Lauren Adkins is the new wife of Robert Pattinson…uhmm, just the cardboard cutout Robert Pattinson.
Complete with wedding dress, wedding ring and a ceremony attended by 50 guests at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, the 25-year old Las Vegas native decided to marry her stand-in boyfriend she bought for $20 at a record shop after becoming obsessed with Pattinson’s “Twilight” character, Edward Cullen.
According to MTV.com, the wedding cost her $3,200.
Well, before you freaked out with her crazy idea, here’s something you should know. The wedding is part of her thesis project at University of Nevada Las Vegas where she claims she’s investigating how pop culture fantasies and celebrity obsessions cross over into our everyday lives and give us twisted expectations of love. She started planning the project two years ago, and raised over $1,200 for it on IndieGogo.
Pretty cool, huh? What do you think? Share us your thoughts below.
