fink worked with friends to develop a pretty involved game called Knight Man in order to propose to his then-girlfriend Angel. He filmed her as she played it (clearly much to her confusion) to document the occasion. The video is a little long, but it’s worth it to see her reaction when she realizes what’s happening. Congrats to the happy couple – and if you want to play the game, it’s here on Fink’s website!

An Engagement Ring Fit For A Kick-Ass Space Princess

Victoria, aka ScruffyRebel, from Syfy’s Heroes of Cosplay got a fantastic moment captured on film during the finale. Her boyfriend Jinyo proposed while in Star Wars cosplay, with a Leia-inspired ring, and with an assist from the one and only Peter Mayhew. Just one thing, Victoria was wearing a Star Trek uniform. Awkward! Not really, but I had to say it. Because of the show, they couple had to keep the news under wraps for six months. I can’t even imagine. The ring was created by Paul Michael Design, who you may remember from their past geek-related work on the Adventure Time and R2-D2 engagement rings.

This Custom Adventure Time Engagement Ring Should Technically Fit Anyone’s Finger

Because it’s Jake.

Comic creator Josh Adams (Doctor Who ongoing, Batman Odyssey) saw Paul Bierker’s R2-D2 ring we posted on The Mary Sue a while back and decided he needed to propose to his girlfriend Saori with an equally geeky engagement ring. Adams contacted Bierker with his idea – Jake taking the shape of a ring – and he made it a reality. We’re very happy to know we were at least in some way responsible for this happening. Hit the jump to see the finished product on Saori’s finger.

Couple Announces Engagement and Wedding With Amazing Parody Movie and TV Posters

Joshua Watson and his then-fiancée Rachel Van Der Merwe joined forces with photographer Jordan Nakamura to re-create posters of some of the couple’s favorite movies and TV shows to celebrate the pair’s nuptials. The results, as you can see, are really well done, to the point that some of the altered posters even trick Google image search.

Any future husband of mine has to be willing to do this, or the wedding’s off.

If You Thought Lord of the Rings Was an Epic Journey, Wait Until You Watch This Nerdy Scavenger Hunt Proposal

This may be the sweetest, most involved geek proposal I’ve ever seen. Luke Plastow put together a Lord of the Rings themed scavenger hunt for his girlfriend on Christmas Day last year with the intent of asking her to marry him at the end. He wrote to us to say, “She is a huge Tolkein fan and it seemed right that if I was going to give her a ring it should be LOTR themed. The ring itself is Palladium, with a stone the same colour as Sauron’s eye. The setting for the stone is the same shape as Isengard. Inside the ring is an inscription in Black Speech saying ‘One ring to rule them all.’ ”

Luke, if you weren’t already taken…oh wait, you said your fiancé reads our site…best of luck in your lifelong fellowship!
