Our “I-Can’t-Believe-It’s-Not-A-Guestbook!”

When we first thought of guestbooks, we knew we wanted something slightly more unconventional than the little white book for strictly signatures. Even the polaroid guestbook didn’t feel right for us. We wanted something that wouldn’t just collect dust on a bookshelf, unopened and can’t always be enjoyed. 

We were at our favourite store, The Magic Pony when Mr. Zombie came up with a genius idea. 

“We should have a gigantic platform blank toy for our guestbook instead!” 

A platform blank toy is a vinyl figure that is customizable. Artists can paint it, write on it, put sculpey on it and pretty much do whatever they please. Customizing blank toys is one of our favourite pass-times so the idea was perfect. It would totally fit right into our giant toy collection!

roomUm… we might have to move some toys to make space, but it’ll fit.

Our eyes were originally set on buying a Mega Munny.

The Mega Munny is the most popular of the platforms and is quite gigantic. Instead, we went with something more fun and more personal.

** This one is an example of an already customized ‘Gwin. I just loved the zombies 🙂

The Mega ‘Gwin was created by two friends of ours from California. Mr. Zombie does some video work for them for their weekly toy podcast. They are also a super geeky couple just like us and we really wanted to be able to showcase some of their awesome work in our wedding. They managed to secure a Mega ‘Gwin for us and we couldn’t be more stoked to have this big guy as our guestbook… err.. guestgwin. 

All we need to do is leave a few Sharpies and let the guests write/doodle anything they please! Neat, huh?

    haha what’s shown above is only maybe a quarter of our collection. there’s a whole different shelf full of dunnys and a whole bunch of other ones displayed about the house.

    The Gwins are really cool. I made a custom one for Miss Penguin that matched her wedding invites.

    Aw! The Gwins are so cute and this is an awesome idea! Someone bought us a guest book and I completely forgot to put it out at our wedding, but with something this cool, you’ve got to use it! 🙂

  4. That is bad ass! 🙂 Awesome idea, dudes!!
