Just That Zombie Girl

a bit of advice?

Bride. Not a title I ever expected I'd carry since most of my titles keep me bound to work and odd research projects that make people sigh when I force them into so-called polite conversation. Still, the kind of love that made a man move 700 miles to live with me is the kind of love that makes me willing to take his last name.

The wedding is a weekend in his hometown with his ex-girlfriend-now-best-friend as my maid of honor. The theme, of course, is "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." Since I'd sooner shop for a coffin than a bridal gown, we're shopping for Hawaiian shirts and aviator sunglasses. Could you expect anything less from a couple who celebrated their engagement by getting matching Gonzo symbol tattoos? (Not that anyone gets it in this suburban sprawl prison we're stuck in for another year.)

But I'm a woman with mostly male (or lesbian) friends and taste that leans far more toward his button-down shirts with a pair of jeans than anything prissy or frilly. Who has the time, man? Shouldn't a writer care more about the topic at hand than whether her shoes match her bag?

I'd like to think our idea is original, that we're having the first "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" theme/Good Doctor tribute wedding in the world, but I'm not dumb -- our idea is a good one but surely one that's come to other fans/followers of The Good Doctor.

So, if any of you have, or have thought of, any ideas beyond the obvious, I'm open to suggestions. I don't know if Hunter had a favorite flower, but if he did and anyone knows it, I'd like to have it as part of my bouquet (since my idea of a bouquet of flyswatters has been vetoed). Also, if anyone knows where to get a replica of the Hawaiian shirt Duke is wearing in the movie poster, I'd really appreciate the link. After all, if a thing's worth doing, it's worth doing right.
