Wedding Week: Celebration Vs Maria Clapsis

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

With the reveal of the 3″ pieces from the Celebration set, we got to see the Bride and Groom that Stephen Miller hinted to back on February 1st. This however, is not the first time Vinylmation have been to a wedding. This week we will take a look at various version of the Vinylmation Wedding theme that we have seen hidden on the internet.

First up, a quick reminder of the Celebrations Bride and Groom.

An interesting pair of vinyl. The tux looks okay, reminiscent of the business suit from the Occupations set. (Although I liked Kermit 55th’s tux better, it had bling!) The wedding dress however seems a little plain, especially when you compare it to this:

This is Maria Clapsis’ Bride and Groom. A figure she had sitting on her desk at Disney, and a pic that has been seen in lots of places around the internet. This is a set she made for a college friend who was getting married. It is amazing! All the detail work is perfect, from the top hat to the tiara. I think Disney should convince Maria to make more of these, and sell them at a high price as part of the wedding packages they have at the parks. Amazing stuff Maria, keep up the good work.

All week we will have wedding themed posts (in addition to our regular news posts, so don’t worry about missing any news this week). Tomorrow we talk about another custom wedding piece that I recently saw online.
