Reporting Leigh Ann Adam
Lauren Adkins, a Las Vegas artist, has taken some criticism as of late for her decision to marry an Edward Cullen cardboard cutout. Only in Vegas.
Las Vegas Weekly is reporting that Adkins, an MFA student at UNLV, is marrying her cardboard hunk as part of her thesis project.
Her project is designed to explore gender, fantasy, and expectations Hollywood places on relationships.
The ceremony will take place in January at the Viva Las Vegas wedding chapel.
The whole thing was made possible by online contributions.
“I have to say that I’m already satisfied,” Adkins said about the project. “I’m hoping to get some critical thought process going.”
