Superhero Wedding Forces Guests to Cosplay



Weddings can be stuffy, but when the guests are all dressed as comic book heroes and villains it takes the edge off.

Sharon and Neil Vaughan love cosplay so much they decided to expose their secret identities and get married as Wonder Woman and Batman instead of as regular Joes. The UK couple wanted all of their guests to get in on the action too, which made for one giant superhero wedding.

"I have always wanted to be Batman, ever since I was a little boy, and Sharon said she had always wanted to be Wonder Woman," Neil told the Daily Mail [http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1299383/I-Wonder-Woman-Batman-Couple-marry-dressed-superheroes.html]. The Vaughans spent a total of around $450 on their outfits, which is less than the typical wedding dress alone can sometimes cost. The savings were reflected throughout the wedding's expenditures, with Sharon revealing: "Our wedding was absolutely amazing and it cost us less than some couples would spend on just the dress."

The VIPs of the wedding complimented the groom, with Robin as best man and the Joker as master of ceremonies. Sharon made her entrance to the Kick-Ass [http://www.amazon.com/Wonder-Woman-Collection-Lynda-Carter/dp/B000X07SQ6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1280940393&sr=8-1]. The pink Power Ranger was also spotted, as was a mini-Iron Man. Though he's not a superhero, the wedding still allowed Yoda to attend.

Sharon called her wedding a "great day" and Neil says the couple just "wanted to have a fun day with our friends." I think this sounds much better than any traditional wedding, though I wonder if some of the guests took the opportunity to cosplay too far. Let's hope the ceremony wasn't interrupted by too many cries of: "Hulk... SMASH!!"

Unsurprisingly, some of the Daily Mail commenters insult the couple and their guests.

Personally, I think it's great that two people can do something like that on their wedding day. If it makes them happy and the day memorable, then they can dress like any superheroes they want.

This is how to really have a wedding. Realising its not all about big dresses and fancy ballrooms but about a fun and meaning ceremony / day. I bet the guests had a blast, esp those kids who didnt have to be in suits all day! This would have been a blast to go to.

I would totally cheat and cosplay as Jimmy Olsen.

"What's that? I'm not a superhero? But I'm Superman's pal."

I find it sad that the words "Affordable and enjoyable wedding" sound so odd to me.

Yoda isn`t that tall. This reminded me of my favourite Onion article:

It sure sounds nice to have an affordable and different kind of wedding, but somehow i doubt that it'd have that same romantic touch that i enjoy so much... (Call me whatever you want, i dont't care)
