So, we ended up choosing cake topper llamas based on the results of the poll. (Also, check out the comments on that post for an interesting side-reason that helped with the decison.)
The llamas came and they were adorable.
That shot looks like a hipster album cover. You can’t see it from that angle, but there was a slight problem. Both llamas faced left!
The effect was not very romantic. The llama on the left was just kind of staring creepily at the one on the right. They look like they should have The Police as their wedding band. Or maybe they’re just line dancing. Either way, something had to change.
We decided to make a slight adjustment to one of the llamas. It wasn’t pretty. In fact, it involved holding a llama head in boiling water and then brutally twisting his neck with pliers. But in the end, everyone came out ok. The llama on the right (we’ve decided it will be the the Daniel-llama, since he’s a little taller now after having his neck adjusted) looks downright proud, just like a llama should.
They seem happy now…but what they don’t know is that there’s still a hot glue gun coming for them sometime in the near future. Be afraid…be very afraid!
