Woman Plans to Marry Edward Cullen Cardboard Cutout

I have heard of crazy things happening but this bit of crazy takes the cake. Blastr reports that a woman named Lauren Adkins wants to marry a cardboard cut-out of Edward Cullen from The Twilight Saga. This plan has gone a bit farther than just whimsical wishes, the woman has created an IndiGoGo page to raise money to fulfill her wish.  

Here is what Adkins had to say:

This work focuses on the female escapist fantasy in its most popular forms-primarily finding "true love"-and the extent to which it seeps into our real lives. I've looked at this fantasy primarily through a pop cultural lens; that is I've used film & television's representations of the love story and female characters in general in an attempt to understand my own expectations of romantic love. Because of personal attachment to and experience with this fantasy or quest, which took a particularly strong hold of me when I discovered the intensely popular Twilight Saga, my thesis exhibition will touch on romantic expectation primarily through the main love interest, Edward Cullen.

The money she has raised will help to fund everything from a wedding dress, rings, minister fees and dinner for the bride and groom. I am actually at a loss for words, and will throw it to you, my fellow Tyrants, in the comments below.
