An exceptionally cool/nerdy garter

One day a brilliant idea came to me.

That I could have someone on www.etsy.com make me a garter, and that it could be anything I wanted.

What to want. What to want. To me, the garter is for the boys. Sure, it needs to be pretty and lacy enough for my fancy, but at the end of the day, that baby is going flying out of the fiance’s hands.

And then it dawned on me.

A nerd garter.

I’ve always wanted one.

What? Ok, maybe not.

But c’mon. 1 in 3 single guys at this wedding is going to be a tabletop gamer. So, why not play it up.

These guys play a specific game – Legends of the Five Rings. I don’t even try to understand it all at all.  Ok, I’ve tried to play once but it was just to give this kid honor points for teaching me and it went right over my head. All I really know is there are clans, and the fiance is in a clan that is called Scorpion. So I thought, I need to get a Scorpion clan garter.

I put a bid out on Etsy and this fabulously creative seller came to my rescue – and true to her name – Greta’s Pretty Things – she not only made me a scorpion garter, but she made it pretty.

The Scorpion clan is reflected in the little charm.

So it might clash with my new shoes a little. I don’t care. I think it’s very pretty and kind of fun.

I’m just afraid that when the fiance sees it, he’ll be so excited about having his clan on a garter that he won’t want to toss it.

Oh well.
