Wow Mari seems to like flying back and forth to Japan quite frequently. Wasn't she just in LA doing a show at Benihana or something?

So how was the all-night Macross Night? I didnt go in expecting all that much but goddamn it ROCKED!

Save and I were the only two Macross Worlders representin' at this particular event. It was basically a gathering of Macross fans and cosplayers to mingle, get drunk, groove to some Macross tunes and just celebrate all things Macross.

There were a lot more cosplayers than I had expected and most of them were more than willing to talk about their history with Macross and how they made their costumes. There were a lot of Rankas and Sherryls on stage, dancing along to various Frontier songs, a pair of Minmays and a pair of Basaras, as well as one very special cosplayer who came all the way down from GUNMA! (a 100km+ train ride) after work to rock out as RAY!

Some highlights:

THIS is what happens when you give Ranka beer ^^;

SAVE is a little wary of strange manthing Minmay. Is it a trap? (actually ...no, it was actually a girl ^^;)

But he likes the cute Minmay with the blue contact lenses much better methinks ;-)

Sherryl seems to have misplaced her drinking money.... (This is DJ Sou - she also performs at Yoko Kanno parties dressed as Faye Valentine)

And of course Basara just wants to rock out.

Cool pics! Did anyone take a vid? If so, can you post a link? Thanks!

Ahahaha, none that shall ever be posted Im afraid. Pics are one thing, but to me, posting vids of something like this crosses certain privacy boundaries of those involved, sorry.
