I’m certain you’ve heard of her before, we even wrote an article about her. I’m talking about the famous Pokémon-loving nerd girl Pika’Belle’Chu — who happens to be in the Guinness Book of World Records for her massive collection of Pokémon merchandise, and a Pikachu-designed VW Bug.
So, why am I bringing her up again? Well, the lovely Pika’Belle’Chu is now engaged to, get this, a Raichu cosplayer.
According to Geekologie.com,
When Chris Herbert decided to pop the question to his girlfriend of three years, Belle Starenchak, he picked the most romantic place he could think of: Anime Weekend Atlanta, with both dressed as Pokemon. It … kind of makes sense for them.
Belle, or “PikaBelleChu,” is featured in the Guinness Book of World Records: Gamer Edition… and Herbert met her by staging a Pokemon auction. So while we might be tempted to laugh, it would seem that the pursuit of ‘em all is a major component of this couple’s lives.
Here’s a video of that magical moment where Edward Chris proposed to Bella Belle.
