  1. Emerald City Comicon: Proposals Are Magic

    A proposal that would melt the heart of every pony.

    If you go to enough conventions, they all start to blur together. But sometimes, something special happens that makes one particular convention stand out. For me, that moment was a guy using My Little Pony-inspired art to express his feelings to his lady love at Emerald City Comicon.

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

    My Precious!

    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! Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  12. An Engagement Ring Fit For A Kick-Ass Space Princess

    May The Force Be With You

    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.

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

    Oh Mah Glob Guys

    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.

    When it came time for Redditor Malcolm Collins, aka SirTechnocracy, to propose to his girlfriend Simone Smith, he decided to do something a little… different.

    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.

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

    My Precious!

    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 of luck in your lifelong fellowship!

  19. It’s Easy To Save The Date With A Back to the Future Wedding Photoshoot

    I See What They Did There

    Photographer Eric Cash of Shift-4 Photography made one couple's Back to the Future dreams come true with a fabulous "Save the Date" shoot. Jarrett and Abbie enlisted an Atlanta based Delorean owner to complete their already awesome look. We also adore Abbie for going the less obvious route. "Since I’m currently in medical school, I thought it much more appropriate to dress up as Doc instead of Jennifer," she said. Let's just hope their kids don't turn out to be you-know-whats.
